Female alopecia has very different feattures compared to male alopecia; therefore, extra precautions are applied for this proceduret.
The problem of hair loss can be resolved with this surgery, so no need to worry anymore. Let’s learn about the advantages and details of women’s hair transplantation from Dr. Ryu at Grand Hair Transplantation Center; very well known for women’s hair transplantation.
What is Women’s Hair Transplantation Center for?
Women’s Hair Transplantation Center treats primarily female alopecia (hair loss)/ atrichia that are differentiated from the existing hair transplantation center which only treats baldness for men.
What are the characteristics of feminine alopecia?
Feminine alopecia refers to women who experience ‘Androgenetic alopecia’ condition. It is caused from the imbalance of hormones, stress over pregnancy, childbirth, menopause, overdose of contraceptives, excessive dieting etc., rather than hereditary causes like in the case of masculine alopecia. With women, there are many cases involving exposed scalp due to the loss of hair in the center of the head even though the hairline is not receding, unlike in cases of masculine alopecia.
What are the treatments for feminine alopecia (hair loss)?
Treatment options for female alopecia are medication, hair transplant, and hair care. A drug treatment ‘Propecia’ is very effective in cases of male alopecia; however, it cannot be used on women due to the balance of hormones. Thus, the only treatment option for women is ‘autologous hair transplantation’ combined with appropriate hair care. Because of these differences, the treatment for male alopecia cannot be applied to women, thus Women’s Hair Transplantation Center can be a great help to women.
What is the difference between autologous hair transplantation for women and men in terms of surgical procedure?
Basically, women’s hair is much thinner than men’s; therefore, depending on hair follicle, transplant alone would produce an insufficient looking result as well as decrease the probability of engraftment. Thus, Single Hair Transplant should be performed in addition to the follicle transplant in order for more satisfactory results. By separating each follicle under a microscope, the probability of engraftment increases remarkably. Last year’s statistics indicated that Grand Women’s Hair Transplantation Center showed a remarkable rate of over 35% of engraftment.
What points need to be considered for hair loss in women?
Unlike men who are satisfied with the result of overcoming baldness alone, various factors play into account for satisfaction from women, including hair line, shape of forehead, facial proportion, position of eyebrows etc. All these factors need to be considered comprehensively for hair loss in women and this is what makes Grand Women’s Hair Transplantation Center one of the greatest options available.
Is atrichia treatable?
Symptoms of atrichia can be found on most women who go through pregnancy and childbirth repeatedly. However, most of these women decide not to be treated due to privacy reasons.
It was recently discovered that atrichia is 100 percent treatable with autologouus hair transplant. The number of women looking to be treated is rising among those who go through pudendal surgery or varginoplasty. Atrichia has very different features from general hair transplant though, so a different surgical technique needs to be applied. If all these matters are considered during treatment, it is not difficult to resolve the issue!
