Hair Transplants for Women
The only permanent hair restoration technique.
Hair transplants are the only permanent solution for hair restoration, so they are a very intriguing option for patients. A hair transplant is a minor surgical procedure where hair follicles are removed from the back of the scalp and planted into desired areas on top of the scalp.
The reason a hair transplant is considered a permanent hair loss solution is because historically it has been used to treat male pattern hair loss, and the hair in the back of the scalp is typically stable hair. The vast majority of men never lost that hair even when they lost the hair on the top of their head. This stable hair is considered the donor area and when transplanted to other areas of the head it will stay stable and typically will not be lost in the future.
However, female pattern hair loss is different than male pattern hair loss and is more diffuse, meaning the hair loss occurs throughout the scalp. This means that with female pattern hair loss, the donor area may be affected and not all women will be good candidates for a hair transplant, but some women still are great candidates.
