Project Description

This piece is intended to teach transgender patients about Facial Feminization Surgery. These surgical options are often difficult for the patient to conceptualize and difficult for the surgeon to explain. They are also rarely covered by insurance, and can be costly. This illustration is intended to inform patients so that they can make more informed decisions about what may provide the most satisfying and affirming results, and take a more active role in their own care.
