Hair Transplant for Women

Hair transplant can be also suitable for women, the procedure can be a little bit more different than for men, but at the end it’s the same operation. 

Depending on which the type of hair loss a woman is experiencing our doctors decide if the surgery is a good option or not. The reason why hair transplant is popular among men is that the hereditary hair loss condition androgenic alopecia presents differently in cases of male pattern baldness compared to how female pattern hair loss presents in women.

In women the problem is mostly a general thinning which appears along the top of the head and at the temples. Women are more likely to notice signs such as their parting becoming wider, thinning at the temples and their feeling less full when they try to put it in a ponytail, as well as excessive hair shedding.

Which Women Are Good Candidates for Hair Transplant?

According to experts a very small percentage of women are candidates for hair transplant surgery. About 2% to 5% of women with hair loss will benefit from this type of procedure. They are:

  • Women who have suffered hair loss due to mechanical or traction alopecia (nonhormonal).
  • Women who have had previous cosmetic or plastic surgery and are concerned about hair loss around the incision sites.
  • Women who have a distinct pattern of baldness, similar to that of male pattern baldness. This includes hairline recession, vertex thinning (on the crown or top of the scalp), and a donor area that is not affected by androgenetic alopecia.
  • Women who suffer hair loss due to trauma, including burn victims, scarring from accidents, and chemical burns.
  • Women with alopecia marginalis, a condition that looks very similar to traction alopecia.
