Cosmetic Conferences

I had a pretty great opportunity to go to a lecture a renown US Doctor in the Feminization field was putting on. It was a good time to ask some questions, meet some others like me, some who had had some great work done, and also to see a power point presentation showing lots of before and after shots of trans women he had worked on.

I'm really encouraged by the experience. The price tag aside, it confirms my feelings about what is possible and how fabulous I will be. It is also interesting to learn what aspects a Doctor sees within me already that can be enhanced, and what parts need work that I hadn't anticipated.

It appears my eyes are already very Asian, but I was pleasantly surprised to meet someone like me, who feels they were meant to be Asian as well, and we had a nice conversation. The Doctor helped her achieve a more Asian heritage look and she and I are pleased. He says he has never met any others aside from she and I who feel this urge.

I also found it fascinating that many individuals, including the aforementioned Asian inspired new half, wanted to have work done so they could more easily straddle the gender line and pass as male or female when required.

I know a lot of people have strong feelings about cosmetic surgery and the pressure society places on genetic and non genetic females to look pleasing and adhere to standards of beauty. Without denial, I think there needs to be more understanding for those non genetic females who do not come out of the box looking feminine. There were girls at the lecture last night that did not require any work to look more beautiful than 99.9% of woman ALREADY.

What really matters though, and what I look forward to, is passing. I want to look like a woman so I can express my creativity and fashion. It is the imagination of the individual that decides whether others will find them attractive or not. I do not mean "eye of the beholder" I mean inception. Showbiz doesn't end on broadway, and if you want to be perceived a certain way you must take appropriate action.

  1. >>I had a pretty great opportunity to go to a lecture a renown US Doctor in the Feminization field<< Which doctor? Ousterhout or Spiegel? Or someone else? I have had quotes from both Ousterhout and Spiegel, as well as a couple of European FFS surgeons, and could comment privately on them, if you want to get in touch. Message me, if you want to know more. I know which one I would go to, and in fact will be going to in November.
