additional hints Your face is the primary feature by which people identify your gender. The procedures involved in FFS are many and can be performed separately, in stages or all at the same time. Having several procedures together does not prolong the recovery time excessively. Many patient choose to perform one or two procedures at a time and thus transition slowly; others have transition already and want to have the full spectrum of FFS procedures done. Our advice to the patients is to proceed with the procedure they feel most comfortable with and that will have a positive impact on their facial appearance; and we are here to help make this determination.
