hair transplant hope

Posted 03-25-2011 at 04:57 PM by Sara Wasserbauer, MD

Hair transplant CAN be done in women! They can be done in scar. They can be done in pattern hair loss (female or male androgenetic alopecia) and in alopecia areata and in traction alopecia and in all manner of other hair problems.

Over the past week I've had a number of patients come to me with stories of doctors that told them hair transplant cannot be done in their case. These are all well-meaning doctors. As a matter of fact I was one of them once! - but they are not well-informed.

Hair transplants are not a panacea -but they can provide good benefit and improvement at the very least in most cases... Things CAN get better and situations - even desperate ones CAN be improved, surprisingly.

...and isn't that the definition of hope?

    hi i am a girl from India. i am 31 yrs old. i am suffering from Alopecia Ophiasis type since in was 1 1/2 yrs of age ! i had taken steroid injections in the affected area and also taken medication for the same . after steroid injections i recovered my hair but once it was stopped all the grown hair fell off and till today it hasnt regrown !
    Ophiasis is a snake band like baldness which stretches from one ear to the other ! since its at the back of my head it doesnt show much but like any of you here i cant tie my hair or do anything with it ! luckily i do have my scalp hair except the back part of it because when i lift my hair up its bald from back so i cant tie my hair !
    also recently i started having bald patches around my scalp ! i fear my alopecia areata is progressing now and soon it will effect all my scalp hair !~

    Can you please suggest me if there is any kind of treatment for Alopecia Areata Ophiasis type condition !

    thank you

    Hair transplant results vary widely from person to person.

    HI, I am aware that Hair Transplants are available to women who suffer from all types of HL. My hair loss was diagnosed as female pattern baldness and was heightened by stress. Doctors have recommended hair transplant but how much sense does it make to do a transplant when your hair is continuously falling out? I am unsure how successful my results would be, I feel like I would have to have several different surgeries throughout my entire life span?
