It is true that hair loss is most commonly experienced by male patients. However the condition does affect women more often than many realize. So if you’re a woman and are starting to experience excessive hair loss, it is important to realize that you are not alone and there are treatment options available.
Generally, one in five women will suffer from some form of hair loss in their lives. This is a relatively high statistic which has led medical science to several new and innovative treatment options. When treating your hair loss as a woman, it is important to see a physician who specializes in hair loss in women and understands the unique challenges presented by your condition. For example, in women, hair loss is widespread across the scalp and not found in patterns like it commonly is in male patients.
Follicular unit hair transplantation has evolved as the gold standard in procedures to reverse hair loss in women. Dr. Kimmel specializes in this procedure and has successfully performed hundreds of transplantations.
It is performed by removing a “donor” strip of healthy hair from elsewhere on you scalp and transplanting those healthy hairs in the balding area. The surgery is performed while you are awake and aware of your surroundings, but with anesthesia is pain free. Your hair transplant may be paired with topical products to promote the regrowth of your new follicles.
