Hair Replacement Surgery for Women

Hair loss is common for both genders, yet it can be more traumatic when it comes to self-esteem and confidence for women. While men may not enjoy losing hair – it is frustrating for both genders – the emotional toll for women tends to be greater. Thinning upon the top of the scalp is the most common type of female hair loss, creating noticeable bald patches that are difficult to hide. Hair replacement surgery can offer relief, giving women with this condition back their confidence and improving their self-esteem.

Follicle Unit Transfer or Extraction Surgery

Depending on the type of hair loss or the extent of thinning, either follicle unit transfer (FUI) or follicle unit extraction (FUE) can be used in hair replacement surgery for women. These methods are an improved medical option compared to previous strip transplants that involved larger incisions and more stitches. The individual hair follicles can be harvested from other areas of the scalp and transplanted to the thinning areas, but less scarring occurs, and the recovery time is quicker than outdated hair transplant methods.

Another advancement in hair transplant surgeries is the use of platelet-rich plasma or PRP. Extracting plasma from the patient’s own blood through a centrifuge can help improve the healing process. PRP is injected into the surgical sites, helping heal the wounds to the scalp quicker and stimulating hair growth.

Hair loss and thinning can be devastating for women, but it is not without treatment options. FUE and FUI hair replacement surgeries can offer a solution that can create natural, thicker hair and restore a woman’s self-confidence in her appearance. This medical procedure is available through top plastic surgeons in the country, giving many women a chance to restore their beautiful hair and look their best at any age.

Women, Do You Want to Lower Your Hairline?

One of the most common reasons that women seek hair transplant surgery is to change the position of their forehead hairline. Many women have a receding hairline that can make their forehead appear longer or larger than it was when they were younger. Hair transplant surgery can be used to add an inch or two to the front hairline, reducing the size of the forehead and creating a more youthful, fuller head of hair.

There are many reasons women may have a receding hairline. This is often much different than the receding hairline in men that can be caused by male pattern baldness. It can be caused by health conditions, medications or genetics, but it can also be due to the strain of certain hairstyles. Pulling the hair back into a barrette or ponytail can remove hair follicles from the front, as can weaves and other hair adornments.

Hair transplant surgery has advanced over the last decade, offering more discreet and reliable options for replacing hair. One system called NeoGraft uses individual donor hair follicles from another area to replace the lost hair at the hairline. This method does not require stitches, leaving no scars for a discreet procedure. There are no strips or stitches like in the old method of transplant, but intricate replacement of individual hairs to add up to two inches to the front of the hairline.

If you would like to lower your front hairline to a more youthful position, consult a plastic surgeon that offers “touch free” hair transplants like NeoGraft. You can have a fuller head of hair without stitches and a quicker recovery time with the new options available in hair transplants.
