  • Facial Plastic Surgery

Occasionally, we have needs for photographers and interpreters as well (English/Spanish).

What to expect


We work for seven days at a local hospital in Northern Peru (Hospital Belen de Lambayeque).  The first patient is admitted around 7 am and the last operation finishes around 5 or 6pm. Our medical team will consist of 30-35 healthcare professionals from North America and we work in tandem with the staff of our host hospitals in Peru.


Airfare to and from Chiclayo, Peru is the responsibility of the team member. Your food and hotel expenses are subsidized by FACES.  If cost is an issue, partial reimbursement can be negotiated.
Prior to the surgical campaign, we hold a mandatory orientation meeting in Portland. That meeting will take place on a Saturday in January.
Our next Surgical Campaign will take place from Friday, January 24 Friday January 31, 2020.
