Thanks to the recently developed treatment techniques, female hair transplantation is becoming more and more common among women.
Treatments have become more accessible and cost-effective and less invasive. While the old FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation) method leaves very large scars between the area spread between the two ears, the current FUE and DHI methods provide healthier results and a much healthier healing process without leaving any traces.
Hair loss is a common problem in men, but women, too, experience the same problem from time to time. The causes of women’s hair problems may differ from men’s. Hair transplantation can produce successful results in these cases after the real cause of hair loss is determined.
Female hair transplantation is almost the same as the male hair transplantation procedure. The biggest advantage of female hair transplantation is that women have hair long. Before the hair transplantation procedure, just a window is opened in the middle part for hair extraction without a need to completely shave the scalp as different from the male hair transplantation. The remaining hair appears to have never been treated, closing the extraction area completely. Hence, women can immediately return to their social or business life.
Female hair transplantation operations are performed in the following cases:
Hair transplantation is a surgical procedure. Therefore, it should be done under the supervision of a doctor with the support of a healthcare professional specialized in the relevant field.
Anyone over 18 who has a hair problem due to age, hormonal and genetic disorder/condition can have hair transplantation.
The most curious question asked by hair transplant patients is the duration of this procedure. The duration of the operation depends on the patency of the patient and the number of grafts to be implanted. However, hair transplantation procedures take an average of 7-8 hours.
Hair transplant surgery consists of two stages. The first stage is the removal of hair follicles as much as the planned number of grafts from the nape, and the second stage is the transfer of these hair follicles to the targeted area. The latest and most common technology still applied in the extraction stage is the “Micro Motor” technique.The most common and advanced technology used in follicle transplantation is the “DHI Pen technique”.
