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, held in Marbella, Spain, on Friday, April 5th 2019.

Dr. Suporn Watanyusakul, widely known for his dedicated practice for transgender patients, outlined his gender transition surgery methods.
