OUR PHILOSOPHY

FACIALTEAM’s philosophy is based on the individualization of each treatment. Each face requires a different series of procedures in order to achieve a unique look, more harmonious and feminine

INTRODUCTION

 

Dear Patient, FACIALTEAM’s philosophy is based on the individualization of each treatment. Each face requires a different series of procedures in order to achieve a unique look, more harmonious and feminine. FFS is much more than just employing the correct procedure; It is understanding the global relation of all facial features within the frame of gender traits and how specific changes will affect your overall look. Within our website you will find detailed information about facial feminization surgery and all the surgical procedures associated with it. Dr. Capitán and Dr. Simon welcome you, appreciate your visit and encourage you to learn more about the world of facial feminization.

 

FACIAL FEMINIZATION SURGERY

 

Facial Feminization Surgery (FFS) is the term given to a set of surgical procedures that aim to modify a masculine face or one with highly pronounced features, for a softened and harmonized reflection, more in accordance with modern standards of femininity.

 

Why Facial Feminization Surgery?

 

FFS is increasingly sought by transgender women. Psychologically, it may even be considered more important than gender reassignment surgery, as it significantly assists in social integration for transgender women.

 


The face, at a glance, gives us the first impression of a person…in that split second, our brain labels a gender.


 

 

While other parts of the body can be hidden, camouflaged or exaggerated to look more feminine, it is not always possible to mimic feminine facial features without surgical intervention. For this reason male-to-female transgender patients seek this surgery as a way to transform the face to ultimately encourage their social integration. FFS techniques allows us to obtain major bone and soft-tissue changes that are often also desired by biological females with more prominent “masculine” features.

 

A new concept in Feminization: bone sculpture

 

Worldwide, only a small number of centers are specialized in Facial Feminization Surgery. In recent years the facial skeleton has been treated almost exclusively by maxillofacial or craniofacial surgeons. Improvements in surgical procedures and approaches to the facial bone complex have allowed remarkable results in these two specialties. The ability to transfer these innovative techniques to the field of FFS allows us to deal directly with the bone shape. The effects of bone sculpture are predictable, which guarantees our results over the long term.

How to achieve better, long-lasting results?

 

The soft tissues (skin, fat, muscle) are exposed to numerous agents of change (contraction and muscle relaxation, liquid retention, gravitational effect, loss of elasticity and cohesive properties, etc.), which make it difficult to predict the results of a surgery on these tissues over the long term. On the contrary, the facial skeleton is not subject to the same change vectors as those mentioned above, meaning that surgical modifications will remain unchanged over time. Considering this advantage and with an understanding of the principal differences between male and female facial skeletons, we are able to redefine a human skeleton to achieve a more harmonious and, finally, more feminine face.

 

Treatment planning

 


The key to achieve highly satisfactory results in FFS occurs after meticulous planning and the appropriate choice of techniques best suited to the needs and wishes of the patient.


 

 

There is no strict protocol of action as each feminization is unique. The election of procedures adapted to each type of face will determine the final result, aiming for the harmonious and feminine. In general, there is a facial area that we will call primary which is the main focus of the feminization surgery. After a facial analysis, it may be recommended to act on secondary areas in order to optimize the final result. Any additional procedures will depend largely on realistic expectations of the patient and a careful evaluation by the surgical team. It is important to develop clear ideas about the facial areas you would like modified.

 


Treatment planning is based on a combination of physical assessments, x-rays, anthropometric measurements, photographs, art and most importantly– the self-evaluation of the patient.


 

 

Special note from Dr. Capitán & Dr. Simon:

 

We inform all patients interested in FFS that the surgical procedures carried out in this type of surgery seek to achieve harmonic results, feminine and natural, and that are not intended to change the physiognomy of the face itself or make extreme changes. It is therefore essential that patients have realistic expectations of the outcomes of FFS and it´s impact on their life, which we believe will thus positively influence the recovery and adaptation period during this important step in the transitional process.
