Female hair transplant
It is believed that hair loss and baldness are only visible in men, but there are also lots of women who complain of hair loss or thinning hair. Hair loss in women and men has a common side and there is absolutely a medical reason if there is hair loss in both sexes. Baldness that occurs in relation to stress, pregnancy, drugs or certain diseases, heals on its own in a short time when the cause of the hair loss disappears and the patient can recover his hair.
Common causes in female hair loss:
Androgenetic alopecia: hereditary type of hair loss, with a typical pattern of diffuse thinning on the central scalp. It is the most common type of hair loss. It occurs in about 20% of women.
Alopecia Areata: a recurrent disease of unknown cause, which causes an irregular loss of hair from the scalp and / or eyebrows.
Telogen Effluvium: a condition that causes hair loss all over the scalp, it can be chronic but it can also be acute immediately after a stressful event, such as high fever, severe nutritional deficiency and chronic blood loss due to heavy menstruation.
Anagen syndrome: a condition that causes hair loss before its normal growth cycle is completed. Hair can be pulled out just by normal combing or brushing.
Traction alopecia: over the time, tight topknots and tractions can cause permanent damages to hair and scalp and cause hair loss.
Chemicals: some chemicals used in hair styling can cause permanent damages to hair and scalp and cause hair loss.
Trichotillomania (compulsive hair plucking): a person feels forced to pull their hair into regular or bizarre patterns, resulting in traction alopecia and permanent hair loss.
Healing alopecia: hair loss due to scarring of the scalp area. Cicatricial alopecia generally involves the upper part of the scalp and occurs especially in women. This condition is frequent in Afro-Caribbean women and it is believed to be associated with tight weaves and "corn rowing" of the hair. A form of cicatricial alopecia can also occur in postmenopausal women, associated with inflammation of the hair follicles and subsequent scarring.
Hypothyroidism: thyroid deficiency can be associated with thinning, patchy hair loss.
Pregnancy: hormonal changes and pregnancy stress can cause temporary hair loss.
Treatment for female hair loss
Hair transplantation is almost always the best surgical choice for a woman. The procedure has a high success rate in women suffering from hair loss and the vast majority of women are very satisfied with their results.
Nevertheless, not all women are good candidates for hair transplantation. Since we usually deal with women who have only a dilution or who can hide their loss, it is rare for something to show up after the treatment. Of course we will advise you if we believe this is not in your case. Some women are better suited to surgical treatment for hair loss than others (and some are not suitable candidates at all). We will do our best to give you an image as realistic as possible, of the kind of result you can expect from your treatment.
About the treatment
Clinic Lus Fly technique, called FUE micro hair transplant, is used in hair transplantation in women. This technique consists of taking the hair follicles individually from the donor area and transplanting them into the required areas with the help of the punch. Since women have thinner strands of hair, the diameter of the punch varies between 0.6 or 0.75 mm.
If the number of transplants to be transplanted is less than 2000 and the transplant is performed more on the forehead area, there is no need for a complete shaving. Only the donor area is shaved in the form of a small crack, between the ears at the top of the back of the head.
If the number of grafts exceeds 2000 and the transplant area is at the top, a complete shaving may be necessary. Surely, the final decision is taken during the preparatory visit.
If you choose to have a hair transplant in Turkey, just stay in Istanbul for 3 days; There is no problem to go back to work 2 days after the transplant and you can get back to your daily routine.
Female hair loss can also be overlooked as a "normal" phenomenon. Gradual hair loss is often associated with ageing. Temporary hair loss is often associated with pregnancy. Very often, women have a hair loss that "runs in the family".
Hair loss in a woman should never be considered "normal"; however, the cause should be pursued until a diagnosis is established. Among the many causes of hair loss in women, only some of them, as ageing or hormonal changes associated with pregnancy or hereditary hair loss can be considered "normal". Our treatment is available also for hair loss due to these conditions and it should be considered when hair loss affects a woman's quality of life.
