Facial feminization surgery (FFS) can serve as a critical role in gender affirmation. But there is little data that tracks FFS patients long-term after their operations.
Rod J. Rohrich, MD, Editor-in-Chief of "Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery," discusses a new prospective study that gathered feedback from the patients and outsiders, studied outcomes, and performed statistical analyses throughout the surgical process in order to truly understand how FFS affects quality of life for transfeminine people.
