Dr. Boden has had a number of male to female transgender patients, and these patients are some of the most grateful people he has worked with and has provided Dr. Boden with great satisfaction as well.

Several of them have undergone "gender confirmation surgery"--previously referred to as a sex-change operation--and for them, their hair transplantation can be their most meaningful procedure. The appearance and growth of their hair reflects a critical component of the way they present to the world.

The patient is on appropriate hormonal therapy and Dr. Boden has encouraged her to add minoxidil and proper dietary supplements to support hair growth.
