about mtf body contouring
One of the key differences of the female body as opposed to the male figure is more volume in the lower body, specifically around the hips and buttocks. Men tend to naturally have a more narrow waist and hip area, making it necessary for a male to female (MTF) body contouring procedure to be performed to aid in the transition process. This surgery is administered by Atlanta, GA plastic surgeon Dr. Fara Movagharnia and typically involves either a fat transfer method or surgical implants made of silicone or saline. The goal is to produce a natural, aesthetically pleasing result that is proportional to your overall body. Dr. Movagharnia can meet with you at the Center for Cosmetic & Reconstructive Surgery to discuss the different options and which would be best suited for your body type and end goals. Call our office today to schedule a consultation and learn more about MTF body contouring.
"A wonderful surgeon and person! - I am so glad that I found Dr Movagharnia! I rarely write reviews, but I had to do this one. The decision to go under the knife can be an extremely scary and difficult one. I want to share that I have had a wonderful, life-changing experience with Dr Movagharnia. I went to him for help with a botched surgery outcome at the hands of another well-known Atlanta surgeon. My experience with him has been nothing short of redeeming and therapeutic. Dr Movagharnia is not only a skilled surgeon, but a genuinely caring, gentle, and hard-working person. During my consultation and preparatory appointments, Dr Movagharnia went to great lengths to ensure that he understood what I hoped for, and that I understood what my options were and what he could do. He shared his expertise honestly so that I could make informed decisions. He went over my chosen procedures in detail, letting me in on every decision that I had previously been excluded from. I’m happy with the transformation that is happening for me, and to know that this was done by Dr Movagharnia! He has truly partnered with me throughout this process. My recovery from the surgery was so much easier than I anticipated, and from experience, I know to attribute this to his gentle precision in the operating room. I was off my pain medication in one week. His sutures were actually beautiful. He followed up to make sure I was doing well after surgery, even over the weekend and after hours. The people working in the office are such friendly, kind people too! Judy responds to every email or call within one day. I feel cared for, and went under anesthesia knowing I was in good hands. I’ve been treated with such kind attention and am so appreciative. Though I’m still healing and my final results will not be evident for another 2-3 months, I’m already amazed and excited! Dr Movagharnia takes pride in his artistry and his ethic, loves what he does, and empowers his patients before and after surgery with information, with proper preparation, and with post-surgery exercises to facilitate healing and best result. He wants his patients to feel proud and be happy and healthy. He has been here for me every step of the way and sincerely wants to make sure we achieve the best possible result. I have had every question or concern immediately addressed. It is critical to be in the care of someone skilled and compassionate. I recommend Dr Movagharnia. He is exactly the kind of doctor I want my family and friends to see."- S.A. / RealSelf / Dec 06, 2019

For body contouring using fat transfer, Dr. Movagharnia will first use liposuction techniques to remove fat from the body (typically in the abdomen and arms), which will be filtered and purified. Once the fat is prepared, he will carefully inject the fat into the hips and/or buttocks to achieve your desired fullness and projection. Our surgeon will typically overfill the area to account for the fat that will be reabsorbed by the body during recovery. For body contouring with silicone implants, our plastic surgeon will choose silicone implants that will meet your goals and securely place them in the hips and/or buttocks for the most natural appearance. Body contouring surgery, whether our surgeon is using a fat transfer or implants, is usually performed with the patient under general anesthesia as an outpatient surgery in an accredited surgical facility.
what to expect
After the surgery, the treated areas will be bandaged and put into compression garments to encourage blood flow. You are usually able to return home after the procedure to recover on your own with aftercare instructions and tips from Dr. Movagharnia and the rest of our staff. You should schedule and attend any recommended follow-up appointments so our plastic surgeon can assess your healing progress and results. The results from a body contouring procedure should be long lasting. However, weight fluctuation and other factors can alter your appearance.
