The objective behind a meeting of this magnitude is to disseminate directly from the experts, the most accurate information about surgical options for transgender women. In 2014, Dr. Simon provided the first informational sessions about facial feminization in Australia and, due to the growing demand, the event has been broadened to maximize the experience of the participants by inviting specialists in microfeminisation from Holland, Aprils-ToucH, as well as pioneers in electrolysis, Peach Clinics (local to Sydney).

Australia Congress 2017 - Facialteam

Information about surgical feminisation in Australia

In the 2016 edition, the representatives of these feminisation centers began to give form to the idea of a single event where trans women could obtain a wealth of information on surgeries related to gender transition.  Attendees could meet the doctors in person, chat with former patients, freely obtain voice or image tests and pose questions directly to the professionals. Due to the great success of this event, Facialteam has decided to repeat and extend the congress for a second year.

One of the rare occasions in which professionals specialized in feminisation techniques come together to make it easier for people considering surgeries to become better informed, but also how best to plan treatments in time. Since a surgical transition can be overwhelming, it is advisable to gather as much information as possible before taking any steps, always seeking advice from multiple professionals.
