FACIAL FEMINIZATION SURGERY
Facial Feminization Surgery (FFS) refers to a surgery or combination of surgeries that are aimed at softening facial features. As our faces all have different shapes and our eyes have different aesthetic ideals, there is a wide variability in the surgeries that are done. Feminizing surgery is more artistically, aesthetically, and technically more demanding than other facial cosmetic surgeries, as surgical plans have to be guided by patient goals and expectations more intimately than with other procedures. Though many patients that seek FFS are transgender (particularly trans-female) individuals, there are many cisgender people that seek it as well.
The surgeries offered as components of facial feminizing surgery are:
• Hairline lowering (or raising)
• Brow lift
• Brow contouring
• Eyelid lift (blepharoplasty)
• Neck lift
• Lip lift
• Mandibular (Jaw) contouring
• Chin implant
• Adam’s Apple reduction (“tracheal shave”)
• Fat Transfer
• Dermal Fillers (Restylane, Juvederm, and Radiesse lines)
• Neuromodulators (Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin)
All of the surgeries above are performed on cisgender individuals as well, though the goals of the surgery may differ. For example, a typical rhinoplasty may address a hump on the profile of the nose, while a feminizing rhinoplasty will focus on increasing the rotation of the nose to give a more feminine look. Similarly, a feminizing brow lift focuses on giving the eyebrows a feminine arch rather than raising the whole eyebrow up equally.
We take care to make sure that all of our patient’s concerns are addressed during the initial consultation, and formulate a surgical plan together. We take the time to get to know our patients beyond their facial concerns, and feel strongly that this enables us to deliver superior care.

“I had a great experience in the office today. As soon as I walked in I felt immediately welcomed by Noelle. She did a great job of helping me understand the process before I began. Today I had laser hair removal done Cindy Roberts. She did a wonderful job by explaining me step by step of what she was doing. That made me feel really comfortable as I sat in the chair. Dr Summit Kundaria worked on my upper lip for the hair removal and explained how everything works and what I should do once I walked out. Over all you can tell how each employee values customer care and the quality of their work. I would definitely recommend this place.”
“Awesome experience! Staff is exceptional and Dr. Kundaria is very knowledgeable and professional. Highly recommend”
“I had such a wonderful experience at this office. They made me feel so comfortable and answered every question I had about my procedure. So far my results have been fantastic and I can’t wait to see what the final result will be! I would highly recommend Dr. Kundaria and his staff!”
“Dr. Kundaria really listens to his patients, something not always found in plastic surgeons. Professional from the consultation, thru the procedure and even called to check on me after I was at home. I’ve also had injectables done by Dr Kundaria and always happy with results. I would and have recommend him to anyone who asks.”
“Dr. Kundaria and his staff is top notch. They were both were acceptive to my needs and I walked out of their office today feeling more alive than when I walked in.”
