As part of its commitment to high-quality healthcare for the transgender community, FACIALTEAM Training & Education presents the inaugural gender-affirming workshop, Updates in Gender Confirmation Surgeries for the transfeminine patient, to be held in Marbella, Spain, on Friday, April 5th 2019. This workshop features internationally recognized gender surgeons on state-of-the-art approaches in three different fields: genital, body and facial gender confirming surgery.
Gender-Affirming Workshop welcomes leading expert, Dr. Suporn Watanyusakul
Dr. Suporn Watanyusakul, widely known for his dedicated practice for transgender patients, will outline his gender transition surgery methods. Dr. Kai Kaye and Dr. Richard Fakin, founders of multinational Ocean Clinic Gender Unit, will present new techniques in body contouring and breast augmentation. Dr. Luis Capitán, Dr. Raúl J. Bellinga and Dr. Daniel Simon of FACIALTEAM, will address facial feminization surgical techniques, including forehead reconstruction, simultaneous hair transplant, feminization rhinoplasty, lower jaw contouring and Adam’s apple contouring.
Worth noting is the fact that Dr. Suporn has announced retirement from undertaking operations on a full-time basis by the end of 2019. Therefore, this event will be one of the last training opportunities available with this highly respected surgeon.
