What can you expect from your FFS consultation, and how should you prepare?
Most of you already have a clear image of what procedures you are interested in. If you don’t have a clear idea yet, try to envision what you might want to tell the doctor. What do you like about your face, and what not? How do you feel about it, and why? If you know what your priorities are, this will be helpful for you and Dr. Bart to determine what the focus is going to be.
After welcoming you into his office, Dr Bart’s first question will be “What can I do for you?”. He will take his time to talk to you about why you have come to us. He will also ask you what are your own ideas regarding your face and what FFS procedures you think you need.
After this initial orientation, Dr. Bart van de Ven will come and sit next to you. He will share his ideas with you on what could be done to change what you don’t like about your face, and which procedures he thinks are necessary to produce a feminine and beautiful result.
While you hold a mirror, he will show you what would happen during surgery exactly, where incisions will be made etc.
At any given time you are free to ask Dr. Bart any questions you might have. Your feedback is absolutely welcome and even necessary to clear up any misunderstandings and avoid future disappointments!
So don’t be afraid to tell the doctor when you don’t agree, or when you have something else in mind. Be vocal about your priorities and about how you see things. Your input will always be considered, and together you will come to a conclusion that is in your best interest.
After discussing the procedures, Dr. Bart van de Ven will calculate the price of your FFS. If this price is above your budget, you can ask for a second proposal containing only the procedures you and he deem most necessary. This proposal will then be printed out for you to take home.
After having discussed the procedures and price, Dr. Bart will take clinical pictures of your face so he can make a simulation of your possible Facial Feminization Surgery result. Please take these instructions into account, so we can make proper high-quality pictures on your consultation day:
After your consultation, you will immediately be sent an e-mail containing your price quote and procedure plan. Within 48 hours you will also receive your FFS simulation.
Not to worry! In case you’ve forgotten to mention or ask something, you may always contact our patient coordinator Elli at firstname.lastname@example.org. She will help you as soon as possible.
