with Dr Noorman van der Dussen I had two sets of surgery. In 2005 I had cheek augmentation, jaw reduction and a brow reduction, then in 2010 I had an upper lip lift and a MACS lift.
I had already gone through gender reassignment and been living as a woman for five years. Before finding the Dr I had some minor feminizing procedures with another Dr and had thought I looked passable as female but after surgery with Dr Noorman van der Dussen I returned to work and a colleague said "wow ,now you look like a woman"...I only wish I had found the Dr sooner.
Not only is he one of the most qualified surgeons I have found he also understands how important the FFS is to transgendered women. That this is not just a cosmetic procedure ,it is the gate way into being fully accepted and to "pass" convincingly as women.
During the consultation he was calming,understanding,reassuring and compassionate , relieving my anxiety and distress with his relaxed manner and warm smile .
I am very happy with the results from both surgeries with the Dr . I remember the first time i looked in a mirror and thought to myself "is that really me " such a great feeling.
The post op follow up with the Dr was equally relaxed ,giving me time to talk through any concerns .
I would not hesitate to recommend Dr Franz Noorman van der Dussen and hope that this review helps you if you are considering surgery .
