voice feminization

Voice Feminization Surgery – The Perfect Finishing Touch to an FFS Journey

voice feminization

Gender reassignment surgery, facial feminization surgery, and voice feminization surgery are often considered the trinity of transitioning. Often, facial feminization comes first, followed by voice feminization. A higher, more feminine voice is much like the frosting on the cake, and those who have FFS are considering it more often than ever before.

Feminization is More than Just Outward Appearance

When you think of the word “feminine”, you likely think of softness and kindness. During facial feminization surgery, plastic surgeons work to recontour and soften prominent facial features to create a more attractive and feminine appearance. However, the word “feminine” is about more than just appearances; it’s about all five senses. Your voice can certainly have a tremendous impact on the way you view yourself – and the way others view you, too. Voice feminization can help you feel and sound more feminine than before.

Facial Cleanse

It seems as if everyone develops his or her own unique cleansing ritual over time. You may have your own products and tools for cleansing your face, and you may swear by them, too.

How a Nose Job Can Boost Self Confidence

rhinoplasty self esteem

Rhinoplasty is the medical term used to describe the “nose job”, which is becoming far more common among men and women alike with every passing year. It’s no wonder nearly half a million people seek rhinoplasty each year; a nose job can improve self-confidence tremendously for a few very interesting reasons.

Reverses the Trauma of Bullying

While plastic surgery should never be used in place of therapy to help recover from a traumatic event, such as bullying, there’s evidence to suggest that individuals who are (or were) the targets of bullies due to the shape or size of their noses can enjoy boosted self-confidence following rhinoplasty. After all, these patients’ noses were the sources of their grief; they were the focus of the bullies. When these individuals can have their noses reshaped, and when they like what they see in the mirror, the past trauma associated with being bullied is no longer as bothersome.
