Main Causes of Hair Loss Resulting in a Hair Transplant
Traction loss – many women suffer from traction hair loss. This being a result of hairdressing procedures or incorrect hair styling. What ever the cause, the hair shed will be permanent. Suitability on women’s hair surgery will be how severe the hair loss is. Remember, there must be sufficient unaffected hair to transfer to the affected site. Traction hair loss is solely due to the epilation of hair and nothing to do with nutrition or hormonal imbalances.
Female Pattern Baldness (FPB) (androgenetic) – women’s hair surgery is the only true way of giving back hair to a female who is suffering from such a condition. However, there are restrictions. Severity is of course a consideration along with how much donor hair there is. It is of the upmost importance to have this condition correctly diagnosed. I have seen hundreds of female patients who have been told they have FPB when in fact they have a chronic hair loss condition that is nothing to do with androgens. Women’s hair surgery in this case would not be suitable. We are highly trained Trichologist who know how to diagnose correctly.
Plastic surgery patients – those women who have had plastic surgery and are concerned about the incision sites. Hair may be transferred to hide scar tissue. Women’s hair surgery is a suitable option in this case.
Burns and Scars – Women’s hair surgery may be an option in cases of burns or scar victims. However, this will be dependant on the severity of the skin damage and donor hair available.
Alopecia Areata – please note that it unlikely that any surgery can be completed on a patient with Alopecia Areata. Some say that if you haven’t suffered from the condition for 12 months then this is ok. Well in my view it’s not. If you would like to speak with us please feel free to give us a ring and we can askew any questions that you have.
Different methods of women’s hair surgery – There are two main types of surgery available. FUE (follicular unit extraction) and FUT (follicular unit transplantation). If you click on the heads you will be taken to a more in depth explanation of each type of hair transplant.
Considered the most advanced method of women’s hair surgery. A highly technical procedure where hair is removed from the donor site with specialist instruments (less that 1mm). Hair is then transplanted. Once transferred the hair will grow quite normally. Hairs may be implanted in groups of 1-4 hairs depending on the thickness required and donor site amount. This method had the fastest recover time. Surgical procedure does not require overnight stays. Patients will be given a local anaesthetic and will be fully awake throughout the procedure. For women’s hair surgery this is really the best method. Hair will be taken from a vast area instead of the localised FUT method.
a strip of skin is taken from the back of the head. Donor Size and amount of hairs will vary. The skin will contain the hair awaiting transplantation. Trained technicians will dissect the hair ready for the surgeon to implant in the area required. The wound will be sown but a linear scar will remain. It is fair to say this would not be visible as the gap would be closed and surrounding hair would amply cover this up.
Most Women prefer this method. There is no need to shave the head at the donor site. The results are the same. Recovery time for the scare to heal is around 5 weeks. However, you will be able to go back to work within a few days. We recommend taking a week off to relax.
