ABOUT DR. JEDRZEJEWSKI

Dr. Jedrzejewski’s lifelong commitment to social justice and dream of becoming a doctor led her to become an integrated plastic surgeon specializing in the full array of gender-affirming procedures. As the daughter of a Polish immigrant and a Mexican-American, and the first in her family to graduate from college, Dr. Jedrzejewski carries a deep compassion for patients who may have experienced trauma or have had challenges accessing the healthcare they need. Her family’s international background inspired her decision to pursue a master’s degree in public health focused on global health as well as her desire to understand more deeply the challenges marginalized communities experience accessing healthcare.

Dr. Jedrzejewski was also deeply inspired by the portrait photography she studied as an undergraduate to think about how subjects saw themselves and how artists chose to portray them. These questions have shaped how Dr. Jedrzejewski approaches patient care – closely collaborating with each of her patients to understand how they view themselves and how they wish to be seen in the world.

WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF FACIAL MASCULINIZATION SURGERY?

  • Improved congruence between your inner and outer self
  • Enhanced self-confidence and quality of life
  • More masculine facial structures
  • Improved definition in the forehead, nose, cheeks, chin, jaw and neck
  • Natural-looking results.

WHO IS A GOOD CANDIDATE?

People who wish to optimize their image and affirm their gender identity will be excellent candidates for facial surgery, provided they are physically and mentally healthy.

Surgery should only be performed for your own personal reasons, and not to please others or conform with societal standards. A realistic and individualized approach based on your private consultation with our team will serve you best in moving forward.

WHAT DOES RECOVERY ENTAIL?

Following surgery, you will be bandaged and have gauze dressings on your incisions. You may be asked to wear a compression support garment that helps to minimize postoperative swelling and keep your new facial contours intact. Small tubes may be in place to help drain off any excess fluids or blood as you heal.

The doctor will provide you with a complete aftercare plan that includes instructions for taking pain medications and antibiotics, bathing and washing the wounds, sleeping, exercising, returning to work, and scheduling follow up appointments. Healing is different for everyone and may take between 2 and 6 weeks, depending on the precise nature of the treatments you had performed, and on your personal recuperation abilities.

  • Are seeking more masculine facial features
  • Are old enough to provide informed consent
  • Have thoroughly researched the procedure and have attended a consultation
  • Have suffered with persistent gender dysphoria
  • Have a positive outlook and realistic goals
