Hair transplants are recommended in many situations, alopecia being one of them. Most of the times we hear about hair transplants in men, as they are more prone to hair loss than women, however, there are also situations where women are good candidates for hair transplants for alopecia along the front line of the scalp. This type of alopecia is known as traction alopecia and can be successfully treated in our hair transplant clinic in Turkey.

Below, our hair transplant surgeons in Istanbul explain how they treat traction alopecia.

Causes of traction alopecia explained by our hair transplant doctors in Turkey

The most common signs of traction alopecia are:

  • in women who keep their hair in tight ponytails or other hairdos which require a tight pulling of the hair;
  • various types of head accessories, such as dreadlocks, weaves, and extensions can cause traction alopecia in women;
  • most of the times, traction alopecia appears along the front line, temples or the nape;
  • traction alopecia is not considered a medical condition, as it is not caused by genetic factors.

Another interesting fact about traction alopecia is that it doesn’t usually appear in men, however, it can be found in old people and even in pets.

In our hair transplant clinic in Turkey, patients can find the latest solutions for resolving traction alopecia.

The cost of hair transplant in Turkey for alopecia will depend on the number of grafts used, as well as the technique or techniques. Our hair transplant doctor may decide that the most suitable approach is a combined one, meaning that the overall costs will be influenced by the number and the complexity of the procedures required to achieve the desired results.

When is hair transplant recommended for curing traction alopecia?

As mentioned above, traction alopecia is not considered a medical condition, which is why our hair transplant surgeons in Turkey do not automatically recommend the hair transplant as a solution. Instead, they will first do a complete checkup of the scalp and recommend a daily routine of the hair and, in certain cases, medication and shampoos which can help hair regeneration.

Hair transplants in cases of traction alopecia are recommended in severe cases and only after other less invasive methods have been used. The FUE method is the most employed and cost-effective approach in our hair transplant clinic in Turkey.
