What are the issues with transplants causing damage to other follicles for women? Do growth hormones such as KGF help post surgery?
With women there is a slightly higher risk of “shock” hair loss- however I have found that with the use of very small recipient sites measuring each less than 0.8 mm on average, along with the use of careful technique, I am able to keep this hair loss to a minimum. Finally- as far as GH and other similar agents- there is some anecdotal evidence of a subtle thickening of existing hairs, however, this has not in any way been proven efficacious.
