Transgender Hair Transplantation Overview
Transgender hair transplantation is performed by considering gender change of a person. It is a procedure that consists of advanced hair transplant techniques such as FUE and DHI.
- The focus is to create a more feminine hairline for those who have transitioned from male to female. Thanks to hair transplantation, gender dysphoria, which is associated with high foreheads and hairline, is reduced.
- Hair is provided to look more masculine for those who transitioned from female to male. Hairline can be reconstructed according to this.
Transgender Hair Transplantation: From Male to Female
There are possible hormonal changes when the transition from male to female exists. These changes may cause negative effects of male type hair loss to disappear. Depending on the change in estrogen level, negative effects of DHT on hair may disappear.
People who transitioned from male to female may have experienced hair loss or hair thinning when they were men or their hairline might be receded. These masculine signs can be completely removed with transgender hair transplantation. Hairline is given a more feminine look. More feminine curves are created for your hair. Briefly, hair transplantation makes your hair look more feminine.
Transgender Hair Transplantation: From Woman to Man
With the transition from female to male, testosterone level may increase while estrogen level decreases. In such a case, male-type hair loss may occur. Depending on changes in hormone levels, DHT is connected to hair follicles and thus, hair is negatively affected. In the end, hair loss may occur. Unfortunately, there is no treatment for male-type hair loss. Some medications can delay the process, but after some time the result will be baldness. In such a situation, the most permanent solution will be hair transplantation.
Except for hair transplantation, similar procedures can be used for beard and mustache formation. Transplantation can also be done for non-uniform beards, mustaches and eyebrows. Thus, it emerges more masculine appearance.
