Transgender Rhinoplasty in Beverly Hills & Los Angeles
Transgender rhinoplasty is increasing in popularity these days. 1 in 37,000 individuals identify with being born into the body of the wrong sex, with male to female gender transitioning being at a ratio of 3 to 1. One of the most pivotal procedures in feminizing a masculine face is the transgender rhinoplasty.
In a transgender rhinoplasty the overall size of the nose is reduced and the nasal angles are sculpted to align more closely with those of a female. Females generally have more prominent cheekbones, as well as a finer more delicate nose that that of males. Their noses are usually slightly rotated at the tip as well. In order to achieve these similarities, a fat transfer may be used in addition to the rhinoplasty, to augment the cheeks and to soften facial angles.
The difficulty in this type of rhinoplasty is that male rhinoplasties are more complicated in general, as often times surgeons are more skilled in rhinoplasty on women since they are more common. Male rhinoplasty is therefore specialized to begin with and certain specifics need to be taken into account such as their thicker skin.
Dr. Simoni is a skilled rhinoplasty specialist with extensive experience in male rhinoplasty and more specifically that of the male to female rhinoplasty. He notes that, “The transgender nose surgery will focus on subtly lifting the tip of the nose and reducing the dorsal bridge, which will greatly help create a enhanced feminine appearance.”
