The core element of our set of TrueShape FFS Procedures
In more than 98% of the cases, the answer is YES.
A regular Type III forehead reconstruction does the following:
The upper third of the face – namely the eyes, the eyebrows, and the forehead – constitute crucial facial gender markers. Consensus in the world-class surgery field is, that this forehead area is about 85% responsible for a person to be perceived as male or female. These facial gender markers will all be removed.
Besides doing that, our Type K forehead reconstruction is a step ahead of type III reconstruction and creates a truly attractive and natural female forehead. This translates into appealing and wider eye expression.
Dr. Kaushik uses a fine hairline incision to access your forehead. The incision technique is such, that all of your hairline hair is preserved and that hair can actually grow through the incision line later.
Dr. Kaushik then performs all necessary bone work using surgical tools like burrs and Piezo-ultrasound cutters. True to his TrueShape FFS approach, Dr. Kaushik’s Type K forehead reconstruction technique eliminates the bony ridge in the area just above the eyes and beneath the eyebrows – commonly known as “brow bossing”.
Since plastic surgery always aims to keep or improve function, your minimized sinus will be intact and functional after surgery.
Part of the upper orbital rim bones (bones around the eye) will be shaved to further eliminate the deep-set eyes, also opening up the space around the eyes to create a feminine and softer look.
Usually, a feminizing rhinoplasty is performed together with a forehead reconstruction since the nose is connected to – and its top part originates – from the lower forehead area (frontonasal transition).
The nose-forehead angle between males and females is different.
When a feminizing rhinoplasty gets combined with the Type K forehead reconstruction, then the best possible result can be achieved, creating this wonderful, open forehead-to-nose angle.
