"68 year old woman, overweight and tired of being miserable - I am a 68 year old woman, over weight and tired of being miserable. I had suffered with large breast since middle school; my breast just kept getting larger and my back and neck always hurt. I was in a car accident in 2011, broke my back, neck, collar bone, ripped Rotator cuff and concussion. I went through many surgeries plus procedures to help the swelling in my neck. Needless to say but I put on weight and my breasts were getting bigger and bigger. I made up my mind to have a breast reduction and help with the migraines and back/neck pain. Dr Fara is wonderful, he fully explained the procedure and what he can do for me. I am ecstatic over my results. I love my new breast and I do mean love! Very happy. Dr. Fara is kind and has a great bedside manner too. Called everyday after the surgery to make sure I was good. I listened to him before the surgery and started my high protein diet and I was doing exactly as he needed for me to be a success. Day of surgery, his staff and nurses were fantastic. I am 5 weeks out and I feel great, the itching is controllable, the incisions are healing nicely. I have itty-bitty titties now. Yeah, Dr. Fara, you are a rock star. I saw the pictures of before the surgery and I almost cried. Thank you, thank you, thank you Dr. Fara."- S. / RealSelf / Mar 09, 2023

"From my very first consultation, I knew that I was in the best hands - I just wanted to take this time out to express how overwhelmingly happy I am with my Tummy Tuck results. The process of finding Dr. Movagharnia Fara who is a BOARD CERTIFIED PLASTIC SURGEON with over 20 plus years of experience was very easy. I was referred to him by my best friend who has had a few procedures with Dr. Fara, and her resluts and overall experience were AMAZING! From my very first consultation, I knew that I was in the best hands. I expressed to Dr. Fara how unhappy I had been for years with the excess skin and fat on my stomach. He assessed my concerns and assured me that he would be able to give me a flatter tummy. He was very thorough with the details of the surgery and was able to answer every question and concerned that I had with very honest responses. I knew immediately after my consultation that this was the Dr. I wanted to move forward with. He gave me very precise instructions to prepare for my Tummytuck and 2 months later on November 21, 2022, my life changed forever. I am now 4 weeks post-op and I am so HAPPY with my results. I feel very blessed that I chose Dr. Fara and I look forward to the positive progression that I will have through out my healing process. Thank You Dr, FARA!!!! You are the ABSOLUTE BEST PLASTIC SURGEON EVER.......God Bless you, and your AMAZING STAFF, Mrs. JUDY and Mrs. FARA.Sincerely,Lynese Doukoure"- A. / RealSelf / Dec 23, 2022

- Adam’s apple reduction: also known as a tracheal shave, our plastic surgeon carefully removes thyroid cartilage from the neck to reduce or eliminate the Adam’s apple
- Cheek augmentation: the mid-face can be made fuller with implants or a fat transfer that increases the projection of the cheeks. A cheek reduction can improve cheeks that are too wide or strong.
- Lip lift and reshaping: to adjust the size and proportion of the upper and lower lips to appear more feminine, the upper lip is reduced and moved higher while the fullness of the lower lip is increased with an implant or fat transfer
- Rhinoplasty: to make a more feminine nose, the length, width, and projection are reduced to best fit the proportions of the patient’s face
Facial feminization surgery can be performed under general or local anesthesia, depending on the procedures that are included in the patient’s plan. Our plastic surgeon will perform the chosen procedures at a fully accredited surgical facility using minimal incisions in less visible locations to improve the final result.
What to expect
You will be able to go home after your surgery. Before you go home, Dr. Movagharnia will schedule a follow-up appointment and go over care and recovery instructions, including when you can return to work and exercise. To improve healing after facial surgery, you should hold ice packs to your face for a few minutes several times each day. You are encouraged to keep your head elevated as much as possible.
