Women Hair Transplant
Almost every woman eventually develops some degree of female pattern hair loss. Hair loss in women often has a greater impact than hair loss does on men, For women hair loss is less socially acceptable for them. Also, it can severely affect a woman’s emotional well-being and quality of life. This can start any time after the onset of puberty, the risk rises with age, and it’s higher for women with a history of hair loss on either side of the family. Though all cases are not severe.
Today hair transplant has been revolutionized and has progressed to an all-time high with the latest technologies. It is accessible for both men and women, however whilst 90% of men are good candidates for a hair transplant, the same cannot be said about women.
Unfortunately, women with diffuse hair loss are less likely to be eligible for hair transplant procedure. Diffuse hair loss causes hair to thin in all areas of the scalp, including the sides and back. This will damage the areas needed for hair extraction and therefore the operation can’t be performed.
In men, the hair loss has a distinct pattern; it generally begins from the hairline and progresses up to the crown. The back of the head stays undamaged, which makes it a perfect donor for the thinning area. In female pattern baldness, however, these donor areas are usually unstable.
Another difference between male and female pattern baldness is the frontal hairline. Women, unlike men, tend to keep their frontal hairline. So you don’t have to worry about needing a hair transplant to frame your face. The main concern here would be loss of volume from the top and back. Hair transplants, though, don’t do much to increase volume. It just moves hair from one place to another.
Find out the best for you
So by now you are probably wondering: Are You Eligible for Hair Transplant?
To answer that question you need to determine your cause for hair loss. The surgery will be beneficial for you if:
- You’ve suffered hair loss due to mechanical or traction alopecia (nonhormonal).
- You’ve had previous cosmetic or plastic surgery and are concerned about hair loss around the incision sites.
- You’ve a distinct pattern of baldness, similar to that of male pattern baldness. This includes hairline recession, vertex thinning (on the crown or top of the scalp), and a donor area that is not affected by androgenetic alopecia.
- You suffer hair loss due to trauma, including burn victims, scarring from accidents, and chemical burns.
- You have alopecia marginalis, a condition that looks very similar to traction alopecia.
We’ve determined your hair loss type; next step is to choose the right hair transplant technique for you. There are two of them in this field – Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) and Direct Hair Implantation (DHI). Both are equally effective and provide the best results, however, for females we would recommend DHI, not only it will heal faster but, most importantly, we won’t have to shave all of your hair. Only the donor area will be shaved and in a way that would be easy to disguise with hair. To learn more about DHI follow the link below.
DHI Hair Transplant is the process of extracting hair follicles from the donor area via utilizing a micro motor and then transplanting them into the desired areas using a pen-like device that contains a hollow needle. The first thing that comes into mind when we say DHI is usually the FUE method, but there are actually some differences between the 2 techniques.
