Facial Gender Confirming Surgery

@Philadelphia Trans Wellness Conference in Philadelphia, PA
4:15PM- 5:15PM

This presentation focuses on the work of Dr. Douglas Ousterhout, the originator of the group of techniques still utilized today in “Facial Feminization” surgeries. There is no one way to be or look feminine, and we will not spend a lot of time discussing the characteristics of a “female face.” This workshop will primarily cover the various techniques of facial gender surgery to meet your individual goals as Dr. Ousterhout conceived them for transgender women, and features photos of his trans women patients. This workshop is also open to gender non-binary people and trans men who are interested in the application of facial surgeries to their trans needs.
