Female Hair Transplant

Female Hair Transplant

Very few dermatological problems have the emotional implications as the chronic complaint of hair loss. For men hair loss because of pattern baldness is a very common problem and is often seen as the mark of maturity and wisdom but on the other hand, hair loss in females is considered a significant problem. Hair loss in females is neither culturally acceptable nor considered as beautiful by societal standards.  Unfortunately, many women fail to recognize hair loss until the time they are no longer able to style their hair as before and are tired of sweeping the hair strands off the floor.

The incidence of hair loss is lesser in women than in men but the chances of suffering from alopecia increases with age. Women are generally hesitant in seeking hair fall treatments because of two reasons, one is that it is a common misconception that effective hair transplants and other treatments work only for men and secondly women are scared to admit and acknowledge the problem an often resort to colouring and styling rather than treat problem. The best way to alleviate the distress and shame related to hair loss is to seek effective treatment by expert hair specialists in India.  The reality is that simple hair loss treatments for females can help improve their quality of life and overcome the feeling of shyness and inferiority.

Hair fall treatments for women and men are one of the oldest known medical professions in the world. The remarkable advances in medical treatments, hair transplant procedures, and hair cosmetics have made hair treatments an effective and mazing success.  Hair fall in women happens in a different pattern than men; women generally see a diffusive thinning rather than frank baldness on the scalp.

Hair fall in women can be because of many reasons such as:

  • Hereditary characteristics cause androgenetic alopecia. In this condition the hair starts to thin from the hair part and usually looks like hair loss in Christmas tree pattern from the top.
  • Hair thinning because of medications of hormonal disturbances such as thyroid disorders or mensural problems.
  • Pregnancy
  • PCOD/PCOS
  • Chemotherapy
  • Iron deficiency
  • Stress
  • Even Weight loss can cause hair fall

The cause of hair fall in women can be multifactorial. It is prudent to seek a hair fall treatment as soon as possible because the more hair you lose the more difficult it is to revive the hair follicles back to life. You should pay a special attention to the first indications of hair falls such as:

  • Diffuse thinning
  • A receding hairline
  • Loss of sideburns
  • Overly thin eyebrows
  • Scarring from previous plastic surgeries on scalp

At The Esthetic Clinics India, we provide complete diagnostic workups to make an individualized treatment plan that includes surgical and medical therapies to treat hair fall in women. When the other treatments do not work the hair transplant is suggested by the best hair doctors in Mumbai. Hair transplant in women can be done in the following cases:

  • They have an advanced stage of alopecia in some part of the scalp because of burn, surgery, accident or trauma
  • The advanced stage of female pattern baldness is not manageable by regular medicine usage
  • Traction alopecia
  • Scaring alopecia that has been stabilized after twelve months
  • Hair loss in eyebrows and eyelashes
  • Women with alopecia marginalis
  • The donor area is healthy and not affected by androgenetic alopecia

Benefits of Hair transplantation in women

Female hair transplant is a very rewarding procedure and gives more than 60-80% recovery of the ‘before’ hairstyle. The multitude of benefits of hair transplant procedure for women include

  • The women will be able to get natural and healthy hair after hair transplant
  • Women can grow longer hair and style them in any manner that they want
  • Women overcome the distress caused because of hair fall
  • Transplanted hairs grow in a natural manner and you will be able to do all the regular activities like strenuous workout, dancing, swimming and even colour and perm the regrown hair.

Female Hair transplantation procedures

 The hair transplantation procedure for women doesn’t differ from that of men. There are two popular techniques used i.e. FUT and FUE. The type of technique is selected on the basis of the type of hair loss that the woman is affected by.

However, the selection of an experienced and expert hair transplant surgeon in India for female hair transplant is very important because unlike men, in women there is no permanent donor region. Since the hair loss happens in a diffusing manner, female hair transplant procedures are more complicated and need great precision on the surgeon’s part. Therefore, you need a hair regrowth treatment expert who has specifically done female hair transplant surgeries in India and achieved successful results.  You can even ask to look at before and after photos at the clinic to see what results you can expect.

A careful preoperative evaluation, donor, and recipient site evaluation will help the surgeon plan the female hair transplant procedure. The first key step that the surgeon will take is

  • Check the donor site for suitability of transplantation: The follicular unit density, the diameter of the hair shaft, and the colour, texture and wave of the hair.
  • The surgeon will also check for the follicular unit density. The minimum requirement for successful hair transplant is average 2 to 3 hairs per follicular unit.
  • Check the recipient site and mark the balding areas. The colour of the scalp and hair plays an important role in the outcome of the surgery.

FUT or FUE hair transplantation procedures

The procedure for hair transplant in India involves three major steps

  • Harvesting the hair follicles from the donor area. This is usually done from the back or sides of the scalp.
  • Transplanting the grafts. Top hair transplantations surgeons in India implant the grafts in small incisions made in the recipient area in such a way that the implanted hair takes the right angle and direction of the existing hair without damaging the hair growth.
  • The transplanted hair fall out after 3 weeks of the surgery and the new hair grow after four months. Therefore, it is necessary to follow the post-operative guidelines.

The FUT or strip harvesting method of hair transplant in India the surgeon will take a strip of hair from the donor portion for follicular extraction. The procedure leaves behind a very thin liner scar.  In FUE hair transplant procedure in India individual follicular units are taken from the safe areas of the scalp and implanted in the recipient area. The extent of hair loss on the scalp determines the type of hair transplant surgery used by best hair transplant surgeons in India.  Modern advanced techniques used by The Esthetic Clinics India coupled with the skilled hands of the top hair transplant surgeon in India ensures that the hair growth happens without damaging the growth of existing hair and the thinning region converts into highly dense area of the scalp.

At The Esthetic Clinics, India, women undergoing hair transplant procedure do not need to shave off their head or trim the hair because we use methods like the no shave FUE hair transplant and using robotic hair transplants using Punch Hair Matic Hair Robot for micro grafting to make sure that the hair transplant procedure is safer, faster and produces precise results.  The newly transplanted follicular units will grow new strands of hair about 2 months after the procedure and full growth can be seen 8-10 months after the procedure.  In the meantime the hair expert’s advice the patients to maintain a healthy diet and exercise regularly to ensure good blood supply to the hair follicles.

Female Hair Transplant Cost in India

The cost of female hair transplant in Mumbai depends on the number of grafts that the patient requires. The other factors that affect the price of hair transplant in India are

  • The Hair transplant surgeon: The hair transplant surgeons in India who are considered experts in the field costs more than those who are not so established. Higher cost does not necessarily mean better result; therefore, it is important to search the surgeon and get treatment done carefully.
  • Location: The price of hair transplants in India is higher in areas where the cost of living is high. The cost of hair transplant is also affected by the competition in the area.
  • Travel cost: For international patients and patients who have to travel to the major cities to avail the hair transplant procedures by suitably qualified hair transplant surgeon; the travel cost becomes an inclusion in the total price of hair transplant procedure.
