Does this procedure work for women who do not have localized hair loss. My hair has always been thin?
Yes, it can, to some degree, but most effectively if your donor area (back of the scalp) is somewhat thicker in density and the transplanted hairs are concentrated into certain areas - most commonly the frontal region and partline - to provide the most cosmetic benefit. I see many female patients who have been told by other hair transplant surgeons that nothing can be done for them, yet in many of these cases the reality is that a procedure can improve their hair loss situation - perhaps not as dramatically as they would want, but it is a definite improvement.
