Women Hair Transplant

Common things to know about female hair transplant

Women Hair Transplant – Hair loss is often perceived as a primarily male condition, yet women can also experience this for a variety of different reasons. Hair loss is something which can have a profound negative impact on a woman’s self-esteem, but a female hair transplant can provide a permanent solution in many cases.

For women with baldness problems, hair transplant in Turkey is the best solution.

Female patients at SHIFT can feel confident in receiving first-class treatment in the hands of a highly-experienced team which places comfort at the heart of every patient experience.

What causes female hair loss?

The main cause of hair loss in women, as in men, is inherited androgenetic alopecia. In women this is also known as ‘female pattern hair loss’, and while this condition is genetic, it tends to manifest itself differently in men and women. Female pattern hair loss is generally characterised by all-over thinning, whereas male pattern hair loss is more localised to a specific bald area or areas of the head. Both male and female pattern hair loss can often be successfully treated by hair transplantation, a treatment which offers a permanent solution to this type of hair loss.

Aside from female pattern hair loss, there are a variety of other factors which can also occasion hair loss or hair thinning in women. These include underlying health conditions such as hypo- or hyper-thyroidism, polycystic ovary syndrome, certain skin conditions, illness and also the side-effects of taking heavy medication or receiving intense medical treatments such as chemotherapy. Certain lifestyle factors, such as exhaustion, poor nutrition and vitamin and iron deficiency, can also have a negative impact on hair health, as can psychological trauma.

Hair transplant for women is the only guaranteed way to fight hair loss in women.

In some cases, hair loss in women may be temporary and resolve itself over the course of time. This is particularly true of hair loss that is linked to a specific physically or psychologically traumatic event such as pregnancy, childbirth, surgery or a difficult life event. In other cases, hair loss can be at least partially remedied by making lifestyle changes or addressing the underlying causes of the hair loss. However, in situations where such hair loss is permanent, a hair transplant can help in improving the overall appearance of the hair, and in doing so can boost the confidence of female patients. Some women also choose to have a hair transplant if they wish to lower their hairline for cosmetic purposes.

Non-surgical hair loss solutions for women

Non-surgical hair loss solutions can go some way towards alleviating the effects of female hair loss. These include Minoxidil (a topical treatment), low-level laser therapy, and using keratin fibre sprays or ‘thickening’ hair care products to give a temporary appearance of greater fullness. However, they are not usually a permanent solution for hair loss.

Hair transplantation for women

In general, a hair transplant constitutes the most permanent solution for hair loss in men and women. In theory, treating female patients is reasonably similar to treating male patients, yet there are certain factors to take into account when treating women.

Firstly, most women are understandably reluctant to shave their hair, which means that in most cases they will be better candidates for DHI, rather than FUE, treatment. Although FUE is the most widely-used treatment method in male patients, because it enables transplantation of the maximum number of grafts, it normally requires a full shave. DHI, on the other hand, is excellent for increasing density without disturbing the original hairs in the transplanted area, which means that it is a very good solution for women with thinning hair.

The donor area is the most important eligibility criteria for hair transplant for women in Turkey.

With the DHI technique, it is normally possible to shave only a small part of the hair at the back of a female patient’s head, which can be covered if a woman has reasonably long hair. The donor grafts can then be extracted from this area, and while coverage will be less dense once the remaining hairs have grown back again, the better overall coverage across the scalp should help to offset this.

Pregnancy and childbirth are also important considerations for female patients, as are previous medical conditions. It is not normally advisable for pregnant or breastfeeding women to undergo a hair transplant because it involves administering a local anaesthetic. SHIFT is mindful of the specific needs of female patients and will take these into consideration when discussing a course of treatment.
