Feminization of the transgender patient allows Dr. Murphy to use the full scope of his artistic abilities and expertise. One of the keys to successful feminization of transgender patients is a thorough understanding of the differences between the male and female physique, literally from head to toe. Feminization can include both facial feminization as well as body contouring and breast augmentation. While facial feminization is important, other areas of the body can be made more feminine as well.
A thorough assessment of the body contours of transgender patients can be just as important as facial feminization. Fat deposits are different in men and women. Customization of body contouring procedures for transgender patients, can include not only removal of fat from key areas but transferring this fat to other areas such as the buttocks. Dr. Murphy’s training and experience over the full field of plastic surgery allows him to provide his patients with the full spectrum of facial, breast and body contouring procedures.

Buccal fat pad removal
Removal of the fat pad of the mid-cheek is occasionally added to feminization procedures to help achieve facial balance and reduce mid-face fullness commonly seen in full faced individuals. This procedure can give a more feminine contoured appearance while emphasizing the cheekbone area. Buccal fat pad removal is performed through a small incision inside the mouth with an easy recovery.
Buttock and Trunk Re-Contouring with Liposuction and Fat Grafting
The “female hourglass figure” is inherently different from the male torso. Removal of fat from the midriff/waist area can help to feminize the male torso, but “sealing the deal” with skillful re-introduction of the harvested fat into the buttock and perhaps lateral thigh area can help Dr. Murphy achieve the difference between a good and great result. Careful assessment of each patient’s existing fat deposits along with an understanding of the difference between the typical female and male fat distribution helps Dr. Murphy achieve you best result.
