One Amazing Transgender Transition Discusses her Transformation

FFS Transgender

Transgender Stef Sanjati, age 20, has always struggled to look at herself in the mirror – even to the point where she would spend 5 hours a day applying makeup in an effort to appear more feminine. However, she was recently able to have Facial Feminization Surgery (FFS) performed and is planning to undergo Sexual Realignment Surgery (SRS) at some point as well.

Costly but Well Worthwhile

Before having the $45,000 FFS surgery, Ms. Sanjati said that it wasn’t a matter of her disliking herself; she felt that the person staring back at her from the mirror simply didn’t reflect who she truly was. “For myself, waking up and looking in the mirror is like pressing reset on your favorite gam every day. Losing all progress, going backwards, never reaching your potential. It’s incredibly frustrating, not seeing what you see in your head in the mirror. I don’t think I have uploaded an untouched photograph since before I started my transition – I nip and tuck at my face, reducing my jaw here, enlarging my cheek there… all with the goal of looking more like what we perceive as feminine,” she said.

Questions to Ask During Your FFS Consultation

FFS Consultation

If you’re thinking about facial feminization surgery, it’s important to consult with surgeons to discuss things like goals, recommendations, and even price estimates. To get the most out of your FFS consultation, it’s important to ask the right questions. The guidelines below will help you get the information you need so you can make the best choice for your unique needs.

#1 – What Are Your Board Certifications?

If there’s one question you should always ask any surgeon, it’s about his or her board certifications. It’s vital to choose a surgeon who has the right education. In fact, patients often travel to other countries since international doctors often offer significantly lower prices, but it’s important to note that these surgeons are not always board certified, which means they lack the education required to keep you healthy and safe.

Have Masculine Features? FFS can Help

FFS

The emergence and acceptance of the transgender community has increased public awareness of facial feminization surgery (FFS). While FFS is of tremendous benefit to transgender patients, it isn’t limited to one demographic.

FFS can reach out and help a lot of people.

To understand how, we’ll discuss the goal of FFS.

FFS is meant to provide patients with all of the major and subtle facial features that support true gender. It’s convenient to think of it as “gender confirmation surgery” because it helps patients appropriately identify as male or female. It encompasses a broad range of cosmetic and plastic surgeries.

What Does Transgender Mean?

Transgender

The gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender (GLBT) community has reached a never before seen level of public exposure. Homosexual relationships have been legitimized by the legalization of homosexual marriage. Homosexuality is becoming widely accepted and homosexuals are reporting that they feel far less ridiculed. This is a huge step in the right direction; however, there is still work to be done. Despite the transgender community recently being brought into the limelight, there are still many people who ask the question “What does transgender mean?”.

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. Jenner’s new look consisted of a softer brow line, a reshaped nose and chin and gorgeous cheekbones, all of which fall under the category of facial feminization surgery (FFS).

Not Just for the Transgender Community

Although FFS was pioneered in the early 2000s to aid the gender transition process, it isn’t only the transgender community that is taking note of Jenner’s new look. Dr. Vartan Mardirossian, a Palm Beach plastic surgeon who specializes in this field noted, “Women saw that there were things that could be done that they didn’t know before. Take someone with a forehead that they consider too high or too prominent, for example. They don’t know there’s a surgical solution to it. Everything they know about facial plastic surgery is doing injectables or face lifts.”

How Dr. Mardirossian Helped One Transgender FIU Student Make the Transition 

FFS Patient

At some point in life, a majority of us struggle with self-acceptance. Naturally, for some, it is more than others. Those who probably have to deal with this the most are transgender people. Individuals who feel like they are women trapped in the body of a man or vice versa. Such is the case of Marlyn, a 23-year-old student at FIU.

Challenges

Marlyn especially struggled with her appearance. She said that her struggle with her appearance was not due to vanity but because it was in contradiction, to whom she was inside. She would continually harm herself and was going through some mental and emotional torment. Repeatedly, she went to bed hoping to either wake up a girl or lose her life before the sun came up. People always told her to accept herself as she is but transgender is who she was.
