Livestreams AMA with FACIALTEAM

May 21, 2020

We welcome our fans and followers to our new channel of communication on social media. The AMA (Ask Me Anything) FACIALTEAM livestreams and webinars are happening!

News and popular topics you need, today.

Better said, weekly and mostly on Wednesdays!  I’m Lilia and my pronouns are she and hers. I created the FACIALTEAM FB group 8 years ago, for two reasons: to create a space where we could all supports one another and also a venue that made researching gender identity services simpler, since the information overload is overwhelming nowadays.

These Livestreams are a way to communicate important info to you, our followers, to provide a beacon where your questions regarding transition may be answered.

Livestream Q&A with Lilia and special guests–Wednesday’s mostly!

The first Live episode was with Lilia in mid-April, who has been working in the field of FFS Surgery since 2008, when she began as a patient coordinator. Since then, she has managed many live events: a directors discussion about a trans documentary, interviewed experts in medical pigmentation for trans women, things to do when beginning transition as well as introduce her colleagues at FACIALTEAM for special updates and a reveal of our Postoperative Patient Guide.

Lilia says, “I’ve always felt like a patient advocate since my work is building relationships based on trust. Issues like trans healthcare access and patient care systems are part of an ethical foundation crucial to my job of interacting with the minority groups in the LGBTIQ+ community.”

In her inaugural livestream for FACIALTEAM, Lilia addressed some current recurring topics found on platforms like Reddit, Facebook and Youtube on the topic of facial feminization surgery.

“I’ve been listening to the community for over a decade, watching how people have gradually become more proactive, connected with one another and hence better informed about all aspects of medical transition. Now it is our turn as providers to reach out online to provide information in the most transparent way possible.”

Dr. Simon Livestream

Dr. Daniel Simon, cofounder and co-CEO of FACIALTEAM, has reached out via livestream and the recordings are available in the patient group and on our Youtube channel.  Dr. Capitán has duplicated this “update and news” event on May 21st, in Spanish.

Dr. Simon spoke a bit about FACIALTEAM’s career and, most importantly, a glimpse of what is in the works for the future. Closing with a Q&A on the topics participants request in the live event, the talk was a unique opportunity to meet with a facial feminisation surgeon in “public.”

“My main objective with future livestreams is to provide reliable information about FACIALTEAM and facial gender surgery on an easily accessible venue where it is convenient for the community to connect with us.”

The event is sure to be of great value and interest, hearing from and being able to propose questions in real time with an expert in the field.
