Female Hair Loss

Feller & Bloxham offers expert hair transplantation for women in the Philadelphia region.

Experts estimate that 1 in 5 women will experience some degree of hair loss during their lifetime. This is usually caused by hormonal changes after menopause, aging, and illnesses. This can happen in small patches with men, but it is more common for women to notice a subtle thinning around the scalp.

Some women with this condition choose to wear extensions or a hair wig. Some people resort to topical prescriptive medications, but their effectiveness may vary. These drugs prevent further loss, but they don’t stimulate any new follicle growth.

A transplant procedure may be the best option for those who aren’t interested in either of these options.

The Right Candidates for Hair Transplant

Diffuse hair loss is common in women. This refers to a gradual thinning of the hair that occurs evenly over the entire scalp.

Because they don’t have enough stable follicles to allow for successful results, the females mentioned are not suitable candidates for transplants.

You can simply remove any follicles that are insecure from the head and they will fall out when they are transplanted.

This procedure would be beneficial to approximately 2-5% of adult females.

These women would be great candidates for the procedure:

  • You have experienced hair loss due to traction (hormonal or mechanical) alopecia.
  • A distinct pattern of baldness that includes hairline recession and vertex thinning
  • Who don’t have an area of donor that is affected by androgenetic Alopecia
  • Have you had cosmetic or plastic surgery? Do you want to cover up the areas around your incisions?
  • Hair loss caused by trauma, including scarring from accidents or burns.
  • Alopecia marginalis is a similar condition to traction.
