The Story of a Trans Woman’s Face

March 29, 2018

The Story of Our Patient’s Facial Feminization Was Featured in The New Yorker Magazine

“Abby Stewart sometimes thought that she was born to be a teacher. At the small college in Colorado where she was an instructor in the biology department, she enjoyed preparing lectures for business or history majors who were simply fulfilling a requirement by taking her course in anatomy and physiology. She worked hard to prove to these students that they should still care about biology, and one way she captured their attention was by describing natural phenomena that, at first glance, might seem peculiar. She revealed that clown fish—like Nemo, in the Pixar movie—are hermaphrodites, starting out as male but sometimes becoming female as they mature…” Continue reading on The New Yorker’s website.

We’re proud to announce Jennifer Fick, RN, as the newest addition to our clinical team. Jennifer has been a registered nurse for over 20 years with previous experience in cardiology, geriatrics and medical detox services.

She has provided personalised and successful cosmetic procedures to thousands of patients across the Bay Area.

“With over 16 years of experience in the medical cosmetic industry, my approach continues to be driven by the unique needs and wishes of each person I work with. Developing a treatment plan together, that considers the natural balance and proportion of your face, ensures a desired outcome that best enhances the distinctive facial features” 

 

Jennifer has extensive experience in injectable cosmetic procedures such as:

Botox Cosmetic Treatment to smooth and soften lines and wrinkles for a rejuvenated appearance

Restylane Facial Filler to replace lost facial volume due to aging, and restore the skin to a more youthful glow

Lip Fillers (Augmentation and Rejuvenation) Plump and rejuvenate the appearance of your lips with Fat Transfer, Restylane®, Juvederm®. Reduce the appearance of the lines above and below the lips with Botox® Cosmetic or Dysport®

Sclerotherapy for Varicose Veins  Reduce the appearance of varicose and “spider” veins in the legs with minimal discomfort

MIC Super B Injection Vitamin B injections to boost energy and improve the resilience of the nervous system

By prescription only:

  • Latisse®: longer, fuller lashes – clinically proven and approved
  • Retin-A®: reduce the appearance of fine lines, sun damage and improve overall skin texture

 

Touch of the winter blues? Try a MIC Super B injection for a vitamin boost!

If you’ve still got a touch of the winter blues, you might be interested in one of Jennifer’s most popular non-surgical offerings: the MIC Super B injection.

The MIC Super B consists of a pharmaceutical blend of B-complex vitamins and other non-essential amino acids that support liver function, detoxification and regulate metabolism.

Because the injection contains vital nutrients required for ATP production (mandatory for every cell in your body!) it can potentially boost energy and vitality. Some patients also report that it reduces anxiety due to vitamin B’s ability to improve the resilience of the nervous system.

 

Saturday appointments available from 10am to 7pm

Due to popular demand, we’re continuing our Saturday office hours from 10am to 7pm. Jennifer Fick and Caitlin Sacher are both available on Saturdays for injectable facial treatments and other non-surgical procedures. Make your Saturday appointment by calling us directly on (415)624.3922.

COMING SOON: PLATELET-RICH PLASMA (PRP) TREATMENTS

 

As we grow, we are continually expanding our scope of non-surgical aesthetic procedures. Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) treatments are just one of the many new procedures we have in store for you in 2015.

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is your very own blood plasma that has been enriched with platelets – blood cells whose function is to stop bleeding, promote faster healing with less swelling and bruising. Known to some as the “vampire facelift”, PRP is much less invasive than plastic surgery.

Platelet Rich Plasma harnesses your own biological nutrient-rich cells to stimulate the regeneration of the underlying structural integrity of your skin. PRP treatments are commonly used for the treatment of wrinkles or scars in the face, neck and hands.

It is now becoming possible to harness and use PRP in an office based setting.  This is a new field that our office is embracing.  Please call our office and speak to Jennifer to obtain more details at (415)624.3922.

 

A FRESH APPROACH TO AESTHETIC SURGERY

 

While we offer a wide range of aesthetic procedures – both surgical and non-surgical – you will discover that our approach to plastic surgery is methodical.

We understand that aging is an overall process that happens to all the structures of the face. And although we do not intend to promote procedures that you do not bring to our attention, we also believe that evaluating isolated features out of context to other facial structures does not always lead to the most harmonious results. That’s why we believe in evaluating the entire face when making a recommendation. Then, together, we decide on what makes the most sense for you.

Our most popular aesthetic procedures include:

Regardless of your specific concern, when you visit our office, we evaluate your unique facial features and formulate a treatment plan that is consistent with your goals and our abilities. To make an appointment, please contact our San Francisco office +1.415.624.3922.
