NeoGraft Hair Transplant to Treat Female Pattern Alopecia

The term “baldness” is typically associated with men, but in reality hair loss affects women more than men. Latest reports suggest that more than 30 million American women suffer from varying degrees of hair loss. Unlike male pattern alopecia which is more socially acceptable, female hair loss is less understood and can lead to extreme emotional distress for those women who suffer from it, according to hair loss experts.

The cause, nature and
pattern of hair loss in women differ drastically from that of men, so the treatment options available to both categories of patients are also different. Hair transplant surgeries like NeoGraft or FUE mostly apply to men. However, recent efforts by a leading hair transplant surgeon shows that NeoGraft surgeries can be performed successfully in female patients as well.

Alan J. Bauman, M.D, recently performed female hair transplant using the minimally-invasive NeoGraft/FUE technique. The entire surgery was live webcasted to give the world a closer view of the procedure. The hair transplant involved a hairline lowering procedure to correct a receded hairline, enhance density at the hairline, temple areas and restore a widow’s peak.

Efforts like these will help patients suffering from alopecia remove the fear associated with relatively new hair transplant techniques like NeoGraft. NeoGraft Scar Free Hair Transplantation is highly beneficial as it leaves no scars and does not involve painful procedure. It is gaining popularity over older methods like FUT or strip method.

 Below is the step-by-step procedure of
NeoGraft Scar Free Hair Transplantation:

  • Identify and plan the pattern of hair restoration for the patient
  • Prepare a small extraction area in the back of the scalp by cutting the hair short.
  • Extract each naturally occurring follicular unit (containing from 1-5 hairs) from that area using a very small instrument by using gentle air pressure to slide out each follicular hair unit.
  • Implant the hair quickly into the balding area, maintaining their viability and increasing the success of the grafting process.

“My goal with this live broadcast is to pierce the veil of secrecy surrounding women’s hair loss and show women that they’re not alone, and that effective treatment options are available to help. Not all women have to undergo transplants; in many cases early preventative treatments can be used - like Formula 82M Minoxidil, Propecia (for post-menopausal women), Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) with LaserCap and even scalp treatments with Latisse,” Dr. Bauman said.

To an extent female pattern hair loss is preventable, according to Dr. Bauman. There are several options available to them. Women need to learn about their options.

To help women identify hair loss risks and adopt preventive measures, Dr. Bauman offers a number of options like HairCheck, Genetic Hair Loss Testing and Cell Therapy. Through HairCheck patients can measure and track the amount of hair growing in a given area of scalp. Genetic Hair Loss Testing accurately determines a person’s risk for losing hair so they can begin preventative treatments early. Cell Therapy is an advanced way to help the wound heal itself after hair transplants and enhance hair growth.
