“Such a good result from Facialteam. Thanks to the surgeons Dr Luis Capitan, Dr Daniel Simon, Dr Raul Bellinga and Dr Merlot and all their team. My life changing experience has already commenced. The after care I received from the staff at High Care Hospital and Facialteam is immense, nothing is to much to do/change/organise. I have returned knowing I will not be challenged in who I am anymore, with such confidence, I even challenged the border security when the bio recognition scanner did not let me through, told them just what they could do with that!

Hannah’s Story

Several years ago, Hannah approached Facialteam to discuss the possibilities for facial feminization surgery with our team of surgeons. Hannah is a 73 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 Hannah. Based on her goals and the recommendations from our surgical team we came up with the following treatment plan:

As Hannah 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.

To emphasize the cheeks and make Hannah’s eyes appear larger, a feminizing rhinoplasty was recommended. As the central feature of the face, a more feminine nose often is key for the global result of facial feminization surgery.

Nose feminization is often combined with a forehead reconstruction to create a smooth transition from the brow bone to the nose.

Just like the majority of trans women who have been through puberty, Hannah 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.

Longer, thinner upper lips with little visibility of the upper teeth are a typical masculine trait. To compliment the set of procedures, a feminizing lip lift and a blefaroplasty were performed to give the facial area more volume and projection.

Shortly after her surgery, Hannah 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.
