Yes, Facial Feminization Surgery (FFS) can change the shape of your jawline through a procedure called jaw contouring or mandibular reduction. Jaw contouring is a surgical intervention that involves modifying the jawbone to achieve a more feminine appearance.
The jaw contouring procedure can address various aspects of the jawline, including:
- Jawbone Reduction: If you have a prominent or square jawline, the surgeon can perform a reduction of the jawbone to create a more tapered and feminine jawline.
- Chin Reshaping: Chin surgery (genioplasty) can be performed to alter the size and shape of the chin, which can influence the overall appearance of the jawline.
- Jaw Angle Reduction: The angle between the jawbone and the ear can be reduced to achieve a softer and more feminine jawline contour.
The goal of jaw contouring in FFS is to create a jawline that aligns with the overall facial proportions and enhances the feminine appearance of the face. Skilled FFS surgeons take into account the individual’s facial anatomy and aesthetic goals to achieve natural-looking and balanced results.
During the pre-operative consultations, you can discuss your desired changes to the jawline with your FFS surgeon and understand the potential outcomes. Keep in mind that jaw contouring, like any surgical procedure, carries certain risks, and it’s crucial to choose a qualified and experienced surgeon specializing in FFS to minimize complications and achieve the best possible results.
Following your surgeon’s post-operative instructions and attending follow-up appointments will support a smooth recovery and ensure that you are satisfied with the changes to your jawline achieved through FFS.
