About Facial Feminization@headingTag>
Facial feminization refers to a group of procedures that are designed to transform the face from male to female. For patients who are transitioning, it's a critical step in confirming their gender and feeling as though their outer appearance matches their inner identity. At the core, male and female faces look very different. For example, a woman's face is generally smaller and more delicate, while a man's face tends to be larger and feature more pronounced angles. Women have thinner, arched eyebrows, while men possess a heavier, lower brow. The female nose tends to be smaller and slightly upturned, while the male nose is broad and features a wider tip. And finally, the female chin tends to be considerably less prominent.
Facial feminization surgery with Dr. Jonov involves taking all of these nuances into account and altering the face accordingly, creating a brand new appearance that feels more like you.

Facial Feminization Procedures@headingTag>
Thanks to Dr. Jonov’s extensive experience with facial feminization surgery, his patients in Seattle and surrounding areas have access to virtually any procedure they need to achieve a more feminine appearance. The most common surgeries performed as part of this transformation include:
While male cheeks are broad and flat, females have refined and sculpted cheeks. To achieve the pronounced cheek area many transgender women want, Dr. Jonov will likely recommend a fat transfer, bone grafting, the use of implants or bio-stimulator.
Men and women tend to have very different noses. To feminize this important feature, Dr. Jonov will begin by creating an incision along the columella, which is the piece of cartilage at the base of the nose that separates your nostrils. From there, he will subtly address your masculine characteristics. For example, he may reduce the hump, narrow the bridge and refine the nasal tip. In addition, he will address any asymmetry to ensure a balanced final outcome.
The most feminine lips are full, pouty and sensual – and that's exactly what Dr. Jonov is able to deliver for transgender women. Depending on your needs, this may be accomplished with a fat transfer, dermal fillers or a surgical lip lift.
A universal indicator of masculinity is a strong, angular jaw. As such, it's one of the first areas transgender women typically want to address. Through a discreet incision inside the mouth, Dr. Jonov can taper the jaw and cut away excess bone, achieving a smaller and more feminine appearance.
Dr. Jonov has plenty of experience altering the brow to appear more feminine. To begin, he will create an incision discreetly hidden within your hairline. Through that opening, he will remove excess bone so that your forehead appears less prominent and elevate the eyebrows to create feminine angles.
