Female hair transplant
Female pattern baldness and hair transplant
As you may know, hair loss is less common among women than men, but it can still occur. Losing a few hairs a day is normal for women, but when bald patches appear on the head or hair becomes thinner, this may indicate baldness with a female pattern.
Loss of 50 to 100 hairs per day is normal, but new hair growth should replace lost hair. If a person has female pattern hair loss, hair loss will not be replaced by new hair.
What is female pattern baldness?
Today, both men and women experience hair loss, but some hair loss is specific to men and may look different.
Female pattern baldness is a type of hair loss that affects women. In medical science, it is called androgenic alopecia.
Female pattern baldness can be affect on people’s self-esteem.
The first sign of female pattern baldness is thinning hair that affects the volume of their hair. Although the hairline does not go back in this condition, the scalp skin is clearly visible.
Female pattern baldness increases with aging, and less than 50% of women retain their hair throughout their lives.
Female pattern baldness increases with aging and middle age. However, it can also start at a young age. Such conditions often develop after menopause, and hormonal changes can be one of the factors. Because during menopause, the male and female hormones is imbalanced. Uncontrolled levels of male androgens, especially dihydrotestosterone, slow down the regrowth cycle of lost hair as well as it cause the growth of thinning hair.
Genetics is also an important factor in the development of such conditions. This means that such hair loss is seen in the family and women can inherit the hair loss gene from both parents.
On the other hand, you know that androgen is a hormone that plays a role in baldness, and background of diseases such as pituitary and ovarian tumors can also be other causes of hair loss by affecting this hormone.
Also, low levels of estrogen, iron deficiency, malnutrition, UV damage, some chemicals such as hair dye, etc. can be factors that hair loss in women.
Hair transplantation …
As you know, natural hair transplantation is currently the only way to treat and repair lost hair. This transplant can be done in different areas such as scalp, eyebrows, beard, mustache, eyelashes as well as scar areas.
Nowadays, hair transplantation is possible with several methods like FUT, FIT and combination methods (combination of FIT and FUT methods).
1) FUT method:
In the FUT method, which is known as the strip harvesting method, a strip is harvested from the hair donor tissue (hair bank) and then all the grafts in the strip are removed and implanted in the bald areas of the scalp. Due to simultaneous harvesting, all grafts were available.
For this reason, in the fut method, the number of grafts that can be harvested in hair bank area is approximately 3 to 4 times more than that of the FIT method.
2) FIT method:
In FIT method, by using a round punching machine, the grafts are selectively and randomly removed from the hair bank and then implanted in the bald area.
In the FIT method, the hair transplant was non-invasive. So the skin heals faster. However, due to the limited collection from the hair bank, the transplant operation may be performed in two or more stages.
To harvest in the later stages of the transplant, the hair bank will repair and regenerate at least 6 months.
Some people need to have hair transplant in the second stage due to the extent of baldness. But in some cases patients are not in ideal conditions to have the hair transplant again.
Occupation and job environment, travel from the city or even another country, lack of time, travel and treatment payment, another recovery period, and etc. are conditions that make the decision to plan for another travel for second and third times much harder, and the patient will regret to have hair transplant and they won’t get the desirable result.
Therefore, we offer you a combined method to facilitate and eliminate the process of two or more hair transplants stages.
3) Combined method:
In this method, on the first day, the hair transplant is performed by FUT method and in the next sessions, it is performed by FIT method for hair transplantation.
It should be noted that the combined method will give you the best and fastest results.
Which women are best candidates for hair transplants?
People can see the final results of hair transplantation if they have good conditions to use different hair transplantation methods. One of the most important conditions for a hair transplant is to have a sufficient hair bank, because in all hair transplant procedures, specialists must transfer healthy follicles from back of the head to the bald areas.
To use the hair transplant method, the patient must have inherited hair loss, because there are currently more suitable and less expensive methods for treating other types of hair loss. Unfortunately, some hair loss cannot be treated using various methods and even hair transplantation, the most common of which is alopecia hair loss.
The following people are also good candidates for hair transplants:
- Women with thin hair
- Women whom their hair loss is due to androgenetic
- All those who have lost a large volume of their hair due to burns or physical injuries to the head.
Which women are not a good candidate for hair transplantation?
- Pregnant women
- women who do not have much hair to donate and cannot use their own hair for implantation in other areas.
- Women who have colloidal scars on their head due to surgery or physical injuries.
- Women who lost their hairs due to chemotherapy drugs.
- They should not have skin disease or alopecia, people with alopecia areata should not have hair transplants. These people do not have a proper hair bank, so they are not a good candidate for hair transplants and they just waste their time and money.
