Follicular Unit Extraction can be performed on any hair, male or female. However, male pattern baldness is by far the most common cause of hair loss in men, and it leaves in place healthy hair at the back of the head that is resistant to hair loss. This is the area from where the donor hair is harvested. Women, on the other hand, much more often experience thinning hair that is equally distributed all over the head. Without an obvious donor area of thick growth, it is difficult to get good hair transplant results. And it’s almost impossible to perform the procedure without shaving the donor areas, which many women are averse to. It is also harder to ensure good and lasting results in women, as hormone fluctuations can play a role in hair loss. While there are cases where women can benefit from a hair transplant, whether it is to cover up incisions from plastic surgery, restore hair after trauma, or combat pattern baldness similar to that found in men, The Hair Doctor does not currently offer NeoGraft hair transplants for women.
