Facial Feminization

Conveniently located to serve New York City, Queens, Bronx, Brooklyn, Long Island

Facial feminization (FFS) will allow you to express your authentic self. Dr. Bradley’s procedures will not only soften your facial features and make them more feminine, but they will also project your beauty. Dr. Bradley’s extensive training and prominent career in Craniofacial and Cosmetic Surgery has honed his skills to be able to provide the best outcomes. This allows him to address all soft tissue (skin, fat, muscle) and hard tissue (bone, cartilage) modifications. His methods utilize 3D imaging, virtual planning, and cutting-edge surgical instrumentation that he designed.

The ultimate goal of facial feminization is to avoid mis-gendering in social and public situations. However, it is also important to marry the concepts of femininity and beauty together with FFS procedures. Dr. Bradley will work with you to design the best surgical strategy in achieving these goals. Dr. Bradley’s patients appreciate his caring and sensitive nature. He will personally see you during your first consultation and be there for you preoperatively, postoperatively, and during follow-up sessions.

Exploring Facial Feminization Procedures

Our Facial Feminization Surgery (FFS) procedures encompass a spectrum of techniques, each designed to accentuate the inherent beauty of your unique features. Among them, you’ll find:

  • Forehead Contouring: By reshaping the brow and hairline, this procedure softens the overall appearance, achieving a more feminine look.
  • Rhinoplasty: Tailoring the nose’s structure refines your facial harmony, contributing to a delicate and feminine aesthetic.
  • Tracheal Shave: This procedure minimizes the prominence of the Adam’s apple, a distinctively masculine feature, to create a smoother neckline.
  • Jaw and Chin Surgery: Customized jaw and chin adjustments sculpt your lower face for a softer, more feminine appearance.

“Dr Bradley patiently listened to all of my goals regarding FFS to formulate a tailor fit plan that works best for me. We discussed these goal and devised a plan over several appointments. Additionally, he employed the latest technology in imaging, ordered a CT scan of my facial structure, built a model with guides for my surgery and took 3D imaging of my face. When the day of the surgery arrived his surgical team was amazing. Sabrina the Physician Assistant held my hand as the anesthesia took effect. the 7-hour surgery seemed like it was just a moment later.. During my recovery an amazing group of Lenox Hill Hospital staff tended to my every need. De. Bradley stopped by on his day off to visit me in the hospital to check on my recovery. It’s been well over a month now and my face is healing well and the brushing is gone. I am starting to see results as expected. De, Bradley is an artist and Sabrina is Dr Bradley’s right hand person. Thanks to Lia for her patience with all the paperwork. I highly recommend Dr. Bradley and his team to anyone considering FFS. Kudos to him and his team. Thanks Doctor!
