What is Gender-Affirming Surgery?

Gender-affirming surgery is a procedure or combination of procedures that work to transform a patient’s facial features to match their gender identity. These can include either male-to-female, also called feminization, or female-to-male, also called masculinization, methods that sculpt facial features to achieve a more socially recognizable female or male appearance. Dr Rodman also works with non binary patients who wish to appear androgynous.

What types of Gender-Affirming Surgery procedures are available?

A wide variety of methods and procedures can be used to refine and fine-tune the patient’s desired facial appearance.

Facial Feminization

Feminine facial features typically include brighter eyes, softer lines, and more delicate contours. These can all be achieved with natural-looking results through several different facial feminization and gender-affirming techniques.

Hairline Lowering

This procedure, which is sometimes known as forehead reduction or scalp advancement surgery, produces a lower, more typical female pattern hairline.

Brow Bone Reduction

This technique seeks to surgically reduce the browbone. This reduces the ridge of bone that is between the brows and under the brows, which often causes a heavy masculine eye appearance. Reducing prominent brows helps make the eyes appear brighter, softer and more feminine.

Orbital Rim Reduction

The ridge of bone on the side of the eyes can be contoured and reduced for a softened, feminine appearance.


A brow lift can raise and shape the brows into a more arched and feminine position. A lifted, arched brow is often a part of the transformative process of facial feminization.


Upper or lower eyelid surgery, known as blepharoplasty, gives the eyes a wider, brighter appearance.


A more delicate nose size, shape, and contour can provide a subtle yet impactful way to bring a more feminine feel to the face.

Cheek Augmentation

A lifted, contoured, and youthful volume can be achieved using cheek implants, fat grafting, or fat transfer.

Buccal Fat Removal

If round cheeks present a plump look, slenderizing the cheeks via buccal fat pad removal can give patients an extremely feminine glow.

Lip Lift

The lips are often a top indicator of male or female physicality, and a lip lift or augmentation can provide a turned-up, feminine pucker.

Chin and Jaw Reduction

The jawline is another area where masculine versus feminine traits can sometimes be obvious. Jaw reduction or chin reduction can have a huge positive impact for a more delicate facial appearance.

Skin Tightening and Resurfacing

A more youthful appearance is sometimes the key to achieving a feminine look. Using skin resurfacing and skin tightening methods like the melange power peel or Renuvion Skin Tightening, sometimes called Renuvion J Plasma, can improve skin tone, texture, and laxity.

Adam's Apple Reduction

This procedure, also known as a tracheal shave, reduces the appearance of one of the most traditionally male physical traits; a large Adam’s apple.


Youthfulness and simply a refined contour can work to soften and feminize the face, which can be effectively achieved using a facelift.

Facial Masculinization

In contrast, facial masculinization gender-affirming methods work to create sharper, more heavily defined lines and a sense of projection and bulk.
