Welcome to Facial Team, “World Leader in Facial Feminization Surgery”
Our primary expertise is Facial Feminization Surgery.
Cofounded and directed by Dr. Luis Capitán (Spain) and Dr. Daniel Simon (Brazil), the team has treated more than 600 transgender patients since initiating the specialization in 2008 in Marbella (Spain). In 2010 Facial Team inaugurated a new facial feminization center in Sao Paulo (Brazil). The directors, both WPATH members, have been invited speakers on Facial Feminization Surgery at many scientific congresses, always seeking to implement technical advancements in the best interest of our patients.In addition, we offer educational seminars on FFS, conduct post-op visits as well as initial evaluations for Facial Feminization Surgery (free of charge) in the following locations: London, Eastbourne & Manchester, Brussells, Milan, Berlin and Barcelona among other international cities.Please visit the FACIAL TEAM YouTube channel to view patient testimonials as well as 3-D Facial Feminization videos of surgical techniques : Facial Team: Facial Feminization Surgical Specialists on YouTube
The positive feed-back that has been received from our satisfied patients reinforces our belief in providing superior patient services and exceptional surgical results as seen in our Before & After Facial Feminization Gallery.
We believe that every intervention should be personalized according to the individual´s needs and objectives, within a logical and medical perspective. After a personal Facial Feminization evaluation and series of assessments, the Facial Team 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.
We are proud of our experienced group of Facial Feminization professionals – nurses, coordinators and administrators – who are fully prepared to assist you in all aspects of your Facial Team experience. We are available to our patients 24-hours a day after surgery! Please see our list of Frequently Asked Questions which help our patients prepare for a Typical Stay in Marbella with FACIAL TEAM for facial feminization surgery.

Weeks after surgery: My swelling continues to go down and feeling is returning to my nose and bottom lip so all is progressing well. I have been walking around in Paris feeling very confident and I like seeing my new face when I catch my reflection in the shop mirrors. It is also lovely being called ‘Madame’ all the time.
Months after surgery: You inevitably judge the success of an operation like this in the way other people react to you and the doctors appear to have struck the right balance between feminization and retaining the character of my face. …
1-year postop Skype consultation: Seeing you again reminded us once more of the genuine enthusiasm you both have for your work and the dedication you show to your patients. You’re also great ambassadors for the kind nature we have experienced from the Spanish people wherever we travelled.

My Experience/ Mi experiencia
I was surprised that I wasnt more black and blue for the presentation in London (only 10 days postop).. most people refused to believe I had undergone such extensive surgery so recently! There has been no discoloration visible since I left and the swelling in the nose and chin has been dropping very fast! The talk about transgender identities at the conference was packed- more attendees than any other talk at the conference, with very good feedback. There were people who broke down (emotionally) in front of some of the exhibits and we have photographs of others who were praying — so very powerful stuff. Thank you again for your amazing compassion and attention. x K

I want to say that my experience was wonderful: perfect organization and, thanks to Lilia, a careful assistance from the arrival to the departure! She gave me a Clinic mobile phone and she was always available at my needs, both with suggestion and support. I found in Dr. Simon a very empathetic and understanding surgeon, as well as technical and aesthetically qualified and accomplished. Immediatly I felt to be on the same wavelenght with both the doctors of the Clinic, Dr. Simon and Dr. Captain, and it’s very important to find the right feeling and self confidence in a major surgery like this. The USP hospital it’s a very modern medical facility, with the best level of assistance. Finally it’s worth to say that Marbella it’a a very famous and nice tourist resort, very beautiful in every season. So I’m very proud to recommend this Clinic to all the person that wish to have an excellent surgery, understanding surgeon in the process to find the most suitable procedure, and, not to mention, at the fair price!”

Hello .. My name is Ema Sofia. I had facial feminization surgery with Facial Team on September 28, 2010. And I”m very happy, not only with the results, but also with empathy and treme degree of humanity that the whole multidisciplinary team has shown me.It was an adventure from Portugal, alone, travelling 850 km in search of a dream, a goal to feel good about myself. I was nervous because I did not know what I would find, I felt alone in this process that is a radical transformation in how we present ourselves to the world. But I felt calm because the contacts made previously offered me comfort and a great organization demonstrated by Dr Daniel and Ana González. I must say that I never felt alone in those 11 days I spent in Marbella. I was facilitated a phone with all the contacts of the team … I had pre and post operative, almost every day and the soothing voice of Ana whenever I needed something. The surgery, which lasted seven hours, could have left great pain or discomfort, but the joy was so great that all the fear and anguish dissipated. I spent two days at the USP Hospital de Marbella, and I lacked nothing. Attentive staff and a well equipped suite. What pleased me a lot and helped me with a quick recovery was the mask used during hospitalization. Everything went so well that two days after discharge from hospital I went to drive my car to the hotel without any problem, even Dr. Luis was concerned about this show of my attitude. After 5 days postoperatively, I was able to chew food with some discomfort, but it slowly went to it´s site. I will never forget this team because they attended the rebirth … I went to my family after those 11 days and I know they shared my joy with me. It pained me to leave, say goodbye to them, but that”s life, they did their part and I had to embrace my new life with a high well-being and self-esteem that I never had in 37 years. I waited almost three months to feel prepared to write this testimony. Thank you, Dr. Daniel Simon, Dr. Louis Capitan, Dr. Kaye, Ana González, nurse Milagros, and the entire multidisciplinary staff that welcomed me. A kiss. Figueira da Foz, 15 December 17.12.2010

This innovative approach, applied for the first time by FACIAL TEAM to the FFS consultation, will help patients to understand the changes which may be produced with bone sculpture
**Please note that virtual results have limitations and may differ from actual results
During your personal consultation with the surgeon, the virtual** FFS Specialist, Alexandra Hamer, will modify various photos right before your eyes so you may envision the potential results of your feminisation in different angles.
In addition to the digitalised results, Alexandra also provides her expert opinion, completely independent from the surgeons.
This comprehensive approach to the consultation gives patients a better perspective of their own treatment

EMAIL & VIDEOCONFERENCE CONSULTATIONS
To receive an evaluation by SKYPE, we will need the following:
- Don’t hold the camera yourself and try not to use mirrors.
- Keep the camera at least 6 feet (2 metres) away from your face.
- Camera Angle: The camera should be at eye level. Try to keep your head and gaze horizontal
- The pictures should be well lit and in focus, but not in direct sunlight.
- Keep a blank expression, without a smile.
- It is best to turn your whole body to get the different angles rather than just turning your head.
- Keep your hair tied back so your cheeks and forehead are revealed
- Picture Size. Up to 1 MB is sufficient
- Try to have a blank and neutral color background
- Don’t wear glasses.
- It’s fine to wear light make-up, but avoid heavy eyeliner or eye-shadows.
