How is hair transplant for women? - Hair transplant cost for women\n

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.

What are the causes of hair loss in women?

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:

  • Hormonal imbalance: During periods when hormones change, such as pregnancy and menopause, large-scale hair loss may occur.
  • Stress: When stress increases, both body and hair are adversely affected.
  • Malnutrition: Hair loss may occur due to wrong and irregular nutrition.
  • Vitamin deficiency: Lack of some vitamins in the body can cause hair loss.
  • Genetic factors: Genetic predisposition to hair loss is a serious factor. Therefore, female pattern baldness may occur.
  • Health and medical conditions: Thyroid, skin problems and autoimmune diseases can also cause hair loss.
  •  Medications: Hair loss may also occur as a side effect of the medications used. At the same time, birth control drugs cause this. This is due to changes in estrogen and progesterone levels.
  • Age: After a certain age, there is an increase in hair loss.
  • Hairstyle: Gathering the hair tightly, tight braids can cause hair loss. At the same time, some chemicals used cause increased hair loss.

Diagnosing Hair Loss in Women – Type of Hair Loss

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.

Ludwig scale

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.

Advantages of Hair Transplant for Women

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.

Is there a difference between male and female hair transplantation?

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.

How is hair transplant for women?

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:

  • First, the problem is determined. After this stage, the specialist doctor will decide which area will be the donor area.
  • The donor and recipient areas will be anaesthetized with local anesthesia to avoid pain.
  • Hair follicles will be collected from the donor area and transplanted to the recipient area one by one.

Hair transplantation is a painless and fast procedure that gives permanent results.

Which technique should be used in hair transplant for women? Sapphire FUE vs DHI

Today, the most applied hair transplantation techniques are Sapphire FUE and DHI hair transplant techniques. These techniques differ in the way they are applied.

  • Sapphire FUE hair transplant is the process of planting the grafts in the recipient area by opening three-dimensional channels with sapphire-tipped blades after the grafts are collected from the donor area. The DHI procedure, on the other hand, is the simultaneous grooving and transplanting of the grafts into the recipient area, after the grafts are collected from the donor area and placed in the pen called CHOI.
  • When applying the Sapphire FUE technique, the hair should be shaved. In DHI hair transplantation, unshaven hair transplantation can be performed.
  • Sapphire FUE is applied to areas with alopecia and baldness, while DHI is applied to make sparse areas look more intense.

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.

DHI hair transplantation technique for women (Unshaven hair transplantation)

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;

  • First, local anesthesia is applied so that the person does not feel pain.
  • Healthy hair follicles are collected from the donor area with micro punches.
  • The collected grafts are placed in the CHOI pen, and grooving and grafting are done at the same time.

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.
