Facial Feminization Surgery (FFS) is performed on men who would like to alter their appearances in a bid to look more feminine. This is an extremely sensitive topic for most people who are undergoing one or more of the related procedures, which is why it is crucial for them to ensure that they only approach a proper FFS surgeon. This will ensure that each and every procedure is performed safely as well as to the highest possible surgical safety standards.
Extensive Levels of Experience and Up to Date Qualifications
Before agreeing to have any form of facial feminization surgery, it is crucial for candidates to make enquiries regarding whether the surgeon they choose is suitably qualified and registered with the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS). If there is no record of registration or if a surgeon is not willing to provide evidence of being registered, it is recommended that another surgeon be used instead. It is also necessary to approach a surgeon who has experience in performing the required feminization procedures, as this will help ensure that all of the end results are not only satisfactory; it will help reduce the possibility of any complications occurring afterwards as well.
High Levels of Discretion and Professionalism at all Times
The subject of facial feminization surgery is normally one which is of a highly delicate nature for most patients who have intentions of having it carried out in any way. As a result, it is essential that the highest possible level of discretion and patient confidentiality is exercised between the FFS surgeon and his or her employees at all times. This will enable the patients to place complete confidence in their plastic surgeons, which will in turn play a large part in ensuring that each and every aspect of their FFS surgeries are a complete success.
Ensure that a Wide Range of Procedures can be performed
Some FFS surgeons are only willing to offer patients limited options when it comes to performing feminization surgery. However, patients need to be aware that there are numerous options available. These can include, but may not be limited to brow lifts, osteoplastic surgery, face lifts, neck lifts, chin reshaping, jaw contouring, upper lip enhancements, dermal fillers, nasal tip enhancements, scalp advancement, tracheal shaving, cheek augmentation, temporal lifts, frontal bossing reduction osteotomy and a range of dermal fillers. To complete the facial feminization process, it is essential to use a surgeon who is able to perform the widest possible ranges of these procedures.
Patients should also remember that they should never base their choice of surgeon on price alone, as the cheapest surgeon will usually not provide the best possible results. It is also not recommended that FFS surgeries be carried out overseas, as surgeons in other countries may not be suitably qualified or experienced enough to provide the best results. Referrals should also be obtained from other patients before agreeing to use any particular plastic surgeon.
