4 months after surgery with Dr Bart van de Ven
I had my facial feminisation with Dr Bart on September 4th 2014.After consulting with him about 6 months prior to the surgery we had decided to go for a “full” FFS, including hairline lowering, forehead recontouring + brow lift, rhinoplasty, chin and jaw recontouring and Adam’s apple shave. I have always known I am a girl inside, and living as woman has always been my greatest dream. However, having gone through male puberty, my face had masculinized severely with very pronounced and unmistakably male features. Any hope of me “passing” in public had evaporated and I knew my only option was to have facial feminisation. After many years of online research I heard of Dr Bart van de Ven and I was immediately impressed by the before & after pictures of his patients. More importantly I saw patients who had similar concerns like me before their surgeries (especially chin and nose), which Dr Bart seemed to be especially good at. That fact, plus his reasonable prices when compared to some of his overseas colleagues made me choose him as the surgeon to whom I could entrust my face. The consultation we had was very pleasant and informative and reassured me that I had made the right choice.
As for the results, I am speechless. I think my pictures speak for themselves. Dr Bart managed to turn my fairly masculine face into that of a pretty girl. It is impossible to describe in words how much better I feel when I look at myself in the mirror and I see what I have always know should be there! All I can say is a huge thank you to Dr Bart and the whole team! If anyone is thinking of having FFS, I would strongly encourage them to consider Dr Bart, as I think he is one of the best surgeons in the field!
