Treating Hair Loss for Women through Hair Transplant
Women suffer from balding and hair thinning just as men do, although the percentage of those affected is typically lower than their male counterparts. It’s normal for people to lose between 50-100 hairs each day, but when excessive hair loss for women leads to a broader part and more visible scalp, they often suffer emotionally and socially thus start looking for options like hair transplant. If you’re one of the millions of females experiencing genetic, androgenic alopecia, you are not alone.
We tend to associate pattern baldness with men more than women. That’s because hereditary hair loss, also known as androgenic alopecia, affects up to 80% of men in their lifetimes. That said, women account for at least 40% of the clients that we treat. Many of these begin to notice the acceleration of shedding after pregnancy or during menopause.
Because it’s a less commonly known issue, we find that women shy away from discussing baldness or hair transplant procedures. Most who choose this restoration procedure value their privacy and above all, want to keep the surgery recovery discrete.
With today’s advances in hair transplant technology, you’ll never have to divulge your secret to anyone if you don’t want to. Women are under much pressure to look their best, with a specific focus on their hair. As a result, many desire shiny, healthy hair because it symbolizes beauty and is seen universally as attractive. In a society less willing to talk openly about female hair loss, women tend to suffer alone, sometimes resulting in depression which affects their daily life.
Thankfully, more awareness about women losing hair and scientific advancements mean they can have the same success and natural-looking results as men.
