It is estimated that one in five women experience some degree of hair loss, usually caused by aging, illness or hormonal changes after menopause. Women tend to experience a thinning of hair all over the scalp, rather than patchy hair loss as is common in men. To correct the problem, some women choose to wear wigs or add hair. Others have had some success using a topical prescription medication. The effectiveness of such medications varies in some patients and prevents further hair loss without stimulating any appreciable new growth. For those who are uncomfortable with any of these options, hair transplant surgery may be the solution.

Since mini-grafts are often the surgical treatment of choice for filling in thinning areas, good candidates for this procedure need to have dense hair growth at the back of the head. Mini-grafts are taken from this dense area and replanted into thinning areas to achieve a fuller appearance. Flap and tissue expansion procedures can sometimes be used if the person is judged to be a good candidate.

If you are considering a hair transplant procedure, it is important to understand that you will not have the coverage you had before hair loss, but surgery can camouflage thin areas and give you more fullness.

Is Hair Transplantation an Option for Women? What is the Success Rate?

International studies have shown that the success of female hair transplants is lower than that of men. This is because although female hair loss is similar to male hair loss, it is completely different. Therefore, women need a special hair transplant operation. If a surgeon experienced in female hair transplantation performs this procedure, the success rate can reach 99%. At Hermest Clinic, we have a special team experienced in female hair transplantation treatment.

What Are the Differences Between Male and Female Hair Transplantation?

In most cases, women experience hair loss from the front and center. The hair between the two ears often does not fall out and partial hair loss occurs instead of complete hair loss.
The first wash after female hair transplantation is done by the clinic 3 days after the operation. The patient will wash her hair at home for the next 10 days following the surgeon's instructions. After 2 weeks there will be shock shedding (transplanted hair loss). 3 months after the operation, new hair starts to grow and the hair becomes denser. At the end of the 8th-12th months, the hair will grow in the most dense and voluminous form.
However, unlike men, hair loss in women may be due to anemia or goiter disease. In these cases, hair transplantation will not provide any benefit without treating the medical problem. The transplanted hair will fall out again.
