MOVE ARROWS SIDE TO SIDE TO SEE ALL BEFORE AND AFTER PHOTOS
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
