Thanks to Caitlyn Jenner being brave enough to let the world know who she really is, it is expected that more and more transgender individuals will do the same. However, many of them are not able to afford a consultation with an FFS surgeon when they make the decision to have facial feminization surgery done. As a result, the surgeons at the Jacobson and Mardirossian Plastic Surgery Center for Excellence are offering a free consultation to these patients.
What to Expect
When scheduling a free consultation with an FFS surgeon at our practice, patients will not only be presented with the opportunity to voice any fears or concerns they may have; they will be able to find out about the extensive range of FFS procedures that can be performed as well. In cases where patients already know which procedure(s) they want to have performed, the surgeon will also be able to provide input regarding whether the chosen procedure(s) will be beneficial to the patient or not.
About the Surgeon
Dr. Vartan Mardirossian is one of very few surgeons in the U.S. who specializes in performing the various procedures that are associated with facial feminization surgery. After completing his initial residency, he pursued a fellowship in Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery under the mentorship of Dr. Jeffrey Spiegel, who is a widely acclaimed facial plastic surgeon. Dr. Mardirossian not only focuses on providing each FFS patient with a personalized plan of action with regards to their chosen surgical procedures; he takes the time to follow up with his patients to find out how they are coping afterwards.
Patients who schedule an appointment with an FFS surgeon at our practice will be pleased to know that an extensive range of related procedures can be performed. These include rhinoplasty, brow lift procedures, chin shaving, jaw shaving, chin implant surgery, lip lifts, forehead contouring, and mandible contouring and scalp advancement procedures. Although the surgeon will provide recommendations, it is ultimately up to the patient to decide how many of these procedures they would like to have performed.
Many patients are simply not able to afford to cover the full cost of their chosen FFS procedures upfront – and in most cases, these costs will also not be covered by health care plans because they are deemed to be ‘elective.’ As a result, patients who decide to have their procedures performed at our practice have the option of applying for upfront finance through Prosper Healthcare Lending. Applying for finance in this manner is fast and simple, and no penalties are incurred if patients decide to repay their loan amount earlier than anticipated.
Patients who would like to have any form of facial feminization surgery performed but who have not been sure which surgeon to use should not hesitate to contact us as soon as possible to schedule their free consultation with Dr. Mardirossian. This can be done by calling our practice on 561-624-0900 or by completing the handy contact form on our site.
