Women's Hair Loss: Causes and Treatments
Hair loss can be difficult to deal with and can affect self-esteem. Psychological studies have shown that women are much more upset by hair loss than a typical male. A woman experiencing scalp hair loss requires a thorough history and visual examination of the scalp to assess if she is an appropriate candidate for hair transplants. Different medical conditions such as low iron, thyroid imbalances, certain medications, and some scalp diseases are not appropriate for hair transplants and are treated with other non-surgical remedies. The doctor will assess each patient individually to ascertain her candidacy for transplants, determine the reason for the scalp hair loss and develop an appropriate treatment plan.
