“After most of my life living a secret occasional fem life I decided I had enough and over a year ago transitioned to a full time existence. I accompanied a friend to an appraisal with Dr Simon here in Melbourne and after seeing the results of their procedures and the very natural look was also given a consultation.I was very apprehensive when I arrived in Marbella but after my pre op consultation with the doctors I was overwhelmed with the enthusiasm and warmth they displayed. Having never been to hospital at that time I was really impressed with the HC facility and the care provided. The whole Facialteam was so professional and warm and I am very happy with my look and the extra confidence it gives me in public. Once again with many fond memories from my stay in Marbella, thanks to the doctors and the team for helping me be myself in my new life.”

Debra’s Story

Several years ago, Debra approached Facialteam to discuss the possibilities for facial feminization surgery with our team of surgeons. Debra is a 70 year old patient who traveled from United Kingdom to have a consultation with our surgeons to evaluate her facial features and come up with the right selection of facial feminization procedures, completely personalized for Debra. Based on her goals and the recommendations from our surgical team we came up with the following treatment plan:

As Debra considered the area around her eyes had masculine traits and expressed her interest in a brow bone reduction, part of the process of feminizing the forehead region. Forehead feminization procedures at Facialteam aim to achieve a significant and specific change in the expression around the eyes, the ultimate goal of our FOREContour® method is to approximate the original contours and position of the facial bone and eyebrows, before hormones caused changes in puberty.

Feminization of the jaw was recommended to modify the size and shape of the mandibular body to have a more feminine appearance. The stereotypical female jaw exhibits a series of characteristics that commonly influence gender recognition, especially when combined with other social constructs associated with femininity, hence, this is a procedure that is often recommended for patients.

With chin feminization the height, width and projection of the chin can be harmonized, all of them give the face a more typically feminine appearance. Just like the majority of trans women who have been through puberty, Debra considered feminizing the area of the neck by reducing the size of Adam’s Apple.

Our method TContour® allows us to achieve natural and safe results in trachea shaves, with a less visible Adam’s Apple as a result.

Shortly after her surgery, Debra sent us a written testimonial to express how she experienced her journey with Facialteam. We love to hear from our patients and try to share all these lovely words with our audience as it can greatly help other patients that are considering facial feminization surgery as well.

We also invited Debra for an interview to understand better how she experienced her surgery with Facialteam and how Facial Feminization Surgery changed her life.

Hearing these stories from our patients is emotional but really makes our work worth it!
