Female Hair Transplant
Hair loss is a common problem for men and women but the pattern of hair loss is quite different in women. The reasons for hair loss in both are poor diet, hormonal disturbance, medications, chronic diseases etc. and in women, some other reasons are anemia due to the menstrual cycle, physical and mental stress, pregnancy etc.
Generally, women do not go bald and the most frequent hair problem for women is diffuse hair loss. Most of the women face thinning of hair and if they face baldness, the pattern is different from the pattern in men. In men, the back and sides of the head do not lose hair completely. These areas are considered baldness resistant in men. In women, the baldness occurs on the head completely and there is not any baldness resistant area.
Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) is a hormone that is the enemy of hair follicles on the head of women. This hormone affects the hair follicles severely.

Basically, two procedures are used for women that are Strip method and Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE).

Before starting any treatment for women facing diffuse hair loss, a complete workout is essential. After that, the treatment is given by using medical, surgical or the combination of both treatment options.
