Female Hair Loss
Feller & Bloxham offer expert hair transplant for women living in the New York and Tri-State area.
Some experts estimate that one in five women will encounter some level of hair loss in their lifetime. Usually that is caused by aging, hormonal issues after menopause, and illness. While with men it’s common for this to happen in patches, women most often experience a subtle thinning all around their scalp.
Some females with this problem choose to wear extensions or a wig. Others choose topical prescriptive drugs, although their effectiveness can vary. These drugs only prevent any further loss but don’t stimulate any noticeable new follicle growth.
For those who don’t feel drawn to either of these options, a transplant surgery may be their best bet.
The Right Candidates for Hair Transplant
Most women have diffuse hair loss, which is a thinning that happens evenly all over the scalp.
The females described do not make good candidates for transplants because they do not have stable enough follicles in any area of their head for effective results.
If you remove follicles from any unstable parts of the head they are simply going to fall out after they are transplanted.
It’s estimated that around 2-5% of adult females would actually benefit from this kind of procedure.
The women who would make good candidates for this procedure are for those who:
- Have experienced hair loss because of mechanical or non-hormonal alopecia (traction alopecia)
- Have a distinct pattern of baldness, including hairline recession, vertex thinning
- Who do not have a donor area affected by androgenetic Alopecia
- Had cosmetic or plastic surgery and want to cover up areas around the incision sites
- Experienced hair loss due to trauma: including scarring for accidents and burns
- Suffer from alopecia marginalis, a condition similar to traction alopecia
