You know how distressing hair loss can be for a woman if you suffer from it. You\’re not alone if you experience hair loss. Harvard Health reports that one-third of all women experience hair loss during their lifetime, and up to two-thirds of post-menopausal women suffer from thinning hair. Alopecia pattern affecting both men and women is known as androgenic alopecia. A woman\’s hair begins to thin gradually where it parts, followed by diffuse hair loss that emanates from the crown.
Hair loss can cause an almost \”see-through\” appearance in advanced female cases. Unlike men, women rarely suffer from dramatic temple or cown recession, and they rarely become bald.
Nevertheless, statistics and definitions cannot convey your feelings, nor can they restore your hair. How can we do this?
In order to rule out an underlying medical problem that may be causing your hair loss, you should consult a physician. Among these are:
- Connective Tissue Disease
- Hormonal Imbalances
- Thyroid Disease
- Vitamin Deficiencies
- Gynecological Conditions
- Emotional Stress
- Autoimmune Skin Diseases (scarring alopecia)
As a next step, you should rule out other physical causes of your hair loss that are unrelated to female pattern baldness. Among these are:
- Inflammation of the follicles causes hair loss
- Surgery and aesthetic procedures that cause loss (such as brow lifts and face lifts)
- It is caused by wearing extremely tight hairstyles such as cornrows that exert a constant pull on the hair; this is called traction alopecia
You probably suffer from female pattern hair loss if none of these apply to you. Your doctor may recommend a hair transplant for you.
Are you a good candidate for a hair transplant?
In terms of female pattern loss, donor hair quality is the single most important factor. Donor hair consists of follicles that have been selected as healthy and robust enough to be taken from one part of the head and placed in another, where they will survive and thrive. The specific quality I am looking for is low miniaturization – a low percentage (less than 30%) of hairs must not have smaller diameters than \”normal\” hair. In this case, you may be eligible for a hair transplant, which involves taking hair follicles from other areas of your head and transplanting them to areas where there is thinning hair.
In addition, sufficient donor hair can be used to correct or change a high hairline, repair damage to the hairline or sideburns caused by plastic surgery, or treat hair loss caused by scarring or trauma.
