Cosmetic Plastic Surgery Procedures

Female Feminization Surgery has become very common amongst the transgender population as many now choose to seek plastic surgery to have their physical appearance better reflect their inner self. In sharing her story, Caitlyn Jenner shed light on just what can be achieved with plastic surgery and perhaps gave others confidence to make these changes for themselves. In fact, Female Feminization Surgery is often sought out prior to gender reassignment surgery so that transgender females can feel more confident in their appearance as well as more socially accepted as a female.

For a male transitioning to female, there are many surgeries available to help refine the male face, the most popular of which is rhinoplasty. The shape of a nose has the ability to give a face a more feminine appearance, which is why patients undergoing a transition find rhinoplasty surgery to have a profound and transformative effect.

The nose being the most central feature of the face can also make a dramatic difference to the male face. By reducing the width and length of the nasal bridge and by reshaping, lifting and refining the nasal tip, a male face can often look more female with rhinoplasty surgery alone. In fact, it’s quite common for rhinoplasty to be the initial Female Feminization Surgery for the transgender female. Some transitioning patients choose to have this surgery alone due to the significant visible impact a rhinoplasty can have, while others may choose to combine this surgery with two or three other surgeries so that they achieve a more impactful result.

While rhinoplasty is the most popular procedure, other common transgender surgeries include Brow Reduction, Brow Lift, Adam’s Apple Reduction, Cheek Augmentation, Lip Lift, Chin Reduction or Jaw Contouring. Depending on ones’ needs, typically, male patients transitioning to female will choose more than one surgery combined with rhinoplasty. Rhinoplasty, Brow Reduction and Adam’s Apple Reduction (Laryngeal Shave) are often the first 3 “go-to” surgeries due to the prominence of these male characteristics. Quite often, patients will then proceed to seek further refinement to their face with a Cheek Augmentation or Lip Augmentation.

Primary Rhinoplasty

When undergoing a rhinoplasty for the purpose of transitioning from male to female, it’s imperative to choose a Facial Plastic Surgeon who is an expert in Female Feminization Surgery. While many plastic surgeons may perform rhinoplasty on males, there are other factors to take into consideration when performing rhinoplasty on a male who is transitioning to female. The skull of a male is larger than that of a female and therefore must be considered in rhinoplasty surgery.

The overall balance and facial harmony must be maintained as a nose that is too small or upturned may look unnatural and not well proportioned. Males typically have a more prominent nose, a wider brow ridge, an obtrusive dorsal ridge, wider nostrils and wider nasal tip, therefore, refining these features and reshaping the nasal profile is the goal of Transgender Rhinoplasty.

As far as the upper age limit and just how old one can be to undergo rhinoplasty surgery? That too depends on a patients’ physical and mental health. A mature patient that has a chronic medical condition such as asthma, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure or an active uncontrolled disease would likely not be a candidate for rhinoplasty surgery.

African American Rhinoplasty

African American rhinoplasty is a unique procedure that requires the expertise of a facial cosmetic surgeon who is experienced in handling and enhancing the natural beauty of African American noses. Generally speaking, there are differences between the noses of African American patients and European patients.

For example, African-American noses tend to have thicker skin, wider nasal passages, flatter nasal bridges, and wider nasal bones, as well as other subtle differences in facial features. While Caucasian patients may wish to reduce the overall size of the nose with “reduction rhinoplasty surgery”, an African American nose is a little bit different. It is never our goal to “make a Caucasian nose”. When we complete an African American rhinoplasty, it is our goal to ensure that the patient receives a nose that preserves their ethnicity and respects their ethnic background.

Asian Rhinoplasty

Asian rhinoplasty works with the unique anatomy of an Asian face, building from the natural beauty and providing a result respectful of a patient’s heritage. The goal of an Asian rhinoplasty is to create a harmonious, natural and refined nose that is compatible with Asian patient’s facial features.

Asian Rhinoplasty Procedures

Primary Rhinoplasty

The goal of Asian rhinoplasty is not to create a Caucasian nose, but to augment the pleasing features of an Asian nose within the context of Asian-specific facial proportions.

If you are seeking an Asian rhinoplasty, you want a surgeon who is familiar with Asian facial proportions. Dr. Solomon is highly skilled, experienced and accomplished surgeon in this field, having completed Asian rhinoplasty procedures for nearly 20 years. Through the initial consultation process, Dr. Solomon will discuss with you the goals of your Asian rhinoplasty and what is realistically achievable with regard to your own unique anatomy.

Persian Rhinoplasty

Persian rhinoplasty is extremely popular within the Persian culture. Both Persian women and Persian men are accepting of the benefits one can achieve with rhinoplasty surgery. Persian patients are often knowledgeable and open minded regarding cosmetic surgery, particularly those in the greater Toronto community. It is our goal with each Persian rhinoplasty, to reshape the nose according to the patient’s interests, without losing the natural beauty of their Persian features.

Persian rhinoplasty makes up a significant percentage of the rhinoplasty procedures we perform at our clinic. So much so, that Dr. Solomon is considered a highly respected expert in the Toronto Persian community. Many female Persians come to Dr. Solomon looking to reduce the appearance of an overly dominant nose or sometimes to create a more intrinsic facial appearance.

“Persians are an interesting case. They have slightly thicker skin and are often looking for a relatively significant change to their nose to better balance other facial features, such as large eyes and high cheek bones,” says Dr. Solomon. If you are a member of the Toronto Persian community seeking a rhinoplasty, Dr. Philip Solomon is a name you have likely heard many times, consistent with his outstanding results.
