Facial Feminization Surgery: A Global Approach. Luis Capitán, Daniel Simon. In: Christopher Salgado, Stan Monstrey, Miroslav Djordjevic, eds. Gender Affirmation: Medical and Surgical Perspectives. New York, NY: Thieme Medical Publisher, Inc. • Nov 2016
The rapidly evolving field of transgender health and the need for well-educated providers caring for transgender and gender nonconforming persons provided the impetus for this book. As an ever-growing number of health care providers incorporate transgender care into their practices, it is imperative that we ensure appropriate training as well as high-quality evidence-based tools to guide their management. It is our goal with the publication of this chapter to contribute to this fund of knowledge.

The book also speaks about other surgeries common to the transgender patient, such as voice, breast surgery, vaginoplasty, falloplasty as well as other medical treatments involving hormones, adolescents, mental and sexual health, and issues of gender identity.
