Hair Transplantation– Female Pattern Hair Loss
If there is sufficient donor hair on the back of the head, women can be transplanted one to three times in the area of thinning to recover decent density. Sometimes the thinning goes over the sides and back of the head so that there is insufficient donor hair to do all of it. Generally, in these cases, if one starts at the hairline and transplants back to the apex (or highest point of the head), a drastic improvement in appearance will be had by adding several thousand hairs to the top of the head. It is not necessary or possible to transplant the entire thinning area in many women.
We have been seeing ever more females with hair loss in the office. Usually this is a typical female-pattern hair loss, although occasionally there is a scarring alopecia or alopecia areata. The FUE method is normally best here.
