We welcomed Gabbie from the Philippines who came to have her FFS surgeries at ID Hospital.

Gabbie, 35, was born and raised in Philippines. She first came to realize she is a female at 3 years old and started her transition at 18 years old. She came to ID Hospital Korea to complete her transition with FFS surgeries.

 

Before Surgery

 

ID Hospital: How did you get find ID Hospital? Why did you decide to have your surgeries here?

Gabbie: I am a big fan of Korean drama series and KPOP so I have watched the “Let Me In” show and saw the wonderful transformations and the great results they got. Plus I read a lot of good reviews of ID hospital, so I decided to come and have surgery here.

ID Hospital: How many surgeries are you going to have? Why did you decide to have those surgeries?

Gabbie: Rhinoplasty, Cheekbone reduction and V line. I think this would make me a lot prettier and more feminine.

ID Hospital: Are you currently on hormones? How long have you been on hormones? How did your body change with HRT?

Gabbie: Started taking it when I was 18 and took Diane 35 initially then changed to Estradiol and Premarin.

ID Hospital: What was it like coming out to family and friends? Were they accepting?

Gabbie: I did not come out per se as my family and friends already had an inkling that I am a female so it is like an open secret.

Post-surgery 1 month

 

ID Hospital: It has been a month post-surgery, so how has the healing process been for you?

Gabbie: As explained to me before my surgery, it can take up to 6 months to have a clearer picture of the results. I still have some bruising and swelling on my jaw area but I still can see a great change in my facial features. Even though it is healing slowly, you can still see the difference.

ID Hospital: Are you satisfied with the results so far?

Gabbie: Yes, I am well satisfied. Especially with my nose and I get a lot of comments about how nice it looks 🙂

ID Hospital: Have you seen any positive changes in your life post-surgery?

Gabbie: Yes, even if still have some bruising and swelling, my face is way better now compared to before. I don’t need to edit my photos anymore because the shape of my face is now smaller.

ID Hospital: What would you say the surgeries have done for your confidence?

Gabbie: It boosted my confidence even more because of the nice comments I am getting from my family, friends and colleagues after the surgery.

ID Hospital: Would you recommend your friends or family to have surgery? If so, why?

Gabbie: Absolutely! ID hospital is one of the, if not “THE” best hospital to have cosmetic surgery. The fact that I was not forced to get other surgeries that I don’t need so far means a lot to me. It showed me that it is not just a beauty business but they also show great concern for their patients.

ID Hospital: What have you learned from your surgery experience at ID Hospital?

Gabbie: I learned that dreams really do come true and ID hospital made it happen for me. I always wanted to change my features that were too masculine. Initially, I had some reservations about facial surgery because I heard of horror stories about face deformation due to medical malpractice but then ID hospital has erased those thoughts with my surgery results! It is only a month after my surgeries but the results speak for themselves! So I only trust ID hospital!

ID Hospital: What would you like to say to other transgender patients? Any messages you would like to share?

Gabbie: Being a transgender itself is very difficult; moreover to have features that are very masculine makes it even harder. These features “out” you to people which will rebound to disrespect and bullying. That is why I had FFS with ID hospital because I do not want to ever experience being bullied for who I choose to be. ID hospital has qualified doctors who specialize in FFS. Now I am more confident and happy with a more feminine looking face.
