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 yourself — 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 your transition journey. With total respect for your gender identity, our detail-oriented care protocol attends specifically to your emotional and physical needs during the FFS process.

Your Journey

Transitioning is an ongoing journey made more complex if surgery is involved. That’s why we have a total care approach to your FFS experience. We support you at each step because your health and well-being matter too. 

For this reason, our comprehensive care streamlines your FFS process with attention to detail at each stage: before, during and after surgery. We help with many aspects of your medical transition so you’ll have more time to focus on your personal facial feminization process without the worry of finding a relaxing place for recovery or do-it-yourself post-op care. 

You have likely asked yourself, “How do I find the right FFS surgeon? How should I prepare for my FFS Surgery? What happens after I get back home after surgery?”  We’ve gathered all information you need in a Facial Feminization roadmap, to understand what is involved in Your Journey with Facialteam.

The Foundation by Facialteam

Building on the principles that form the backbone of Facialteam – empathy, diversity, inclusiveness, freedom, dignity, education, gender equality, and respect – we’re embarking on an ambitious new endeavor. This endeavor is none other than our newly launched foundation: The Foundation, by Facialteam.

The Foundation is an expression of our commitment to the cause of gender diverse people, particularly those from the trans and nonbinary community. It’s a manifestation of our belief that change begins with understanding, and understanding begins with conversation and education. It’s an embodiment of our dedication to not just discuss, but actively work towards a world where everyone, regardless of their gender identity, is treated with dignity, respect, and fairness.

We recognize the boundless potential within the trans and nonbinary community and understand that, often, the best solutions come from those who’ve lived the challenges firsthand. That’s where The Foundation steps in: with a commitment to support and champion grassroots initiatives emerging directly from the community, many of which are eagerly awaiting crowdfunding or public subsidies to come to life.
