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 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.
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.
