Transgender Hair Restoration Options
Transgender patients are no different than any person seeking hair restoration surgery. The main issue faced in regards to transsexual patients is the need to change a “masculine” hairline to a more “feminine” one. This issue applies to male to female transsexual patients who suffer from male patterned baldness.

Second includes additional miniaturization or balding of the rest of the hair which may require further hair restoration.

Trading one hell for another: Jessica’s challenges
Jessica has worn holes into her size 11 practical Mary-Jane shoes.
They’re obviously not shoes she wears as a costume, they’re shoes she wears for real life.
And real life these days seems to be wearing holes in Jessica.
“You go from everyday, living in hell, knowing you’re living in the wrong body to the hell of the ignorant public,” said Jessica.
Jessica is transgendered. Born with male organs, she said she’s always known she was meant to be a female. It’s taken decades for her to come to terms with it — years spent living a man’s life she was unhappy with, which led to a drug addiction, homelessness and destructive relationships.
(Photo by Colleen Dane - Jessica says that she’s leaving the Comox Valley after a series of discriminatory incidents. She’s spending her second Christmas at a local abused women’s shelter after threats to her safety.)
