Hair loss in women is quite different in women as compared to men. Although, the predominant cause of hair loss in women is also androgenic alopecia, the typical male pattern is usually not present. Along with this many other causes of diffuse hair loss like iron deficiency, thyroid problems or hormonal imbalance also form a major chunk of hair loss causes in women.
The women hair loss typically involves hair thinning in a large area with sparing of frontal fringe. This so called female pattern baldness has been divided into three stages, called Ludwig Stages.
women hair lossThis is the earliest stage of women hair loss, showing mild thinning of hair in central scalp which manifests as widened hair parting. The hair loss at this stage can be easily camouflaged by changes in hair style and responds well to medical therapy. Hair transplants are generally not required at this stage.
In this stage the hair thinning is more severe and more extensive involving larger area of the scalp. Hair loss is apparent under all lighting conditions and is difficult to camouflage. However, there are no areas of absolute baldness and frontal fringe is not involved. Hair transplant should be considered at this stage of women hair loss and gives very good results.
Hair thinning is even more with areas of absolute baldness and involvement of frontal fringe in final stage of women hair loss. There may be thinning in donor area as well. Hair transplant will give good results in such patients if donor area characteristics are good.
After hearing and reading many good reports about Dr.sharad on the internet I travelled to India from England. The doctor and all of his staff made the experience very easy and pleasant. I was very satisfied with my operation which was far superior to my previous operation in Europe.
Clinic, staff, ambience is really good. Procedure followed looks to be international standard. Doctors are reachable round the clock. Appreciate their participation in hair restoration forums.
I am very happy about the quality of service provided here. I suggest to others as well because here I have got real value for money I spent. I highly recommend this centre for anyone planning for hair transplant.
This clinic was established in 1980 in New Delhi and was the first clinic in India to introduce hair transplantation. Since then, our clinic has conducted successful hair transplant procedures on a regular basis here.
