Plastic Surgery Hair Restoration

Although hair transplants have traditionally been more common among men, they can also be performed on women experiencing hair loss.

There are various reasons a woman may consider a hair transplant including genetic hair loss (known as female pattern baldness), hormonal changes, or other medical conditions that lead to hair shedding and thinning.

Dr. Wise typically performs FUT hair transplants on women who are looking to overcome balding. Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) is a hair transplant technique that involves removing a strip of scalp from the donor area which is usually the back or sides of the scalp, dissecting it into individual follicular units, and then transplanting those units into the recipient area where hair is balding or thinning.

Here are some key points related to FUT hair transplants for women:

  • Consultation: A thorough assessment by Dr. Wise is essential to determine if a woman is a suitable candidate for FUT. He will consider factors such as the pattern of thinning, the cause of hair loss, and the patient’s overall health.
  • Procedure: An FUT procedure involves removing a strip of scalp, and suturing the donor area. The extracted strip is then divided into individual follicular units, which are then meticulously placed in the recipient area.
  • Scarring: FUT hair transplants may leave a linear scar in the donor area and although it is typically well-hidden by surrounding hair, the patient should be aware of this aspect.
  • Recovery: Recovery time after a FUT hair transplant may vary, but patients are usually advised to follow post-operative care instructions provided by Dr. Wise and his medical staff.
  • Results: Patients may notice results a few months after the procedure as the transplanted hair starts to grow. Full results may take up to 1 year.

It’s essential for women considering hair transplants to consult with a qualified and experienced surgeon, such as Dr. Wise, to assess whether they are suitable candidates for the procedure or not.
