Hair Transplant in Women
Losing hair might be tough for men, but for women, it is nothing short of traumatic, because for them, their hair is a part of their identity. So, when women start noticing excessive hair in their combs or towels, they start to panic and look for any way, in which they can cover up the hair loss.
What is Hair Transplant in Women?
What is interesting is that most women think that hair transplant is meant only for men, but the truth is that hair transplant is not a gender specific procedure and can be done for men as well as women.

Extraction of grafts from the donor area

Transplanting the grafts in the recipient area
The grafts which have been extracted are then meticulously placed into small holes or slits, that are created in the recipient area. The experience of the doctor will be visible in the manner in which the grafts are placed. The most crucial aspects here are the direction as well the angle in which the hair is placed. These will ensure that the transplanted hair looks natural and grow in the same manner as the actual hair.
