Hairline Feminization for Trans Women


Transgendered hair transplant surgery is a vital part of gender-affirming surgeries. The upper portion of the face is a common cause of gender dysphoria for transwomen. We’ve discussed before how brow bone reduction is a common treatment for trans women, but another very important aspect of gender-affirming surgery is a hairline transplant.

When proceeding with hair transplant surgery, a feminine natural appearance is a goal. For the transplant to appear natural, approach and technique are very important.

What to Look For?

Creating the ideal feminine hairline requires a lot of expertise and knowledge. Some things Dr. Jumaily, our facial feminization expert, will examine are:

Shape – A feminine hairline has an upside-down U appearance, and is typically a bit softer and more round than a masculine hairline.

Position –  Feminine hairlines are typically found closer to the front of the skull/closer to the forehead. As opposed to a masculine hairline which is further back, making the forehead appear larger.

Hair Growth Orientation – Feminine hair typically grows from the hairline to the back of the neck, whereas a masculine hair growth pattern grows from the crown area to the hairline.

How Does a Hair Transplant Work?

A hair transplant is performed by taking hair from an area of high density and implanting it into the treatment area with lower density. With hairline feminization, however, a higher level of expertise is required to achieve a natural-looking feminine hairline. While the restoration of the hairline is the ultimate goal, the other most important goal is to give the hairline a more feminine appearance
