Facial feminization surgery is an important step, and because it can radically change your appearance, it is important to find an experienced transgender surgeon who understands the various procedures needed to create the look you want. Because of this, there are five things you should look for when it comes to choosing your surgeon.
#1 – Experience with FFS
There’s a tremendous difference between traditional plastic and reconstructive surgeries and facial feminization, and it is very important to keep this in mind. When choosing your surgeon, choose someone who is especially skilled in his or her craft. Ideally, the surgeon you choose should perform several FFS surgeries each year. To better understand the surgeon’s talent – and to discover whether you share the same aesthetic tastes – be certain to ask to see before-and-after photos of his or her previous FFS patients.
