Hair transplant women

At the Aesthetic Surgery Center, we distinguish women who experience hair loss and are in need of a hair transplant women which is a different approach than for men. Compared to men, hair loss in women reveals in different patterns. Usually it is more diffuse, and it can appear at every age. In men, there usually is a strong genetic pattern, whereas in women other basic conditions play an important role in thinning of the hair.

Hair loss in women is an upsetting condition that can be treated medically or surgically. For women, a thorough disease specific medical evaluation is necessary in treating hair disorders with a trained medical hair specialist. Women typically notice hair loss during the menopausal period with reduced hair density usually in the middle of the scalp that thins laterally. The hair is often miniaturized because of a longer resting telogen phase. Rarely hair loss occurs in the frontal hairline.

The good news for women is female patterned hair loss can be cured successfully medically or surgically. This fact is confirmed by recent research conducted by the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery. In their recent studies they estimate more women are being treated for hair loss than in the past decade. In 2015, 20% of hair surgery patients were women up from 14% in 2013.
