Thanks for sharing! I would like to add some points to it.

When considering genetic-related hair loss, only 30-50% of women are good candidates for hair transplants. This can be a debatable issue, but not all women are good candidates. These women have poor hair quality.


It all Depend upon the Women health Doctor will take all information from the patient about his history,health condition,any medicine taken before–In female pattern baldness, however, these donor areas are usually unstable. They are thinning, just like the other areas of the head. The donor areas in women are affected by follicle-killing DHT. That means that if you remove hair and accompanying follicles from these donor areas in women and transplant them to other areas, it’s just going to fall out. Any doctor who would attempt to transplant hair from an unstable donor site is potentially unethical and may just be trying to take economic advantage of the patient.
According to experts a very small percentage of women are candidates for hair transplant surgery. About 2% to 5% of women with hair loss will benefit from this type of procedure. They are:

Women who have suffered hair loss due to mechanical or traction alopecia (nonhormonal).
Women who have had previous cosmetic or plastic surgery and are concerned about hair loss around the incision sites.
Women who have a distinct pattern of baldness, similar to that of male pattern baldness. This includes hairline recession, vertex thinning (on the crown or top of the scalp), and a donor area that is not affected by androgenetic alopecia.
Women who suffer hair loss due to trauma, including burn victims, scarring from accidents, and chemical burns.
Women with alopecia marginalis, a condition that looks very similar to traction alopecia.
