Hair Transplant For Women: Benefits, Types, And Recovery

Hair transplant for women is a procedure amplifying in popularity among the hair loss community. Although hair loss is a condition most people attribute to males, pattern baldness is a condition that women also suffer from.
NHS England estimates that 50% of women over the age of 65 experience hair loss and thinning. Something that genetics or testosterone levels can attribute to.
Women can experience hair loss from conditions like PCOS, sometimes side effects of medications, or genetics.

What Is A Hair Transplant?

A hair transplant is a surgical hair restoration technique that uses your own hair to fill bald areas on your scalp. There are many techniques for it, some cause severe side effects like the FUT and some have a pleasant impact like the FUE.  Hair transplants are only an option in the case of permanent hair loss. Consider other alternatives to restore temporary hair loss.

The results are natural and permanent. Which is a primary reason behind the prevalence of the procedure. Hair transplant is a suitable baldness cure for a large category of candidates. But there are factors that your surgeon must screen you for before surgery.

How Does Hair Transplant For Women Work?

Most hair loss cases have an isolated area of hair loss. This can be due to physical trauma, harmful styling, or even hormones. Hair loss tends to be localized in one area. And hair transplants use the hair from the stable areas to move them to the problem regions. The method of hair transplant differs based on technique. In the FUE hair transplant for example, your surgeon will remove the hair follicles one by one. And once the right number is available, they implant these follicular units one by one into the recipient site.

The hair follicles adapt to their new place and continue to grow and produce hair. Unlike, men, hair transplant for women has a more restricted pool of candidacy.

what are the appropriate Techniques

There are several methods of hair transplantation such as traditional FUE, Sapphire FUE, and DHI FUE. For hair transplant for women, sapphire FUE is the better option. The technique uses sapphire excellence to perform the surgery. And this creates instruments that are precise and transparent. And in turn surgeons gain the ability to open channels on the recipient sites with more accuracy and precision.

This makes sapphire FUE suitable for both advanced hair loss or non-advanced hair loss. As the properties of the technique can allow it to avoid damaging neighbor hair.

Can Women Have Hair Transplant?

Hair transplant for women or for men works on a set of requirements which we will discuss below. Not every hair loss patient is a suitable candidate for hair transplant.

Type Of  Hair Loss

Even though many hair loss classes are fit for hair transplant, you must have enough donor regions. Which are regions of stable growth from which your surgeon takes follicular units to implant in bald areas.

  • Pattern baldness: Women with this type of hair loss have to have a predictable pattern of hair loss. The more common diffuse pattern hair loss is not suitable for hair transplants. This is because diffuse pattern hair loss does not have stable regions of donor hair. But only a professional can assess your hair loss pattern to give you a final answer.
  • Traction alopecia: Traction alopecia is suitable for hair transplant for women. This category of hair loss comes from harmful styling. In  most cases it is not permanent. But if it is, hair transplants can easily reverse it if you have sufficient donor regions.
  • Traumatic Alopecia: This is hair loss due to physical trauma to the scalp such as burns. And most cases are suitable candidates for hair transplant for women. But the aspect to put focus on is the quality and quantity of your donor regions.


Hair transplant has no downtime. You can resume your regular activities with slight changes. You will for a few weeks have to sleep in an inclined position. And among the aftercare instructions, you will have to avoid sunlight, shaving, and some other activity which you can find in detail here.

Growth will take place gradually. Likewise every month will carry out with it some new development. You will have your complete final results within 12 months.
