Addressing the aesthetic needs of transgender patients
There are over a million transgender people, at different stages of the transition process, living in the United Kingdom. However, their facial aesthetics needs are not fully established in the medical literature. Historically, the clinical management of transgender patients has been limited to endocrinologists, surgeons and mental health specialists. There are no guidelines for the timing of facial feminisation/masculinisation, although individuals are recommended to go on hormonal therapy and live in a gender-congruent role for at least 12 months prior to surgical intervention. As facial changes are most imperative on their list of aesthetic needs, this session will focus on how non-surgical treatments could have a tremendous impact on transgender individuals who seek to realise their gender identity.
