FFS Before Gender Reassignment

The Pros and Cons of Undergoing FFS Before Gender Reassignment

FFS Before Gender Reassignment

Transitioning from male to female comes with numerous medical procedures. These start with hormone treatments and gradually schedule facial feminization surgery (FFS) and gender reassignment. Many people want to know which they should schedule first, and the truth is that there’s no one right answer. Here are some things to keep in mind if you’re struggling to decide.

For most, it is a personal decision and one that each woman must make for herself. Understanding the pros and cons can help you make that choice.

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.
