Causes of Hair Loss in Transgender Patients
There are many potential causes, just as there are many potential solutions! The main ones to consider are:
Hormones: gender-affirming hormones have been linked to increased instances of androgenic alopecia in transgender men. Transmen and non-binary individuals on testosterone have reported significantly more hair loss than those not using testosterone. Essentially, testosterone use is linked with male-pattern baldness. For some transgender men, male-pattern baldness is a desired masculine trait. For others, it may come as an unpleasant surprise.
Genetics: Transgender women are also at risk of experiencing male-pattern baldness. The dysphoria associated with male pattern baldness for transgender women can be deeply uncomfortable. By working on a hair transplant, in order to achieve density, we can increase comfort, control and aesthetic.
