5 Facial Features that Can Make You Look Very Masculine

Posted on March 23, 2018 by Ellen Defrancq

Sometimes, sculpting a feminine face is not about adding features – it’s about reducing some of the masculine features that already exist. There are five facial features that can make you look very masculine and addressing these with surgery and other procedures can boost your femininity and help you achieve your true identity.

5 Facial Features - FFSNose

Believe it or not, the nose is one of the first and foremost indicators of gender. The male nose is typically more prominent and slightly larger than the female nose. Men usually have broader noses, and the bridge can be a bit crooked or even have a slight indentation. Women, on the other hand, have a narrower nose than their male counterparts. What’s more, the profile is more concave, which means women often have slightly upturned noses. Nose feminization can provide a more feminine nose.


They say the eyes are the windows to the soul, so the eyebrows are much like the curtains because they frame and enhance your eyes. Female eyes are slightly larger and appear to be more “open” than men’s eyes. Women also have higher brows with a more noticeable arch. For some transgender patients, a simple waxing can help to provide a more feminine brow. For others, a brow bone reduction may provide better results.


Lips are another facial feature that can create a very masculine appearance. By nature, men have thinner, longer lips, while women have lush, plumper lips. Aside from this, male lips are further from the nose than female lips, which are closer due in part to their fullness. The best way to create more feminine lips is with lip augmentation procedures. These vary, so there are different options to suit different needs.


The male chin is almost always more prominent and larger than the female chin, which is smaller and far less defined. Along the same lines, men tend to have chins that appear squarer in shape, while women’s chins are more rounded. The jawline along each side of the chin is another characteristic that can create a masculine appearance. In men, the jaw is stronger and wider; in women, it is not as defined. Several procedures can help reduce the size of the male chin and jaw including chin contouring. In some cases, surgeons can reduce the size of the male chin and jaw to provide a more feminine appearance.

Adam’s Apple (Trachea)

While women may have more masculine than feminine features, the Adam’s apple is always a giveaway. This feature only occurs in boys during puberty when cartilage begins to grow around the larynx, causing their voices to crack and deepen, and causing the protruding bump in the neck known as the Adam’s apple. A procedure called a tracheal shave can reduce the size of the Adam’s apple and provide a more feminine appearance.

These five facial features can create a more masculine look, especially among transgender patients. Fortunately, thanks to the help of advanced technologies, world-renowned surgeons can help sculpt and create a feminine face that accurately reflects your inner self.
