Hair Replacement for Women
It is estimated that 30 million American women experience hair loss. Female alopecia is more common than you may realize – male hair loss may be more prevalent and noticeable, but many women struggle with this problem. Thinning hair can affect more than just the appearance of women, and it can impact self-esteem, confidence and interactions with others. At Elite Hair Transplant Center, we welcome the chance to give our female patients back their confidence with our hair replacement for women at our facility in Beverly Hills, CA.
The majority of hair loss cases in women are hereditary. Female pattern baldness is the most common type of hair loss, which is often related to genetics. There are other factors that can result in hair loss in women, including hormonal shifts, especially at menopause, as well as illnesses, medical treatments and traction alopecia. Whatever the cause of hair loss, it can be traumatic for women who experience extensive loss of hair.
Female Hair Transplant Surgery
There have been incredible advancements in hair replacement in the last decades. More and more women are seeking treatment for their hair loss, including undergoing hair transplant surgery. At Elite Hair Transplant Center, we offer the latest methods of hair transplants that can harvest hair from the thicker areas on the scalp and transfer hair grafts to thin areas. We have two options for female hair replacement:
- FUT – Follicular unit transfer, or FUT, removes strips of hair follicles from the back of the scalp. The hair grafts are separated and transplanted in the desired area.
- FUE with NeoGraft – NeoGraft® uses follicular unit extraction (FUE) through an automated, pneumatic system. This procedure does not require incisions or stitches, which is desirable by many female patients wanting to avoid linear scars on their scalp.
Dr. Obaid Chaudhry is a highly talented and skilled plastic surgeon. His artistic placement of hair grafts can fill in thin areas on the scalp to achieve a natural appearance. If you are experiencing female hair loss, Dr. O.C. can recommend the best hair transplant option to achieve the thicker hair you desire.
