If you have decided to pursue transgender surgery, you are embarking on a personal journey that can include several phases. There is no “right” or “wrong” way to physically transition. Quite often, patients find hair line surgery to be one of the most valuable parts of their feminizing transition. Having a more feminine hair line can impact ones quality of life immensely as their new appearance better reflects their inner identity. Due to the fact that a large forehead is a very masculine trait, Hairline Lowering Surgery is commonly sought out to feminize the male face.
Follicular unit hair restoration involves transferring hair follicles from the more permanent areas at the back and sides of the scalp to areas that are bald or thinning. This generally involves the frontal hairline, midscalp, temples and crown. Hair transplantation can be done as part of the gender affirming process for transitioning individuals from male to female who are experiencing hair loss or hair thinning. Hairs transplanted are generally permanent and provide a long term solution to pattern baldness.
Hairline Lowering can be combined with any Facial Feminization Surgery. To perform this procedure our patients will be put under general anaesthesia while an irregular incision is made between the existing anterior hairline and the forehead. The hair-bearing scalp is then lifted and moved forward as desired by the patient. Hairline Lowering Surgery alone can help feminize the face as it reshapes and reduces the height of the forehead. Transgender women often feel more feminine and attractive after they have reduced the size of their forehead.
At Follicle HT our surgeons are fully trained facial plastic surgeons and can offer more than just hair transplantation. With years of experience, we offer a complete feminization campaign including brow reduction, brow lift, jaw reduction, chin implants, blepharoplasty, laryngeal shave and cheek implants. During a consultation we can discuss gender affirming surgeries and recommend a transformation timeline that is tailored to you based on the surgeries and recovery time required.
For our transgender patients, the transition can evoke an enormous sense of relief and empowerment as they make changes to their physical self to better match their gender identity. For our male to female transitioning patients hair line and facial surgery can achieve a more desired, feminine appearance that creates confidence and a heightened sense of well-being. Transitioning patients also find they are better recognized and identified by others as a female when their physical attributes look more female.
