FACIALTEAM offers three meeting options to advance your facial feminisation research: Marbella consultations, video consultations and our international orientations around the globe. These meetings are primordial to your facial gender research. We encourage open, 2-way communication between the patient and the surgeon, key in your decision-making process. For this reason, all our consultations are complete cost-free.

 Upcoming International FFS Surgery Orientations 

FACIALTEAM’s annual international FFS Surgery orientations touch upon 4 different continents around the world each year.  Normally 1-2 day events, they are helpful to people considering facial feminization surgery gain clarity on the treatment options as well as provide tools in their research on the what FFS surgery entails:

Meet the FFS expert
Orientations include detailed 30-minute informative sessions with an FFS surgeon.  In some cases, group seminars are also provided.

Photo Shoot
The clinical-style “preop” photos are taken onsite, precisely according to the specifications for a Virtual FFS digital simulation.  These photos are also valuable for your historical records as well as assessments with other specialists.

Peer Support Group
Benefit from the group support of other attendees researching facial feminisation as well as some former patients available to relate their own personal experiences.  Some stay the day, share opinions and even make new friends.  “It was the first time I met people in the trans community and that was important for me. I’d recommend the orientations to anyone”.

Patient Coordination
Take advantage to get answers to all your queries about logistics, travel etc. with a patient relations coordinator who is there to help.

Depending on the location, there may be representatives from your local trans community association or other services such as makeup/style advisors, microfeminization specialists and hair removal providers to ensure a more complete informational experience.
