My Facial Feminizaion Surgery - Three Months Later

So, the other day, someone commented on my Instagram photo and said "Your FFS was totally worth it!" Though I didn't respond, my first thought was bitch, you don't know what I went through. I'm the one who spent months putting together paperwork and building a legal case against my insurance company. I'm the one who looked like a bruised, swollen freak for a month. I'm the one who can't whistle as well as once I could! How do you know whether all that was worth it?

Was it all worth it? That's the question. Now that I'm out of the woods on paperwork, and mostly out of the woods on healing, I think I can say it was worth it. When I look at some of my new pics, I have trouble even believing that they're me. It makes me super happy. I think I find myself passing more easily in public and that makes me super happy too. 

Sure, I won't be entering any big whistling competitions any time soon. And while it makes me sad to lose that coveted crimson sash to Bertha "Whistlee" Butler, I am going to have sit out Salzburg this year. But I'm comin' for you next year, Bertha! Still, I'm happy. So I guess maybe it was worth it. 

If you came for thoughtful content and not just a bunch of photos, I'm sorry. I can't help you. This is just gonna be a bunch of photos. I'll be more thoughtful soon.

In the meantime, here are some more pictures that I can't believe are of me!



  1. And... spent at least 20 minutes trying to figure out if it was me who said something insensitive. I... don't it was.

  2. I think you look fabulous, Faith, but so sad to hear of your struggle with the almighty insurance gods:( No one should have to be put through such torture for any surgical procedure. Be very proud of your accomplishments!
