Hair Transplant For Women
The cases where hair transplantation is required in women are less than in men. Hair loss in women is due to many reasons. For this reason, detailed examinations and anamnesis are required before hair transplantation to a woman. It is possible to reduce or stop hair loss in women by treating the underlying simple causes. The other option is Hair Transplant For Women. Therefore, I recommend women to read this article before deciding on hair transplantation.
My hair is falling out a lot, should I have a hair transplant?
Hair loss due to iron deficiency is one of the most common causes, especially in young women. Irregular menstruation periods are the most common causes of this. If iron deficiency or hemoglobin deficiency is detected with a simple hemogram and iron test, hair loss can be slowed down with a simple replacement therapy lasting 2 months.
Hair loss in women due to hormonal irregularity
The imbalance and chronicity of estrogen, progesterone and testosterone hormones constitute a large part of the reasons that compel women to have hair transplantation. In particular, the increase in the ratio of testosterone hormone over other hormones and its dominance cause male pattern shedding in women (opening in the gulfs, weakening of the hair on the top).
Test results are good, hair transplantation is required, what should be considered?
First of all, I would like to point out that grafts in women do not contain multiple hair follicles as in men. Generally, women have 1 or 2 grafts. You can read what graft means here. this means that we should use the grafts we have taken more effectively in order to get a good result.
Which technique should be used in Female Hair Transplantation?
I recommend the unshaven sapphire fue method, especially for women with anterior hairline loss. Front hairline planning should be specific to women, otherwise unnatural results will occur.
In women with general hair loss, the DHI technique can be used depending on the length of the hair. If unshaven hair transplantation is suitable, it will be quicker for the patient to return to his social life after the surgery.
It should be noted that in unshaven female hair transplantation, the donor area is shaved, and the larger this shaved area is, the more grafts can be taken and the larger the hair transplant will be.
Hair Transplant Advantages for Women
Since women use long hair, a more intense image can be obtained with less grafts. Since the grafts of women who need hair transplantation are generally thinner, these thin grafts will give more natural results.
Hair Transplant Disadvantages for Women
Since there is general hair loss, the area to be transplanted is wider, which means that the number of grafts transplanted per cm square is less. The fact that the grafts in women contain less follicles is disadvantageous as it will reduce the density of the transplanted hair.
I recommend women to get a consultation from a hair transplant doctor, especially before planning a hair transplant. In my approximately 7 years of hair surgery experience, I treated almost 50% of the women who came to my clinic requesting a hair transplant, with medical treatments without the need for a hair transplant.
