Hair Loss in Women - Natural Transplants, Hair Transplant Clinic



hair loss in women
Many women, like men, experience hair loss at some point in their life. Often this hair loss is genetic. In fact, about 25% of the hair restoration patients at our clinic are female. But it is important to know that women may also experience hair loss from other varied causes. These causes include medical (ie.thyroid), hormonal, pregnancy, perms (chemical), braids (traction alopecia) and many others.
When exploring hair loss treatment options and setting expectations for hair growth after a hair transplant its important to understand what type of female hair loss you suffer from. Depending on your type of loss, there may be nonsurgical and surgical options available.

The team at Natural Transplants advise our female patients to first see their primary care physician or dermatologist to ensure they are not having medical problems that are contributing to their loss. Often a panel of blood tests are necessary to ensure that there are no other contributing factors to a female patients condition.

African American female patients can experience hair loss due to the wearing of tight braids and salon treatments that left their hair and scalp burnt and damaged. We advise women and men not to wear their hair too tight and to be very careful who straightens their hair. Traction alopecia is the diagnosis of patients who had these unfortunate experiences.

It’s important to note that transplants in women do not stop future hair loss. Hair transplants simply try to replace lost hair and many times the amount transplanted is lower then the amount of loss.

Women should beware of hair restoration doctors who are overly optimistic about replacing their hair entirely. The ideal female patient has limited loss, won't continue to lose more hair in the future, and has nice donor hair. At Natural Transplants we always set realistic goals and expectations, especially for our female patients.
