Tips for Choosing Your FFS Surgeon

You have likely gone through a lot to get your first facial feminization surgery appointment, and you deserve to be celebrated. FFS can help you be your authentic self through a series of cosmetic changes to the nose, cheeks, mouth, and other parts of the face. This procedure can be an important milestone for transfeminine folks, so it’s important that it’s done 100% right. Let’s look at our tips for choosing your FFS surgeon.

Tips for Choosing Your FFS Surgeon

Dr. Jonathan Sykes and his team of friendly surgery staff understand that this is one of the biggest moments of your life. That’s why choosing your surgeon is key to having the best experience – and the most enjoyable results. Below, we’ve listed some of our favorite tips for choosing your FFS surgeon that can help you go with the very best procedure for plastic surgery in Beverly Hills.

Schedule Lots of Consultations

You may have a particular surgeon in mind, but that doesn’t mean you should settle on the very first surgery center you see. You should take the time to meet with a few surgeons to get a feel for their personal style and experience. It’s also important that your doctor has good bedside manners and makes you feel assured that you will get the results you want.

If you feel more secure, it will be easier for you to communicate your needs and for our surgeons to get them right. And it is our job to make you feel secure and valued at all times.

Look at Before & After Photos

You can hear a doctor’s testimony during the consultation, but it may be more valuable for you to look at images of before and after results. Ask your surgeon about his previous patients. If there are pictures available, it will help you to see exactly what certain proposed changes could look like depending on your own facial structure and design needs.

Learn About Aftercare

Your surgeon should explain more than just the FFS process itself; you should also receive tons of information about aftercare. It’s important that you have a clear idea of FFS surgery aftercare needs so you have a rough timeline of healing to schedule around. Some surgeons may require that you take a few weeks off of work, while others may want to monitor your healing rate for a while longer. Each treatment is unique, which is why it’s so important to find someone who understands your individual goals.

Do Your Own Research!

Having a one-on-one consultation with your surgeon is essential, but before you even do that, you should be doing research online and offline. Find out everything you can about the surgeon and their practice, including certifications and Board memberships.

Look for ratings and reviews of the surgeon and the overall practice, and try to get testimonies from friends or community members who may have visited that surgeon in the past. Video reviews are especially helpful, so take a trip to YouTube before making your final decision.
