Answered by Dr. Dan McGrath

How successful are hair transplants in women? - Wanda

In short the answer is Very successful female hair transplantation presents its own set of distinct challenges and the surgeon needs to be aware of the specific differences in the transplantation process between men and women, but there is no reason to believe that hair transplantation is less successful in women vs men.

Good post,i`ve seen a number of very succsessful Hts posted online that women have had and seen one in person at Shapiro medical group where one of the female techs had a HT.
It was very natural and i`d have never known she`d had any work done.

I agree, good post.

Women tend to have more diffuse loss which requires doctors to be much more selective when accepting female patients as candidates for HT.

However, in the proper candiate, HT should work just as well as it would for a man given the same hair characteristics.

Attached are photos of a female patient who simply lost the left side of her hairline and a bit of hair beyond that as well. Her results are right on par with any male patient we've done. I will do a proper presentation of her in another thread.

Laser Hair Therapy is a non-chemical, non-invasive treatment that is being used around the U.S. for the treatment of hair loss. Like other treatments (such as Propecia and Minoxidil), some patients tend to respond better than others. In general, it seems that patients who 'have more hair' (perhaps in early stages of hair loss) tend to have better results. Large-scale clinical trials have yet to be performed. However, many men and women are seeing positive changes in their hair in response to these types of treatments.

Sorry, I'm not buying into that phony crap - and I am sure an admin will delete your sales pitches before too long.
