Facial and Cosmetic Surgery

Male to Female: Facial Feminization and Cosmetic Surgery

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, lip enlargement, facial implants, and chin and jaw reduction improve feminization. Liposuction, abdominoplasty, thigh lifts, etc. improve body contour. These procedures are usually performed as an outpatient.

Female to Male: Cosmetic Surgery

Chin implants, rhinoplasty, and liposuction are among the procedures to improve appearance.

Postoperative recovery

You usually need to remain in Los Angeles for about 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.

As a best in class plastic surgeon, Dr. Gary Alter provides highly personalized and comprehensive care. His philosophy regarding the physician / patient relationship is based on trust and has earned him one of the most respected reputations in the world.
