What Causes Hair Loss in Women?
Female hair loss is very common among women. In fact, experts say that one in every five women experience hair loss due to family history, ageing, pregnancy, menopause, crash diets or trauma due to accidents.
Extensive use of chemical treatments such as hair straighteners, colours and perms can cause hair thinning or hair loss as well. The reason is that these chemicals may damage the health of hair follicles. The longer you have your scalp exposed to a chemical the higher the likelihood of that chemical to cause some sort of injury to the follicles.
Hair extensions and a variety of hairstyles can cause hair loss too. For example hairstyles that allow close attachment of hair to the root cause continuous traction, which can lead to permanent hair loss on many women.
The type of hair loss in women is very different from that in men. Women lose hair or experience hair thinning on all areas of the scalp in proportion. Some wear hair wigs to conceal the thinning areas; others use medication to stop the hair loss however none of these methods help hair regrow. Men usually suffer from loss of frontal hairline, however women usually suffer from loss of hair volume and density.
How is Female Hair Transplant Different?
The female hair transplant procedure involves moving hair from fuller areas to thinning areas. However the female pattern baldness is different from men as women usually lose hair all over their scalp, therefore the impact of the treatment may be limited due to the limited availability of stable donor sites on the scalp. Also in men the hair on the donor site is not subject to the balding process, however in women all hair on the scalp is subject to the balding process.
Careful choice of the hair transplant surgeon, setting right expectations for the patient and selecting the appropriate method for the procedure are key to success in female hair transplants. Some women are good candidates for surgery than others. Therefore pre-op screening is absolutely key in identifying whether you are a good candidate or not. Surgeons typically require blood tests to check glucose, iron stores and hormone levels. Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) is the preferred method for female hair transplants.
While male pattern baldness can be a common cause for men losing their hair, women may also be in need of a hair transplant. There are a number of causes for female hair loss including a lack of nutrition, stress, hormonal imbalances, and scalp issues. A woman’s hair is often her crowning glory, with many women spending a large amount of money on maintenance every year, and if this begins to be affected by hair loss, the results can be devastating. 1 in 4 women will experience hair thinning, particularly as they age, and while stress from over-colouring and hair extensions can be a main cause, scalp and hormone issues, and illness can also be a contributing factor to female hair loss.

Here at Longevita, there are two different techniques that we use when it comes to our female hair transplants in Turkey. FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) is the main transplant method that we offer our patients, and this treatment is carried out by some of the most reputable specialists in the world. FUE involves healthy hair follicles being transplanted from the back or side of the head, to any thinning or balding areas with precision and care, in order to minimise the chances of scarring. FUE is one of the most advanced methods of female hair transplants in Turkey, and is carried out using the latest technology in the country. The second technique that we offer is FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation), which is provided for our patients when FUE is not deemed to be a suitable treatment. FUT is where groups of hair follicles are transplanted from a strip of skin that is harvested from the scalp using micro incisions to mimic the pattern of the natural hair growth.
