Being able to express ourselves through our personal identities is what makes us human, and the FFS NYC clinics have become instrumental in letting people express who they truly are. There are some who have a different view of themselves from their physical appearance which ends up in some form of detachment from their personal identity. This is usually experienced by those who are within the transgender community and sometimes extends to those who feel uncomfortable with how they look.
