Dr. Daniel Simon

Co-Founder & Co-Director
FFS Expert

Son of an Argentinian filmmaker and Brazilian business owner, he’s a family man who almost pursued his musical talent instead of becoming a facial gender-affirming specialist. A tear may drop watching emotional movies but he’s known by colleagues for his brilliance and nerves of steel. Mode of travel to work: skate longboard.

After achieving his Bachelor´s Degree in Dental Medicine at Universidade Paulista (Sao Paulo, Brazil) and later specializing in Surgical Anatomy of the Face at the University of Sao Paulo (USP), Dr. Daniel Simon´s 4-year residency in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery was completed in Sao Paulo from 2001 to 2004. Thereafter, Dr. Simon completed a Fellowship in Belgium for the Department of Oral and Craniomaxillofacial Surgery of the Eeuwfeestkliniek in Antwerp from 2005 to 2007, in which year he received his European DMD (Dental Medicine Degree) and corresponding Master’s Degree from Ghent University (Belgium).

Since then he has centered his specialization on Facial Feminization Surgery, developing new and pioneering techniques in this surgical field, in particular in the area of oral surgery and techniques for jaw and chin recontouring.

He is author and co-author of important medical publications in the field of Facial Feminization Surgery.
