In women, it is even more important for a personal visit with our physician, Dr. Puig. Female hair loss can occur for many more reasons.

When it comes to women with female pattern hair loss, Hair Restoration is one of the few and most important options they have for a permanent real result. Unlike men, hair loss in women is more often the result of other disease, so it is important to seek the help of a physician who is experienced in the diagnostic evaluation of women with hair loss. Also, inherited female pattern hair loss can affect the donor area in about 20% of those with the problem. This means seeking the care of an experienced physician who will take the time to make the correct diagnosis, and design a special treatment plan, is critical for females with hair loss.

The procedure for women is similar to the one performed on men with a few important variations in the technique. These can and will be discussed with the Doctor during the consultation. We are also a frequent choice for women with hair loss resulting from scarring associated with face or brow lifts or other surgeries. Women have also discovered us for transplants to the eyebrows and eyelashes.
