How FFS Changed Woman’s Life [Dr. Spiegel ABC News Story]
For those who take advantage of facial feminization surgery (FFS) go through life changing procedures. Recently Dr. Spiegel was featured on an ABC News story where they discussed one woman’s transition to be an amazing life changing experience. Dr. Spiegel also discusses why people view gender the way that they do and what are some of the features that others look at first when identifying male or female.
“Humans worldwide have a “gut” reaction to whether a person is a man or a woman, and it is not based on the “obvious,” according to Dr. Jeffrey Spiegel, chief of the Division of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at Boston University Medical Center.”
“It’s hard to look female,” said Spiegel, who calls himself “the best” in facial feminization surgery.
When research subjects are shown photos, even for just a fraction of a second, they almost always get the gender right. “When they make a mistake, it’s always thinking that a woman is a man and never that a man is a woman,” he said.
