How is Female Hair Transplantation Performed?
Female hair transplant can be a great solution for many women experiencing hair loss.
In the past, very successful results could not be obtained from female hair transplantation, but nowadays, with the contribution of developing technology, more natural-looking results can be obtained.
Hair transplantation for women has gradually started to gain popularity with the treatment of some of the well-known female celebrities.
“How is hair transplantation done in women?” We asked the question to Emphair Hair Transplantation Center:
“When it comes to hair loss, there are some similarities between hair loss in men and hair loss in women. However, there are also major differences between the causes of the two.
Only 2 to 5% of Women are Suitable Candidates for Treatment
Although male pattern baldness accounts for more than 95% of hair loss in men, hair transplantation can be performed on most of them. But only 2 to 5% of women are suitable candidates for treatment.
Both men and women are medically androgenetic You may experience hair loss known as alopecia , which you may also hear often referred to as male or female pattern baldness.
For both men and women, this type of hair loss typically occurs due to a combination of genetics, age, and hormones.
However, the production of several additional hormones and enzymes in women makes it difficult to diagnose the exact cause of hair loss and causes it to manifest itself differently.
In Women, Thinning is Seen not Only On The Top But Also All Over The Head
Male pattern baldness tends to manifest clinically. This means that a specialist can usually understand the reasons behind hair loss simply by looking at the patient and asking a few routine questions about their family and medical history.
For most men, hair loss is usually in the form of thinning or baldness on the front and top of the head. The hair on the back and sides usually remains stable and does not fall out.
But when hair starts to fall out in women, it is observed as thinning and sparseness not only on the top but also all over the head.
In men, the hair follicles on the back and sides of the head are like this because they are resistant to the hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT), which is thought to be the cause of hair loss.
In female hair transplantation, this situation is not very clear, so it is difficult to understand whether the hair on the back of the head is resistant to DHT .
For this reason, we test women primarily to understand the general hair loss problem. We first investigate whether there is an underlying disease that triggers female hair loss.
Shaved or Unshaved Hair Transplantation According to the Preference of the Female Patient
Worth noting that hair transplants for women are typically only suitable for those who have lost their hair on the top of their head, while the hair on the back and sides should still be dense, strong and DHT resistant.
When all the preparations are completed, after it is understood from the test results that she is a suitable candidate for female hair transplantation, shaved or unshaved hair transplantation options are offered according to the preference of the female patient, and female hair transplantation is performed.
Women's hair transplant is no different from men's hair transplant. In the same way, hair follicles are taken from the back of the head and transferred to the bald area.
After hair transplantation in women, it is very comfortable, and healthy hair is achieved in an average of 1 year.
