Could an Ear Procedure Complete My Facial Feminization Surgery?

Facial feminization surgery is a series of cosmetic procedures that aim to reshape various features for people who haven’t achieved their desired gender-affirming changes to their faces through hormone therapy or those who were born with a less feminine appearance. While FFS can help enhance areas such as your nose and eyes, in some cases, ear surgery can help complete your facial feminization.

At Zinsser Plastic Surgery, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. John Zinsser understands the intricate differences between the male and female face, making him the best facial feminization surgery provider in Richmond, VA.

What Is Ear Surgery?

Typically, women’s ears are significantly smaller than men’s. Otoplasty, or ear surgery, often involves making ears less prominent and reshaping them for a more feminine look. Dr. Zinsser can also address protruding ears or repair damaged lobes in the same procedure.

Otoplasty can be a stand-alone surgery or part of a series of gender-affirmation procedures. To enhance your feminine appearance, ear surgery can:

  • Reduce the length and size of your earlobes
  • Alter your ear shape
  • Move protruding ears closer to your head

How Ear Surgery Complements FFS

The ears and earlobes can be an attractive feature, especially when “dressed up” with earrings. After your eyes, nose, and mouth, your earlobes are one of your most noticeable features. The ears can help create a more youthful appearance and enhance your femininity.

Dr. Zinsser often performs feminizing ear surgery in conjunction with other facial gender-affirmation procedures. He may make larger ears look less prominent and sculpt the cartilage to help modify the ears’ overall contours and appearance. He can also trim and reshape your earlobes.
