Types of Hair Transplants for Women

Care4Hair offers women various hair restoration options. Not only can our female patients undergo a standard scalp hair transplant, but Dr. Valladares can graft hair for minor cosmetic purposes. Women trust our team of Miami hair specialists to change their forehead shapes, lower their hairlines, hide facelift or brow lift scars, and reshape their eyebrows.

  • Scalp Hair Grafting: The standard hair restoration procedure at the Care4Hair clinic is scalp hair transplantation. Typically, our patients have exhausted all other reparation methods by the time they enter our Miami clinic. If a woman’s hair loss is not remediated with lifestyle changes or prescribed solutions, a hair transplant is the only option to achieve full, natural-looking results. The surgeon removes hair follicles from a donor area during a hair transplant and implants them into the balding recipient areas. The methods and technologies for this procedure vary, but each one yields permanent results.
  • Forehead Reduction: Hair transplants harmonize the faces of women born with an uncomplimentary hairline or those with thinning hair in the forelock and temples. Women who style their hair in tight hairdos will notice their hairlines receding over time. This hair loss causes the forehead to appear larger, uneven, and unnatural. Female patients who want a more youthful and balanced hairline or just a slight change in its overall shape can achieve the results they want at Care4Hair.
  • Scar Revision and Hiding: A hair transplant easily conceals the residual scars of a facelift or brow lift that are usually visible at the edge of the hairline and temples. Therefore, by taking follicular units from a donor area of the head and placing them along the scarred area, the patient gains a more youthful hairline with no visible scarring from their previous cosmetic procedures.
  • Eyebrow Transplant: Dense and shapely eyebrows are a symbol of female vitality. Since they greatly influence facial harmony, an eyebrow hair transplant is life-changing for individuals with sparse brows. Eyebrow hair is transplanted in the same way as it is on the scalp. Dr. Valladares removes donor hair from the back of the head or behind the ear and carefully implants it in the eyebrow area to grow in a natural-looking pattern. Patients can achieve the look they want in one non-invasive procedure.

Female Hair Transplant Methods and Technologies

Care4Hair performs hair transplants using two main methods: Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) and Direct Hair Implantation (DHI). The two approaches involve extracting individual hair follicles from donor areas and implanting them into the thinning recipient areas. Where FUE and DHI differ, however, is how the follicles are embedded into the skin.

  • 01
    Traditional FUE
  • 02
    DHI
During an FUE hair transplant, Dr. Valladares creates tiny incisions in the recipient area where the transplanted follicles should go. They are then grafted from the donor area using technologies like NeoGraft or ARTAS and manually inserted into the canals.
The DHI hair transplant method follows that of the traditional FUE. However, the DHI is performed entirely with a specific tool, known as a Choi Implanter Pen. Dr. Valladares uses the specialized tool to remove and inject the grafts in place of manual implantation. A benefit of DHI over FUE is that the Choi Implanter Pen automatically creates openings while it implants the follicles, thus, not requiring small incisions beforehand.

Care4Hair performs the FUT hair transplant on specific patients requiring it, but the FUE and DHI techniques are more favorable since they do not require stitches or the linear bald scar that the FUT method imposes.

Are all women suitable candidates for a hair transplant?

A woman must have enough donor hair in the back and sides of her head to fill the balding parts of her scalp or eyebrows. Therefore, patients with Diffuse Unpatterned Alopecia are not ideal candidates for a hair transplant since they usually do not have enough donor follicles to harvest. Care4hair also recommends that patients be a minimum of 25 years old, ideally between 30 and 50, which is when hair loss begins to stabilize.

Other excellent candidates for a female hair transplant include:

  • Women whose hair loss is caused by trauma, burn injuries, or surgery.
  • Women whose hair loss is worsening despite prescribed solutions.
  • Women whose hair loss is not caused by a chronic medical condition that will cause the hair to keep falling

How is hair transplantation different for women and men?

Hair transplantation methods are the same for both men and women. However, female hair transplants require the skill of an experienced surgeon that understands how the hairline should frame the female face. Women’s hairlines are naturally positioned lower than men’s and must be fashioned to appear either rounder, more oval, or rectangular with softened corners. Dr. Valladares takes a woman’s face shape and proportions into account when designing a new hairline to ensure the most natural-looking results.

Hair Transplant Recovery and Results

The hair transplant recovery time varies depending on the chosen method and the body area being treated. Recovery from an FUE hair transplant procedure is reasonably short, as this technique does not require surgical incisions or stitching. Some patients return to work that same day while others take a day or two, or even an entire week off to focus on aftercare. The recovery process should not take longer than 7-10 days. However, it may take up to one year to see full, permanent results.

It is important to note that transplanted hair will go through a resting phase called “shock loss,” where the body sheds a few weeks after the procedure. While some patients do not experience this, most patients will as it is their body’s natural response to the surgery. Rest assured, even though the hair falls, the grafts remain healthy under the skin and will grow back in the months to follow if all aftercare instructions are heeded.

    FAQS

    How soon after my hair transplant can I color my hair?

    Care4Hair recommends our patients wait at least 4-6 weeks after their hair transplant surgery before dyeing their hair. Allowing the scalp time to recover after surgery will procure the best results.

    What hair transplant procedures are recommended for women?

    Hair transplant methods and technologies are the same for both men and women. At your initial consultation, Dr. Valladares will recommend the best procedure for your specific hair loss type, medical history, and aesthetic goals.

    Will the procedure be painful?

    Care4Hair administers a local anesthetic so your hair transplant procedure will not be painful.

    Are there any risks associated with a hair transplant?

    Yes. As with any surgical procedure, there will always be a risk of complications when undergoing a hair transplant. While these risks vary depending on the type of transplant you elect and your medical history, general risks include:

    • Excessive bleeding
    • Nerve damage
    • Swelling around the eyes
    • Bruising
    • Infection
    • Scarring

    Any questions or concerns you may have must be discussed exclusively with Dr. Valladares at your first evaluation, as this is not an extensive list of potential complications. He will provide individualized care and recommendations based on your medical history.

    What is shock loss after a female hair transplant?

    Shock loss is a common reaction where the body sheds hair as a response to the trauma of the surgery. While it can be concerning to see your hair fall after undergoing a transplant intended to grow your hair, this reaction is perfectly normal. The follicles remain intact, and new, healthy hair will grow 2-3 months following your transplant.

    Can I get a hair transplant after pregnancy?

    Absolutely! We suggest waiting until after your post-partum hormones regulate and your hair loss stabilizes to determine the scope of work more accurately.

    When can I expect my full, permanent results?

    Healthy hairs will begin to form after the shock loss phase that takes place 1 to 5 weeks following your hair transplant. Hair will grow back steadily in the next 3 to 4 months, and final results will appear one year to 18 months post-procedure.

    Can a hair transplant treat postmenopausal hair loss in women?

    A hair transplant can significantly improve postmenopausal hair loss as long as the patient has sufficient donor hair.

    What exactly are the cycles of hair growth?

    Hair grows and sheds in three cycles:

    • The anagen phase: This is the standard growing phase that lasts between 2 to 6 years and accounts for 85% to 90% of the hair on your head.
    • The catagen phase: The catagen phase begins when the anagen phase ends. This is a transitional stage that lasts about 2 to 3 weeks when the outer root of the hair stops growing, and the follicles shrink.
    • The telogen phase: Hair in the telogen phase rests for 2 to 4 months and then sheds completely.
