Hair loss in women is more common than most people realise

At Better Hair Transplant Clinics, we see a large number of female patients enquiring about hair restoration surgery. More often than not, a lot of these women come to us after exploring many other options for hair loss treatment specifically designed to women.

For women who are suffering or have suffered with permanent hair loss or female pattern baldness, hair transplantation is often the best chance of restoring their hair.

Ensuring the correct diagnosis

Ensuring the correct diagnosis on a client to client basis is crucial. Every individual patient that is evaluated in one of our clinics will undergo a routine hormonal and medical evaluation to help find the reason for their hair loss. This evaluation is vastly different for women than it is for men.

We take your hair loss incredibly seriously and by performing a disease specific medical evaluation we are able to establish the cause of your hair loss. Evaluating a complete medical history is the first step when dealing with women experiencing hair loss and this will be carried out during your initial consultation. Diffuse hair loss can be caused by a variety of conditions outside of ‘hereditary balding’. The disease specific evaluation is performed as it helps us to establish whether or not the hair loss treatment is will be best managed by medical treatments, surgical treatments or a combination of both options.

The final decision on the surgery is usually dependent on whether or not your hair loss appears to have stopped, if your loss is mainly at the hairline and if the balding is concentrated in one or two main areas.

Hair restoration for women

There are thought to be approximately 30 individual conditions that are believed to cause hair loss in women and many of these can be managed and resolved by using the correct treatment. Any women experiencing hair loss should consult with their physician to help determine the cause of their hair loss as this will eliminate any potentially serious medical conditions before beginning to look into and evaluate hair loss or restoration treatments.

Common causes of female hair loss

Hair loss in women

The prospect of hair loss is, more often than not, undesirable for anyone but is well known to occur in men. Losing hair as a woman however is often a disturbing experience that often leaves women feeling a sense of shame which is only made worse by the correlation between conventional beauty standards and having a full head of hair. The social stigma that is attached to female hair loss can often have a drastic affect on a womans confidence and personal relationships as well as taking a strong grip on their day to day life.

The media often portray that women don’t experience any significant hair loss or balding, however this is a myth and we are here to help you every step of the way with advice tailored to your specific situation and treatments needs.

As this is your pre-existing natural hair, simply moved from one area to another, it will grow as normal and is completely permanent. These is no need for pills and potions to maintain it, simply enjoy your natural hair.

Female pattern baldness

Female pattern baldness, also known as Alopecia Areata, as an autoimmune disorder that affects over 30 million women worldwide. Women who suffer from the condition are genetically oversensitive to the hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT) which causes a pervasive thinning of the hair follicles which in turn results in a smaller hair shaft and thinner hair. Eventually, this leads to a complete cessation of follicle production which is usually concentrated on the crown of the head.

In addition to genetics, this condition is worsened by naturally occurring things such as ageing and menopause. For women suffering with female pattern baldness, receding hairlines are often very rare.
