Can Facial Feminization Surgery Be Done At The Same Time As Shoulder Narrowing and Rib Removal Surgery?
Q: Dr. Eppley, I am currently scheduled to have a consultation regarding shoulder narrowing and rib removal surgery. I wanted to ask if it was realistic to talk about having facial feminization surgeries/procedures done during the same operation, unless the shoulder narrowing and rib removal surgeries are too demanding. I understand that computer facial imaging is required for FFS. So if it is possible to have FFS done during the other procedures, would I need to reschedule or schedule another appointment for more time? Currently my appointment is set to be a 30 minute consultation. I look forward to hearing back from you!
A: We can talk about everything (face and body) during our consultation. In the properly selected patient facial feminization surgery and body contouring procedures can be done at the same time. I will define what properly selected means during the consultation.
