Facial Masculinisation for Trans-men

Madrid | Zurich

Our professional team is renowned for leading the gender affirming surgery field. This is why we feel proud to be pioneering the concepts of Facial Masculinisation Surgery (FMS). Anatomical facial differences between men and women are quite characteristic; nonetheless, the FMS offering, unlike Facial Feminisation Surgery (FFS), is still very limited world-wide.

For many trans-men, FMS is an essential procedure to improve their social life, self-esteem and life quality. At Dr. Richard Fakin’s clinics, we are able to procure  more masculine facial features, ranging from rather subtle to substantial modifications, applying surgical and/or non-surgical techniques.

Surgical techniques

The key components to achieving a masculine-looking face are: the reshaping of chin, jaw and nose, and the skilful redistribution of facial volume.

Chin and jaw: chin implant, jaw reshaping, lower jaw area volume increase, mainly its angles by using implants, fat transfer or hyaluronic acid fillers. Additionally, the jaw angles and the rest of the jaw area can be shaped using intra-dermal threading.

Nose: masculinising surgical rhinoseptoplasty, nose reshaping via hyaluronic acid fillers.

Facial volume redistribution: by applying an advanced liposuction and lipofilling technology to specific areas, harvested fat is reused to enhance the volume of areas such as chin, jaw, temples and the area above the eyebrows.

Upper and/or lower lip volume reduction leaving no visible scars.

Non-invasive treatments such as hyaluronic acid fillers, Botox and intra-dermal threading.

What are scars like and where are they located?

All scars in FMS are invisible and located in concealed areas, like the inside of the mouth, the nose or behind the hairline. We apply specific treatments to minimise scar visibility.

Postoperative care

Recovery time for the facial area is much shorter than for the rest of the body, due to its high rates of blood perfusion. Generally, the postoperative swelling resides about one week after the intervention. Moreover, the face is an excellent area for fat transfer procedures.

Results are long-lasting and the combination of modifications will define a masculine-looking face. We tailor our surgical approach to each patient’s needs and anatomical characteristics.
