Here you can see before and after pictures of a hair transplant performed on a woman.
female hair transplantation is different from men.
Hair transplantation for women is a cosmetic procedure involving the removal of hair from a part of the head.
(usually the back or sides) where there is enough hair.
This hair is then implanted in the places where there is thinning or sparse hair.
Hair transplants for women are usually less extensive than for men.
Because women more often experience thinning hair instead of complete hair loss.
However, women can also experience genetic hair loss, hormonal changes, diseases or trauma that cause hair loss.
To be a suitable candidate for a hair transplant, the woman should have enough donor hair to draw from and a stable hairline.
Women with diffuse hair loss over the entire head may not be suitable candidates for a hair transplant.
Hair transplants for women are usually performed using FUE (follicular unit extraction) or FUT (follicular unit transplantation) methods.
The FUE method involves removing hairs individually from the donor area while the FUT method involves removing a strip of hair from the donor area and then dividing it into smaller units for transplantation.
After a hair transplant, it can take several months for the transplanted follicles to start producing hair. Some of the transplanted hair may also fall out within the first few months, but it should start growing again within six months.
As with any surgical procedure, there are certain risks and side effects that can occur with a hair transplant, including infection, scarring, pain and discomfort. Women should seek an experienced and qualified hair transplant surgeon to minimise the risk of complications and achieve the best possible results.
