Female Hair Transplant
The cause and extent of hair loss in women should be determined prior to hair transplantation. For an adult, 100-150 strands per day is considered normal. However, some women may experience significant hair loss, which could indicate a problem. The causes of hair loss in women differ from those in males. As a result, these factors should be carefully considered.
What Causes Hair Loss in Women?
Hormones are a common cause of hair loss in women. While one out of every four women loses their hair naturally, one out of every two women loses their hair during menopause. Hair loss is caused by the DHT (dihydrotestosterone) hormone, which is a testosterone derivative.
Deficiency in vitamins and minerals
Iron deficiency is one of the most prevalent disorders among women, and anemia promotes hair loss. Iron deficiency prevents the body from producing haemoglobin. Hair loss can also be caused by a zinc deficiency. Keratin is a protein that aids in hair development and repair.
Androgenetic alopecia is a frequent condition that affects women over the age of 40. Androgenetic alopecia is a hereditary condition.
Vitamin deficiency can result from a poor diet, which can lead to immune system disorders. Hair will get weak and fall out as a result of this.
What Is the Difference Between Female and Male Hair Transplantation?
In the majority of cases, women’s hair falls out in the front and middle. The hair between the ears frequently does not fall out, resulting in partial hair loss rather than complete hair loss.
The first wash after a female hair transplant is performed by the clinic three days after the procedure. Following the surgeon’s instructions, the patient will shampoo her hair at home for the next ten days. After two weeks, shock loss (loss of implanted hair) will occur. 3 months following the operation, new hair will begin to grow, and the hair will get denser. The hair will grow in the densest and most abundant form around the conclusion of the 8th-12th months.
Female hair loss, on the other hand, may be caused by anemia or goitre sickness, which is not the case in men. In these circumstances, a hair transplant will be of no use unless the medical problem is addressed first. The hair that was inserted will fall out again.
Following Female Hair Transplant Surgery, Recuperation
The way donor hair is taken, whether by strip harvesting or follicular unit excision, affects how quickly a woman recovers from female hair restoration surgery. If linear harvesting is employed, you may feel a little more discomfort after surgery, but hair transplant surgery usually takes less than 24 hours to recover from. You should be able to resume most daily activities the day after your operation, though it is recommended that you avoid intense activity for a week to avoid any inadvertent damage and limit the chance of bleeding. You can go back to work the same day after surgery, however many individuals prefer to take a few days off thereafter.
Otherwise, expect some little scabbing in the transplanted area for up to a week, no bandages, and the ability to wash your hair the day after surgery. If you want to hide any scabs, you can put on a hat or cap right after surgery.
