After a personal Facial Feminization evaluation and series of assessments, the FACIALTEAM directors carefully consider the factors involved jointly with the patient´s realistic goals for facial feminization surgery. Our FFS treatments are based on a combination of maxillofacial surgery (bone sculpture) and aesthetic surgery, with expert specialists in each area.
