The term hair transplant is generally used for the male pattern baldness concern and a bit rare in the case of a female hair loss as women doesn’t show the complete state of baldness like men and the female pattern of baldness due to the hereditary cause is treated with the hair restoration procedure to some extent. The significant role of female transplant is mainly in achieving the aesthetic beauty back with the natural effect of regrowth of hair.
It has already been determined that the male pattern baldness is a completely different state of baldness in comparison to the female pattern of baldness due to the losing state of hair loss and a different grade pattern. The female hair loss generally is seen as the thinning of the hairline as well as the losing of hair from the back sides and the mid-crown portion of the scalp with the widening gap between the partition, whereas the male pattern baldness starts with the receding hairline from the top and the front portion of the scalp.
In the female pattern, the donor area is usually unstable and the selection of donor area in the female is a sophisticated task as there is no any particular safe donor area and it is difficult to decide the particular safe zone for extraction usage for the hair grafts in the women hair loss cases.
The hair transplant cost also varies in both the male & female hair loss cases, which is generally affected by the practiced technique of the hair transplant procedure.
How Female Hair Transplant is different from Male is described below with the concerning aspects:
- A different Hair Loss Pattern: The female pattern of hair loss has completely different pattern since the hair loss can be seen with the diffusing hair loss with some difficulties related to the determining the donor area as the hair loss is not limited to the particular safe zone like men and diffused pattern makes it complicated to target the donor area and there is a higher probability of the wrong graft implantation results in hair fall instead of hair regrowth.
- An Unstable Donor Area: The scalp of a woman has an unstable donor area and hair loss starts with the diffusive loss that makes difficulties for a surgeon to define the stable donor zone for the hair restoration procedure.
- Thinning at the Top of the Scalp & Crown area: In men, androgenic alopecia presents the pattern hair loss with thinning of top & the front portion of the scalp, whereas in females, it usually occurs with the thinning at the top of the scalp and crown area. The thinning of hair from the mid crown portion needs a special set of skills & precision to perform the hair restoration procedure. The hair restoration case in women always needs a fuller and dense thickness with the hair grafts as the hair loss are more common with the top and the crown portion and surgeon always targets a multiple hair grafts instead of single graft for the restoration procedure. To achieve the high-density with a number of hair grafts in female hair transplant is a very much complicated task and only an expert hair transplant Surgeon can perform it correctively & precisely.
On the whole, we can say that the procedure of hair restoration in females is a tough task and it is presented by the diffusive hair loss that makes difficulties in determining the particular donor area that may lead to the probability of wrong placement grafts and that is why there is need of an expert hair transplant Surgeon to perform the female hair transplant.
