What are our gender affirmation services?
- Facial feminization
- Female-to-male top surgery
- Male-to-female breast augmentation
- Body feminization
Successful facial feminization surgery relies on a deep understanding of the key factors leading to a softer, more balanced facial appearance all while reducing masculine features. We want to achieve a natural arching brow over a smoother, less prominent boney structure. Dr. Murphy has developed a single procedure that can achieve a more feminine, smoother brow while also advancing the hairline through a single incision blended into the margin of the hairline. Eyelid surgery can lead to a more youthful, less tired look with a feminine up-slope to the lower lid.
Mid-facial re-contouring gives a more balanced look by increasing the width of your cheeks and potentially reducing the width of your mandible or chin-areas, granting your profile a heart-shaped appearance. Many of our patients benefit from either a cheek lift or a mini-facelift to help turn back the clock while adding feminine features: a softer jowl as well as a tighter neck. To decrease prominence of the Adam’s apple, one of our most feminizing procedures we perform is a tracheal shave.
Rhinoplasty is another key component used at the Murphy Gender Center to give your face its best feminine form. Dr. Murphy has extensive experience in both open and closed rhinoplastic techniques. A thorough consultation and an extra visit for digital imaging of your nose will help us discuss your desires in greater detail with Dr. Murphy.
Once we have established an overall plan, Dr. Murphy will focus on the fine details through refined techniques. These may include a lip augmentation to give a more feminine appeal, a chin implant, or cheek implant to refine your features.
Female-To-Male Top Surgery
Breast size varies from person to person. Each FTM top surgery patient we see will have distinctively sized breasts and 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 removing the buccal fat pad, 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 enhancement procedures during his 25 years in practice. Through a careful consultative process, he will help you decide which implant choice is best for you. The most common type of implant he uses is the high cohesive silicone implant, otherwise known as the “gummy bear implant” with a specific focus on size and proportion. You and Dr. Murphy will work closely together to determine which profile of implant will best meet your goals.
