We are all aware of facial characteristics that make male and female faces readily distinguishable. Everyday we are asked by ladies to make changes in unwanted inherited physical features so they can achieve a more feminine appearance. These procedures include lowering the hairline or changing eyebrow position. Dr. Fleming first brought the hairline browlift procedure to the practice and both doctors have advanced this technique to lower the hairline, lift the forehead, and remove excess bony prominence above the eyebrows. There are many other examples of these feminization procedures such as reducing a large nose by changing the size and contour so it is more proportional to their surrounding fine facial features. The open rhinoplasty technique was pioneered by doctors Fleming and Mayer in the United States. Other facial feminization procedures include enhancing cheek projection and contour, augmenting the lips and narrowing the jawline.
There are many examples of all of these feminizing treatments throughout this website. Dr. Mayer has incorporated many of these techniques in his work with transgender patients.
