Facial Feminization Surgery is a highly sensitive process, both clinically and emotionally. However, it aims to offer a more feminine face to transgender who are affected by late release of pubertal testosterone and consequently have masculine shapes. Facial bone reconstruction and soft tissue balancing along with several important steps in a FFS process require high precision surgeons. However, Facial Feminization Surgeons should also preferably have a sensitive approach to handling patients who are opting for a change that would transform their lives forever.
Choosing an FFS surgeon is a complicated process and you need to ensure several things to guarantee the best results for the patient. At Dr. Pentyala’s Facial Feminization Surgery, we guide you to make this choice look simple.
Experience level / qualifications
Before you sign up for FFS surgery, it is important to make the required enquiries about the experience and expertise of the surgeon. Firstly, he/she should be registered with the national body of plastic surgeons and with an extra specialization in FFS and cosmetic procedures. Never work with a surgeon who hasn’t been registered with the national association. After checking the qualification, it is also vital to know about his track record. The greater number of FFS procedures that the surgeon has worked on, the better he should be. At Dr. Pentyala’s Facial Feminization Surgery, each of our doctors/surgeons comes with international degrees and cosmetic specialization and an extensive yet global work experience.
Level of professionalism
As cosmetic surgeons, doctors should be highly discreet about their patient records. For the patient, this is a sensitive step and many patients demands that it is carried out in a way that few would be aware of the transformation. In most cases in India, patients look for a complete new identity after an FFS surgery. So it is vital, that no information is shared without the permission of the patient at any point in their career. Surgeons at Dr. Pentyala’s Facial Feminization Surgery are bound by a strict confidential agreement and you can expect full co-operation from them.
Knowledge and suggestions
The first step in an FFS procedure is to have a couple of sessions with the surgeon and understand his/her suggestions about the variety of minor and major enhancement surgeries that need to be done. Working with a doctor who has the right amount of knowledge doesn’t just guarantee a good result in the end but you invariably feel more comfortable choosing his/her skills and experience for your transformation.
