Typical Stay in Marbella
Typical Facial Feminization Programme
Day 1 – 2: Arrival & Preops
The trip from Málaga airport (AGP) to Marbella takes around 45 minutes in either Shuttle bus (7€) or taxi (70€).
Depending on your flight, you may come directly to the Hospital where your pre-operative consultation takes place. During this meeting with the surgeons you will confirm the treatment plan and discuss the procedures in fine detail. The patient coordinator will help you with the schedule during this week.
It may be helpful to buy some essentials before surgery. This will allow you to spend your post-operative time getting plenty of rest. It is very important that you do not eat or drink at least 8 hours before surgery. It is normal to be nervous before surgery, but try to take some time to relax.
Day 2 – 3: Surgery
You will meet with the surgeons prior to the surgery for pre-op planning. One hour before surgery, the patient coordinator will accompany you to Admissions. Immediately after surgery, a specially designed cooling mask is put on, with which you will spend the whole night. After a few hours in observation, the patient is transferred to their private room.
The postoperative stay in hospital is usually 1 to 2 nights, depending on the extent of the surgery and if you have a companion or not. The surgeons, nurses, anaesthesiologist and the patient coordinator will be visiting you routinely during your stay in the hospital.
Days 3 – 4
Leaving the hospital: If you come alone, you will need a taxi to go to the Hotel with the option of having a nurse escort initially. Our patients coordinators will make sure that nothing needed is missing to spend the night comfortably and safely.
Days 4 – 8
Check ups will be required to change the bandages and for any cold mask sessions necesary. You will always be only one phone call away, 24 hours a day, as we will lend you a mobile phone.
Days 9 – 13
Final check-up and departure: You will be evaluated by the surgeons prior to leaving. The nurse will remove any stitches, staples and bandages remaining.
The patient coordinator will give you any authorizations and medical prescriptions needed and will arrange a taxi to take you to the airport.
