  • Facial gender affirmation surgery has made remarkable advances in recent years. These delicate plastic surgery procedures align a person’s facial structure with the gender they have always identified with. The surgery is highly personalized–the surgeon needs to gain a clear understanding of the patient’s facial structure, desires, and expectations before planning the procedure.

In this podcast, she answers many of the initial questions transgender people have about this surgery, from the use of hormones, to insurance requirements, to what to expect from your first appointment.
