Can MTF Transgender Hair Transplantation and Hairline Feminization be Done?

For transgender people, changing their gender to fit their identity is often a delicate and complex process.

Hair is one of the most important issues that help trans women achieve their aesthetic goals, because hair has the most remarkable feature among all the components.

We know that the hormones taken in this process cannot reverse male pattern hair loss or correct the appearance of the hairline.

Emphair Hair Transplantation Center explains the other details of the subject about MTF (male to female) transgender hair transplantation:

“MTF hair transplant is a hair transplant operation designed to help trans women confirm their gender identity and achieve a feminine appearance.

Transgender hair transplantation is a treatment in which the latest hair transplantation techniques are used to correct the appearance of thinning areas on the scalp and achieve a more youthful appearance.

Feminine appearance is closely linked to the hairline, and trans women's hair is one of the biggest aesthetic challenges. In addition, the positive effects of a natural-looking, feminine hairstyle on self-confidence are undeniable.

Male Pattern Hair Loss and Hormones are Important in MTF

For trans women who have completed sex reassignment surgery or are currently undergoing hormone therapy, male pattern hair loss often stops progressing, which can be beneficial for longevity of hair transplant results.

We can perform hair transplantation using techniques such as follicular unit extraction, that is, FUE grafting and bringing the hairline forward.

Although MTF hair transplantation can be very effective, we cannot say that all patients with hair loss are good candidates for the procedure. For this, examination is essential.

A trans woman at any stage of this process should consult a hair transplant center to identify her hair loss concerns and hair transplant goals.

A Lower, Straighter and More Rounded Hairline

In MFT hair transplantation, it is necessary to have expertise and refined aesthetic sensitivity to create results that closely mimic nature.

For example, a lower, straighter and more rounded hairline should be created for a more feminine look. We call this hairline feminization.

The final results of transgender hair transplantation will not be immediately obvious and some patience is required as the hair follicles go through their natural growth cycle.

About three months later, when the follicles finish their resting phase, new hair growth begins. It may take about five months for hair growth to reach a point where it can be evaluated.

Then, after about a year, the full results of the procedure appear. For some patients, PRP injection therapy can help support maximum hair growth and improve the quality of results. “
