Treating Female Pattern Baldness and Repairing Distortion and Scarring from Prior Cosmetic Surgery
In women, the role of hair transplantation is less common than men and often the losing of hair is very distressing. While over 95% of all hair transplant procedures are performed on men, women are candidates and undergo hair transplant procedures for the treatment of several conditions such as inherited female pattern balding, low thyroid or iron levels, hormonal imbalances such as elevated testosterone, binge dieting, and pregnancy. Another cause of hair loss in women is the distortion of hair growth and scarring as a result of prior facial plastic surgery. Most of these conditions however are treatable, giving women new options with different techniques than used in men that when performed correctly, consistently achieve excellent results and minimize complications.
