Women’s Hair Transplants
While hair transplants are frequently thought of as a technique for men, almost a third of our hair restoration patients are women. In basic terms, a hair transplant involves transposing hair from the back of the scalp (the donor site) and placing it in the front or mid portion of the scalp where the hair has fallen out. The technique of hair transplantation in women is very similar to that performed for men but there are some subtle differences as well. For example, a women’s natural hair is often more susceptible to “shock loss” if the transplant is performed too aggressively. In addition, the softer quality of the donor hair in some women will favor the use of slightly larger grafts in some patients to provide increased density yet still maintain a completely natural result. Your individual consultation will provide you with an understanding of your individual options to obtain the best possible hair restoration result.
