FACIAL FEMINISATION SURGERY OF TRANS MALE
In order to be a woman one should or would like to look like a woman. Graceful hair is a part and parcel of a good looking woman. So many Trans men prefer to have good lady-like hair. This also reduces social anxiety of the person in public a it increases the acceptance of the society. Hence it decreases social dysphoria.
It may sound irresistible but it comes with its own unique challenges.
Male to female (MTF) transgender hair restoration surgery focuses on differences in hairlines in both genders as well as reducing or eliminating the effects of male pattern baldness.
HAIR TRANSPLANT TEHNIQUES:
Previously, hair restoration for many MTF transgender women was performed by making a long incision or cut across the scalp on the head to pull the hairline downward.
The drawbacks of this method are:
- First, if a male hairline is surgically cut with a long incision the currently occuring male hair loss due to male pattern baldness will expose the scar over a period of time. This can only be covered with proper hair transplantation.
- Second, cutting a long incision to advance the hairline is reasonable and the results are good in the central portion of the scalp but it cannot reproduce the shape of the outer temple area, which is a typical feature of feminine beauty.
- Finally, hairs in male hairline and female hairline flow in opposite direction.
So, a corrective hair transplant surgery must be performed to build a more feminine hairline over the previous surgery area in order to attain optimal results that are much more feminine, and ultimately more attractive in appearance.
Corrective Hair Transplant Surgery
In this method the surgeon identifies the loopholes in the transplant surgery prior to the hair transplant procedure. This will help him or her determine which procedure to follow for the best possible outcome.
Given below are a brief summary of the various aspects of hair transplant which are involved in corrective hair transplant surgery:
- Hairline Design– designing a natural-looking hairline that fits each patient’s stage of hair loss, age, gender, ethnicity, head shape and facial features.
- Harvesting Donor Hair– Donor hair is carefully harvested, while protecting blood supply and neural endings and maximizing harvest yield.
- Hair Graft Preparation– Hair grafts are meticulously dissected and prepared for transplant by the same dedicated team that is involved in the entire procedure, resulting in fewer traumas and more consistency.
- Choosing Recipient Sites– Recipient sites, to which the donor hair will be attached are chosen with perfect angles, direction, pattern to create the most natural results.
- Hair Graft Placement– Accurately placing all hair grafts so they don’t go too deep or stay too high and to prevent reactions or physical discomfort upon placement.
