Do I Need Facial Feminization?

Most patients have been living as a woman for years.

Once our patients see their image in the mirror reflect how they feel, they find a renewed sense of wellbeing. Our patients often opt for facial feminization after living and identifying as a woman for years, with most telling us they’ve felt uncomfortable in their body since childhood.

The best way to know which facial feminization procedures will help you achieve your goals is to talk with Dr. Clevens. Dr. Clevens has decades of experience customizing treatment plans that help patients achieve the more feminine look they want.

Benefits of Facial Feminization

Gain feminine features, not less masculine ones.

Realize your natural femininity that reflects who you are. Dr. Clevens understands that his transgender patients require facial plastic surgery techniques that highlight their femininity, not techniques that simply make features appear less masculine. 

As such, he doesn’t apply the same techniques used on cisgender patients, ensuring you achieve your desired look. Patients who receive facial feminization often remark on their improved quality of life.

Facial Feminization Procedure

Your safety and comfort are our priority.

Your treatment plan is customized by Dr. Clevens to achieve your goals. The length of your surgery and recovery period will depend on the procedures you select. Dr. Clevens is known for achieving the most natural look possible, carefully hiding incisions in the natural folds of your skin. He and his team are with you every step of the way to prepare you for surgery and guide you through the recovery process and help you achieve optimal results.

Some patients elect to combine facial feminization with other transfeminine gender-confirmation surgeries, like top surgery. Our breast and body specialists often partner with Dr. Clevens: They perform your top surgery and he performs your facial feminization surgery. This ensures you receive treatment from the best of the best in both facial plastic surgery and plastic surgery of the breast and body.

Talk with our team about your desired outcomes and learn more about your specific procedure. Our surgeons will be happy to walk you step by step through the process so you can make the most informed treatment decision.

Facial Feminization Recovery

Recovery time varies based on procedures performed.

Your recovery will largely depend on the treatments you choose. Unlike some doctors who may perform this surgery in their office, Dr. Clevens performs this procedure in a fully accredited Ambulatory Surgery Center (ASC) that exceeds the most stringent state and national accreditation standards, providing you the highest level of safety available. An anesthesiologist is alongside Dr. Clevens throughout the entire process. 

Meet with Dr. Clevens to discuss your goals and learn more about the recovery time for your desired treatment plan.
