Experts in Facial Feminization Surgery (FFS)
Facialteam’s philosophy on Facial Feminization Surgery is based on precision, predictability and natural results that reflect the most feminine version of you — without visible scars. The goal is to eliminate, to the utmost, the masculinizing changes that occur to the facial bones during puberty.
Each face is unique. Therefore, each procedure is personalized in order to achieve the maximum in feminine contours in your case. Facial gender-affirming surgery is not just employing the correct FFS techniques; it is analyzing facial harmony within the frame of gender traits and how specific facial features will affect your overall look.
We prioritize your safety, goals and satisfaction, which is why communication is key to our patient-clinic relationships. Also, it is why the development of FFS techniques and methods is a central pillar of our practice.
Our multidisciplinary approach to FFS trans patient care and services reflects the team’s commitment to you. With total respect for your gender identity, our detail-oriented care protocol attends specifically to your emotional and physical needs during the FFS process.
