This patient is a 33-year-old transgender female from Seattle who desired a feminine hairline. Her hair is light brown, medium thickness in caliber, which is excellent for frontal hairline and frontal-temporal recession restoration/transplantation. The reason that her hair is excellent for the transplant is that it is thick enough to give the appearance of nice, natural density, but not too thick which can give an unnatural look in the frontal hairline. In the frontal zone, we strive to put the thinnest hairs in the most anterior aspect of the hairline, and build a gradient to thicker hairs the further back in the transplanted zone. This gives the most natural appearance to a frontal hairline transplant.


This patient had her transplant just over a week ago and was willing to share her photographs on a monthly basis while the transplanted hairs grow. She is from Seattle so the follow up photographs will have a different appearance (background/camera), but the concept will be nicely demonstrated as the transplanted hairs grown throughout the coming year. I want to thank this patient in advance for taking the time and offering to take her photographs on a monthly basis to post her results.

I always like these cases. A transplant is obviously a big deal for anyone but for transgender patients perhaps even more so.The work looks excellent and well done to her for being willing to document her progress. I look forward to following this.
