FtM Hair Restoration — The Journey Towards Being the True You
For those undergoing the FtM transition process, hair growth in the correct places is essential to feeling confident and comfortable in who you are and in your own skin. From achieving your desired masculine hairline to growing facial hair, each step is important in your journey to becoming who you actually are.
At our clinic, we take your transition journey into consideration when planning a transgender hairline surgery or any other procedure. Every procedure will be tailored specifically to your needs to ensure you are fully satisfied with the results.
The Importance of Natural-Looking Hairlines
Having a full understanding of the differences between a masculine and feminine hairline is a crucial part of the hair transplantation process. This is especially important when it comes to constructing and providing FtM transgender patients with natural-looking hair and hairlines.
The Difference Between Male and Female Hairlines
The main differences between feminine and masculine hairlines are the hairline shape, the way the hair flows and the ageing pattern. Feminine hairlines are typically positioned lower down the forehead while masculine hairlines tend to be further back.
In terms of hairline shape, men tend to experience a receding hairline around their temples which forms an ‘M’ shape. Women on the other hand, generally have a rounder hairline for most of their lives.
When planning FtM transgender hair transplants, there are several factors to consider when deciding on the hairline position. These factors include facial shape, graft availability, ethnic characteristics, the present or anticipating stage of balding, hair characteristics, and of course, the patient’s preference.
Hair Loss Caused by Hormone Therapy
During the female to male transition process, your physical appearance as well as your hair will start to change as a result of your male hormones. During hormone replacement therapy, your testosterone is converted into the male hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT) which can cause your hair follicles to miniaturise and shed. Over time this can lead you to experience male pattern baldness and result in a receding male hairline or thinning crown.
With an in-depth understanding of this concern, Dr Bonaros provides potent hair loss treatments tailored for those transitioning from female to male. Our hair transplantation methods are specialised and employ the highly advanced FUE method. As a result, our hair transplant procedures effectively combat transgender male pattern hair loss and provide natural-looking and long-lasting results.

Transgender Hair Restoration with FUE Hair Transplants
The FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) hair transplant surgery is a highly advanced and sutureless cosmetic procedure for FtM transgender hair restoration. During the FUE hair transplant, hair follicles are individually harvested from the back of the head under local anaesthesia. These donor hair follicles are then implanted into the recipient area — hairline, beard or body.
There are several benefits to FUE hair transplants that make it the favoured method over more traditional hair restoration surgery options. Some of these advantages include:
- Minimally invasive procedure that results in no linear scarring
- Quicker recovery time with less discomfort
- Scarring that is virtually undetectable
- Ability to wear your very hair short
Here are the FUE hair transplantation procedures we offer transgender patients:
A FtM FUE trans hairline surgery is ideal for patients who wish to change their feminine hairline into a more masculine one. During this transgender hair transplant surgery, the donor hair follicles are used to lower and reshape the frontal hairline into one that is more masculine. If a receding hairline is already present due to FtM balding, the donor hair can be used to fill in balding spots along the hairline.
Dr Bonaros and his team offer this hairline-lowering hair transplant procedure for our Glasgow clinic to help FtM transgender patients achieve a more gender-specific appearance.
As part of the transitioning process, beard hair does tend to grow. However, not all transgender patients will experience uniform hair growth which can result in patchy facial hair. FtM FUE facial hair transplants can be the perfect solution for patients who want a desirable beard that is denser and more masculine. The most common areas on the face that are filled in with donor hair follicles include sideburns, cheeks, moustache area and chin.
Our hair transplant clinic offers professional FtM beard transplant procedures using the FUE method to provide those with sparse facial hair a more natural appearance.
Body Hair Transplant
Utilising existing hair follicles from the back of the head, a FUE Body Hair Transplant (BHT) is a great choice for FtM patients who want additional body hair. The three most common areas people choose to have this transgender hair transplant procedure are the chest, abdomen and pubic area.
To help FtM transgender patients achieve a more masculine look, Dr Bonaros offers FUE body hair transplants from his leading hair transplant clinic in Glasgow.

Non-Surgical Hair Loss Treatments
Before you decide to undergo a MtF transgender hair transplant surgery, we recommend that you first try non-surgical treatments first. There are a variety of hair restoration options that are less invasive such as hair loss medications. While the effectiveness of these hair loss treatments varies from patient to patient, Dr Bonaros can advise you on the option that best suits your current stage of hair loss and future goals.
Some medications for hair loss include:
Minoxidil was originally used as a way of treating hypertension but was found to promote excessive hair growth on the body as one of its side effects. This led to its topical formulation, which has become one of the most popular treatments for male pattern baldness.
Minoxidil is also available in oral form however it does require a prescription. Dr Bonaros can write private prescriptions for oral minoxidil following a consultation at his hair transplant clinic in Glasgow.
Oral finasteride is a prescription male pattern hair loss treatment that has proven most effective in promoting hair growth on the crown of the head. For men who are not comfortable taking finasteride in its oral form, a topical formulation is also available.
Dutasteride, also known as Avodart, is used to treat benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) but can also be prescribed off-label for treating male pattern baldness. As this medication is highly effective in slowing down men’s hair loss, Dutasteride is one of the best prescription medications for male pattern hair loss.

Female to Male Hair Transplant — FAQs
From battling with FtM male pattern baldness to seeking ways to promote new hair growth or thicken existing hair, it is very common to have a lot of questions when considering a transgender hair transplant.
Below we have compiled the answers to some of the most common questions our patients ask to help provide you with accurate and relevant information.
How much does a transgender hair transplant cost?
The average cost for FUE transgender hair transplants in Glasgow is roughly £6000, with costs starting as low as £3500 and going up to around £12000. But the full price of a FtM transplant will vary as it is dependent on the characteristics of your hair, the overall complexity of your transgender hair transplant procedure and the number of grafts you require.

Is a hair transplant a permanent solution for a receding hairline?
A FUE hair transplant procedure is a permanent solution for the transplanted hair. This FtM hair loss surgery can restore hair to thinning areas with permanent results but this does not stop the balding process or future hair loss in other areas.
Is there a hair transplant for transgender male to female patients?
Absolutely. We believe that everyone should be able to feel comfortable and confident in their own skin. Dr Bonaros offers male to female hair transplant procedures from his Glasgow clinic to help MtF transgender patients receive more natural-looking female hairlines.
