Differences between hair transplants

Hair transplant differs depending on gender

For those people interested in getting hair transplants, the goal of surgery can change based on the gender. For most men, large and wide coverage of their receding hairline, crown areas are the main concern while for women, correcting an uneven hairline is a priority.

There are two main kinds of hair transplants: incision (strip surgery) or non-incision, commonly called FUE surgery. There are advantages and disadvantages of both, and the choice of surgery is up to the patient.

Incision or strip (FUT) surgery 
An incision is made, a strip of skin is cut from the scalp, and then hairs are extracted and transplanted.

Surgery times are relatively shorter, with lower costs and good effectiveness, but there is an unavoidable linear scar at the back of the head. In addition, since the incision area requires stiches and sutures, recovery time can be longer. Compared to FUE surgery, there tends to be more pain and swelling.

Non incision FUE surgery
No incision on the scalp is required, hair grafts are extracted manually.

Each hair graft is extracted one by one hence surgery times are comparatively longer with increased costs due to the increased labor. However, since there is no incision on the scalp, scarring is minimal and virtually unnoticeable. An advantage of FUE surgery is that there is also low chance of pain, swelling, and other complications.

▶ Female hair transplant surgery design is important 
Many women are getting hair transplant as a way to correct or change their hairline shape. A rounded hairline gives off a feminine image, and many women with naturally high foreheads opt for this surgery.

Typical cases that require hairline correction are: a wide forehead, uneven hairline, sharp and angular forehead and others. Each case requires special care especially when making the hairline surgery design.
