Dr. Bernstein is frequently asked about hair transplant procedures for women, and in this video he discusses the differences between treating men and women.
Read a partial transcript of the video:
Hair transplantation has been traditionally thought of as a procedure that men get. Over the last few years, we’ve been transplanting more and more women patients and seeing many more women patients for hair loss. It turns out that about 40% of women have a significant amount of hair loss in their lifetime. In the past, women have felt that their hair loss was almost taboo, and I think it is more acceptable now that women know that hair loss is relatively common, that it’s not just a bad thing but something to be treated if you can. So we are seeing more and more women at our practice.
