Hair transplant: Women are losing hair, a new study finds
Hair transplantation is a controversial procedure in which a donor’s own hair is shaved away.
However, some studies have suggested it could be used for treating certain conditions, such as those related to ageing and mental health.
In a new survey of over 700 women, researchers at the University of Washington looked at how women felt about the procedure.
They found that the majority of women had a positive view of the procedure and thought it would be a good option for some patients.
“The study results were consistent with what we saw in other research that has shown women tend to be supportive of hair transplants,” lead author Elizabeth Miller said in a press release.
“It is a question of how much they have to experience the surgery to become fully comfortable with the idea.”
The survey was published in the journal PLOS ONE.
