ABOUT FACIAL FEMINIZATION SURGERY
Even though the average person might not be capable of describing the difference easily, it's usually simple to decipher a woman’s facial features from a man’s. Facial feminization surgery (FFS) works to subtly modify the structures of the face to achieve a softer, more feminine look. To produce the results you want, Jacksonville cosmetic surgeons Dr. Erik Nuveen and Dr. Courtney Caplin will perform a series of facial plastic surgeries to restructure certain areas of the face for a more feminine look. A few of the treatments that often comprise facial feminization surgery at Cosmetic Surgery Affiliates are:
- Adam’s apple reduction (tracheal shave)
- Brow lift
- Cheek augmentation
- Chin contouring
- Forehead contouring
- Hairline correction
- Jaw contouring
- Lip lift/augmentation
"I highly recommend CSA, as the team at CSA is extremely knowledgeable and helpful. My first appointment was back in February and I have been with them since! They offer so much and have really changed my life in how I see and view myself. They are very uplifting, encouraging and most importantly in todays world, KIND and RESPONSIVE. Dr. Caplin and Dr. Nuveen are both excellent to work with. Dr. Nuveen held my first consultation and the experience was warm and he was understanding and saw my vision. Dr. Caplin with her surgical team performed both of my surgeries thus far without any complications and she is very thorough in her work. Her team for recovery was kind and helpful as well. Nathania is fantastic with helping you get setup for what you need among many things-she’s a jack of all trades in my opinion. The whole staff really including Lauren, Micah and Caitlyn are just wonderful. Lauren is a fantastic nurse who is always helpful and smiley and warms the room so your not anxious and you can feel comfortable speaking with her, Micah gives the best facials I have ever had and Caitlyn is your greeting smile with you walk into the office setting the tone for the experience you will receive. If you haven’t found your “place” yet for these type of services they offer, then truly look no more and give them a call. You will not be dissatisfied by any means!"- B.S. / Google / Oct 19, 2023
"Would recommend, it can feel very daunting coming into an environment as this but from my first encounter with the staff I was able to immediately relax. The staff members especially one in particular who was the first one I spoke to Caitlyn was inviting and made the beginning stages of having my procedure easy. She was knowledgeable and empathetic without judgements. Customer service is the back bone of any business so I value the attention and effort she and everyone else put into their client’s experience."- D.I. / Google / Oct 13, 2023
