Welcome to Dr. Nazmi Baycin’s surgical face transformation and reshaping page
As a Turkish plastic surgeon in Dubai, UAE, here I will share my professional knowledge and personal experience about changing the face image and appearance, and also male to female face transformation (facial feminization surgery), female to male transformation (facial masculinization surgery). You will find out the surgical techniques, what and how I can do, recovery period and tips to avoid unwanted results, risks of procedures, face change surgery before and after pictures and more…
Why do you need face change?
Face change surgery is most rare as well as most extreme procedure in plastic surgery. Minority of plastic surgeons can seize a chance to have an experience on this procedure in their professional life depending on the patient’s request. Luckily, I have had such an extreme experience many times.
The urges that the person to wish his or her face to transform are variable:
Anybody may wish to look different
Males may wish to look like a female (Facial feminization surgery)
Females may wish to look like a male (Facial masculinization surgery)
What is face transformation?
Movie industry has leaded people to think that a face can be converted to a disparate face. As a result, some people who are not pleased of their face shape may wish to resemble celebrities.
A man visited me many years ago and asked his face to transform to Johnny Depp’s face. Of course I rejected him, because of his unrealistic expectation. Such cases can only be seen on science fiction movies.
I am just a surgeon, not a magician. However I fulfilled some patients’ request who wanted face transformation without targeting a particular face shape. Outcoming face shape will be derivations of your original face shape. Yet, the more procedure you have, the more your face differs.
On the other hand, it depends on how much you authorize me on your face change. If you give me full authorization without limitation, I can design an utterly different face.
There are numerous applications and software which transform the face reshaping three-dimensionally to see the difference before the surgery. However face change on the computer and to do it surgically are totally different jobs.
Of course, digital media shows your face change and gives an idea of how your face will look; however, no surgeon promises you to achieve the same result.
Psychologic Aspect of Face Change Surgery
Before the face reshaping, you must think twice what your expectation is and why you need such an extreme surgery which may be irreversible. Your psychological consistency is crucial. Your satisfaction rate depends on the utterly your expectation.
According to your expectation, I divide the candidates into two groups:
Those who target a particular face shape: As I told before, I am not a magician who can provide you same to same what you imagine in your mind. If your expectation is precise and fixed, you will most probably be disappointed. For this reason, I do not attempt to perform your surgery.
Those who do not target a particular face shape: If your main goal is to change your face anyhow, if you are ready for flexible outcomes rather than to have a precise appearance, you will be satisfied. Yet, I will design your face according to your wishes.
The units and factors that define the face shape and appearance are basically:
Facial bone formation
Facial muscle formation
Fat tissue thickness and distribution
Unlimited formation variations of those units make difference the face shapes individually among the people. The parameters that can be transformed surgically therefore face reshaping are:
Bone Shape Variations
The bones of the face which influence face shape consist of lower jaw (mandible), upper jaw (maxilla), cheek bones (zygoma), nose bone (nasal bone), and forehead bone (frontalis).
Lower jaw (Mandible)
Width of the lower jaw arch: Reduction and widening
Sharpness of the rear angle of lower jaw: Smoothening and rounding
Distance between teeth and lower margine of jaw: Increasing or decreasing
Prominency of the chin (front part of lower jaw): Reduction or augmentation
The position of lower jaw relative to upper jaw: Advancing forward or pushing backward
You may get detailed information regarding this procedure as visiting chin surgery page.
Upper jaw (Maxilla)
Prominency of upper jaw: Advancing forward or pushing backward
Distance between upper teeth and nose: Increasing or decreasing
Cheek bone (Zygoma)
Bone prominency: Reduction or augmentation
Bone arch width: Widening or narrowing
Nose bone (Nasal bone)
Size: Reduction or augmentation
Width: Widening or narrowing
Tip width: Narrowing or widening
Tip angulation: Rotating upward or downward
You may get detailed information regarding this procedure as visiting rhinoplasty page.
Forehead bone prominency: Augmentation is feasible only. The forehead bone is one of the bones that protects the brain. Reduction of the forehead bone makes the bone thinner and leads it more fragile against trauma.
Facial Muscle Formation
Facial muscles influence face appearance visually and also have an importance functionally. Muscles are sole dynamic component of the face. Muscles ensure all mimic movement including opening and closing eye and mouth, smiling, speaking and many more… Since changing the muscle formation also affects their movement functions, only minor changes are feasible in order to preserve their functions.
Fat Tissue Thickness and Distribution
The volume of the fat tissue influences facial appearance. Large volume of fat leads person to look chubby, in contrary, little volume of fat leads person to look skinny. Both volume reduction for chubby people and volume enhancement for skinny people are feasible. While liposuction and / or buccal fat removal ensures fat reduction, fat transfer ensures fat volume enhancement.
Lip augmentation: Fat injection or filler injection makes your lips fuller.
Skin tightness: Skin tightening on your cheeks and eyelids is feasible which leads you look younger
Eye shape: Converting an Asian shaped eye to European shaped eye, in contrary converting an European shaped eye to Asian shaped eye is feasible. Also elevating the outer corner of the eye is feasible which leads significant difference upon the facial expression.
Lip reduction: Removing a particular width of the skin on the reddish part of the lip makes your lips look thinner.
Nevus (mole) transfer: Almost everybody has a nevus on various part of their body. It is feasible to transfer any nevus from any part of the body onto the face.
Hair density: Hair implantation makes your hair to look more dense. Not only for head hair, but also it is feasible to do for eyebrow, beard and mustache. In contrary, laser hair removal provides an option to reduce your hair.
Eyebrow width: Widening or narrowing
