At Dezire Clinic we understand that hair loss in women needs to be treated with different approach than hair loss in men and it requires a different approach when considering hair and eyebrow restoration in women. In men genetics plays a major role whereas in women underlying conditions are more influential in thinning of hair. Alopecia means baldness just like men, it can be seen in women also. In alopecia the hair loss is not complete, it is seen in patches. In alopecia the thinning of the hair is seen on the top and front of the head. Almost one third of women have suffered from this condition, especially after menopause this condition is seen. The hair loss per day is around 50 to 100 or in some cases it can be even more. In female pattern of baldness when the affected hair sheds down at that place root grows. Female hair transplant in Delhi, Pune, Gurgaon, Bangalore, Ahmedabad

The reason for hair loss in females can be many such as some form of physical and emotional stress, high level of vitamin A, pregnancy, deficiency of Vitamin B12, anaemia, hypothyroidism, weight loss, PCOS, certain  medications etc.

Establishing the Correct Diagnosis:

Every patient who visits our clinic for hair loss is evaluated for hormonal and medical problems. Here at Dezire clinic, we take your hair loss seriously and know that the workup and evaluation of female hair loss is quite different than men. The first step in evaluating the cause of hair loss in women is a complete history and physical. Our team at Dezire will make sure that your history and physical are thoroughly done. Following tests typically done for a patient:

  • Serum iron, serum ferritin, and total iron binding capacity (TIBC)
  • Thyroid levels (T3, T4, TSH)
  • Complete blood count (CBC)

Grade of Baldness is decided by Ludwig’s scale:

Female Hairloss Patterns

Type I. In this stage, hair loss is considered to be mild. Hair loss is not easily noticeable as frontal hairline is not affected. Hair loss is seen in top and front of the scalp. In this condition hair loss is mild and the frontal hairline remains unaffected. Many women have difficulty noticing hair loss. Hair is loss from the top and front of the scalp. The hair loss may be noticed if it is parted down at the centre of the scalp. 

Type II. Type II hair loss is considered moderate. Thinning, shedding, decrease in volume can occur in this stage. Increase in center part continues. Based on the severity, a hair transplant procedure may be a viable option for women who exhibit a Type II classification. In this condition the hair loss is moderate, women may notice thinning, shedding and decrease in their hair volume and widening of their centre part.

Type III. Type III is the most extreme classification of female hair loss. In this stage, hair becomes so thin that it has difficulty camouflaging the scalp, rendering it visible to the naked eye.

A disease specific lab work is important as that will decide whether medical, surgical or a combination approach is needed to treat your hair loss.The final decision to go for hair transplant is dependent upon whether your hair loss has finally stopped, location of your hair loss, and if the balding is concentrated in one or two areas. As compared to males baldness and hair loss problem is less common in females but it has more devastating effects not only cosmetically but also psychological. While male hair loss is seen as inevitable for a large proportion of men in the community, female hair loss is far less common and therefore less culturally acceptable, which only adds to the stigma for those experiencing it. In many cases the damage to a woman’s self-confidence can affect her whole quality of life. As a general rule, female hair loss is quite different to male hair loss. Females experience a thinning out of mid scalp and crown hair and usually retain their frontal hairline.

Who Is a Candidate For Hair or Eyebrow Restoration?

  • Women with thinning scalp hair and almost all women who have thinning eyebrows.
  • Burns victims who have lost some but not all hair. Someone who want to restructure their hairline.
  • Women with mechanical or traction alopecia (non-hormonal) resulting in hair loss. Women with a peculiar pattern of baldness, similar to that of male pattern baldness- hairline recession, vertex thinning (on the crown or top of the scalp), and a donor area that is not affected by Androgenetic Alopecia.
  • Women with hair loss due to trauma, including burn victims, scarring from accidents, and chemical burns.
  • Women who have undergone cosmetic or plastic surgery and are concerned about hair loss around the incision sites.
  • Women diagnosed with traction alopecia or alopecia marginalis.
  • Women who want to thicken or restore eyebrows.

Once the decision to perform hair transplant surgery is made, you’ll have to decide between 2 methods, Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT), and a simpler and less invasive surgical method called Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE).

Patient’s hair is transplanted in naturally occurring groups of 1 to 4 hairs, called follicular units hence it is called as Follicular Unit Transplantation. These follicular units also contain sebaceous (oil) glands, nerves, a small muscle, and occasional fine vellus hairs.

In an FUE hair transplantation, each follicular unit is individually taken directly from the scalp without removing strip of tissue. Hair follicles are removed in a random fashion and it results ins less density in the donor area that many say is not even noticeable.

Between the two procedures, FUE is the most desirable cosmetic procedure because it does not leave a large linear scar at the back of your scalp. Besides leaving no scar, FUE requires no sutures or staples hence the healing procedure is much faster and also there is no risk of bleeding or nerve damage. Additionally, this procedure can be performed in an outpatient setting under local anesthesia which means the patient doesn’t have to stay in the hospital and can resume work the next day after procedure. Some more advantages of Unshaven FUE procedure include:

  • Maintaining the natural angle and direction of hair giving the hair absolutely natural look.
  • Thickening of the thinning areas of hair without damaging existing hair follicles.
  • Utilizing dense packing procedure to achieve higher density of hair in treated areas.
  • Minimal scarring in both donor and recipient areas.
  • Using unshaven FUE technique in females allows them to get the procedure without shaving their heads or any part of the body. Hair in donor area are transplanted full length, hence it’s possible to return to work the next day without anyone even noticing about the procedure.
