Transgender M2F Finds a Voice and Hero in Dr.Semone Rochlin in a Scottsdale Az.

I spent a long time searching and researching for a Dr to help me with my gender transition. Finding a Dr to perform a surgery like breast implants wasn't an issue, surprisingly enough every DR I spoke to would have done anything I wanted, whenever/wherever without even as much as asking my prior surgeries or for that matter my end goal! Right away I knew I found my soldier in this gender battle I had been fighting and completely alone up until I found my hero, Dr.Semone Rochlin in Scottsdale Az! she had a special plan made do for me. She explained that every patient in this journey has to do things in a certain pattern/order and what may have worked on a prior may not necessarily work the same for the next patient. She met with me privately, and purposely on a Time when the office wasn't soo busy to insure I'd feel very comfortable and at ease with her and with the staff-to which I did. Bed side manner is a huge deal to me, being treated with respect and kindness makes one feel equal or just like any other girl seeing the Dr. She first laid out the plan she felt best suited to my specific needs in transitioning from a genetic male to a fully functioning, beutiful and healthy female! Physically and even legally! First she suggested a healthy eating plan, as she put it, not a diet, not a quick fix but a healthier way of life. Then we decided to do an upper Blaphioplasty to remove the droopy skin that hung over my eyes causing me to look always appear tired and older in my appearance (though I was not young l, I was 39 at this point) then to really feminize my face to give me a more youthful female appearance she put in a medium size upper and lower lip implant, I wanted the Extra large ones but she said that to blend in and still give me that pouty sultry look/smile the medium was perfect, that the larger ones would look too fake and un natural, keep in mind I want to look like a beautiful woman not a freak show that everyone starred at. Next she contoured my jaw line and chin area by removing all the saggy loose skin from loosing weight and what just naturally occurred to me as I got older, the turkey kneck had to go LoL. She then did a very smooth, non agressive mid lift with a eye brow lift. Injected my cheek bone area with a semi permenate filler to show me whet I would look like with a check implant because I wasn't sure if I wanted the permenate high cheek bones. She also used Botox to help smooth out fine lines and wrinkles and did a chemical peal/facial at the end to really pull the look together! Again let me ad, there was little to no pain at all! The cost, which I really didn't care about because "Ladies" this is one area you don't want to be cheap on but the cost was soo much cheaper then her competitors that I was able to fly in my mom to help me with my recovery period because I had saved soo much! Now that I had a beautiful face, a face that I'm constantly told I look like Angeline Jolee/Pitt, she asked if I wanted to feminize my body before I went in for my construction of my Vagina or as they call Vaginal Plasty. Made sense! A lot of sense! She would take fat from my middle section, back, sides, flanks etc and inject in right back into my butt, thighs/hips giving me that perfect hour glass body and using the Gummie implants for a more natural look and feel. She stayted some of that fat harvested by Lipoing those areas may dicipate/dissapear or dissolve in time but a large portion will stay. And none taken would just shift back like my friends and I thought. So I may have to so it a few times but it was not at all expensive and really, what was my alternative? Have illegal silicone injected loosely into my butt and legs risking instant death or a pro longed, agonizing death if an infection occurred later on? Hell no! Ladies, there is a safer and more natural healthy way to feminize your face with fillers or fat transfer and yes even feminize your body by simply harvesting/transferring around your body's own natural fat to achieve that beautiful and feminine look we all want to achieve as Transgendered women. She was and is a wonderful Transitional Coach for Transexuals / Transgendered woman/girls who want a more femine look and appearance through a healthy lifestyle and safe, legal procedures that are cost effective, quick healing times by a well trained, knowledgable GLBTQ Dr who has been a voice to many when they had none!!! Thankyou Dr.Semine Rochlin, not just for performing all my surgeries, but Thankyou for a higher quality of life through acceptance and knowledge. You are not only a Doctor but truly you are an artist.
