Hair loss in women is more common than many think, and it affects 30 million American women. That means that women make up nearly half of hair loss sufferers. At New Image Plastic Surgery, we understand that hair loss can be a difficult thing to deal with, which is why we offer NeoGraft Hair Restoration.
One of the leading causes of hair loss is a hereditary condition called androgenetic alopecia. Many women experience this type of hair thinning with age, but it can occur at any time. Other causes of female hair loss may include hormone imbalances, stress, or other medical issues.
The average individual, male or female, loses 50-100 hairs per day. If you believe that you are losing more hair than average, be sure to take note of the amount of hair in your brush after combing your hair and in the drain after showering. Women who are experiencing excessive hair loss should seek medical attention first, for guidance and a possible diagnosis.
NeoGraft uses an automated hair transplant system to harvest hair follicles one at a time using a Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) method. These hair follicles are removed from the scalp and placed into areas where hair loss has occurred. This procedure is effective, virtually scarless, virtually painless, and very safe.
Following the NeoGraft procedure, patients can resume normal activity within the next few days. Results will be seen after the next several months as the hair grows, becoming fuller and thicker.
