Women Hair Transplant
Women hair transplant has gained wide acceptance in recent years and fast becoming a mainstream treatment for women with hair loss. Contrary to popular belief, women can actually be excellent candidates for hair transplants and in some cases hair transplants can work better for women than for men.
Once reserved only for men, hair transplant is now a proven treatment for many women who also suffer from hair loss. With the advance of FUE technique, hair transplant can be particularly suitable for some women because of the minimal trauma involved in the procedure.
In the old days, hair transplant was done by removing an entire strip of skin from the patient head. The technician then dissect the follicles from the skin and then transplant the follicles to the thinning or balding areas of the patient. It is a very involved and traumatic experience for the patient, often associated with complications if the procedure is done incorrectly. That was until the invention of FUE technique by Dr. Ray Woods & Dr. Angela Woods-Campbell.
With FUE, follicles are literally extracted ONE AT A TIME with a minimum of trauma from the patient's donor site. The follicles are then transplanted to the thinning areas one at a time.
One of the challenges facing doctors performing women hair transplants is the fact that many women do suffer from diffuse thinning. But over the years as surgeons gained more experience in micro surgical transplant techniques and with the aid of high magnification equipment as well as ultra fine transplant instruments such as 0.75 mm grafts placement needles, diffuse thinning is less of a challenge nowadays under the hands of a skilled surgeon.
