22/08/13 5 5 5 5 I sought out Dr.Mark Zukowski ten years ago to achieve facial feminization.I underwent full facial surgery tracheal,jaw,brow burring,cheek implants,scalp advancement/brow lift and fat injections.I was better than new. He saw my treatment through to perfection. I have kept in contact with Dr. Zukowski over the years. Last year I retired and was able to make my own personal full transition. I went back to Dr Z for what I call my post-retirement maintenance.I received upper eye-lid, mid-face/neck lift, breast aug., lipo and fat injections. Also within the Zukowski Center is a permanent make-up artist. She was able to better define lips, eye-liner, browse and lets not forget 1220 folicular hair units that will sprout in May.These were the final procedures needed to completely be happy in my own body. Every day I look in the mirror and I thank Dr. Zukowski. He has given me a priceless gift that I will forever be thankful for.  Respond

18/04/12 5 4 5 5 Had complete FFS by Dr. Z in January 2012. I feel his recommendations for procedures was excellent. Dr Z was patient, forthcoming, and answered every question well. His staff was very nice. His post op care has been excelllent. I am very pleased with the results of my FFS and my selection of this surgeon. I feel that he is the best doctor for FFS in North America.

21/03/11 5 5 5 5 I flew out to Chicago for a FFS (Full Facial Feminization Surgery) consult. Dr. Zukowski's staff was excellent, and he was extremely attentive to me and my needs. Without telling him a thing he was able to address all of my major concerns professionally and expertly. I've done extensive research and would not allow just any surgeon to complete my FFS. I am however committed to allow Dr. Zukowski to perform my FFS as he is non biased, without prejudice and his results are stellar.  Respond

30/04/10 3 3 2 3 Note: I have not had surgery with Dr. Zukowski. During my consult he suggested a procedure that didn't physically make sense to me, though I didn't follow this up with him. After my consult he openly criticized the appearance of my results from another surgeon while speaking with another prospective patient in my presence in the lobby. I believe this may be a HIPAA violation (I had signed no release form). He made it seem that he believed certain elements of the other surgeon's surgical style were faulty. When I asked him about what was specifically wrong, he blew off my question. The other patient responded by saying that she thought I looked very good. Later I saw 2 craniofacial surgeons, both of whom told me that I look good (above average), and that further surgery isn't necessary. I am glad that I didn't have further surgery, with Dr. Zukowski or anyone else. I didn't get a good vibe from Dr. Zukowski; seemed more intent on selling surgery than my best interests.  Respond

15/09/08 4 1 4 5 He did a rhinoplasty and facelift on me with facial lipo. Very happy with nose and facelift, but irregularity under chin from lipo. Dr. came to my motel room where I was staying to check up on me twice. Consultations with him and followup appointments: Usually not on time, and during appointments there are frequent interruptions. Too busy selling himself to listen–hard to get in a word edgewise. didn't fully inform about how things would be post-op. I had to cut a hunk of my long hair off which was caked with blood. A word of recommendation: Dr. Zukowski is well known for outstanding results with facial feminization surgery–I've known several individuals who were very attractive and feminine due to his expertise.
