Summary/Review: "Are You Transitioning and Considering Facial Feminization Surgery? Do you have a prominent chin-a heavy brow-or a strong lower jaw that you feel detracts from your femininity? Would you like your appearance to more closely match the way you feel inside? If so, perhaps you're considering plastic surgery. For many transgendered women, having their facial features refined has been an important step in their transition. Some individuals consider it the most essential part of their transformation. Plastic surgeon Douglas K. Ousterhout, M.D., pioneered the field of plastic surgery known as facial feminization surgery (FFS). For decades he has been the preeminent plastic surgeon in feminizing the facial-cranial structure of transgendered women. Dr. Jordan Deschamps-Braly, M.D., an accomplished plastic surgeon, was asked by Dr. Ousterhout to assume and continue his practice. In Facial Feminization Surgery, Dr. Deschamps-Braly and Dr. Ousterhout discusses the many types of FFS procedures they have performed over the past thirty-five years. They explain in detail what the following procedures accomplish and how they are performed: Scalp advancement, Forehead feminization, Temple augmentation, Cheek contouring, Nose reshaping, Lip reshaping, Chin feminization, Lower jaw tapering, Thyroid cartilage reduction, Lower jaw repositioning, Upper jaw repositioning, Facelifts and other facial procedures, Hair transplants In Facial Feminization Surgery, the authors also provide information on the recovery process for each procedure as well as side effects and, though unlikely, potential complications. This book covers procedures to rejuvenate the face, such as facelifts and eyelid lifts, and contains more than two hundred before-and-after photos of FFS patients"--
