Harley Street ht clinics transgender before and after hairline

At Harley Street Hair Transplant Clinics, we can empathise with the troubles posed by your transition. As such, we can offer hair restoration surgery to help you with your journey. Our procedures are designed to help reshape and redesign your hairline to offer a more masculine or feminine look.

What is Transgender hair transplant surgery?

Put simply, hair transplant surgery is designed to reshape your hairline and offer hair growth to balding areas. Hair transplants are the best way for patients to gain a head of hair with a fuller and natural appearance.

Transgender hair transplants are designed with your gender reassignment surgery in mind. Whether you’re transitioning from male to female or female to male, we’re to offer the gender specific appearance you desire.

What Hair Restoration Surgery Should I Choose?

When it comes to hair transplants, the most popular method today is called Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE). During an FUE procedure, individual hair follicles are excised from your scalp and implanted (one by one) into your desired area. Your existing hair is used to treat hair loss! Whilst the surgery is underway, you will be given local anaesthetic; you shouldn’t feel anything more than a little bit of slight pressure!

One of the reasons FUE is used is because it is so fantastically versatile. Whether you’re looking to get a feminine curved hairline or grow facial hair, FUE is quick, produces minimal scarring, and takes hair individually, making it perfect for a transgender hair transplant.

How Much does a Hair Transplant Cost?

Hair transplant surgery can cost anywhere between £3,000 and £7,000. This disparity in cost, however, is very much dependent upon a case by case basis. Different patients have different wishes, needs, and severity of balding.

Included in the cost is a free consultation session in which you will speak to a GMC qualified hair transplant surgeon. From here, your transplant method, location, and date, will be decided.

At Harley Street Hair Transplant Clinics, we believe that anyone should be able to get a hair transplant, if they desire. This is why we’ve partnered with a finance company and can now offer a helpful payment plan for those who would rather pay over the course of 12 months interest free! No one should be denied the opportunity for a hair transplant!

Why Get a Hair Transplant if You're Transgender?

There are two key reasons why you may be interesting in getting a hair transplant: first, to reshape the hairline in a fashion more suitable to a person’s gender, and second, to halt signs of previous hair loss and pattern balding.

One of the biggest concerns facing the transgender community is gender dysphoria; the feeling that a person’s biological sex does not match gender identity. Hair transplant procedures can, potentially, reduce these feelings in patients.

Male to Female Transition

For many MTF patients, hair restoration surgery can be used to combat signs of balding that may have manifested pre-transition. One of the key hair procedures we can do is hairline lowering. This is where hair follicles are supplied into areas where hair has previously receded pre-transition.

The aim of this is to offer a more feminine appearance, in which hair new hair grows further down the head. This offers a permanent solution for those who have already experienced balding.

At Harley Street Hair Transplant Clinics, we also offer PRP therapy, which is designed to bolster and thicken hair follicles that already exist on your scalp. If you are looking for natural looking hair, this may also be something to consider.

Female to Male Transition

For those undergoing FTM transition, we offer a number of solutions that tackle male pattern hair loss and the desire to achieve a more masculine look.

During the transition process, hormone therapy given to patients can cause symptoms of male pattern baldness. As increased testosterone is directly linked with male pattern hair loss, it is not surprising that FTM patients, post-transition, may experience signs of balding. This is caused by DHT (Dihydrotestosterone), which attaches itself to a hair follicles and causes hair to unalterably shed.

To combat this, transgender patients can be given a number of hair transplant options to combat this. Whether it’s FUE, FUT, or DHI, a hair transplant offers a truly long term solution. Why not have a look at our procedure pages?

Another procedure offered is a beard transplant. Thanks to technological advancements with FUE, in which hairs can be individually extracted, beard transplants can also be offered. If you’re looking for a desirable beard, then a beard transplant may be for you! To learn about the process, please consult our beard transplant page.

No, your hair transplant should not hurt at all. During the procedure, you’ll be given local anaesthetic. You shouldn’t feel anything more than a little pressure. One of the best thing about FUE hair transplantation surgery is the minimal scarring and reduced recovery time. As no strip of skin is being excised, you won’t feel any tightness post-surgery.

Potentially, yes. It is possible that getting a hair transplant may help in alleviating feelings of gender dysphoria in transgender patients. However, it is also important to mention that all patients are different.

Typically anywhere between 1,000 and 3,000 hair follicles are extracted during an fue hair transplant procedure. Naturally, this depends on the severity and area of baldness.

Most likely yes! We have clinics in almost every UK major city. Head over to our clinic locations page in order to find out where you can get a hair transplant!

"My experience with Harley Street Clinic was exceptional. I was very apprehensive about getting my FUE procedure done, as one would expect. However, Sara reassured me and was very supportive pre and post-procedure. I am so pleased with the result thus far. The new hairline suits my face, and I cannot wait to see the full results. I must thank everyone at the Harley Street Clinic for their support, guidance, and care."I had an outstanding experience with the Harley Street Clinic. Initially, I had some apprehensions about getting my Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) procedure done, as I was unsure about how it would turn out. However, Sara, who assisted me throughout the procedure, was very supportive and helped calm my nerves. She provided me with thorough pre and post-procedure guidance, which was extremely helpful. I am delighted with the results I have seen so far. The new hairline suits my face perfectly, and I cannot wait to see the full results in the coming months. The team at the Harley Street Clinic was very supportive, and I felt like I was in good hands throughout the entire process. I would like to express my gratitude to everyone at the clinic for their support, guidance, and care. The experience was very positive, and I would highly recommend the Harley Street Clinic to anyone looking to undergo a similar procedure.

Thank you to the doctor and team. I was well looked after on the day of surgery and I’m really looking forward to the results. Initial anaesthetic injection was the only bit that I didn’t like but other than that, all good. Would recommend. David

Great surgeon, quick responses. Even drafted a Locum in to cover the original surgeon being on holiday. Very impressed with the set up and the results are very good so far.

To start, their care and procedures are absolutely incredible, if I was to base the review solely on the Dr and nurses I had for my procedure it would be an easy 5 stars. However I am rating only 4 stars, which I would consider slightly generous. I am trans, although very early transition when I had the procedure, and within the consultation I feel I was overlooked of what I wanted. After being asked what I was looking for from the procedure, I said I was trans, and wanted a natural looking feminine hairline (as well as obviously fixing my natural hairline), to which my consultant claimed that a masculine hairline would be easier to look natural. Going along with this, I thought any hairline transplant is better than nothing, and that he was the professional so I should take his advice and bite my tongue. In fairness, I was not wearing make up and was in jeans and a hoodie for the consultation, so maybe what I said just went over his head or maybe he didn’t take me seriously. In hindsight, I wish I didn’t closet myself at the first sign of push back from what I perceived as a medical professional, even talking to my doctor near the end of the procedure I felt comfortable enough to come out to him after what I had initially perceived to be a transphobic clinic (I promise you it’s not), and wish he was the one to do the consultation in the first place. He even said something along the lines of “I’ve done a masculine hairline on you, I wish you had have said something sooner”, and I didn’t want to cause any trouble for my consultant, so I didn’t say anything. All in all, the procedure went perfectly, and has healed really well. Cannot speak any higher of my doctors and nurses (although I have forgotten their names), and although not entirely happy with the hairline I received, it was done perfectly and is 100x better than my natural hairline. To all my trans girlies out there, please make it really clear what you want, look as fem as possible for the consultation, and if they push back at all - don’t let them walk all over you.

I originally took a lot of time researching a hair transplant company within the UK and came across these guys. I have to say that the whole experience has been so smooth from start to finish. Kevin has been nothing but helpful and it was encouraging to know that he only wanted the best for the client. The reason for my hair transplant was traction alopecia and even though I am only 5 days post op I can already see the potential hairline I will have in a few months time. Everything including booking, payment, forms etc was all so easy and straightforward to do with the help of Kevin. The day of the surgery I had my mum come with me and she was able to come into the room to start with before the actual surgery to help choose my hairline and Dr Kalra explained everything not only to me but to my mum also. Then it was onto the actual surgery part of the day and I have to say that while the local anaesthetic injections were pretty painful, the rest of the day was completely relaxing. Dr Kalra and the other staff (sorry I can’t remember their names) totally put me at ease. Everything was explained and if I needed anything all I had to do was ask. Post op I had a lot of bleeding in the donor area which I was worried about but Dr Kalra put my mind at ease straight away. If I had any questions or worries then Dr Kalra and Kevin were always on hand to help. 5 days post op I still have a fair amount of swelling and bruising but it is improving every day and I can’t wait to see results. I’ve booked a PRP session with Dr Kalra for 5 weeks time so I will post another update once that has been done. Thank you to everyone but special thanks to Kevin and Dr Kalra!

The whole experience was very straight forward and professional and the staff were very friendly. I felt I was in safe hands with Dr Kalra and the others who did the surgery and the aftercare process was explained very clearly to me afterwards.
