Special considerations for women hair transplants
Published on June 1, 2011 by Glenn Charles
If a woman gets a hair transplant are there any special considerations as to how she has to have her hair styled after surgery? Can she grow her hair long?
The postoperative care for both men and women is the same.
Generally, females have longer hair prior to the hair transplant procedure and can therefore cover up the visual remnants of the surgical procedure easier than a male.
The care is essentially the same and the same restrictions for exercise, hair washing and hair styling including hair coloring or dying are true for a woman as a man.
Yes, the female patient can indeed grow their hair as long as they wish. It really depends on how long they decide to wait before they get their hair cut.
