At the time when Caitlyn Jenner’s new look appeared on the cover of Vanity Fair, it made the general public aware of an up-and-coming field of cosmetic surgery.

Everything they know about facial plastic surgery is doing injectables or face lifts.”

Rest assured that you already have all of the information you need from your surgeon and you will be well on your way to feeling calm.
