This clinic and my experience here was incredible. I was so impressed with the facilities. The clinic is owned by the surgeon Dr. Ivan Manero, with the consultation, operating rooms and recovery rooms all in one beautiful building.
I had facial feminisation surgery (brow bossing, hairline lowering, rhinoplasty, septoplasty), and the treatment I received was first class, i was made to feel like a princess the whole time.
Dr. Manero and Dr. Herrera were very knowledgeable, and the staff very friendly. As a non-Spanish speaker i was made to feel welcome, and lots of the staff understand English. Its normal to feel a bit anxious about travelling to a different country for surgery, but i was given daily, 24 hour support from the clinic, i couldn't have asked for more. They did everything they could to help me.
I underwent approximately 8 hours of surgery, and it can be very disorienting to wake up, and not be able to see or breathe through my nose. It was really nice to have my sister nearby when i woke up. You have to be patient with facial feminisation surgery, the results won't truly be seen for 6 months, in which time I'm going to avoid sugar, alcohol and any other inflammatory food. The nurses responded so quickly to any issue i had with pain, and the food was excellant.
For personal reasons i had to travel to Spain earlier than planned, and the patient co-ordinator Aida Masdeu was so quick to react and found me accomodation the same day. It's this level of dedication that really impressed me, and reassured me.
We also shot an interview, which i was so happy to do. I had my make up applied professionally and was given the opportunity to talk about my favourite subject, which is myself! We spoke about what i expected from the surgery and my experiences of Ivan Manero Clinic. It was a lot of fun to shoot the video, im looking forward to the final cut.
Facial feminisation surgery is very important to get right, and they understood my concerns and told me in detail what I should expect from the results. My experience in Barcelona was amazing, and I'm already looking to my follow up consultation in 6 months time. I actually cried out of happiness when i left the clinic, all the nurses came out to say goodbye, i was made to feel valued and appreciated. I'm so glad i chose to come to this clinic
