About the Zukowski Center


Dr Zukowski and his staff at the Zukowski Center are renowned worldwide for being the best in FFS Facial Feminization Surgery. Based in Chicago America, Mark Zukowski is recognized within the transgender community as being the best.Dr. Zukowski has been at the forefront of endoscopic plastic surgery minimal scar techniques for over 24 years and he has taught these procedures to surgeons throughout the world. While in the US Navy paying back a military scholarship debt, he met one of the three inventors of endoscopic plastic surgery techniques who mentored him in this field. Only a handful of surgeons in the world can make the claim of performing endoscopic plastic surgery techniques since May of 1993, and none besides Dr. Zukowski do FFS. We are the only FFS center in the world that performs both the soft tissue and aggressive three dimensional bone recontouring of the forehead frontal bone using endoscopic techniques. Endoscopic techniques are the standard of care in surgery today. Would you want your gallbladder removed thru a traditional 12 inch "open" incision or thru three half inch endoscopic incisions?  Would you want to have your knee surgery done thru a traditional 6 to 8 inch "open" incision or thru a series of endoscopic stab marks? Change is slow to plastic surgery and the people that say that endoscopic techniques do not work simply cannot do them. The thousands of patients that Dr. Zukowski has performed these techniques upon are testaments to the effectiveness of this procedure. These are not your grandfathers feminization techniques!

The latest in endoscopic technical innovations are meshed with gold standard techniques to give you a better, less invasive results that avoids traditional complications. Open, more invasive procedures can be performed by any board certified plastic surgeon, but these techniques carry built-in complications regardless of the surgeon that performs them. Longer scars, permanent hair loss, numbness and abnormal sensitivity to the scalp, and a lifetime of sinus headaches and runny noses are just a few of the proven forehead complications associated with "open" more invasive techniques. These occur regardless of who the surgeon is. If you like playing russian roulette as they relate to complications, then open forehead techniques are perfect for you. That is why the entire field of surgery worldwide has shifted to endoscopic techniques. If you do not believe me, then talk to my patients about their experiences with open techniques performed by other surgeons that I have revised.
