While men have accepted to deal and live with hair loss and baldness so has the society, women’s baldness is still somewhere unacceptable and subject to awe by the society and hence, women as well feel hair loss to be unacceptable. Women are most often than not subjects of sympathy and unavoidable attention when it comes to acute hair loss and baldness. However, there aren’t as many women as many men who are affected by it, women’s baldness still happens to be a pathological condition most avidly due to any medical conditions and genetic inheritance and androgenic alopecia as well.
Hair loss is no different between women and men, but as the basic cause of hair loss is androgenic alopecia which happens due as a reaction to the DHA steroid secreted from male androgens that secretes in women in a dormant level, this is least common in women than it is in men. Women’s hair loss is often non-androgenic alopecia like trichotilomania that is caused by cornrows, extensive and constant styling, ironing, tight braiding etc.
Female pattern hair loss usually differs than men’s by means that it occurs in either of some definite patterns, and there is no actual pattern and hair just thins off diffusively claiming the overall volume and density. Profuse hair loss in women leading to the emergence of broad slits and parts or lots of the scalp might be aided with clinical hair loss treatment with medications or a hair restoration surgery. Medications prove purposeful; but it slows down losing of hair rather than stop the process. And when women are at the end of all remedies they might consider a hair transplant surgery which is a permanent and everlasting hair restoration.
Women’s hair loss patterns don’t follow any certainty hence choosing the accurate permanent donor site is a big challenge for every surgeon. And this is regarded as vulnerability of supply and demand. Weather the hair loss is at minor level or severe, a hair restoration surgery is considered based on a few basic principles.
The hair loss syndrome what’s causing it and how extensive is the thinning of the hair. And if there is acute hair thinning yet with a concentrated hair density which is sometimes regarded as a Christmas tree pattern, then a proper full fledged hair restoration can be supplied according to the demand.
Next is having realistic expectations and understanding between patient and surgeon regarding expectation issues should be clear. The type of surgery, the target donor site and closest proposed hairline that can be acquired is all dependent on the patient surgeon evaluation and the exacted idea and ideal of the surgery is required to be agreed upon by both patient and surgeon. The fact is that hair density depends all upon how much donor hair can be extracted and also the fact that once the donor hair is extracted the donor site would not grow any more follicular units, for follicles are grow throughout lifetime but hair follicular units don’t. So the hair transplant surgery is actually to distribute as many baldness resistant hair as possible. Realistic expectation includes understanding this fact and the arriving result.
The above can be the demanding principles while the supply side of things refers to how much donor hair is usable. High hair density can cover a lot of recipient area as apparently a more thinned down hair line won’t be able to meet up with. Then hair caliber comes in the scene that how thick and powerful each strand of donor hair is, than how curly it is, as it is regarded curly hair equals the appearance of hair density. If hair caliber is poor then nothing matters. But given strong hair caliber curly and thick hair prove better than more hair density of thin straight strands.
For women’s hair transplant FUE is regarded as a provident procedure because of the diffusive and selective quality of the donor hair, this procedure would prove ideal. By means that the follicular unit hair transplant (FUE) involves direct extraction of individual hair follicles one at a time, the once determined donor hair can be selectively plucked from the donor area and planted in the recipient area.
All of these factors and more are important when considering the adequacy of a female candidate. And determining the right hair transplant surgery for women is only after formal physical as well as mental examination of the patient by an experienced hair transplant surgeon that truly helps define realistic and attainable goals.
