About FTM Top Surgery
An FTM (female to male) top surgery, also referred to as male chest contouring, is an ideal procedure for patients wishing to eliminate the appearance of their female breasts and present a more masculine, toned chest area. Atlanta, GA plastic surgeon Dr. Fara Movagharnia at the Center for Cosmetic & Reconstructive Surgery can surgically remove breast tissue and fat from the breasts as well as tighten and reshape the pectoral muscles for a toned, natural look. In some cases, skin excision may be necessary as well if you have larger breasts or less skin elasticity. A pectoral implant may also be desired to give the appearance of fully developed muscles and an appealing shape in the upper body. If you're considering this transformational procedure, then we encourage you to contact our office today to learn more about how we can help you achieve your desired results.

"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

The are many surgical techniques that can be used in FTM top surgery, and our plastic surgeon will typically choose based on the starting size of the chest and your skin elasticity. All techniques preserve the patient’s natural nipple and areola, but the placement is usually changed to fit the new contour. Common subcutaneous mastectomy techniques include:
- Buttonhole Technique
- Double Incision
- Inverted T/T-Anchor
- Minimal Scar
Dr. Movagharnia will explain each technique in detail during the consultation and will ensure the best method is chosen to address your needs.
What to expect
FTM top surgery is generally performed as an outpatient procedure with the patient under general anesthesia at an accredited surgical facility. After the surgery, you will be put in a compression vest that you should wear for at least 3 – 4 weeks to minimize bruising and swelling. Our plastic surgeon will go over any specific recovery instructions and schedule follow-up appointments to check your healing. Dr. Movagharnia can also offer information on scar care management to help minimize the appearance of surgical scars.
