Facial Feminization in UK

FFS Surgery in United Kingdom

FACIALTEAM, an integrated group of specialists in facial feminization surgery since 2008 and with award-winning research, is focused on the constant innovation of facial gender surgery which will ultimately improve the quality of life of trans women.

Comprised of 6 surgeons and a crew of over 30 highly trained support staff, each is specialized in specific areas of FFS surgery in order to achieve the best feminization results for each anatomical area, with extra-special attention on the planning and healing process.

Thanks to a global vision of the surgical experience and emphasis on natural FFS results with hidden scars, our FFS patients report high levels of satisfaction, as exemplified in our FFS surgery before and after images gallery with over 50 published cases.

What is FFS Surgery in United Kingdom

When we talk about FFS surgery, we are referring to a personalized set of surgical procedures through which we modify and sculpt the facial skeleton. Thus, we are able to improve features that, in general, we associate with the masculine gender by softening the shape and modifying the volumes to more feminine parameters. In short, the male features of the skull that developed due to hormones in puberty are reversed to a great extent.

The surgery is for anyone wishing to diminish masculine aspects, although it is most frequently sought by binary-identifying transfeminine women seeking a medical gender transition.

The key to achieving the natural FFS results that our patients seek with face feminization surgery is based upon the following pillars:

  • A philosophy that permits the conservation of family or ethnic traits, that adapts to personal or cultural preferences yet also allows for rejuvenation or beautification when desired.
  • Careful planning with modern 3D diagnostics of the essential or elective procedures–in accordance with the primary objectives of the individual– and implementation of more efficient techniques, such as the hidden crown approach forehead reduction, that takes advantage of available grafts for simultaneous hair transplants to round the hairline.
  • Hidden incisions for the adam’s apple reduction and inside the mouth and the use of ultrasonic instruments and osteotomy guides to reshape the jaw, methods which dramatically augment predictability and reduce trauma to the surrounding tissue for a significantly smoother recuperation.
  • A controlled aftercare program that provides the optimal conditions for healing and avoidance of complications.

FFS Surgery before and after results UK

Patients are naturally concerned about how their needs will be met once they leave Marbella. Our Postoperative Care Specialists will continue to follow up with you for at least a year after surgery. Our patients are encouraged to complete the ffs surgery before and after satisfaction questionnaires, both about the process and the ffs results. Based on the feedback of these surveys over the years, a high degree of satisfaction at each of the stages of facial feminization is reported, as well as with the results obtained.

Our ffs surgery before and after photo gallery speaks for itself: the satisfactory outcomes are visibly appreciated in both the quality and number of cases.

It didn’t take too long to find consistently positive references to FACIALTEAM and it was a nice surprise to find a European clinic at the top of the tree when I’d expected either America or Thailand.


FFS Trans Testimonial - Malin for Facialteam
The results are truly remarkable. I still have a massive smile on my face every time I look in the mirror. From the start, I was guided all the way through the process, given advice and able to discuss exactly what my needs were. FACIALTEAM are caring and compassionate professionals who were there with me all the way and are still with me today. As far as I am concerned, they are the best FFS surgical team globally.

FFS Trans Testimonial - Ashley for Facialteam
I was surprised that I wasn’t more black and blue for the presentation in London (only 10 days postop). Most people refused to believe I had undergone such extensive surgery so recently! There has been no discoloration visible since I left and the swelling in the nose and chin has been dropping very fast!

Keira FFS Trans Testimonial - Keira for Facialteam
The assessment was free and informative. Also, a great feature they offer is Alex from Virtual FFS, who sits in the consultation and then shows you the proposed changes in real time, which is amazing.


Drs. Capitan and Simon, and the rest of the FACIALTEAM group, are truly exceptional. They are involved in advancing the science of facial feminization and practice on the cutting edge of practice. Their results are outstanding. Perhaps, however, even more important is the comprehensive and supportive care they and their staff provide before, during and after your surgery. They are truly world class.

What a wonderful team FACIALTEAM is! They made me feel very comfortable and in very capable hands, all the way from the very first consultation to follow-up meetings months afterward. I can strongly recommend having a FFS done by FACIALTEAM, especially if you want to become more confident as a woman and successful with your transition.
