What is facial masculinization?

Facial masculinization involves creating stronger, sharper and more masculine features. It may require a set of procedures, which can include:


The nose structure may require reshaping to create a more masculine profile. Male features are typically larger, angular and more prominent, and this especially includes the nose. Creating a more masculine nose profile may require adding cartilage to subtly enlarge the nose or nose bridge. In some cases, a non-surgical approach like liquid rhinoplasty (or nose filler) may be necessary.

Chin augmentation

The classic male chin is longer and squarer in appearance. To create this effect, a chin implant is placed to add volume and structure, and can even be specially customized to better match the patient’s goals and specific anatomy.

Eyelid surgery

During the procedure, issues such as sagging eyelids or undereye bags can be corrected to create a more vital, energetic look.

Cheek alterations

The cheeks may require alteration for a more structured appearance. This can involve excising the buccal fat pad and/or altering the cheekbones’ shape with a custom implant in order to mimic the angularity of the male face.
