Women’s hair loss is caused by several things. This can be triggered by the production of an excessive male antigen called DHT, or it can be a natural result of a number of environmental events and bodily stress. Before deciding to do a female hair transplant, it is very important for you to use diagnostic techniques to the point where you are sure why hair loss has occurred.
‘Hair loss in women’ (which is also known as ‘Hårtap hos kvinner’ in the Norwegian language) caused by things such as a diet or a level of hormone that is indecisive because of pregnancy or menopause will negate the effectiveness of hair transplantation for women as a treatment.
The correct treatment in cases of hair loss, where the level of nutrition or a temporary hormone level, which is to blame, is to wait for nutrients or hormones to restore balance in a woman’s body. At this point, the hair tends to grow back.

If a woman really needs a hair transplant, she can get it at a good hair loss clinic. Modern hair transplant surgery is much clearer than its predecessor: it uses small pieces of hair and skin, rather than large channels, which means natural hairline can be achieved.
Modern hair transplants either use very small transplant patches or medium-sized ones. Medium-sized transplant patch or multi-unit graft containing between 3 and 6 hairs. Hair grafts are chosen for the direction of their natural growth – so that each hair, after being transplanted, must grow in the direction that hair loss first grows. This transplant usually takes between 10 and 16 weeks to show its full effect.
Hair transplant usually takes between two and four hours. This is done under local anesthesia and the patient is considered an outpatient. A scalpel is used to cut small gaps in the donor area, from where the skin and hair are extracted. The wound is closed with small stitches.
After hair transplant surgery, it is possible that women can experience numbness in the donor area. Numbness is completely normal and can last for six or eight months. Sometimes, patients will experience swelling in the bald area, which occurs several days after the operation and lasts for three to four days.
