Is A Hair Transplant For Women Different Or More Difficult Than One For Men?May 28th, 2010
Q: Is the hair transplant for women different from the one for men? Anything easier? Anything more difficult?
A: Women’s hairlines are far more complex than men’s as the hair in a women’s hairline often creates subtle swirls and directional changes. These must be mimicked in the surgical design for the hair transplant to look natural.
In women, we are more often working in and around existing hair, as most women that seek hair transplantation are thinning rather than bald. This slows down the graft insertion steps and makes the procedure take a bit longer compared to men.
