For Male to Female Transgender Patients
The goal of hair transplantation for the MTF patient is to achieve a natural, smoother, more feminine look. This usually involves filling in any areas of male-pattern baldness, while at the same time, creating a female hairline.
One of the most common hair restoration procedures to give a more female appearance involves a change to the hairline. A feminine hairline is lower, flatter, and rounder than its male counterpart.
Wearing a wig or hairpiece can get old and can be embarrassing. With hair restoration, we can cover bald areas with thicker, naturally growing hair.
Some cosmetic procedures can leave surgical scarring that needs to be covered up with hair restoration. This is often necessary as a result of forehead lowering procedures where hairline scarring is evident.
Two other distinguishing facial characteristics signifying gender are the eyebrows and eyelashes. Dr. Turowski and his team are expert in enhancing the proper gender appearance with eyebrow transplantation and eyelash implants.
For Female to Male Transgender Patients
Female to Male (FTM) transgender hair restoration can involve various different procedures to add masculinity to the head, face, and body. Dr. Turowski helps FTM transgender patients by creating a perfect pattern of natural hair growth to enhance the appearance of masculinity.
An undeniable characteristic of the male is chest hair. With hair transplantation and restoration procedures, the FTM patient can have as much or as little chest hair as they desire.
Many FTM patients are looking to add masculinity to their face with a beard, mustache, or sideburns.
The testosterone taken as part of the transgender process can create bald spots or thinning hair. With transgender hair restoration procedures these can be filled in to give a full, natural, head of hair.
