Hair transplant for women – what you should know

Female hair transplantation is still a rarely discussed topic. Very often hair loss and baldness in women is not taken as seriously as it is for men. Hair loss in women is considered a “natural phenomenon”.

Unfortunately, female hair loss, baldness or receding hairline has a very negative impact on their self-acceptance and self-confidence. It affects their quality of life and their mental and emotional state.

Why? Because thick, shiny hair is one of the classic characteristics of femininity.


Factors for female baldness:

  • genetics
  • Hormonal changes occurring in the body
  • Medical problems, such as underlying or systemic conditions
  • Side effects of medications
  • mechanical injuries such as burns, scars from accidents or plastic surgery

3 types of female hair loss

  • Scattered

Hair loss occurs in several areas of the head. Diffuse hair loss is an especially common type of baldness that occurs in women. Hair loss occurs only on the front and top of the head, with slight thinning of hair on the back and sides.

  • Patterned

This is a type of baldness similar to that seen in men. Women with this type of baldness, usually retain most of the front hairline, while thinning occurs at the back and sides of the head.

  • Local

Baldness occurs in specific areas of the head. Localized hair loss often results in the appearance of bald patches.

In most situations, hair loss in women is diffuse, with thinning occurring all over the head. This is a completely different type of baldness as in the case of men.

Hair transplant for women. Is it possible?

While hair transplantation in women is possible, a very small proportion of women can qualify for a hair transplant procedure. Only about 2-5% of women will benefit from this type of procedure.

With this in mind, we have prepared a brief description of the types of hair loss that qualify for hair transplantation in women.

Female pattern baldness

The hair is thinning on the top and parietal area with little or no thinning on the back and sides of the head. A hair transplant can be performed in this case because the hair at the back of the head and sides is thick, strong and resistant to DHT.

Mechanical or tractional or marginal alopecia

Hair loss occurs in the front hairline, temples or sides of the head. It occurs as a result of using hairstyles that pull hard on the hair roots, causing them to pull out.

  • Hair loss after plastic surgery

This applies to women who have undergone surgeries such as a facelift or brow lift and want to hide the visible scars from the procedure.

  • Hair loss due to injury

They are often women who have undergone accidents such as burns or mechanical hair pulling.

  • High front line

Women in this category undergo a hair transplant to lower their hairline by several inches.

Transgender people

In these cases, people who are transitioning from male to female and want a more feminine hairline often come in for a hair transplant.

In either of these cases, you should see our specialist to discuss and demonstrate your eligibility for a hair transplant. Our skilled team will select the appropriate hair transplant technique to make it most suitable.

The most common method of hair transplantation in women is FUE, or follicular unit extraction, which involves transplanting hair from one area of the body to another.
