As with the other components of Facial Feminization, nasal surgery is primarily performed to soften this feature. Our goal is to provide you with a more feminine nose, but at the same time, not give you an artificial or overly scooped or pinched look.

Bringing the Misunderstood Gender Out in the Open
with Facial Feminization

I, Dr. Toby Mayer, have spent 40 years mastering the art of facial feminization for transgender patients. Many of the procedures which I developed have given transgender patients the possibility of being the person that they feel they are on the inside. My job has been to make the outside match the inside feelings of femininity that the male-to-female transgender patient has.

Recently, there has been a great deal of attention paid to this issue because of the curiosity of the media with Bruce Jenner. If indeed he is a transgender patient, the process that he is going through is feeling like a woman on the inside, yet having the facial features of a man.

Many people are aware of minor procedures, like shaving the Adam’s apple, which is a secondary male sex characteristic, but are not familiar with the multitude of procedures that are necessary to create the total appearance of the female, in the transgender patient.

So, what are the procedures that we developed for this change? Click here to find out from Dr. Mayer himself!
