Our team

Our team in Spain consists of over 60 top professionals with extensive experience in over 6500 facial feminization procedures, for 2100+ patients from 47 countries (as of December 2021).

Combined, our FFS surgeons sum up 40+ years of experience, working together with your best interest in mind. Every professional of our multidisciplinary team plays an important role in your gender affirming journey. 

We put your well-being at center stage, so you feel confident at every step of the way. So, who are Facialteam’s facial feminization surgeons?

Facial Feminization Surgeons

We are not just one, but an integrated team of 9 facial feminization surgeons who work together in different configurations, depending on the patient profile. This means your surgery is seen from the perspective of a variety of skilled experts, so both technical advancements and risk prevention are made easier. In addition, our team work allows tasks to be streamlined so each FFS surgeon can operate at their most efficient level. A group dynamic is considered best practice in any field because it also encourages innovation and avoids the problems associated with fatigue, important when considering the average time a facial feminization surgeon spends in the operating theater. Last but not least, our practice of hyper specialization permits FFS surgeons to focus on the minute specifics of a technique. This is yet another way our facial gender surgeons invest in developing methods for the ultimate benefit of patients, part of the foundation behind the scientific research activity conducted in parallel to our day-to-day operations. Let’s get to know the dedicated facial feminization experts behind the scenes:
