Hair Transplants as a Part of Gender Reassignment Surgery

Bernardino Arocha, M.D., FISHRS, and his staff make it their goal to provide a respectful environment that welcomes patients from all walks of life, including those undergoing gender reassignment. At Arocha Hair Restoration and Transplant Center, Dr. Arocha regularly works with transgender patients to help them fully express their true gender identity through hair transplant procedures.

If you are interested in undergoing hair transplantation surgery to further your gender reassignment, then you understand how important the patient-client relationship is. Dr. Arocha will work with you to help actualize your aesthetic goals and answer any questions you may have about gender reassignment hair transplants.

Male-to-Female Transgender Patients

If you are seeking to redefine your look with a more feminine aesthetic, then you know that perfecting the right hairstyle can be a challenge. Male-to-female transgender individuals are unfortunately susceptible to the wide-reaching effects of male pattern baldness, an issue that can noticeably affect gender reassignment.

If you are frustrated by your thinning hair and would like to transition it into a more feminine look, Dr. Arocha provides advanced hair transplant procedures to fill in thinning crowns, correct bald spots and rebuild hairlines into a lower, flatter and rounder shape, more in line with a natural female hairstyle. Wigs can be a great, albeit temporary solution for MTF gender reassignment, but hair transplants can provide an even more effective and long-term result for transgender patients seeking a total transformation.

Female-to-Male Transgender Patients

For female-to-male transgender patients wishing to develop a more masculine look, Dr. Arocha offers facial hair transplants to create fuller, more well-defined beards, mustaches and sideburns. Hormone replacement therapy can have success in increasing facial hair growth but may not always provide a thick and full beard.

Facial hair transplants work the same as regular hair transplants by harvesting hair from donor sites along the sides and back of the scalps for transplant in the targeted areas. Dr. Arocha’s artistic skill comes into play during beard transplants, making sure to choose hair grafts that will blend in effortlessly and naturally with surrounding facial hair growth. Once transplanted, facial hair grafts can be shaved, trimmed and styled just like normal facial hair.

Whether you are an MTF or FTM transgender patient, Dr. Arocha provides options to complete your gender reassignment. Hair transplants have advanced greatly in recent decades and can provide satisfying results with minimal scarring and less downtime.
