What Is Hair Transplantation For Women

Hair transplantation is indeed more associated with men than women, but it is also a common practice for women. Hair loss condition is a more common hair problem for women than one would ever think. It may even cause psychological issues for women. Hair loss or hair thinning for women can be treated easily nowadays using various methods in the cosmetic field. 

There are many hair loss treatments for women, such as serums, lotions, and hair laser therapies, to support hair growth. However, depending on the type of hair loss and the reason behind the thinning of the hair, sometimes the treatments may not give results.

Hair transplant aids when hair loss treatments like serums and lotions do not work. At Turkeyana, we use the most developed and approved successful methods for women’s hair transplantation, and experts conduct these operations.

Why Would Women Face Hair Loss

There may be several reasons for female pattern hair loss. These reasons vary from one person to another since environmental and genetic factors work differently for each person. Some of the reasons are as follows:

  1. Hormonal changes. Especially during pregnancy, after childbirth, and menopause.
  2. Hair loss due to stress.
  3. Some medications and treatments the patient has gone through will cause hair thinning or even baldness.
  4. Excessive blood loss during menstruation
  5. Female or male pattern baldness in the family.
  6. Aging.
  7. Genetics.

Hair Transplant Techniques For Women

Hair transplantation operations for women are different from those for men. Hair transplantation for men involves more techniques, through which the patient can choose the method he desires in coordination with the treating physician, who helps him select the technique that suits his condition and needs.

But hair transplantation for women requires only one technique, and this technique is the most suitable for hair transplantation in women because it does not require shaving the entire hair on the head, and it gives the areas to be treated the necessary density of women’s hair. This technique is the direct hair transplantation technique, using the Choi pen technique, also known as the DHI technique.

The DHI technique is considered one of the latest techniques in hair transplantation and the most effective, through which the hair in the donor area is shaved only while preserving the entire head of hair. It also allows the doctor to open channels and implant grafts simultaneously and close to each other, giving the treated area high density. For this reason, this technique is considered the most suitable for hair transplantation in women.

Hair Transplant Candidates

  1. Those who suffer from severe hair thinning, severe hair loss, and hereditary baldness.
  2. Those who have a strong and sufficient donor area.
  3. Those who enjoy good general health.
  4. Those who do not suffer from skin diseases that hinder hair transplantation, such as eczema, alopecia, etc
  5. Those who do not suffer from active hormonal causes and problems because treating them is very necessary before resorting to transplantation.
  6. Those who are within the appropriate age group for hair transplantation aged 25 to 60 years.
