    Default Hair Restoration

    I am a 45 year old woman with thinning hair and was considering getting a hair restoration treatment done. Can anyone explain how the procedure is done and whether it is painful?

    Hair is taken from the donor region (the back) and placed in the front /thinning/bald areas.

    There is relatively little pain involved however make sure you do your research and make sure HT surgery is for you

    Wow - this is a huge question. I strongly suggest you visit a few
    doctors' websites and learn a lot more about this procedure. And no -
    performed with care, the actual transplant is virtually painless,
    although especially the first night there can be some pain in the donor
    area.

    The most common problem problem for hair loss in men and women both is genetic and one more reason is medication problem. Hair transplantation is the best way for both to get rid of hair loss problem and the different treatments for the hair loss problem. Hair transplant is involves using the synthetic or human hair to temporarily cover a bald spot and hair replacement systems requires quite bit professional hair styling to blend with your natural hair line.

    After hair transplant surgery, your scalp may be very tender. You may need to take pain medications for several days. Your surgeon will have you wear a surgical dressing over the scalp for at least a day or two. Your surgeon may also prescribe an antibiotic and/or anti-inflammatory drug to be taken for several days following surgery. Most people are able to return to work two to five days after surgery.

    Within two to three weeks after surgery, the transplanted hair will fall out, but you should start to notice new growth within a few months. Most people will have attained 60% of new hair growth after six to nine months. Some surgeons prescribe the hair-growing drug minoxidil (Rogaine) to improve hair growth following transplantation, but it is not known how effective this is.

    Hi Johnhelen69,

    from what I hear hair transplantation is not very painful, you would feel more discomfort than anything. I am not a doctor, and neither am I proponent of ht, but the truth is that, few women have success with it because of the type of hair loss they experience. make sure you do your research and find a very qualified and experienced dr that is used to giving great results.

    What other treatments have you tried?
    hth,
    Patricia

    In female pattern baldness, however, these donor areas are usually unstable. They are thinning, just like the other areas of the head. The donor areas in women are affected by follicle-killing DHT. That means that if you remove hair and accompanying follicles from these donor areas in women and transplant them to other areas, it's just going to fall out. Any doctor who would attempt to transplant hair from an unstable donor site is potentially unethical and may just be trying to take economic advantage of the patient.

    Hair restoration process or treatment is performed when you suffer from significant hair loss, or thinning hair. It is a procedure to remove hair follicles from one part of your body and planting them to your head or the balding area. For more information on hair loss treatment, you may visit the given reference, as any licensed dermatologist only can help you in this with proper guidance. Hope this helps.
