The insertion of facial implants is one type of procedure available in a group of procedures known as facial feminization surgery (FFS). RSJ Plastic Surgery offers this collection of procedures in West Palm Beach that can feminize a patient’s appearance and minimize traditionally masculine features.
Cheek augmentation is the most common implant-utilizing procedure in FFS. Female cheeks are usually fuller and rounder, with higher, more prominent cheekbones than male cheeks – which are typically flat or recessed. Fuller, higher cheeks also cast more light into the eyes, making them appear bigger, brighter, and more feminine. At RSJ Plastic Surgery, Dr. Jarial can augment your cheeks by inserting facial implants to give the desired feminine appearance.
Facial implants are sometimes used in chin augmentation too but this is much less common – the masculine chin is usually sufficient in size to recontour to a feminine-appearing chin. Typically only when the chin is very weak or an overbite is present are chin implants used.
