Management of the midface has a central role to achieve harmony in the transgender patient requesting facial feminization surgery. The relative projection of separate areas of the craniofacial skeleton largely determines the appearance of the facial framework. In this article the authors describe the management of the midface; bony remodeling and soft tissue aspects, in the transgender patient.
