Whether due to illness or experienced from birth onwards, hair loss is often a decisive experience and great problem for women. In contrast to men, the pattern and causes of women's hair loss differ, entailing different forms of treatment. In most cases hair loss in women is diffuse, often greatly reducing the donor area. Convincing results have been achieved in women through supporting medication. The majority of female patients react well to a combination of medication and surgery.
The natural hairline of a man differs from that of a woman. Male transsexuals and women after hormonal transition and sex reassignment surgery often want their hairline changed, making it a lot more womanly. A hair transplant does not just lead to a harmonious appearance, it also has a positive effect on one's own body feeling. Attention should be paid to the hormonal reassignment treatment being completed before any hair transplantation takes place, as hormonal ups and downs can cause transplanted hair to be rejected, with hair loss making further inroads. Generally speaking, an in-depth and competent consultation is to be recommended.
