MTF Transgender Hair Transplants & Feminization of the Hairline
Transitioning your appearance to match your gender identity is often a delicate and complex process. At our practice, plastic surgeon Carrie Houssock, MD, FACS takes pride in helping transwomen achieve their aesthetic goals through highly customized surgical procedures. One of the most important aesthetic components for any woman is often the appearance of her hair. Unfortunately, treatment with female hormones cannot reverse hair loss or revise the appearance of the hairline; however, with artfully-performed hair transplant surgery, thicker hair coverage and a more feminine hairline can be possible. Regardless of your ethnicity or hair type, if you are a good candidate for treatment, Dr. Houssock has the experience and technical skill to create beautiful, natural-looking results that suit your desired style and appearance.
We are committed to providing compassionate medical expertise to all, and we welcome transwomen to our practice. In addition to MTF hair transplants, we also offer MTF top surgery and other customized procedures for the face and body that are designed to help transwomen achieve a look that affirms their gender identity.

What Are MTF Transgender Hair Transplants?
Male-to-female (MTF) hair transplant surgery, also referred to as transgender hair restoration, is a procedure that utilizes state-of-the-art hair transplantation techniques to correct the appearance of thinning areas on the scalp and create a more youthful, feminine-looking hairline. Dr. Houssock has expertise in the aesthetic challenges transwomen face when it comes to their hair, as well as a deep understanding of the positive impact a natural-looking, feminine hairstyle can have on self-esteem and self-confidence. Our surgeon offers the full range of hair transplant techniques in order to deliver the highest-quality results for patients of all hair types and styles.
While MTF hair transplants can be very effective, it is important to understand that not all patients with hair loss are good candidates for the procedure. Dr. Houssock must first perform an examination of your scalp and discuss your medical history before determining whether you are well-suited for hair transplant surgery. If you are a transwoman at any stage of your transition, we encourage you to schedule a hair transplant consultation to discuss your hair loss concerns and hair restoration goals with our skilled surgeon. If you are a good candidate for any of our procedures, your surgeon will devise a highly individualized treatment plan that’s custom-tailored to suit your needs. Your surgical plan may even include techniques that can help conceal visible scarring for an optimal final outcome. Dr. Houssock also has expertise in performing corrective hair transplants for patients who are unsatisfied by the results they achieved from a different surgeon.
