FACIAL FEMINIZATION SURGERY

MTF Chin surgery

A male chin is usually squarer, with more pronounced and defined angles. It has a bonier volume and tends to be more vertical than a female chin, which tends to be more rounded in shape and angles. Chin feminization surgery can modify different aspects such as width, height and projection.

WHAT IS MTF Chin surgery?

Surgery to feminise a trans woman’s chin is often performed in conjunction with the jaw reshaping technique. Both techniques combined will strikingly feminise the entire lower third of your face, depending on your needs.

These surgeries belong to the group of techniques used to achieve feminization of facial features in trans women.

BEFORE A MTF Chin surgery

Before surgery

The chin is usually squarer in men than in women. Sharper angles give a more masculine appearance, while rounder angles tend to suggest more feminine features.

The operation

Chin feminization surgery is often performed in combination with jaw reshaping to achieve optimal results.

The aim of this surgery is to achieve a less square shape of the chin by grinding or filing the bone. Piezoelectric or ultrasound technology is used to perform this technique, just as it is used in rhinoplasty (nose surgery) and craniofacial surgery (facial feminization). The bone is thus approached without injuring or affecting any soft or noble structures.

During chin feminization surgery we can also modify the length, width and placement of your chin, projecting or making it recede depending on your anatomy. In cases where the chin should be brought forward, microplates and micro-screws may be required to provide stability to the bone remodelling.

Recovery

As this is intraoral approach surgery, the stitches are resorbable, so they do not have to be removed.

For the first few days you will have to sleep with your head elevated and opt for a soft diet. During the early weeks, we recommend you use a chin guard. Always follow our IM GENDER medical team’s advice to hasten your recovery.

The results

Once the swelling has gone down, you will see the results: a rounder chin that will help feminise your face.

TIPS AFTER MTF Chin surgery

RELATIVE REST

In the early days, avoid lifting weights and squat down by lowering your head before your body. Furthermore, you should sleep with your head elevated.

PLAYING SPORT AGAIN

Before restarting your sports routine, check with your doctor when it is appropriate to start and what type of physical activity is most suitable until you fully recover. In any case, you should not play any sport for 15 days after surgery.

DIET

If you have undergone chin feminization, we recommend you follow a soft diet for the first seven days after the operation.
