What are our gender affirmation services?
- Facial feminization
- Female-to-male top surgery
- Male-to-female breast augmentation
- Body feminization
Facial feminization consists of several procedures to reduce typical masculine features from your profile. These procedures include: forehead recontouring to feminize the brow and hairline, mandible and facial re-contouring, a tracheal shave, and earlobe reduction.
One notable masculine feature is the amount of prominence in the brow. Dr. Murphy makes a small incision to reposition both the brow and hairline for a feminine resemblance.
A mandible and facial re-contouring involve restructuring the lower face, including the prominence of the chin and mandibular borders through a small incision.
Through a tracheal shave, Dr. Murphy extracts excess cartilage to decrease the definition of the Adam’s Apple in the central neck for a greater feminine form.
An earlobe reduction involves downsizing the earlobe and in some cases, the entire ear through small incisions.
Female-To-Male Top Surgery
Since every transgender man seeking a transition will have distinctively sized breasts, each patient will require a personalized approach and extent of surgery. Female-to-male top surgery is a unique composite of reconstructive and cosmetic approaches, both of which will be determined based on your assessment with Dr. Murphy.
One of the physical qualities that differ men from women is the location of fat deposits. Body feminization consists of several procedures including buccal fat pad removal, buttock re-contouring through liposuction and fat grafting, and breast augmentation.
The buccal fat pad is located in the mid-cheek area. With its removal through a small incision, Dr. Murphy can downsize facial fullness, resulting in more defined cheekbones for a greater feminine appeal.
The goal of buttock recontouring is to help shape the body to resemble that of a “feminine hourglass outline”. Fatty deposits from the midriff will be withdrawn and transferred to the buttock area, adding femininity to both the torso and posterior.
Dr. Murphy has performed thousands of breast augmentations. He utilizes gummy bear implantations as they resemble a natural look and feel. Gummy bear implants can also be customized to best accommodate your body’s proportions.
