Hair loss in women is a bigger transplant surgery problem for both doctors and patients than in men. Hair loss in women is much more complicated and uncertain than in men, so from the point of view of doctors, these patients form a difficult group.

Turkey Medicals member and Head of Department of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery at Acıbadem University Faculty of Medicine Prof. Dr. says that the decision to transplant hair in male patients who lose hair can be made very easily, and hair transplantation is one of the last treatment options in female patients who come with this complaint.

Because the reason for the loss in men is obvious. Hair on the front and top of the scalp is genetically sensitive to dehydrotestosterone, another male hormone that the hormone testosterone converts in the body. Although these men do not have a significant excess of testosterone, when they encounter this hormone, they first thin and then fall out. And the hair on the back of the neck does not have such genetic sensitivity. Therefore, in men, the hair taken from the neck and planted on the front does not fall out again after holding it.


However, hair loss in women can also occur as a symptom of the disease. Especially in fast-starting spills, it is necessary to check whether there is a metabolic cause underlying. The most common causes are iron-deficient anemia, a lack of thyroid hormones, and a low level of vitamin D. Biotin and folic acid deficiency, fluctuations in masculinity and other sex hormones can also shed hair. Especially in patients with polycystic ovary syndrome, sex hormone irregularities are observed together with hair loss. More rarely, autoimmune diseases can also cause intense hair loss. In the case of any of these reasons, treating the current disorder can prevent hair loss.There are also various drugs and methods that can be applied to strengthen hair, whether for the metabolic reasons mentioned or not. For example, using 2% minoxidil lotion triggers the production phase in the hair cycle. The application, which we call PRP in Turkey for woman (platelet rich plasma), also acts by a similar mechanism. However, some Drugs Act by mechanisms that suppress the male hormone. Drugs or additives that increase estrogen can also strengthen the hair. But it is also worth noting that the effect of this type of treatment is temporary, and sometimes they create a side effect. Some medications can cause itching, tenderness, and facial hair in some ladies. And the effect ends 1 month after release.

In PRP applications, live cells prepared from your own blood are injected into the scalp. There are 7 kinds of growth factors inside these cells and they trigger the hair growth cycle. But since the effect lasts for a maximum of 15 days, it should be applied as a treatment of 5-6 sessions with breaks of 2 weeks.

Hair transplantation low cost in price in Antalya and Istanbul Turkey comes to the agenda, after all metabolic causes are excluded and medical treatments are insufficient. The biggest problem with hair transplantation in women is that the weakness in the hair affects all the hair on the head. I mean, he doesn’t have strong, thick strands of hair on the back of his neck like men do. When you take these weak roots from the neck and transplant them to the front, there’s a good chance they’ll be lost due to transplant trauma. Moreover, female-pattern hair loss as men on the field isn’t fully opened. There’s usually a dilution on the hill. Therefore, planting should always be done between the hair. This, in turn, can lead to the loss of existing hair on the hill with plantation trauma. I mean, you can be the hair on the front and the neck. Therefore, careful patient selection and meticulous surgical practice are very important. A number of follicle transfers between 500-1500 are performed

Turkey Hair transplantation in women do not cut the hair. It’s just cut short in the form of a frame that gets a donor on the back of the neck. But if the patient’s hair is long, this part can be camouflaged. Usually, a number of follicles are transferred between 500-1500, and they are widely distributed on the hill. After that, there is maintenance performed for 15 days with daily washes. Before plantation must be done PRP and after plantation in Turkey hospital. It’s repeated every day. Minoxidil lotion can also be used.

Hair dye and other hairstylists are free from the week, but during these procedures, if there is itching, burning or pain, it is necessary to think that the chemical used damages the hair. Source application definitely should not be done, because the plantation hair causes hair loss.
