Female hair loss is an embarrassing experience for many women, but it doesn’t have to be. Features hair restoration experts who specialize in treating female hair loss and helping women regain their confidence to face each day with beautiful, bold hair.
Although hair loss may seem like a man’s problem rather than a woman’s problem, women are almost equally susceptible to hair loss – or thinning hair at any age – and for a variety of reasons.
One in three women suffer from hair loss. There can be several reasons for hair loss in women. There are a handful of contributing factors that can interfere with the natural hair growth cycle – medications, diseases, infections or chemicals – all of which have the potential to prevent hair from completing its natural growth cycle.
The shape of the female hairline differs markedly from that of the opposite sex. Instead of a frontal-temporal receding hairline like in men, a woman’s hairline slopes downward and is rounded.
Our female hair transplant specialists meticulously and compassionately recreate every angle of the recipient site to ensure that the female hair transplant model created complements the appearance of youthful female hair.
Additionally, they take important factors into consideration – patient’s age, ethnicity, head shape, facial features, stage of hair loss – to develop the most effective hair restoration technique.
After a female hair transplant, your scalp may be sore and sensitive. Your hair transplant surgeon may ask you to take painkillers for several days. You will also need to wear bandages on your scalp for at least a day or two. The doctor may also prescribe an antibiotic or an anti-inflammatory to be taken for several days.
Most patients can return to work 2-5 days after their female hair transplant. The transplanted hair will fall out – within 2-3 weeks after the surgery – which is completely normal. You should start noticing new hair within a few months. Some hair transplant surgeons prescribe minoxidil (Rogaine) to promote hair growth after hair transplant.
The price can be determined after the medical consultation as hair transplant prices vary depending on hair type and technique.
Generally, it is possible to dye the hair within 3 months. However, patients who do not want to take the risk can wait 6 months.
Since hair transplantation is a procedure performed under local anesthesia, the patient does not feel any pain.
Hair roots that will be transplanted, usually taken from the nape area. The hair roots in this region are generally known not to fall out. For this reason, the transplanted hair should not fall out after successful hair transplantation.
Medically, there is no age limit. However, experts recommend acting once the natural discharge has stopped or slowed down. People between the ages of 20 and 65 can benefit from hair transplantation.
