Hair loss in women is a common problem that we have successfully treated at the Hair Restoration Center of New York and New Jersey. Women can lose their hair in the same pattern that is common to men, i.e., recession of the hairline, often with thinning or balding back toward the crown. Typically, the female pattern of balding (FPB) spares the hairline, which may thin but doesn’t recede, while thinning to balding occurs at or behind the hairline, spreading to the crown
About a third of Dr. Feinberg’s female patients have the male pattern problem (MPB), and transplanting requires re-establishment of the rounded hairline associated with women, which usually requires enhancing of the so-called temporal points on the sides in front of the ears. Receding hairline in women can be treated and will not only bring back your beautiful hairline but your confidence as well.
For the other two-thirds, transplanting means filling in the thinned areas in order to provide better hair density. While the robotic FUE procedure can be used for most women, the traditional FUT may work better. This is because when the grafts are prepared under the microscope, follicular units can be combined to create grafts with more hairs, thus providing better density and coverage.
The following are some examples of female hair transplant before and after photos. All procedures have been performed by Dr. Feinberg at the Hair Restoration Center of New York and New Jersey. To better understand the following gallery, start by determining what kind of female pattern baldness you may be experiencing. We use the Ludwig classification of female pattern baldness to identify which stage a patient is at, and our photos are labeled by their Ludwig classification.
