Facial Feminization Surgery Houston
In recent years bone contouring surgery for cosmetic purposes has become increasingly popular. The surgeries first gained popularity in South Korea, where women were seeking contouring to obtain an ovoid and slender face, commonly called the “melon seed” or “heart shaped face.” These procedures are now gaining popularity in the United States, and Dr. Rodman is one of the few American surgeons trained to perform them.
Dr. Rodman’s unique training in craniomaxillofacial surgery, including extensive experience in bone movements, combined with aesthetic facial plastic surgery training, makes her one of the leading physicians in cosmetic bone contouring. Her office at Houston Plastic and Craniofacial Surgery is set up to take patients through the process from start to finish; with a CT scanner, state of the art operating rooms, as well as the restorative suites where patients can recover from surgery
Dr. Rodman is able to perform a range of procedures including forehead reduction, V-line surgery (mandibular contouring), and genioplasty (chin surgery). The goal of forehead reduction is to reduce a prominent brow or forehead bossing. V line surgery is performed to contour the mandible and narrow a wide jaw by reducing the angles. Genioplasty, or chin surgery, can alter the shape and position of the chin. Genioplasty may be performed with V-line surgery or by itself. Other facial feminization procedures performed by Dr Rodman include Adam’s apple reduction, hairline advancement and lip lift.
