Jenner completed her transition with a 10-hour facial feminization surgery that, according to Vanity Fair, took place on March 15.
Now, the 65-year-old reality star’s plastic surgeons are opening up about the life-changing procedure.
Dr. Harrison Lee — the plastic surgeon in charge of Jenner’s facial surgery — recently talked to E! News about the intense process, which included a brow lift and reshaping the jaw bone.
“Men tend to have a prominent brow bone, so you do a little bit of a brow lift, just to soften the image,” Lee explained. “We go inside the mouth and actually take off the outer portion of the [jaw] bone and soften it.”
According to Dr. Harrison Lee, Jenner’s fitness helped the recovery process a lot.
“She healed remarkably fast,” Lee shared. “Maybe because she’s an Olympic athlete… I mean, at 65, she is in remarkable health.”
Jenner signed a copy of the Vanity Fair issue whose cover featured her, and she gave the autographed magazine to Dr. Harrison Lee, who operated on her.
“Great job,” Jenner wrote on the cover. “Thank you so much.”
Jenner’s E! series, I Am Cait, premieres July 26. The photo of Jenner and Lee can be seen below.
