Hair Transplant for Women

Hair loss is an issue that affects both women and men. It is widely known that one of the main factors is related to diet and hormones. For further diagnosis and to identify the cause, special tests must be conducted on the patient.

Nonetheless, hair transplantation can be successfully used for female patients. Even if a woman's hair loss may happen differently than for men, the same methods will still lead to successful outcomes.

Hair loss on women is seen in different ways. With the Ludwig Classification, hair loss on women is classified as follows:

  • Type 1 : As hair loss is low, shedding is barely noticeable. Most shedding occurs at the top and front of the head.
  • Type 2 : A hair transplant can be performed at this stage according to the intensity of the shedding and the size of the affected area.
  • Type 3 : The hair is thin and the areas where shedding occurs can be clearly identified at this stage. The shedding may increase over time and spread to all areas of the head.

In most cases, women who suffer from hair loss are suitable for hair transplantation since they have a healthy donor area. Successful results are achieved when an experienced team performs the operation at a well-equipped clinic.

Is it noticeable that hair transplant was done on a women?

It may take up to two months for redness to subside in people with very light skin color after the hair transplant procedure. Scars from the procedure usually lose their clarity within two weeks.

The unshaven hair transplantation method allows the patient to return to normal life the following day.
