Facial Feminisation Project

Study Lead - Alasdair Regan

Consultant Advisors - Rory Morrison, Jim McCaul

This project was also proposed by a second degree student, and aims to map the provision and uptake of facial feminisation surgery across the UK.

This study has so far involved mapping the provision of FFS by the NHS across the UK, and carrying out a five year retrospective audit of FFS in Scotland (where most is funded by the NHS). The results of this have been written into a manuscript which is now undergoing internal review before submission. The next steps for this project are to begin collection of QOL data using a partially validated French tool which has been translated into English for our use. This is likely to begin in Scotland when elective clinics for patients seeking FFS resume.
