More Women getting Hair Transplants


Every year, more and more women are asking about options for hair transplantation and about one-quarter of my hair transplant patients are women.  Last month, I posted a blog outling the hair characteristics that would make a woman a good candidate for the procedure.

What are the latest trends around the world in hair transplantation among women?

A recent study, released by the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgeons, indicates that the number of female hair transplant patients increased 24 % since 2004. In 2010, 14.1 % of all hair transplant patients worldwide were female and 85.1 % of patients were male.
