Hair Transplant: An Effective Solution That Restores Women’s Self-Confidence

Hair transplantation is a highly effective treatment method that allows women with hair loss to regain their self-confidence. Especially for women, hair transplantation is of great importance as it has the potential to have a positive impact on their appearance. Hair loss or complete loss of hair is a worrying situation that no one wants to experience. Hair loss can negatively affect not only the appearance but also the psychology of the person. Especially in women, it can cause a greater concern than in men. In a study, it was stated that men who experience hair loss are unhappy with these problems, while in women, this condition causes deeper emotions, including fear, shame and humiliation. Serious psychological problems can also occur, such as feeling incomplete in social relationships, trying to hide the hair loss or having difficulty coping with hair loss. Although it is applied more frequently than men, it is becoming increasingly common for women to benefit from hair transplantation treatments.

However, before hair transplantation, it is important to understand the causes of hair loss and what women should do to protect their hair.

Causes of Hair Loss in Women

Female pattern hair loss is the most common cause of hair loss in women, also known as Androgenetic Alopecia. However, other important causes of hair loss in women can be the following:

  • Genetic predisposition
  • Autoimmune diseases
  • Hormonal changes
  • Medication use
  • Menopause
  • Pregnancy
  • Excessive stress
  • Heavy diets
  • Iron deficiency

Androgenetic Alopecia is characterised by changes in the hair follicle. The terminal hair follicles gradually shrink, become colourless fine hairs, and the hair growth phase shortens and eventually falls out.

Female pattern hair loss is similar to male pattern hair loss, but there are also some differences. In men, hair loss usually affects the front, side and crown areas, whereas in women this type of complete hair loss is very rare. Hair loss in women usually occurs as a thinning of the hair or is localised in a specific area. Since the causes of hair loss in women are not fully understood, it can be more difficult to diagnose.

Ways to Prevent Hair Loss Types in Women

Hair loss prevention for women may differ depending on the type and cause of hair loss. However, there are some suggestions below:

Hair Transplantation:
Hair transplantation, which offers a permanent solution to hair loss, is the process of taking hair follicles resistant to hair loss from the donor area and transplanting them to the areas needed. This procedure, which is performed with minimally invasive methods, is an effective solution for women against permanent hair loss when the donor area is suitable for transplantation.

Approved by the FDA, minoxidil topical solution can show effects that slow and stop hair loss. 2% minoxidil form is recommended for women.

PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma):
PRP therapy involves the separation of blood taken from the body into plasma and platelets by centrifugation. This mixture is then injected into the scalp and can stimulate hair growth.

Hair Mesotherapy:
Mesotherapy is a method in which pharmacological drugs are injected into the skin in small doses. It is preferred to slow down hair loss and revitalise hair.

Healthy Nutrition:
Consuming foods rich in protein, biotin, magnesium, zinc, selenium and vitamins can support hair health. Meat, fish, eggs, whole grains, spinach, bananas and green leafy vegetables contain these important nutrients and can help strengthen and protect hair.

Statistics on Hair Loss in Women:

One in four women suffer from hair loss, and this rate can increase to two in four with menopause.
Approximately 40% of women with hair loss experience “female pattern hair loss”, which is associated with genetic factors.
Ten per cent of premenopausal women and more than 50 per cent of women over the age of 65 experience hair thinning.
84% of women with hair loss experience low self-esteem, 34% struggle with depression and 94% find hair loss less acceptable than men.
Approximately 14.7% of hair transplant recipients worldwide are women.

Can women have hair transplantation?

Although hair transplantation treatment in women is similar to the hair transplantation method in men, there are some differences. In men, hair is usually shaved before hair transplantation and then the procedure is applied. In women, hair transplantation can be performed without shaving the hair.

How effective is hair transplantation in women?

Hair transplantation in women is usually an effective method, but the results may not be as pronounced as in men. Hair transplantation in women is usually preferred for milder conditions such as thinning or thinning hair. Hair transplantation is often used in women to reshape the hairline or to plump up sparse areas. For successful results, it is important to choose a suitable candidate, the surgeon's experience and the use of the right techniques. The results of hair transplantation in women usually vary depending on the person's hair structure, skin characteristics and response to treatment.

How much does hair transplantation cost for women?

Hair transplantation prices for women in Turkey generally range between 7,000 TL and 50,000 TL. This price range may vary depending on factors such as the fact that unshaven transplantation makes the operation technique more difficult and the cost per graft is higher. Each clinic and surgeon may have different pricing, so it is important to consult several different clinics to get a precise price.

How long does hair transplanted to women last?

The lifespan of hair transplanted to women is usually permanent. Since the hair follicles taken during the hair transplantation procedure are usually taken from the donor area that is not affected by hair loss, the life of the transplanted hair can be long. However, genetic factors, aging, hormonal changes or other medical conditions can cause hair loss in women as in men. In this case, the transplanted hair may also be affected. However, when properly cared for and with the right treatment and care after surgical procedures, hair transplant results are usually permanent for most women.

How should a hair transplant patient sleep?

After hair transplantation, it is important to sleep on your back and with your head up. A pillow with neck support is usually used to keep your head in the correct position. It is important to avoid lying on your stomach or rolling over on your stomach, as this can put unnecessary pressure on the transplanted hair follicles and negatively affect the healing process.
