about facial feminization
Facial feminization surgery (FFS) performed at the Center for Cosmetic & Reconstructive Surgery in Atlanta, GA can be an important step in completing the male to female transition. A procedure like this under the skilled hands of our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Fara Movagharnia, can help soften out sharp facial features, smooth out the contours of the face, and help present an overall more feminine, delicate appearance for a natural result. Some of the procedures incorporated in facial feminization at our practice include:
- Adam’s Apple Reduction (Tracheal Shave)
- Brow Lift
- Cheek Augmentation
- Lip Lift and Reshaping

- 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.

Smoother, Softer Features
Achieving softer, smoother facial features can often times be one of the most important steps in achieving a more overall feminine appearance. Male facial features tend to be sharper and more defined, contributing to a more masculine look. However, through facial feminization surgery at our Atlanta, GA office, we can help present you with the feminine look you're striving for. Call our office today to set up a consultation with Dr. Movagharnia so he can create your custom treatment plan.
