Dr. Simon & Dr. Capitán

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.

  • 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. Merryn, UK, 2014.

  • 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.

    Megan Smith, Australia. 2015
  • FFS has made it easier for my friends to accept me in my new role as a woman…that has become the most gratifying result for me. I strongly recommend FACIALTEAM, especially if you want to become more confident as a woman and successful with your transition.
