WOMEN Hair transplant

HAIR  TRANSPLANT IN WOMEN

Hair loss in women is a more complex problem than in men, because it is frequently associated with other medical conditions. The priority in female hair loss patients is to eliminate possible systemic diseases that will prevent a hair transplant from giving a good result, and to do a thorough laboratory analysis. Females with hair loss who don’t have an underlying medical condition may be a good candidate for surgical hair restoration. Since surgical hair restoration is based on taking hair follicles from the area with good density and strong follicles and then transferred to the deficient area. Female hair loss that is not associated with systemic diseases can be presented in two different ways: It can either be male pattern baldness which means it will be seen as a receding of the hairline and thinning at the vertex or it can be female pattern which is seen as a diffuse thinning at the top of the head leaving the hairline intact. It is rarely as severe as males, thus in women is usually aimed at increasing density at deficient areas.
