What is transgender Hair Transplant?

Hair transplant for transgender involves shaping the hairline to look like a female hairline. It helps those who want to transition from one gender to another achieve the best looks that complement their preferred gender. Any person who wants to transition from a male to a female (MTF) can benefit from the advanced technique of hairline restructuring called the FUE hair transplant. Even those who want to reduce the size of their foreheads can also get hair transplant surgery. What seems to be a life-changing process to many who are undergoing gender transition is hair transplant surgery. Regardless of whether you are continuing your journey or thought of having this surgery, you can use this procedure to create your new identity. 

Dr. John Kahen believes the hair transplant procedure will help you change your perception of life. He has a team of experts who are highly skilled in hair treatment techniques at Palm Desert hair restoration. They combine their efforts to ensure that they come up with a treatment plan that will personalize your look like a transgender.

Male to Female
(M2F) Hair Transplant

Many people usually want to understand what an MTF transgender hair restoration is. There is a huge difference between the male and female hairline. That is why many male to female transgender persons are seeking to have the MTF hairline transplant nowadays. Changing the hairline poses a challenge of getting the best results because the best realistic result has to be achieved. 

The main reason why an MTF transgender patient wants to have a hairline change surgery is to achieve a more realistic feminine look with thick healthy hair. Using the FUT or FUE hair transplant surgery makes it easier to get the best results from the MTF hair transplant surgery. The procedure also helps to increase hair density and lower the hairline so that the person will achieve a more feminine look. Unwanted reactions may occur after the MTF hair transplant procedure due to the level of estrogen hormones. 

The person is likely to suffer from male pattern baldness due to DHT. 

Some of the patients who want to have the MTF hair transplant may already have the male pattern baldness disorder before the surgery. Such a situation will leave that person with thin regions on the scalp and, in is the worst-case scenario, a receding hairline. Thanks to the FUE hair transplant surgery, you can get rid of the receding hairline. This will allow the person to achieve that feminine look. After the hair transplant procedure, the male pattern baldness will lead to an M-shaped hairline.

After the procedure, the patient should avoid rinsing or styling the hair since the surgery area has not healed properly, and implanted hair may fall out. The area needs to remain dry for some time to allow it to heal properly. The bandage should not be removed for a period of two days. You should resume your normal life activities after three days. However, you can still take a few days off work until you fully recover.

Once you have had the surgery and three days have passed, you can remove the dressing and gently rinse your head. While doing this, avoid standing under the shower jet. Rather than doing that, you can use a piece of cloth to apply shampoo to the treated area. The next thing that you need to do is dry your hair gently, using a soft towel. You should also avoid heavy exercise immediately after the procedure. You need to give your body time to recover. This will also prevent bleeding. You may develop scabs during the recovery. However, this should not bother you because they will resolve within a week.

If you like, you can dye your hair once two months have passed after the hair transplant procedure.

It will take some time before reasonable or visible results show after undergoing a transgender hair transplant. Therefore, you need to keep patience. The hair follicle needs to reach the growth phase in the hair growth cycle after the resting stage. This will take about three months after the treatment. In about five months, new hair will start to grow in the implanted area. The full results of your hair will be visible after a year. Dr. John Kahen will explain to you if extra sessions are required to achieve the best results. Other patients may also require SmartPRP® for hair loss in order to get the best results. You may also require an additional procedure to hide the scar if it occurred after the hair transplant procedure. They say a picture is allure a thousand words. The same goes for hair restoration. To know whether you will get the results that you desire, ask the surgeon to show you the before and after photos of the previous transgender hair transplant procedures done. Once you see these photos, you can decide whether you want to undergo the procedure.

If you are eager to wash or rinse your hair after surgery, then you need to do is wait for a while. Wetting the surgery area too early may cause issues. You should wait for a few weeks and use little shampoo only. You can return to your normal routine once the three days are over. You should not comb or brush your newly implanted grafts until three weeks are over. Ask your doctor when it is appropriate to start wearing a hat or a pullover shirt. You should avoid vigorous exercises for at least seven days. Hair will normally fall off after some time. Therefore, this should not bother you as it is part of the recovery and the healing process. For about a month, you may not like the results, but eventually, you will love the results after 12 months.
