Transgender Hair Transplant – what

The Basics

What is a Transgender Hair Transplant?

For our transgender patients, we take care to understand your needs and the nuanced ways that a hair transplant can complement gender-affirming care. Simply put, Dr. Benjamin Paul is a world-class surgeon who will make you feel confident, affirmed, and beautiful in your identity when you leave our clinic on the Upper East Side. We look forward to working with you toward your aesthetic goals.

The two main hair transplants used for all patients are FUE (follicular unit extraction) and FUT (follicular unit transfer). Both procedures harvest hair from the back of the head known as the donor site. The individual unit (or seed) of hair growth is the follicle. Both FUE and FUT allow for follicular isolation. The follicle is then planted in the recipient site. Dr. Paul has mastered every form of the most advanced hair transplant technology to assist in helping you achieve the best result. 


Transgender Hair Transplant Timeline


    At our first meeting, we will discuss your goals and problem areas, go over a treatment plan, and confirm the cost of treatment for you. We can also book your hair transplant surgery appointment during your consultation if you are ready to move forward. 

    1st Visit

    We will review instructions and send in any medicines that you will need for your transplant day and recovery in advance. We will answer questions and confirm our surgical plan. 

    2nd Visit

    You will meet with Dr. Paul and review the plan once more. We will administer a numbing agent and your surgeon will perform the procedure with their team of expert medical staff. After the hair transplant is completed, we will go over the recovery process and follow-up appointments. You will be able to recover comfortably at home or hotel with a wrap on your head.

    3rd Visit

    Many patients can return to work from home the day following a transplant. The head wrap is removed in the morning. There may be redness, scabbing, and swelling. You will limit exercise.

    (DAY 1)

    You will safely wash your hair following our special instructions. Most patients require no more pain medicine at this point. You may take long walks, but should avoid sweating and over-exertion.

    (DAYs 2-10)
  • Weeks Following Surgery

    You will return to the office and sutures may be removed if placed. Scabs may still be present and will fall off in the coming days. We will advise you on how to return to normal showers and exercise safely.

    (WEEKS 1-2)

    By 3 weeks, most people can return to full activity. You may notice the transplanted hair shed between 3 weeks and 3 months. This is normal and expected.  The transplanted hair follicle will then rest before growing new hair.

    (WEEKS 3-12)

    At about the 6 month mark, you should start to see results from the transplant. Hairs do not return on the same day. Day by day, your new hair will mature and get thicker.  

    (MONTHS 6-12)

    Your new hair growth is very evident at this stage and will be blending in nicely with the rest of your hair. Patients come to see Dr. Paul for their hair transplant to receive an outstanding result, and this is what they receive. 

    (12 MONTHS+)

What are the Benefits of a Transgender Hair Transplant?

Dr. Paul has performed hundreds of hair transplant surgeries during his career, and although each client is an individual, these are some of the most common benefits we see in our clients, which can benefit you too:

  • Increased self-esteem
  • Gender-affirming confidence
  • Thicker, denser hair texture
  • An improved hairline that better frames the face
  • A more vibrant look

We consistently produce over 95% viability rates, which are the best in class. We can achieve this with our expertise and efficiency. 

Who are the Best Candidates for the Transgender Hair Transplant Procedure?

We approach each patient as an individual with distinct goals, motivations, and desires. We are very focused on providing a luxury, personalized, and elevated experience for each of our patients. We will not perform a hair transplant if we do not believe the result will be satisfactory. We understand this could be disappointing, and we will be compassionate when delivering such a recommendation. At the same time, we only wish to proceed with a hair transplant if we believe we achieve the desired result. We will always review other options for hair restoration if you are not a candidate for a hair transplant. 

With that being said, our surgeons are pleased to offer hair transplants to transgender clients, as we know how important it is to walk through the world feeling affirmed and confident in your identity. To know whether you are a great candidate for a hair transplant, call us today to schedule a consultation.


What’s The First Step?

The first step on your journey to getting a transgender hair transplant is to book your consultation with Dr. Paul. Here, your questions, concerns, and desired outcomes will be addressed, and you will also get a better understanding of the process Dr. Paul uses in his state-of-the-art center in NYC. Once Dr. Paul has assessed your hair and goals, he can walk you through the treatment plan he has in mind. From there, our medical staff will book your procedure appointment so you can begin your journey. 

What to Expect on the Day of a Transgender Hair Transplant

On the day of your hair transplant, we ask all patients to arrive at our clinic 20-30 minutes early to fill out paperwork and get comfortable in the treatment room. Dr. Paul will be the surgeon working on your hair transplant, along with his expert medical staff to ensure a timely process that is as pain-free as possible. We administer a numbing agent, or anesthesia to make you comfortable before beginning the procedure. We minimize the amount of time the hair is out of the body to optimize the survival of every transferred follicle. We are very delicate in the extraction and placement of each hair during your procedure. 

Once the transplant is completed, we go over the recovery process with you, as well as follow-up appointments. We can also arrange transportation to your accommodation post-treatment if you require.

Transgender Hair Transplant Recovery

Most patients can return to work from home after a hair transplant the next day and wear a baseball cap. After your treatment, Dr. Paul and our medical staff will walk you through post-surgery care to ensure you are taken care of. Most patients take a little Tylenol the first night and need nothing by the next day after a hair transplant.

We routinely use long-acting numbing medicine so you do not feel any pain or discomfort. We encourage you to bring up any questions about your recovery process during your consultation so we can ensure you have all the information you need.


How Much Does a Transgender Hair Transplant Cost in New York City?

 The cost of a Transgender Hair Transplant in New York City can vary in cost, depending on the amount of area being treated, the type of hair we are working with, and your desired outcome. During the initial consult, Dr. Paul will take the time to go over the process of a hair transplant, while also assessing your goals and hair. From this, we will let you know the cost of the transplant before your procedure, depending on the scope of work. We will not charge you more on the day of the procedure.

If you are interested in a hair transplant but are unsure of what this may cost you, you can e-mail us photos. We can review the photos and provide a range or estimate of cost. This is complementary.
