Male To Female Transition

Plastic Surgery in Miami

Why choose Dr. Mendieta for Male To Female Transition?

Miami Dr. Constantino Mendieta (M.D., F.A.C.S.) is a board-certified plastic surgeon who performs male to female transition operations.

  • Facial Feminization*

    By softening tissues and manipulating bones, facial feminization surgery can transform a masculine aesthetic into the female equivalent.* Many patients view this type of feminization surgery as a full acceptance into a new gender identity. Because male and female appearances have distinct features, facial feminization surgery is necessary to move from one appearance to the next.* As a general rule, facial feminization softens, accentuates, and rounds masculine features. The overall goal is an oval shaped feminine profile as opposed to a square shape masculine profile.*

  • Forehead Contouring*

    Forehead contouring repositions masculine features into feminine features.* Through a sequence of cosmetic surgeries, brow bones are shaped, eye brows are elevated, and an overall feminine appearance is achieved.* Through hairline incisions excess bone structure over the front sinuses is removed to reveal a more open aesthetic in an around the eyes.* Eye brows become arched to create a female look.* If you are considering forehead contouring procedures and have a receding hairline, you may not be a candidate for this male to female transformation surgery.* A thorough consultation with a cosmetic medical professional is advised.

  • Cheek Extension*

    Male profiles are often flat and wide while female facial profiles protrude. Through the use of bone grafting, fat injection, and synthetic implants, masculine shaped cheeks can appear more defined.* As with any surgery, incisions are required. In the case of check sculpting, incisions are hidden inside the mouth for zero visible scars.*

  • Rhinoplasty*

    Because every nose is different, every rhinoplasty surgery must be customized to fit the individual’s needs. Rhinoplasty begins with a small columella incision which allows access to the nasal cavity. Any bulges are minimized through a sequence of purposeful osteotomies (fractures).* The bridge and tip of each nose is narrowed and accentuated.* If any internal septum issues are present they will be tended to as the nose is aligned for a sleek, symmetrical appearance.*

  • Lip Augmentation*

    Because female lips are typically fuller than male lips, lip augmentation plumps and firms upper and lower lips.* This type of feminization can be achieved through fat injections, skin grafting, and by injecting cosmetic fillers.* Men usually have a longer distance between the bases of their noses and the top of their lips resulting in a stretched appearance. Feminine lip augmentation lifts the newly plumped tissue to create a pouty effect.*

  • Mandible Reduction/Contouring*

    Through mandible reduction surgery, wide, bulky jaw lines of male patients are contoured and molded into a more feminine look.* Excess bones in the male jaw are cut away to reveal a softer, feminine contour.* Incisions are made from within the mouth to minimize any visible scarring.*

  • Chin Surgery*

    The length and width of a chin can be decreased through a small cut inside a patient’s mouth.* A physician will consult with candidates before prepping for surgery in order to create the shapeliest chin possible.* The overall outcome is achieved by cutting, adding, and reshaping the bones of the chin.* The finished chin shape will be held in place by small plates.

  • Tracheal Shave (Thyroid Cartilage Reduction)*

    Through a microscopic, concealed incision, a main masculine identifier can be addressed.* Often called an “Adam’s apple” the trachea can be shaved to drastically reduce its appearance thereby creating a feminine aesthetic.* Patients should heavily consider possible risk factors such as voice changes before deciding on a tracheal shave.*

  • Buttock-Body Contouring*

    As two of the most popular procedures in our office, liposuction and tummy tucks can enhance male and female appearances.* We also offer cutting-edge butt lift techniques that are increasingly popular.

  • Cosmetic Breast Surgery*

    Our clinic offers a full array of breast enhancement options for every gender. Specializing in female-to-male procedures, patients can choose from breast lifts, reduction, and full removals.
