Since then, they have completed more than 1,200 Facial Gender Confirmation procedures together and 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 FEMINISATION 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.

  • 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.
