The surgical group continues to figure as pioneers in the field of Facial Gender Confirmation Surgery among trans health providers around the world.

Beyond FFS Surgery in trans health


As for the experience of the patients, a new section for patient postop skincare and other topical treatments for trans women has initiated in collaboration with April’s ToucH. Although facial harmonization surgery deals with marked features at the bone level, it should not be forgotten that the perception of the face is a consequence of an array of details. That is why April’s ToucH has designed, together with Facialteam, a series of specialized products for women who want to make the final touches to enhance their feminine image. Among other treatments which add value to trans health alternatives, April’s ToucH offers MICRO-FEMINIZATION® of the hairline, eyebrows, eyelashes, lips as well as to camouflage any visible scars or imperfections on the face and body.


In the section Our Center, amplified information of the facilities and services is provided so that patients can visualize the environment where it all happens, affording some peace of mind by getting to know every aspect of facial feminization with Facialteam, a future home away from home.

Introducing Facialteam’s social responsibility work, devoted to trans health


Finally, we want to highlight Facialteam’s charity work (in process), dedicated to visualizing and empowering transgender people. Training and information are necessary when integrating people who suffer discrimination due to their gender diversity. The main activity of the this future program will be to facilitate Facial Gender Confirmation Surgery for the most disadvantaged women at high risk of suicide or social exclusion, in which case the physical transition signifies an important aspect in order to reintegrate socially, access employment or recover something as yet simple as self-esteem and the confidence to walk down the street without fear of violence or discriminatory references.


Aware that our resources are limited and this assistance cannot reach all in need, we will work in parallel on the training of students and professionals, through universities and seminars, with the aim that our contribution leads to a future where trans health is considered a necessity within society.
