Although hair loss remains principally a problem that plagues the male gender, women are not immune from this affliction. In fact, women typically lose 100 to 125 hairs per day and may exhibit noticeable thinning as they mature. Unlike men who lose hair, female hair loss may not be as socially acceptable.
Typically, a global thinning occurs with the most dramatic loss around the top of the head. However, women can also show another type of hair loss that occurs in the frontal hairline or just along the temporal hair-bearing area. Although many external factors may influence hair loss, inherited genetic factors in women remain a principal reason for hair loss in the general population. Typically, hair loss begins to be noticeable in the late twenties and accelerates after the onset of menopause, as imbalance of male to female hormone levels may preside.
Historically, women may not be as satisfied with traditional hair restoration methods because the amount of density that is necessary to achieve a satisfying result is difficult to attain. Our method is particularly well suited to female hair loss because of the density that can be attained with a combination of multiple sized grafts. As medical options for hair loss may produce unwanted side effects in women, surgical hair restoration may provide the optimal solution.
