While it is more common for men to be affected by premature balding, women can also suffer from hair loss. If you’re a woman who has experienced any hair loss, whether from aging, illness, or genetic disposition, it has probably affected your self-esteem and confidence. A NeoGraft hair transplant for women may be the answer.
The NeoGraft Hair Transplant for Women
Whether you are a male or female patient, the NeoGraft hair restoration procedure follows the same steps. During an initial consultation, a medical consultant assesses your hair (this can also be done using our online quote tool.) Your consultant will determine if you are a candidate for a hair transplant, how many grafts you will need for a successful procedure, and what add-ons you would like, such as PRP injections or HypoThermosol graft storage.
On the day of your NeoGraft procedure, the hair transplant specialist or technician will give you a mild local anesthetic and then proceed to extract hair grafts from the donor area. For men, this area is typically at the back of the head. Some women may not have an obvious donor area but rather a more even spread of thinning hair, which can make it harder to get good results from a hair transplant.
Once the hair grafts are harvested, which each graft consisting of up to 4 individual follicles, they are implanted into the recipient area you have outlined during your consultation. The procedure itself is virtually pain-free, but you may experience mild discomfort as the small incisions from extraction and implantation heal. This may take from 2-7 days after your procedure. Since general anesthesia isn’t needed, a NeoGraft hair transplant is a very safe and easy procedure and is typically administered by a technician. However, a surgeon or plastic surgeon should be the supervising doctor on site.
