Understanding Gender Affirmation
Gender affirmation refers to the process in which individuals transition to their self-identified gender, embracing their authentic selves. This journey often involves various steps, including social, medical, and sometimes surgical interventions. The process is unique to each person, and one crucial aspect is the ability to shape their outward app to match their inner identity.
The Role of Hair Restoration
Hair is a defining feature of one’s appearance and can significantly impact how a person perceives themselves and how they are perceived by others. For transgender individuals, hair restoration can be an essential part of aligning their appearance with their gender identity. Whether it’s facial hair for trans men or head hair for trans women, the presence or absence of hair can have a profound effect on self-confidence and gender expression.
The NeoGraft Procedure
NeoGraft utilizes a technique called follicular unit extraction (FUE), where individual hair follicles are gently extracted from the donor area. This usually takes place at the back of the head. Then, the harvested hair follicles are carefully implanted into the recipient area, taking into account the desired hairline and density to achieve a natural and feminine or masculine appearance. NeoGraft’s minimally invasive approach allows for faster healing and minimal downtime. Over the following months, the transplanted hair grows naturally, providing a long-lasting and life-changing transformation.
