MTF Hair Transplant

The journey to embracing one's true self is both empowering and transformative. For individuals transitioning from male to female (MTF), creating a feminine appearance often involves attention to various physical attributes, including the hairline. A well-defined, natural-looking hairline can enhance femininity and instil confidence, allowing one's external appearance to mirror their inner identity.

What is an MTF hair transplant?

An MTF (Male-to-Female) hair transplant is a specialised procedure designed to help transgender women achieve a more feminine hairline and overall appearance. This treatment is more than a standard hair transplant; it's a customised approach to creating harmony between one's appearance and identity, recognising the unique aesthetic needs and goals of individuals undergoing male-to-female transition,

Who is the right candidate for an MTF hair transplant?

The decision to pursue an MTF hair transplant is a deeply personal one and can be a vital step in aligning one's physical appearance with their gender identity. But who exactly qualifies for this transformative procedure? Here's what you need to know:

  1. Understanding Your Needs: MTF hair transplant is designed for individuals transitioning from male to female who desire a more feminine hairline and fuller hair density. Whether to soften a receding hairline or add volume in specific areas, this procedure can be customised to meet your unique requirements.
  2. Initial Consultation: Your journey begins with a comprehensive consultation at FUE Clinics. Our expert surgeons will assess your hair characteristics, scalp health, and overall aesthetic goals. We consider factors such as face shape, hair type, and personal preferences to create a tailored plan that resonates with your vision of femininity.
  3. Medical Considerations: While the desire to enhance your appearance is essential, there may be specific medical criteria to consider. Our team will evaluate your overall health, previous medical history, and any medications you may be taking to ensure that the procedure is a safe and viable option for you.
  4. Emotional Readiness: Transitioning is a significant life journey, and undergoing surgical procedures like hair transplant requires careful consideration and emotional readiness. At FUE Clinics, we provide support and guidance, ensuring you are comfortable with the decision and fully informed about the process.
  5. Realistic Expectations: Having realistic expectations is key to satisfaction with the results. During the consultation, we'll discuss what the procedure can achieve and show before-and-after examples to help you visualise potential outcomes.

Choosing to undergo an MTF hair transplant is an empowering step towards aligning your physical appearance with your true self. FUE Clinics is committed to walking this path with you with our patient-centric approach, state-of-the-art technology, and unparalleled expertise. Your confidence and satisfaction are at the core of what we do, and we invite you to schedule a consultation to explore how we can make your vision a reality.

Our MTF hair transplant procedure

MTF hair transplants at FUE Clinics require precision, skill, and a deep understanding of aesthetics. Utilising the Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) method, our experts work meticulously to create a feminine hairline that aligns with your goals and enhances your natural beauty. Here's an in-depth look at the process:

  1. Extraction: The FUE method begins with the extraction of individual hair follicles from a designated donor area, usually the back or sides of the head. Unlike traditional methods, FUE allows for minimal scarring, preserving the natural appearance of the donor area.
  2. Preparation: Each extracted follicle is carefully examined and prepared under a microscope. This ensures that only healthy and suitable follicles are selected for transplantation, optimising growth and longevity.
  3. Designing Your Hairline: Crafting a feminine hairline requires artistic vision and surgical precision. Our surgeons will collaborate with you to design a hairline that complements your face shape and reflects your desired look. Soft curves, appropriate positioning, and attention to density are key factors in achieving a natural and flattering appearance.
  4. Implantation: The prepared follicles are meticulously placed into tiny incisions made along the designed hairline and other targeted areas. The angle, depth, and distribution of the follicles are carefully controlled to mimic natural hair growth patterns and achieve seamless integration with existing hair.

Post-Procedure Care: Once the implantation is complete, you will receive detailed instructions for post-procedure care. This includes guidelines on cleaning, sleeping positions, and activities to avoid, ensuring optimal healing and growth.

Recovery and aftercare

The success of an MTF hair transplant doesn't solely depend on the surgery itself. The recovery and aftercare period is equally crucial in achieving beautiful and lasting results. At FUE Clinics, we are committed to guiding you every step of the way. Here's what you can expect during your recovery journey:

  • Immediate Care: After the procedure, our team will provide you with detailed instructions and necessary supplies for taking care of the transplant area. This includes gentle washing techniques, medication for pain or swelling, and advice on protecting the newly implanted follicles.
  • Healing Process: The initial healing phase may include mild discomfort, swelling, or redness. These are normal and typically subside within the first week. Diligently following our post-operative care guidelines will aid in a smooth recovery.
  • Returning to Normal Activities: Depending on your individual case and the nature of your daily activities, our specialists will recommend a suitable timeline for resuming work, exercise, and other routines. Generally, gentle activities can be resumed within a few days, while more strenuous tasks may require a longer wait.
  • Hair Growth Expectations: It's essential to have patience as your new hair begins to grow. You may notice shedding in the initial weeks - this is a normal part of the process. New growth typically begins within 2-3 months, with full results visible after 8-12 months.
  • Ongoing Support and Monitoring: Regular follow-up appointments will be scheduled to track your progress, address any concerns, and make necessary adjustments to your aftercare plan. Your well-being and satisfaction are our utmost priority.

Long-Term Hair Care Guidance: Achieving and maintaining the best results requires ongoing care. We will provide personalised recommendations for hair products, styling techniques, and general hair care practices tailored to preserve the health and appearance of your hair.


The procedure typically takes 4-8 hours, depending on the number of grafts required and the complexity of the design. At FUE Clinics, we take the time needed to ensure the best possible outcome for each individual.

The procedure is usually performed under local anaesthesia, minimising discomfort. Some patients might experience mild soreness after the surgery, but this can typically be managed with prescribed pain medication.

The cost of an MTF Hair Transplant varies depending on individual needs, the number of grafts, and the complexity of the design. We provide a transparent and personalised cost estimate during the initial consultation.

You can learn more about the cost of hair transplants on our pricing page.

While you may notice new hair growth within a few months, full results generally take between 8-12 months. Regular follow-up appointments at FUE Clinics will ensure proper monitoring and support throughout this process.
