The Male to Female Transgender Hair Transplant requires a different set or procedures and techniques than female to male transgender hair transplantation. There are differences in the hairline of men and women and often male pattern baldness needs to be addressed. In previous years the Male to Female (MTF) Transgender Transplant had to be performed using a long incision across the scalp that could be used to pull the hairline down, but this technique was never ideal. This female hairline lowering technique doesn’t account for the differences that are present in the mail hairline which cannot be achieved simply by lowering the hairline.

The hair of the outer temple area is a stable of femininity and is not created when the hairline is simply lowered. Additionally, men’s hairline hair typically grow in the opposite direction as women’s. For all these reasons, it is important to utilize new techniques available to achieve the best and most natural looking results possible for our Male to Female Transgender Hair Transplant patients.
