New book: ‘Facial Feminization for the Transgendered Woman’ by Douglas Ousterhout
I just got my preview copy of Facial Feminization Surgery: A Guide for the Transgendered Woman by FFS pioneer Douglas Outserhout. It’s an excellent 185-page overview of available procedures, with many illustrations and images. I highly recommend it for anyone considering these procedures, as it is the definitive consumer guide. It includes an introduction by Donna Rose, who, like me, had life-changing results from these procedures. Both of us are among the many patients who consented to having our results included in the book.
It is scheduled to be available in December 2009 and is already available for pre-order.
