Facial Feminisation Surgery - Update

Postby Jane_D_C » Thu Mar 21, 2013 6:41 pm

My FFS was 3½ months ago.

I no longer experience any pain from the op, and cannot remember when I last did.

I still have some numbness and muscle tightness around my top lip, but it is no longer bothersome. The numb region is slowly shrinking.

My scalp behind the cut is numb to feeling, pain and heat. This is not itself bothersome. I was told to expect it to take 18months to disappear. The problem with it is that I regularly suffer from headaches. Over the years I have learned to look out for early warning symptoms and take avoiding action. If the headache starts in the large numb region, I do not immediately find out, and the headache can become hard to treat.

So that’s the bad news. The benefits?

The first benefit is that when I look in a mirror I no longer see a trans woman looking back: I see a woman. That relieves a heck of a lot of distress; and feels SOOOOO good.

The second benefit took longer to appear as the swelling went down. But I am reaping it big time. I pass a LOT better. I get fewer funny looks of the kind we all know so well, and I am called ‘madam’ much more regularly. It is about two months since I was ‘read’ by a teenager. I can put a scarf over my hair so that only my face shows and I still get called ‘madam’.

I’m having some professional photos taken next week and I will post them on Tzone in due course.

Man [...] must count no one but himself; that he is alone, abandoned on earth in the midst of his infinite responsibilities, without help, with no other aim than the one he sets himself, with no other destiny than the one he forges for himself on this earth." - J.P.Sartre.

I'm oh so curious now, and already feeling jealous.

Also, IM, I never felt like you weren't passable o.o ..

And at the end of it all, I just want them to say; "Oh, that Sarah. She was a pretty awesome chick."

It sounds like you've had really good results, and like Waffles, I feel rather jealous! :D I'm scared of the idea of surgery though, I think I'll first see what happens once I've managed to shed a bit more "male pattern fat"...

Let my tell you my dears, I was scared too.

Mostly I get irritated by people who tell me that my transition takes courage. It took something else: desperation. I could stand living in male mode no more.

The exception so far has been the FFS. It took courage to go to the hospital for that.
