Side effects, complications, and recovery
Certain risks, such as bleeding and infection, are inherent to any surgical procedure. However, procedure-specific risks and potential for complications will vary, depending on the techniques used. Dr. Kwan will discuss this in detail during your initial consultation and treatment planning. For many facial feminization patients, the greatest concern is the possibility of being dissatisfied with results or feeling as if they are seeing a stranger in the mirror. Dr. Kwan uses Vectra 3D imaging, which allows patients to preview expected results before committing to surgery.
