Dr. Simon & Dr. Capitán
FACIALTEAM co-founders & head surgeons, Dr. Luis Capitán (Spain) & Dr. Daniel Simon (Brazil), began offering FFS in 2007. Since completing more than 850 Facial Gender Confirmation procedures together, they have developed pioneering techniques and advanced research in this surgical field.
Combining the latest technology in surgical techniques with a multidisciplinary approach, they achieve excellence in results with proven expertise in the field of FACIAL FEMINIZATION SURGERY. The comprehensive team analyzes each case meticulously, taking into account factors from multiple perspectives: craniofacial bone structure, plastic/aesthetics and hair – all considered within the frame of contemporary concepts on facial gender.
The co-directors of FACIALTEAM are recognized leading experts in facial bone sculpture and frequent key speakers at scientific conferences. In 2014 they published award-winning latest groundbreaking research on facial feminization in the scientific journal Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, official publication of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. New research in this journal regarding a modernized philosophy and approaches to facial surgery for transgender women is pending publication.
The TransHealth Initiative is a project created by FACIALTEAM to promote the exchange of knowledge among professionals in transgender healthcare. Both surgeons are members of EPATH and WPATH and promote international standards for best practices for transgender patients.
