CURRENT CONCEPTS IN GENDER AFFIRMING SURGERY FOR WOMEN IN TRANSITION

 

training FACIALTEAM 2020

 

DESCRIPTION

Transgender patients typically do not identify with the gender assigned at birth. Both the genital sex, as well as the secondary sex characteristics that develop during puberty, lead to clinically significant psychological distress, also known as gender dysphoria. A complex and extended transition period is usually required that involves numerous diagnostic processes, medical-surgical treatments and extensive psychological care. All of this is aimed at allowing patients to achieve the physical expression of the gender with which they identify, averting severe psychological conflicts, improving self-esteem and quality of life, and fostering the patient’s successful integration into the workplace, family and society.

As one of the fastest growing areas within plastic surgery, dissemination of education in gender surgery is essential to improving patient outcomes and spurring on new innovations. For this reason, FACIALTEAM TRAINING & EDUCATION proudly presents the second annual workshop titled Current Concepts in Gender Affirming Surgery for Women in Transition. This workshop features internationally recognized speakers offering an overview of the state-of-the-art in different fields. Prof. Dr. Stanislas Monstrey, from the University of Ghent, together with Dr. Iván Mañero, from IM Clinic, present the latest techniques in penile inversion vaginoplasty. Dr. Christopher Inglefield, from the London Bridge Plastic Surgery private center, shares his experience in facial feminization surgical techniques, along with Dr. Luis Capitán, Dr. Raúl J. Bellinga and Dr. Daniel Simon from the FACIALTEAM.

The workshop has been accredited by WPATH, so attendees may obtain GEI continuing education credits.
