Female & Women's Hair Transplant
A female hair transplant in Turkey is the best option if a woman is having loss or weakening problems with her hair. Contrary to the common believe, hair loss and also baldness is not just a problem related to men, but also many women complain about it. And as men, there is always an underlying medical reason behind.
Hair loss caused by the stress, pregnancy, medication or some diseases heals on its own, so in a short time once the triggering reason disappears the patient can recover her hair again. Gradual hair loss is also usually associated with ageing, or even due to genetic patterns in her family.
However hair loss in a woman should never be considered as something "normal", but something due to a medical cause that should be pursued until a diagnosis is established, especially when the hair loss becomes excessive and affects the woman’s quality of life. So, a hair transplant for women can be an appropriate solution when the hair loss generates an undesirable change, affecting specially at the patient's psychology.
Causes of female hair loss
The Ludwig Scale (below) identifies the different types of female hair loss, which main causes of can be as follows:
It´s an hereditary pattern hair loss with a typical pattern of diffuse thinning over the central scalp. It is the most common type of hair loss and occurs in about 20% of women.
It´s a recurrent disease of unknown cause, that results in patchy loss of hair from the scalp and/or the eyebrows.
It´s a condition that causes shedding of hair over the entire scalp. It may be chronic but also be a temporary phenomenon due to a stressful event, high fever, severe dietary deficiency, or chronic blood loss from heavy menstruation.
Loose anagen syndrome
It´s a condition that causes hair to shed before its normal growth cycle is completed. In this cases the hair can be pulled out easily, simply by normal combing or brushing.
A tight braiding and cornrowing may, over time, cause permanent damage to the hair and the scalp and as result produce a hair loss.
Some chemicals used in hair styling can, over time, cause permanent damage to the hair and the scalp and result in hair loss.
Trichotillomania (compulsive hair plucking)
It happens when a person feels compelled to pluck hair in regular or bizarre patterns, resulting over time in traction alopecia and a permanent hair loss.
It´s a hair loss due to scarring in the scalp area. Scarring alopecia typically involves the top of the scalp and occurs predominantly in women. This condition is common in Afro-Caribbean women and is believed to be associated with persistent tight braiding or "cornrowing" of the hair. Some form of scarring alopecia may also occur in postmenopausal women: in this case it´s associated with inflammation of hair follicles and subsequent scarring.
A thyroid deficiency can be associated with thinning, patchy hair loss.
Hormonal changes and the stress of pregnancy may cause temporary hair loss.
Why undergo a women´s hair transplant in Turkey?
As we mentioned before, stress, pregnancy, some medical treatments or certain diseases may cause some transitional hair loss or even baldness, but as soon as the reason that triggers the weakening or loss of hair disappears, the woman completely recovers her hair.
On other occasions, female alopecia can be considered as a normal phenomenon of little concern, especially if the loss occurs gradually as a result of the aging process or due to family genetics. In these cases, no professional intervention could be necessary.
In fact, there are many other causes that can lead to hair loss and weakening among the female population: hormonal disorders, organic changes due to pregnancy, chronic diseases, nerves, thyroid problems, and so on.
An expert assessment is always necessary in all of this cases in order to make a decision and finally choose the best treatment option for the patient: and if the solution comes from a hair implant, the best choice always will be a female hair transplant in Turkey, taking into account the high quality of the medical services in the country and the low cost of a hair transplant in Turkey for women.

How is the hair transplant for women in Turkey performed?
When performing a hair transplant for women we use a technique called micro FUE hair transplantation. It consists of taking hair follicles individually from the donor site and transplant them on the required areas with the help of a punch. Since women have thinner hair strands than men, punch´s diameter varies between 0,6 to 0,75 mm.
If the number of grafts to be transplanted is less than 2000 and the transplantation is performed mainly in the forehead line, complete hair shaving is not required: in this case only the donor site is shaved in the shape of a small split between both ears on the upper side of the nape. However, if the number of grafts exceeds 2000 and the transplant area is on the top side, a complete shaving might be required.
