How Long Do Hair Transplanted Grafts Last in Women?

It depends on the cause of the woman’s hair loss. If the woman had miniaturization of the donor hair, then this hair may not last a long time. If the donor hair is normal, it should last a woman’s lifetime. Many women with genetic balding have miniaturization in the donor area and, when this is more than 20%, I consider that woman not to be a candidate for a hair transplant. The miniaturized hairs may not last, and any woman asking for a hair transplant other than a hairline lowering procedure should ask the doctor to evaluate the donor area for miniaturization.
