The Causes of Female Hair Loss

Dr Paul Cotterill provides valuable insights and guidance regarding the causes of hair loss and the potential for a hair transplant procedure. Understanding the underlying factors contributing to hair loss is crucial in determining the appropriate treatment approach. While each case is unique and requires an individualized assessment, several general causes of female hair loss should be considered:



  • Poor diet: Lack of proper nutrition can impact hair health and contribute to hair loss.

  • Crash diets: Rapid weight loss disrupts the hair growth cycle.

  • Damaging hairstyles: Tension and pulling can lead to hair loss around the hairline and temple region.

  • Iron deficiency: Insufficient iron levels can disrupt the hair growth cycle and result in hair loss.

  • Stress: High levels of stress, whether emotional or physical, can cause hair loss.

  • Hormonal changes: Hormonal imbalances can affect the hair growth cycle and lead to hair thinning or hair loss.

  • Genetic factors: Similar to hair loss in men, female hair loss is often genetic in nature. If the women in your family have a history of hair loss, then you may experience it too. 


You should remain especially alert to any indications that your hair is thinning. If you notice the first signs of hair loss, seek treatment to stop the hair loss and restore the lost hair.

Hair Transplants after Plastic Surgery

Facelifts and brow lifts can remove wrinkles and give you a youthful appearance. But when done incorrectly, these procedures can lead to unsightly scarring and unnatural hairlines. During a brow or facelift, incisions are made along the hairline to adjust, tighten and reshape the contours of the face. These incisions are meant to heal and be hidden in your hairline, but improper procedures can lead to visible scars. Pulling the skin back to tighten it can also warp the hairline and give it an unnatural shape, causing a completely new aesthetic problem. If either of these issues has occurred after your facelift or brow lift, our doctor can perform a female hair transplant in Toronto to correct the problem. By taking follicles from a donor site, usually at the back of the head, Dr Paul Cotterill will be able to cover up visible scars and create a natural hairline around your face. Call our office today to discuss your options.


Female Hair Transplant – Is It the Best Option?

The first thing to consider is the cause of your hair loss. The effectiveness of hair transplantation correlates to what is causing your hair loss. Hereditary female hair loss may respond well to hair transplantation, while other causes may not. Some factors to remember when considering hair transplantation include the following:

  • Family history of female hair loss

  • Age at which hair loss begins

  • Progression rate of hair loss

  • Patterns of hair loss

  • Donor hair availability

  • Results of medical treatments used to slow or halt hair loss

  • Patient expectations of hair transplantation outcome

Female Hair Transfer Procedure 

The female hair transplant surgery may provide long-term solutions for women with thinning hair. During your appointment, Dr Paul Cotterill will thoroughly examine your hair and balding pattern to determine where the transplants are needed. He will then identify a donor site from where the follicles are harvested and prepared for relocation. Following that, he will place each hair delicately to ensure a natural look. Please note that you may require several sessions based on the severity of your hair loss and requirements.

The Cycle of Hair Growth

There are four main stages of the hair growth cycle:

  • The anagen phase: Also called the growing phase, it can last from two years to eight years.

  • The catagen phase: During this phase, the hair follicles shrink. This period can last for two to three weeks.

  • The telogen phase: It takes about two to four months. By the end of this phase, the hair falls out.

  • The exogen phase: Is considered to be the final stage of the cycle when old hairs are shed from the scalp.

Results of the Female Hair Transplant

Individual results and timelines may vary for each patient. In some cases, patients may require more than one procedure to correct the area of hair thinning completely. Please note it will take you a few months to notice growth from the transplanted follicles. It may take you up to one year to see the final results of your procedure. Results may include:

  • Natural-looking hair density

  • Reduced bald spots

  • Overall fuller hair

  • Enhanced confidence

  • Positive change in appearance 

Dr Paul Cotterill develops personalized treatment plans tailored to each patient's specific needs and condition. With his expertise and patient-centred approach, he is a trusted choice for successful hair restoration.

Benefits of Female Hair Transplant

Most of us consider hair an important facet of our personality. Although many of us try to cover our hair loss by wearing wigs, hair extensions, or concealing hairstyles, these are temporary solutions and require re-styling throughout the day. Hair transplant surgery is an ideal alternative for using wigs. It gives you natural-looking, thicker, fuller hair. For more information about our female hair loss treatment in Toronto, call us now.

Frequently Asked Questions 

Have a look at some of the commonly asked questions about hair transplants for women in Toronto.

Is Female Hair Transplant Surgery Painful?

No, the female hair transplant surgery is not a painful procedure. A local anesthetic is given to both the donor and the recipient areas before the procedure is carried out. Dr Paul Cotterill monitors your post-operation condition himself to attend to complaints. A painkiller is effective against any pains that might arise as an after-effect.

How Long Does the Female Hair Transplant Surgery Take?

The transplant itself takes between 4-8 hours. Before the procedure, you're asked to visit our office so that Dr Paul Cotterill can assess you carefully. The recovery period after the surgery is around a week. It might take 6-12 months for the benefits of the procedure to show completely.

How Long Do Hair Transplants Last?

Hair transplants are an effective, long-term solution for thinning and balding hair in women if the causes aren't medical. With proper care, the transplants can last for many years.

How Do I Take Care of My Hair Post Transplant Surgery?

You can return home the same day after your procedure. It is essential that you take a rest after the procedure and do not indulge in strenuous activities. You may wash your hair, but please use a gentle shampoo and be careful around the incision area. Our doctors will provide you with all the necessary post-care information after your surgery.
