Can a hair transplant help with transgender transitioning

By Alex

Hair loss is something that will affect both men and women at some point in their life, and it is something many of us spend a lot of time worrying about. You might wonder when it will happen and how much it might affect you.

The thought of hair loss is an issue for many different people, including those who are transitioning into the opposite sex.  In the case of male to female transitioning hair loss can make the process more difficult.

Hair transplantation and gender transitioning

Females tend to have a much softer and lower hairline than men, and with male pattern baldness affecting 70% of the male population it can make achieving a feminine hairline difficult. Hair restoration procedures such as FUE hair transplantation can be used to build upon and create a different hairline, which, can help those in the transitioning process.

A hair transplant is a treatment used for those suffering from hair loss, the treatment works by transplanting hair from one area of the scalp to a thinning area of the scalp. The treatment is often used to help with the appearance of a receding hairline. Our doctors are able to create a natural and realistic looking hair transplant, whilst ensuring the result of the hair looks fuller and natural.

As hair transplants are often used to build upon a receding hairline to bring it back and give you a youthful appearance it can also help change the appearance of a hairline – something that can help those transitioning from male to female.

As the female hairline tends to be much lower down and softer than the male hairline, our doctors use the revolutionary FUE procedure to build a more feminine hairline. Once the hair is transplanted it will begin to grow, just like your normal hair. After 6-12 months, you’ll start to notice the results and see a more feminine hairline.
