Hair loss and baldness are not just a problem that affects men. A great majority of women may experience periodic hair loss problems, and even in some periods, there is serious hair loss. Hair loss can be a serious problem that affects self-confidence for women. As in men, the source of the problem must be found first, and then treatment should be applied to it. If hair loss in women has reached serious dimensions and regional baldness is observed, the only solution is to have female hair transplantation.
There are many different reasons for hair loss in women. The most common is female pattern baldness or androgenetic alopecia. At the same time, hormonal changes, stress, malnutrition, genetic effects, and various diseases can cause this problem. Some of these reasons are:
Hair loss occurs in women in their 20s. 40% of these spills are due to hormonal changes. Although baldness is more common in men, many women are also affected by it.
The Ludwig scale was developed by Dr Erich Ludwig to determine the level of baldness in women. According to this scale, it is possible to measure the progression of alopecia. Androgenetic alopecia in women usually begins with the opening of the hairline on the top of the head. According to the progress of this opening, the level of baldness is determined.
According to the Ludwig scale, hair loss occurs in 3 different stages. The hair transplantation technique to be applied can be determined according to these stages.
Stage 1: Mild Spill
At this stage, a slight opening occurs in the hairline.
Stage 2: Moderate Spill
At this stage, there is a visible opening in the hairline. The spill has reached a disturbing level.
Stage 3: Severe Spill
There is baldness on the top of the head.
The best way to determine the type of hair loss in women is to consult a specialist. Hair loss may be due to androgenetic, hormonal or other reasons. To diagnose this, first of all, a blood test should be done. After the type of hair loss is finalized, the specialist doctor should decide on the treatment. If it is a problem that cannot be solved with treatment, hair transplantation is the best option.
1. It provides a natural look.
One of the benefits of hair transplant for women is that it gives a natural look. Since your hair is transplanted, the colour and texture of your hair will naturally match.
2. There is an increase in self-confidence.
The second advantage of hair transplant for women is the positive change in self-confidence. Especially when hair loss, which affects the psychology of women more, is resolved thanks to hair transplantation, an increase in self-confidence is observed.
3. Transplanted hair is less likely to fall out.
Since the hair to be transplanted uses the parts of the head that are difficult to shed, such as the sides and back, the probability of hair loss after transplantation is low.
Since the hair transplanted with hair transplantation will continue to grow, the problem of hair thinning can be completely solved.
There are two different aspects of hair transplantation in men and hair transplant for women:
1. Spill areas:
The areas where women and men experience hair loss may differ. Women generally experience hair loss in the front and middle hairline. Men, on the other hand, experience hair loss mainly on the forehead line and peak. Accordingly, the technique to be applied in hair transplantation and the number of grafts to be transplanted may change.
2. Donor areas:
The donor areas of men and women may be different. In men, the donor area is the nape of the head, where there is hair resistant to the hormone dihydrotestosterone. In women, the donor area is determined as a result of various analyzes, since hair loss may occur in every part of the hair.
Hair transplant for women is a simple procedure. Hair transplantation is a minimally invasive and slightly painful operation and it takes one day to return to your normal life. The hair transplantation process proceeds as follows:
Hair transplantation is a painless and fast procedure that gives permanent results.
Today, the most applied hair transplantation techniques are Sapphire FUE and DHI hair transplant techniques. These techniques differ in the way they are applied.
Both options give permanent results, less tissue deformation and no scarring. Depending on the degree of hair loss, one of two techniques can be applied in women.
Most women prefer the DHI hair transplant technique because it does not require shaving. Compared to the Sapphire FUE technique, DHI is different in application, contains fewer steps and does not require shaving. Only the donor area is shaved so that it can be covered with other hair.
DHI hair transplantation process;
The number of grafts that need to be collected depends on the severity of the hair loss. In DHI hair transplantation, approximately 2500-3500 grafts can be transplanted in a 6-8 hour operation period.
