Can a Woman be a Candidate for a Hair Transplant?February 1st, 2008
Q: I am female and thinning can I be a candidate for a Follicular Unit Hair Transplant?
A: If it turns out that you have female pattern hair loss, you may be a candidate a hair transplant, but would need to be evaluated by a doctor who specializes in surgical hair restoration.
In the evaluation, you should have your degree of hair loss assessed and donor supply measured, using an instrument called a densitometer, to be certain that you have enough permanent donor hair to meet your desired goals. For more information about hair loss in women, please see the Diagnosis of Hair Loss in Women page of the Bernstein Medical – Center for Hair Restoration website.
If you are thinking about your hair loss and would like to be evaluated, go to the physician consult page to schedule a consultation.Related Posts:
