Male to female transition – feminization procedures http://drturowski.com/male-to-female-transition-feminization-procedures.html Sat, 14 Jan 2017 12:47:55 +0000 http://drturowski.com/?p=5537

Facial Feminization

Transgender Rhinoplasty

The Rhinoplasty, in Male to Female Transgender patient aims to soften and refine the nose to give a more feminine appearance. This nose job frequently involves reduction in the size of the nose, narrowing of the nose bone and nostrils, together with refinement and lifting of the nose tip to give a natural cute female shape to the nose.

Transgender Brow Lift

Frequently considered one of the most effective feminization procedures for the upper face, a brow lift moves the eyebrows to a higher, more feminine-looking position on the forehead. The procedure is performed by minimally invasive approach through small hidden incisions inside the hairy scalp. With the help on an endoscope natural feminizing lift can be achieved. This plastic surgery is sometimes called a. Endobrow (endoscopic forehead lift).

Transgender Brow Hair Transplant

Moving the hairline forward can significantly feminize the shape of your face while at the same time giving it a more youthful appearance. With scalp advancement procedures and hair transplants to the temporal area the hairline can be changed into more feminine line and a receding hairline eliminated. All of these techniques give the MTF transgender patient a natural, more feminine appearance.

Bossing Removal

The typical male forehead has prominent brow ridges, frontal bossing (frontal bossing is a medical term used to describe a prominent, protruding forehead), and a relatively flat upper forehead. The aim of bossing removal (brow contouring surgery) is to reduce this brow bossing and shape the forehead to give a more feminine smooth, gently curved forehead with the eyebrows above the bony rim of the eye socket. This procedure is frequently combined with hairline lowering and brow lift surgery.

Cheek Implants

The appearance of the cheeks is a facial feature distinctive to men and to women. Augmenting these with fat grafting alone or with permanent cheek implants provides a pleasing feminine shaped face. This augmentation also adds sensuality to the eyes and decreases the mid-face height, which is longer in men. The incisions are completely hidden within the mouth

Lip Enhancement

This is a Plastic Surgery procedure performed to reduce the length of the upper lip, giving a more feminine shape and position of the upper lip. The Lip Lift is commonly combined with lip enhancement or augmentation. This procedure gives shapely, fuller upper and lower lips to feminize the face in a Male to Female Transgender patient. Lip Enhancement can be performed using Dermal Fillers or Lip Implants or by fat transfer.

Chin Reduction / Enhancement

Chin reduction is used to give the transgender patient a more feminine look. This chin reduction transforms a wider, longer, flatter, and more “chiseled”, male-looking chin into a narrower, shorter, and more pointed chin typically associated with a woman’s face. Chin implants are also sometimes used to achieve a more forward projection of the chin, also more common in females. This overall effect can dramatically feminize a face.

Breast Augmentation

Male to Female Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation procedures are performed for the male to female transgender patient. A breast augmentation procedure provides the patient with fuller, feminine breasts that project from the chest, giving the individual true female contours. This augmentation surgery for transgender patients is generally performed when hormone therapy fails to provide satisfactory results.

Since male and female breast tissue is much the same, transgender breast augmentation uses the same techniques as conventional breast enlargement procedures. This includes a variety of different types of breast implants available is a range of materials, textures, shapes, and sizes. Dr Turowski specializes in an endoscopic armpit incision for breast augmentation surgery. This mnimally invasive surgery provides enhances feminine apperacne without ANY breast scars. Favored by other surgeons inframammary (under the breast) incisions can leave conspicuous sometimes keloidal scars. These can be especially visible in the male to female patients who do not have defined inframmary fold.

Hip Enhancement

One of the physical aspects that differentiates the female form from the male is the hip to waist ratio. The ideal female form includes a certain amount of hip curvature, creating a sexy, feminine contour. The attraction of fuller hips in a woman crosses all generations and cultures.

Hip and thigh augmentation can benefit transgender patients seeking the more feminine look. Hip reduction serves to offer a more masculine appeal.

For a more feminine appearance Dr. Turowski can enhance the size of the hips by use of fat transfer procedures and fillers such as Sculptra.

Female to male transition – Masculinization procedures http://drturowski.com/female-to-male-transition-masculinization-procedures.html Fri, 13 Jan 2017 12:54:46 +0000 http://drturowski.com/?p=5541

Facial Masculinization

Transgender Rhinoplasty

For a female to male rhinoplasty procedure we are looking for the opposite effect. Specifically, the bridge of the nose on profile should remain strong and high; a scooped out nose or a ski jump should be avoided. The rotation of the tip of the nose (how turned up or down the nose is) should be subtle in a neutral position and not turned up. The nasal bridge must be straightened and should not be concave, as this tends to feminize the nose.

Transgender Brow Hair Transplant

In some females hairline can adjusted to a more male appearing frontal hairline either with hair removal or transplant. Also brow transplants can be performed to appear more masculine. Beard and moustache cration transplants have been quite popular. We utilize robotic FUE hair trasnaplants without creating ugly linear scars. When performed in this fashion hair transplant procedures are almost painless

Chin Enhancement

To create a more masculine appearance, Dr. Turowski will perform a chin enhancement procedure. Facial masculinization can be accomplished with the use of dermal fillers or facial implants to accentuate the jawline or chin. Most of the time inside a mouth incision can be used for implant placement avoiding visible under the chin scars

Female to Male Chest Surgery (breast reduction)

Several different surgical procedures are available to patients seeking to have breast tissue removed in order to create a masculine chest area.

The plastic surgery process involves removing breast tissue and sometimes excess skin. Options for breast tissue removal include liposuction to the chest and/or more involved surgery, which removes firm and glandular breast tissue as well as the fat that can be removed with the lipo technique. The type of breast reduction surgery that will be right for you is based on your anatomy and personal goals, and is best determined during your consultation with Dr. Turowski.

Hip Reduction

For a more masculine appearance ultrasonic liposuction maybe used to reduce hip and thigh prominence

Dr. Turowski understands the needs of the transgender individual and is experienced in the surgical procedures needed to make the transition as seamless and comfortable as possible.

Transgender Hair Restoration Chicago http://drturowski.com/transgender-hair-restoration-chicago.html Sat, 12 Nov 2016 09:42:32 +0000 http://drturowski.com/?p=5276

For transgender patients, one of the final touches and crowning enhancements to the change they have worked for so long is proper hair restoration.

Hair transplantation is a vital part of gender reassignment.  Whether it’s creating a feminine hairline, filling in a bald area, or adding masculine facial hair, no transgender transformation is complete without the right hair restoration.

Male to Female (MTF) Transformation

For male to female transformation hair restoration can be a personal image-saver.

With hair transplants you can eliminate the need for wigs or hairpieces and the constant worry and self-consciousness that comes with them.  Gone is the concern over being caught in the wind or otherwise exposing an unwanted hairline.

Estrogen therapy can help stabilize hair loss and a receding hair line, but cannot grow back hair that has already been lost, or create a female hairline; for this you need surgical hair restoration like that provided by Dr. Turowski and his team.

If you look closely, you can see that women and men of all ages have different hairlines.  Women have a more rounded line and the hair doesn’t recede at the temples. Men have a far different shape to their hairline. This is part of what establishes the male or female appearance.
Hair transplantation can feminize, creating a hairline that enhances female features.

Female to Male (FTM) Transformation

 Hair on the face is a strikingly male trait. It increases the appearance of adult masculinity.

 For female to male transformation, testosterone treatments can give some much-needed facial hair growth.  However, in many cases this hormone therapy does not result in sufficient hair volume, and is not adequate to grow sideburns, a beard or mustache.  Testosterone can also cause balding.

Transgender hair restoration can replace any balding spots on the head and enhance the look of masculinity by giving the patient the perfect amount of facial hair.

No matter the amount or style of facial hair you desire, Dr. Turowski will be glad to work with you on achieving the exact appearance you’re looking for.

Depending on your timeline, you may want to look into hair restoration early in your transformation, since it can take up to a year to see the final results.

Dr. Turowski always takes great care in making sure your transgender hair restoration is exactly right for you and who you really feel you are.

Please give us a call and schedule your consultation.
