FACIAL MASCULINIZATION SURGERY
When having a patient who wishes to masculinize his face, we must always take into account his ideas and his expectations, to define a treatment plan. We have to remember the areas of greatest prominence and impact on a male face; they are the forehead, the nose, the zygomatic bone, the maxillary angles, the chin, and the cricoid cartilage.
The facial features of a man and a woman differ in the following:
- The male skull normally has prominent bone in frontal sinus areas making it larger.
- Male cheekbones are more angled and less rounded than female cheekbones.
- One of the most visible differences between man and woman is that Adam's apple is located in the center of the throat.
- The male nose tends to be longer than the female.
- The male chin tends to be longer and square with the flattest base.
- The male jaws are wide and have prominence of the angle.
