Face The Face

So a year ago today, I went under the knife for the first of two rounds of what’s referred to as facial feminization surgery, with the amazing Dr. Marcelo Di Maggio in Buenos Aires.

I may not be the prettiest woman, but it’s still a remarkable transformation* given what he had to work with.

Sometimes people have post-surgery moments of “what have I done” — altering one’s face is rather primal — but I’ve never regretted it for a second.

This is the face that feels like me, it’s my “before” face that looks odd and alien to me when I look at old photos.
