Helping you to achieve your aesthetic goal.
While some trans patients might seek to fully transition from a Male-to-Female (MTF) or Female-to-Male (FTM) in all physical aspects, others will elect to simply have feminisation or masculinisation procedures performed to deliver the desired aesthetic attributes. This often entails reshaping or adjusting the hairline, reducing/increasing facial hair, or similar treatments on other parts of the body.
The Knudsen Clinic has significant experience working with trans patients seeking to change their physical appearance. Hair transplant surgery requires an artistic eye and an experienced doctor who can carefully harvest the hair while preserving the blood supply and nerves to maximise yields, transplant the hairs at the perfect angle and direction, and patterns, for the chosen area.
We offer a non-judgemental service, and our goal is to help you create your confident new self.
While a receding hairline, thinning hair, or traditional male pattern hair loss is unwanted by most men, it can be particularly distressing for trans women since it serves as a physical sign of an undesired male phenotype. A receding hairline or a bald spot in the crown may be an issue for trans woman seeking a female appearance.
Hairpieces or wigs can be worn to cover male pattern baldness, but this is not the “solution” most trans women seek. Most trans women want their own, natural, thick hair that can be styled in a way that aligns with their desired gender and personal taste.
The most common procedure we perform on MTF patients is the feminine hairline treatment, which seeks to lower, flatten and round the hairline.
It generally takes 2,000 to 3,000 grafts to achieve the desired look. Results generally take about 60 days after the procedures to become apparent.
FTM patients generally come to us for a variety of reasons, including seeking a hairline that looks more masculine, seeking fuller appearing facial hair, seeking chest hair, or because they are receiving hormone therapy that is causing hair thinning or male pattern baldness.
Hair surgery involves harvesting hair follicles from a donor area, such as the back of the head where hair in generally fullest, and transplanting it to the desired location.
Masculinisation of your hairline will involve changing your high hairline to an M-shape, which has upper corners and a downward bend in the middle. This requires a high degree of artistic skill and experience to achieve the desire appearance and to implant the hair follicles at the correct angles and patterns.
