Gender-Affirming Facial Surgery

Facial surgery is a catch-all term that encompasses a number of masculinization and feminization procedures. These are:

Facial Implants

Procedures such as the lip and cheek implants. Facial implants can also be installed in the chin, jawline, and elsewhere to help achieve a more masculine or feminine appearance.

“I had an excellent experience at Rowe Plastic Surgery. The staff were accomodating and informed, making me feel comfortable at every step. I highly recommend the team here!


Incisions are made in the hairline or behind the ears, excess skin removed, and the face repositioned for a more taut, youthful appearance.

Injectable Fillers

These injections, such as Juvederm and Restylane, help replenish lost volume in the face, fill in fine lines and wrinkles, and plump up problem areas.


A surgical procedure in which the size and shape of the nose are altered. This is another popular procedure among MTF patients who desire a smaller, more feminine nose.

These are only some of the facial surgeries commonly performed on transgender patients. They can all be conducted independently or in tandem with other procedures to help the patient achieve their desired look.
