Feeling comfortable in your body as you transition when it comes to gender-affirming care is never a “one box fits all” kind of situation. What may be right for someone else’s transition may not be needed for yours. That’s why options like hairline feminization surgery are so important to meeting individual needs and body goals. As you are transitioning, you may not be aware of all the options out there and if they are valuable to your process. Let’s take a closer look at what hairline feminization surgery is so you can better understand if it’s for you.
What Is Hairline Feminization Surgery?
Hairline feminization surgery is designed to replicate a natural feminine hairline. In general, masculine hairlines are often higher up, are more defined, and often form an “M” shape. Hairline feminization surgery’s primary purpose is to move the hairline forward and help create a more round and feminine shape. The two ways to achieve this are through scalp advancement and hair grafting. Scalp advancement is where the scalp is surgically repositioned to alter the shape of the hairline. Hair grafting takes a more traditional approach and removes hair follicles from the back of the head and transfers them toward the front. The hair follicles then will grow new hair and redefine the hairline.
