Facebook Question: FFS

In an effort to spur my creativity and to have more to discuss, I asked my Facebook friends to pose questions to me that i would answer here in my Blog.

I received



But that one reply was a good one.  Tammyrae asked:

"After being fulltime for over a year and as funds are saved, the thought of FFS and bottom surgery run through the head, which is more important and why?"

I can answer this for myself alone.  I know that some transwomen view their penises as an invading monster or as something that needs to go NOW.  Some others, not so much.

In my case, I think FFS (Facial Feminization Surgery) is more important and should come first.


Well have you seen me?

In my case, having a more feminine face would add so much to my self confidence.  I've been told that confidence is the key to passing. 

Would I ever completely pass as a woman?  With my body type, doubtful.  But I want to be as feminine as I can be.  My face, people see.  My genitals, I can hide.  And for that matter, My breasts, I can fake.

How much does FFS matter to me?  I've done my research on who is considered the best in the field.  Funny how they're also the most expensive, isn't it?  But this is my FACE I'd be messing with.  I don't want a hack who doesn't know what they're doing.  So I save.  And Save.  At this rate I'll have the money by 2157.

As to bottom surgery- would that be important?  Well if I'm getting one, the other would follow.  In good time.  That said, my current insurance covers that.

In any case, all of these things are down the line a bit.  For now, I am still closeted and wishing.

Thanks for the Question, Tammyrae!  (I'm still taking questions, btw.)

Oh, one more thing.  My friend Ms. Lindsay performed FFS on a few pics of mine.  Here are 2 of them.

I may be stupid for thinking this, but I think the pics look quite good.  And If FFS is this effective... well I want it.  :)


  1. Yes but you answered from a singular point of view - phooey on the retort. What is most important to you is great for you but I see no argument established here. Is physical passibility more important or physical embodiment more important? I truly believe its more individualized than a this or that approach. What is the person's mindset with regard to their anatomy? Some try to self-correct without proper medical assistance, some take themselves out (commit suicide) over anatomy. IS passing via FFS really so important? Yes it makes presentation easier but does it do more for a person then correcting the only “legalizing element?” This question is huge and individual and whereas I respect your needs and understand its your blog, what good is a singular perspective, unless you’re writing a journal/autobiography?

  2. Well well . . .
    Personally I would agree with you Sophie. Of course I added the word "personally" for a reason though, because asd Tammy pointed out, it is a HIGHLY subjective question and answer.
    In my case, I would go for option three first and have my head surgically removed from my backside . . . .

  3. By the way, I quite like that first pic!

  4. I loved as much as you'll receive carried out right here. The sketch is tasteful, your authored material stylish. nonetheless, you command get got an nervousness over that you wish be delivering the following. unwell unquestionably come further formerly again since exactly the same nearly a lot often inside case you shield this increase.

  5. I like the pictures. Kind of a Bonnie Tyler look if you ask me! As for as priorities on surgeries go: I think each of us looks at it differently and there really is not way to argue one over the other. It's a personnel choice. When I first accepted being a woman I thought that I would only go for bottom and that I could make the rest work. Three years later, I have changed my opinions on that. FFS and bottom are what I want. I'm hoping boobs will grow with HRT even if minimal. Depending on natural growth, I may or may not opt for augmentation.
