Facial feminization surgery (FFS) describes a set of procedures used to feminize the face. Dr. Mittermiller is one of only a few surgeons in the states with specialty training in craniofacial and facial feminization surgery.
The first step is to have a consultation with a surgeon who specializes in gender-affirming facial surgery. You will discuss the facial features of concern and the surgeon may point out additional areas that can be addressed.
ACT scan may be performed to evaluate your facial structure. This allows the patient and surgeon to better visualize the underlying bone structure of the face to best tailor a surgical treatment.
If the surgery is for gender dysphoria, letters from one or more health providers may be necessary to state the need for facial surgery to help relieve symptoms of gender dysphoria.
During the consultation, we will ask you about your medical history, including any medical problems that may exist, whether you have previously had surgery, what medications you take, which allergies you have, and whether you have any habits such as smoking or drinking.
Unless your insurance plan specifically has transgender exclusions, our office is quite adept at working with most insurance plans. After your initial visit with Dr. Satterwhite or Dr. Safir and the surgical team at Align, you will have a consultation with our financial advisor, who will provide in-depth information on the insurance process. Our goal is to make the process as easy as possible for you.
