There are many types of hair loss. Each patient will require a different treatment. The hair transplant procedure can be tailored to suit individual needs, particularly when it comes to male and female hair loss. This is how the process works for women and men. 

Hair Loss in Men and Women

Androgenic Alopecia is a condition that can affect both males and women. Although the causes may seem similar, it progresses in a different way. 

Male and female hair loss can be caused by increased sensitivities to male sex hormones. When it comes into contact with an enzyme, testosterone, also found in certain amounts in females becomes dihydro testosterone. DHT is responsible for male hair loss, even though it has been shown to have specific benefits on other parts. 

Both sexes experience androgenic hair loss. This is caused by a genetically-determined shortening (anagen), of hair's growth phase. The hair shedding phase and the beginning of another anagen phase take longer. It takes longer for hairs to grow back during the normal growth cycle. 

Follicular miniaturization is another common cause of androgenic male pattern hair loss. This is when the hair's follicle shrinks. It results in shorter and thinner hair shafts. 

The male pattern hair loss and female pattern hair loss experience is different. It starts to fall from the front of the hairline for men. It begins to thin, and then regresses towards the center of your head, creating an inverted U or M. Hair loss for women begins in the middle of the hairline and moves outwards. 

It is the pattern of hair loss that differentiates between male and female pattern baldness. It starts at the temples for men and then gradually recedes into an “M” shape. Thinner hairs at the top of your head can also lead to baldness. For women, androgenic hair fall begins with gradual thinning of the part line. This is followed by diffuse hair loss radiating from the top of your head. Women are less likely to experience frontal hairline recession than men, and they also tend to go bald more rarely than men.

Take into account 

Our surgeon will need to consider other factors, including your financial and psychological readiness for surgery. 

They will first determine if hair transplant is possible after male pattern hair loss has stopped. Hair loss does not stop at an age that is universal. Hair loss rate and amount depend on many factors, including diet, environment, health, and general health. A man's genetic makeup also plays a role in how much hair he will lose. 

Hair loss can still occur if a patient rushes to have hair surgery done too early. A man might end up with a restored hairline, but a bald center. 

Pre-surgery hair loss medication would be maintained even after the operation. This is done to control or prevent hair loss. 

The procedure 

At our clinic Dr. Bonaros mens hair transplant UK the procedure is done by removing donor-grafts from the back of the scalp, as this area is usually unaffected by the condition. FUT (Follicular Unit Transferration) and FUE are the two methods. FUT, also called the “strip” method, involves the removal from a portion of the scalp that contains the donor hair graft. Although it's more involved, it can yield better results because it is less traumatizing to individual hair follicles. FUE is a more recent technique that uses a special tool to punch out individual grafts from the scalp. 

Who is a good candidate for a hair-transplant? 

A hair transplant is not for everyone. To determine if the treatment is right for you, a surgeon must thoroughly examine your patient. These are some of the potential candidates for female doctors: 

  1. Hair losses in women who have experienced traction alopecia (mechanical reasons) are common.This happens to women who style their hair often in tight buns, braids or weaves. 
  2. A distinct hair loss pattern is common in women with male pattern baldness.
  3. Hair loss in women who have suffered from burns, trauma, or other types of injury can lead to hair loss.
  4. Scarring can cause hair loss at the incision sites for women who have had cosmetic or plastic surgery.
  5. Alopecia marginalia is a condition in which women are experiencing alopecia. It is very similar to traction.
