Thinking about a Transgender Hair Transplant?

Hair transplant corrective surgery is a popular procedure amongst the transgender community as it can help alter the appearance of your hairline, as well as add volume and thickness to areas that are thinning. After reviewing the patient’s physical characteristics and sex at time of surgery, the surgeon will decide which transgender hair transplant technique to use. Because male and female hair patterns are different, careful consideration should be given to how well a particular technique will work in the individual’s case. FUE hair transplant, FUT (strip) hair transplant, and total hair restoration surgery are all used in transgender hair restoration to aid in their gender reassignment. The type of procedure used will depend on the sex of the patient before they transitioned and the aesthetic goals of the individual.

The noticeable characteristics between male and female hairlines are an essential gender trait. From the shape and position to the flow of hairs, the distiguishable hairline patterns are an imperative marker for the sex of an individual. However, crown hair loss and receding hairlines pose many problems, especially when transitioning from male to female. So although male pattern baldness is an unfortunate trait for most men, it can be severely distressing for MtF patients as it’s a recognizable side effect of male hormones.

Hair transplant surgery can be carried out to thicken existing hair or restore hair where it has been lost and this can be an important part of the transitioning process. There are many different instances for when one may consider a transgender hair transplant. In general, there are 2 instances for when patients reach out for a hair transplant:

  • MtF (Male to Female) – those transitioning from Male to Female may consider hairline feminization for a masculine hairline.
  • FtM (Female to Male) – those transitioning from Female to Male may consider restoring hair where it’s thinning out.

Identifying the difference between female and male hairlines is a crucial part of transgender hair transplant procedures. Understanding these distinctions will help create natural-looking results for patients.

There are several differences between male and female hairlines, which include:

The position of a female hairline is typically located further forward whereas males typically recede around the temples, accentuating an “M” shape pattern around the hairline. Furthermore, the direction in which a male’s hairline flows can be different to a woman’s.

FIND YOUR NEAREST CLINIC

If you are interested in a Transgender hair transplant, your first step is going to be scheduling an initial consultation with a hair specialist. Our services are free of charge and designed to ensure that our clients are connected with the physician who best meets the patients’ medical needs. A Transgender hair transplant in Maryland, Washington DC, or Virginia is an outpatient procedure, but it is still a surgical one and should be handled by a team that you trust.

Female to Male Hair Transplant (FtM)

If you are transitioning from female to male and taking testosterone, you may experience pattern baldness (also referred to as androgenic alopecia). This process can be accelerated by the conversion of testosterone into dihydrotestosterone (DHT), which is thought to be one of the key factors in pattern baldness. DHT can cause miniaturization of your follicles and may lead to their eventual shedding.

Male to Female Hair Transplant (MtF)

A male-to-female hair transplant is more demanding than a female-to-male procedure, as the former will likely experience frontal or crown hair loss. However, if the patient is taking estrogen and experiencing hair loss around the temples, a FUE transplant may be an option to correct the hairline and create a more feminine look.

Non Surgical Hair Loss Treatments or Transgender Patients

Before electing to undergo a transition hair transplant surgery, we suggest that you explore non-surgical options for treating your hair loss. While it is true that some medication can be used to reverse hair loss, this is not always the case with transgender patients. The effectiveness of these treatments depends on what stage of hair loss you are currently experiencing. For example, minoxidil is a stimulant treatment used to increase the vitality of hairs that generate thickness. However, if you are experiencing severe hair loss then this treatment might not be for you; you should discuss this with one of our surgeons to determine whether it will be effective in your case.
