MTF and FTM Transgender Hair Transplant Options By Bernard Arocha, MD on January 12, 2017


At Arocha Hair Restoration, every hair transplant surgery is custom-tailored to meet the needs of the individual patient. Dr. Arocha has a thorough understanding of pattern baldness and hair transplant techniques, as well as an understanding of the challenges many transgender patients face regarding hair loss and facial hair growth. During the consultation process, he listens closely to each patient’s unique concerns and expectations in order to design a treatment plan that can achieve their goals. Many of our male-to-female (MTF) transgender patients have a receding hairline, thinning hair, or balding at the crown of the head. With hair transplant surgery, patients can achieve a fuller head of hair and a hairline that displays typically feminine characteristics (a lower, more rounded, and flatter hairline). Our female-to-male (FTM) transgender patients often desire a full, dark beard and can frequently benefit from facial hair transplant surgery even if they are simultaneously engaged in hormone replacement therapy. This procedure can also be used to enhance the prominence of sideburns for a more masculine aesthetic.

Our goal is to help transgender men and women more fully express their gender identity in order to feel confident and comfortable in their appearances. To learn more about how hair transplant techniques can benefit transgender patients, or to schedule a consultation with our board-certified hair loss surgeon, please feel free to contact a member of our friendly and supportive staff today.
