Hair Transplant for Men and Women

Hair transplant surgery for men and women.

A common misconception is that hair loss is only seen in aging men, when actually many women also experience hair loss. Age isn’t always a factor either, as some types of hair loss can occur in young people as well. Hair loss for men and women can be the result of genetics, poor diet, high stress level, aging, or medical conditions and treatments. There are many options for  hair replacement, and though many of them do cater to men, there are also many options for women too.  And although these options may not provide a permanent solution for hair regrowth, non-surgical methods can produce natural results that can last up to six months.

Hair transplant surgery can be an effective type of hair restoration treatment if you have enough donor hair to cover the thin areas. Consulting with a hair surgeon can give a more detailed idea of hair growth, hair loss, and surgical hair restoration. During the consultation your hair surgeon will view the area to be treated and explain the hair transplant procedure in greater detail. A Hair transplant procedure, in short, refers to using a “donor area” to treat a balding area. This is completed by taking hair from a donor area and transplanting them into a balding area to grow naturally. For women, a commonly treated area for hair restoration is the eyebrows.  Treatments are now available to restore eyebrow hair that may have been lost due to excessive tweezing or shaving. As women are subject to shaping their eyebrows, at times, it may be the cause of hair fall out. Eyebrow hair transplants result in fuller eyebrows that feel and grow just like regular hair. Consulting with a hair surgeon can give a more detailed idea of hair growth, hair loss, and surgical hair restoration.

Many prospective hair transplant patients have general questions about the procedure . And while hair transplant costs will vary from practice to practice, the competitive market has made hair transplant procedures more affordable than ever. Many practices charge per graft and the price may depend on how many grafts are needed for your hair transplant procedure. Some financing options offer 0% financing and competitive, affordable rates. But you must keep in mind, the doctor’s success / failure ratio, how many procedures you will have to undergo, and the additional treatments involved with keeping your newly transplanted  hair.

*Hair transplantation does not stop ongoing hair loss.

Additional treatments such as, topical solutions, prescription drugs, and laser bio-therapy are commonly recommended by hair transplant surgeons.
