What Is Hair Loss for Women?

For women, it is characterized as a significant loss of hair beyond the average 50-100 hair strands daily. Some hairs fall out while others grow, but when the balance is tipped towards the former, this is considered to be a health issue.

It is widely thought of as something that happens to men, but it also affects more than 50% of women. The condition usually affects women who just gave birth, are older than age 40, have had chemotherapy, are in menopause, or typically have hairstyles that pull on their hair.

Symptoms of Hair Loss for Women

The most common signs of hair loss for women include:

  • Noticeable increase in the amount of hair falling on the floor, collecting in a hairbrush, or gathering on pillows, in the sink, or in the shower
  • Expanding patches of missing hair, usually at the top of the head
  • More strands of hair breaking off
  • Noticeable signs of scalp skin showing through hair
  • Thinning ponytail
  • Hair feeling finer than usual

Causes of Female Hair Loss

There are a number of reasons why women experience hair loss, including genetic female pattern hair loss, aging, hormonal changes, iron deficiency, medications, thyroid disease, weight loss, and menopause. Female pattern balding is what brings many women to The Woodlands office in North Houston office for hair-replacement services.

Determining the cause of hair loss for women will help us determine whether your hair will continue to grow thin or fall out quickly or gradually. It will also help us decide if your hair will need treatment to grow again, whether it will regrow on its own, or if it will require immediate attention to stop permanent hair loss.

Female pattern balding is characterized by a progression of hair loss or thinning from the middle of the scalp outwards. Dr. Rivela can restore your hair density and volume using NeoGraft FUE method.

The staff and service at Rivela Plastic Surgery were top notch for my hair restoration treatment. I typically have high anxiety for medical procedures, but the care I received during my procedure made it go very smoothly and I have been very pleased with the result.

Diagnosing Hair Loss for Women

When you visit us at Rivela Plastic Surgery, we will ensure your experience is as comfortable and rewarding as possible. Dr. Rivela and his nursing staff will conduct a thorough evaluation to diagnose your cause of female hair loss as well as listen to your desired goals.

We can then recommend the best treatment solution using follicular unit grafting, which remains the most advanced technique of hair transplantation available. We offer automated FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) with NeoGraft. You can expect outstanding results if you have stable donor hair in the back, yet suffer from localized thinning in the front or top of your scalp.

 During the NeoGraft process, patients can use Pro-Nox analgesia to ensure a comfortable and pain-free experience. Pro-Nox is a 50/50 mix of nitrous oxide and oxygen gas. Because it takes effect quickly and the patient can safely control its release, they can easily address any pain, discomfort, or anxiety as it comes up. Recovery from its effects is also much quicker than recovery from the effects of general anesthesia.

Women and men both love the natural and aesthetically pleasing results that follicular unit grafting can deliver. Because each individual follicular unit is grafted to your thinning areas in their natural state, the hair can continue to grow in a normal, healthy pattern for a lifetime. This revolutionary technique makes your female hair transplant unnoticeable to others and gives you the freedom to choose your hairstyle.

Your Hair Loss for Women treatment will be performed by Rivela Plastic Surgery's team in The Woodlands.

How Much Does Hair Loss Treatment Cost?
