In recent news, Bruce Jenner has come out to the world as a transgender female, and had adopted the name Caitlyn. After a very public interview with Diane Sawyer, and gracing the cover of the new issue of Vanity Fair, Caitlyn debuted her much more feminine appearance. New York City dermatologist and owner of MirSkin Inc., Dr. Tabasum Mir, gives her thoughts on what procedures were necessary for Bruce to transition to the knockout we now know as Caitlyn Jenner.

How do you feel about Caitlyn Jenner’s journey?
I feel like you can never fully understand what’s going on in someone’s life or in their mind if you’ve never been there. When I look at what she’s going through I can only relate it to any kind of struggle I experience in my life. I know that [when you’re experiencing hardship] the goal is always to become happy again, and for that I can only applaud her. I’m glad that she’s doing what it takes to make her feel happy again and be true to herself.
Where you shocked that Caitlyn came out to everyone in such a big way?
Not at all, because of her affiliation with the Kardashian family. When Caitlyn was Bruce Jenner, he had such a close connection to one of the most famous families in pop culture. On top of that, he was probably one of the best know Olympians, who’s still relevant in the media, because of his involvement with this family [the Kardashians]. I don’t think that she [Caitlyn] had a choice but to be so public about it; and my thought process is that if she was going to be public about it, she might as well have just gone all out. The paparazzi are constantly watching her! If she were anyone else she could have done it in seclusion, but there are lenses on her every move all the time because of the popularity of the show [“Keeping Up with The Kardashians”]; so she had no choice at all. However, with that being said, I think she did it with complete fireworks and just told the world “Look at me, here I am!” If she was going to do it publicly, I feel she did it the best way possible. It was a very elegant interview with Diane Sawyer, and a very beautiful photo shoot with Vanity Fair.
