Facial Masculinization Surgery (FMS)

Facial masculinization surgery (FMS) is a collection of surgical procedures designed to transform the feminine features of a trans man’s face and make them appear more rugged and masculine.It is one of several gender-affirming surgeries provided by Dr. Josef Hadeed in Miami, Florida.

This procedure is appropriate for trans men suffering from gender dysphoria, a condition that develops when a person identifies differently from their assigned or biological gender. People with gender dysphoria experience severe discomfort, driving many to seek a surgical solution.

How Does FMS Treat Gender Dysphoria?

Along with other gender affirmation surgeries, including top surgery and body contouring, FMS is performed to help trans men align themselves physically to their genuine gender identity.

FMS helps trans men feel more masculine by providing the following benefits:

  • Results in a more comforting mirror image
  • Improves confidence
  • Decreases depression
  • Decreases stress
  • Reduces social anxiety

Are You Ready for FMS Surgery?

Choosing any form of gender affirmation surgery is a deeply personal choice and must be considered thoroughly. Some trans men can develop more masculine features with hormone therapy, while others need or want a more dramatic change.

Trans men who have difficulty with their feminine facial features may lack self-esteem and contend with a host of emotions. Facial masculinization surgery can improve a patient’s confidence by masculinizing the appearance of their face.

The World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH) offers these criteria to consider when seeking surgical treatment of gender dysphoria. Patients being considered for gender affirmation surgery should fall into the following categories:

  • Have good physical health*
  • Have a well-documented and persistent diagnosis of gender dysphoria
  • Have the ability and capacity to consent to make fully informed medical and treatment decisions
  • Are 18 years old (in the US) or have reached the age of majority in their country

*Patients approved for surgery will not be able to smoke for a specified amount of time (determined by the doctor) before and after the surgery.

During your consultation, Dr. Hadeed will discuss with you each surgical technique that can help you achieve your aesthetic goals and formulate the ideal surgical treatment plan based on your anatomy and desires.

What Are Your Facial Masculinization Options?

Men looking to masculinize their face can choose from:

  • Blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) involves removing excess skin and recontouring the underlying fat in the upper and lower eyelids to create more masculine and younger-looking eyes.
  • Forehead augmentation can also masculinize the forehead by lengthening and expanding the space between the hairline and the eyebrows and creating a more angular and prominent appearance.
  • Rhinoplasty, or nose surgery, masculinizes the nose by increasing its size, length, and width for a larger, more manly appearance.
  • Cheek augmentation places cheek implants or fat grafting between the skin and bone to provide trans men an angular, more masculine face.
  • Chin contouring increases and reshapes the size of the chin by sculpting the bone into a stronger, more angular, and masculine appearance.
  • Jaw contouring masculinizes the jaw and neck by widening the margins of the jaw for a more chiseled look.
  • Tracheal enhancement (Adam’s apple enlargement) is performed to create a central neck bulge by enlarging the appearance of the Adam’s apple.
