Although hair transplantion is typically believed to be a primarily male-targeted procedure, hair transplants are also routinely performed in women for a variety of reasons. About 30% of women over 30 years of age experience hair thinning, so hair transplant is a very common procedure that improves hair density and provides a solution for female hair loss. Hair transplantion can also be performed to restore the hairline in women who have either lost the frontal hairline due to aging related hair loss or simply were born with a high hairline. Finally, in certain situations hair transplantation is the only reasonable solution for women who have undergone prior surgical rejuvenation such as facelift and/or browlift and lack hair due to exposed scars in the temples, sideburns, behind the ears, or elsewhere.
Yes, an FUE hair transplant can help reduce the size of your forehead or lower the hairline by grafting hair from one area to the front. These donor areas are generally the back of the head, where hair tends to be impervious to pattern hair loss.
The initial recovery of the FUE female hair transplant lasts just 2-3 days. During these first days, a soft dressing is used to cover the very tiny 0.9-1.2-millimetre extraction holes at the back of the scalp. This dressing goes around the front of the forehead and wraps to secure the bandage over the back.
Because the hair follicles are extracted from the preferred sites at the back and side of your scalp, they are permanent and guaranteed to never fall out. Patients may require additional hair transplants when genetic hair on the top of your head thins.
