Trans Gender Hair Transplant Surgery - What To Expect, How Its Done and How Much Will It Cost Me?
For patients identifying as transgender, you may be considering a transgender hair transplant. 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:
As an MtF (Male to Female) patient or non binary transfeminine, you might be considering a feminisation procedure for a masculine hairline.
As an FtM (Female to Male) patient, you might be considering restoring hair where it is thinning in an FtM transition.
At Elite Hair Restoration Ltd, one of the UK's leading hair transplant clinics, our experienced staff are happy to guide you through your journey and answer any and all questions you have.
The distinguishable characteristics between male and female hairlines are an important gender trait, from the shape and position to the flow of hairs.
However, thinning hair in the crown hair and/or a receding hairline can pose many problems especially when transitioning.
So although male pattern baldness is an undesirable trait for most men, it can be severely distressing for non binary transfeminine (MtF) patients as it’s a recognisable side effect of male hormones (DHT)
Nevertheless, the treatments available to removed donor hair from the back and rre-introduce it into the thinning areas can rectify this issue, using either FUT or FUE hair transplant surgery. This can be combined with non-surgical hair loss treatments which can compliment the Surgical outcome and be more accessible for transgender patients to receive treatments to aid in their transitioning process.
In this article, we explore both surgical and non-surgical hair loss treatments for transgender patients to help with their transition. We also outline the differences between male and female hairlines and the cost of an FUT or FUE hair transplant available at Elite Hair Restoration Ltd.
There are several dissimilarities between masculine and feminine hairlines, which include:
The position of the hairline
The shape of the hairline
The flow of hairs
The ageing pattern of the hairline
The position of a feminine hairline is typically located further forward than of the masculine counterpart, whereas a masculine hairline is further back, which gives the appearance of a more prominent forehead.
As males age and the hairline recedes, this becomes more pronounced. Whereas a receding hairline due to old age is not something that women usually experience, though a woman can suffer from hair loss this is more sporadic as it doesn’t tend to target one specific area.
The shape of a hairline also differs as males typically recede around the temples, accentuating an “M” shape pattern around the hairline.
However, females have an oval-shaped hairline. Furthermore, the direction in which a masculine hairline flows can be different to a feminine hair line shape.
The cost of an FUT or FUE hair transplant varies from patient to patient as it depends on the number of grafts a patient will need, corresponding to the amount of hair they have lost.
At Elite Hair Restoration Ltd we charge £2 per graft for FUT and £3 Per Graft with FUE Hair Transplant Surgery, with the price of any hair transplant procedure starting at £2,500. The Pricelist Is Available Online here: https://www.elitehairrestoration.co.uk/pricing/
We recommend a Video Consultation to assess your Hair Loss to get a better understanding of how many grafts you may need. This assessment considers a patients’ age, gender assigned at birth, hair colour, and hair type to generate an accurate number of grafts you will need to achieve your aesthetic goals.
