MALE TO FEMALE:
In the genetic male, the eyebrows are usually positioned lower and the forehead bone is more prominent. An eyebrow lift and contouring of the forehead bone give a more feminine and softer appearance. This surgery is relatively minor with a low complication rate. Facelifts, rhinoplasty (nose), eyelid surgery, laser resurfacing, lip enlargement, and facial implants improve feminization. Liposuction, abdominoplasty, thigh lifts, etc. improve body contour. These procedures are usually performed as an outpatient.
FEMALE TO MALE:
Chin implants, rhinoplasty, and liposuction are among the procedures to improve appearance.
POST OPERATIVE RECOVERY:
You usually need to remain in Los Angeles for at least a week after breast augmentation, facial surgery, and other procedures. I believe it is important that you do not leave town unless we are reasonably sure that no complications will occur.
The price for the different cosmetic procedures is determined by the operation necessary. Patients from outside the area are encouraged to send us photos, preferably on email as jpegs. Once these photos are obtained, Dr. Alter will phone you for a consultation.
