Hi everyone. I am a 34 year old woman and have been experiencing severe hair loss from the age of 17. I was thinking of getting a hair transplant. Will I get a head full of hair after undergoing this treatment? Also how long does it take for a transplant to grow? Can anyone recommend a good hair transplant centre in Dallas.

Thank You...

If you have female pattern baldness, which is actually a diffuse type of hair loss, you probably art not a good candidate for hair transplant surgery. If you have a stable pattern, more like a man then it can work well. You won’t see the end result of a transplant for at least a year. The best place to start looking for a hair transplant surgeon is www.iahrs.org

When it comes to diagnosing hair loss in women, a dermatologist or hair loss specialist is the person for the job. Dermoscopy is the best technique for evaluating hair loss. Scalp dermoscopy is key for differentiating between the different types of hair loss. Women who suffer from hair loss often have Female Pattern Hair Loss (FPHL), which is diffuse hair loss. As mentioned above, women with diffuse hair loss patterns are often not good candidates for hair transplant because they do not have a sufficient donor supply. If you have not tried any treatments for your hair loss yet, you should try Rogaine and maybe even low level laser therapy (LLLT). Recent studies have shown LLLT to be an effective treatment, and it is the only FDA approved medical device for hair loss on the market. The capillus cap is great because of its versatility. Other treatments that may work for you include ketoconazole 2% shampoo or topical steroid creams. Have you been tested for any underlying medical conditions, such as thyroid disorders or Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)? Women with PCOS usually benefit from taking Spironolactone. Spironolactone is a potassium sparing androgen antagonist. Due to its anti-androgen properties, it can aid in treating hair loss for women who are sensitive to androgens. Some doctors even prescribe Finasteride to women with FPHL. Finasteride is not FDA approved for the use in women and not every women will be a candidate. Every woman is different, therefore, the treatment for one woman with FPHL may not work for another. Additionally, many FPHL sufferers benefit from a multi-pharmacological approach. Having an initial scalp analysis will be key to your treatment strategy.

Good question, it is always best to gather maximum information on this topic before jumping on to decision. Hair transplant surgery can be a life changing cosmetic procedure, if done on the right hair and scalp characteristics. However, not every hair loss sufferer gets the expected results. The key to determining good candidates for hair restoration surgery is estimating what the patient's hair loss pattern might be. In general, women with stable donor hair who exhibit more of a male pattern, than a female diffuse un-patterned hair loss are considered better candidate for hair transplantation. Make sure you get the chance to understand the positive and negative (especially the negative) things you have going for you or against you when it comes to transplants.
BTW, have you thought or tried any drug treatment like minox before?

Hair transplant is the only permanent method of hair restoration in which one's own hair from the back and sides of the head are extracted and implanted on front in the bald area. Nowadays, hair transplant is being done by Follicular unit technique which involves two ways of hair extraction - STRIP method and FOLLICULAR UNIT EXTRACTION (FUE).

In the STRIP method,a strip of skin from the back of head (donor area) is removed with the help of scalpel..The gap at the back of head is then sutured together.The strip is then divided into grafts containing one, two or three follicles.

FUE - Follicular Unit Extraction: A stitchless method of hair restoration in which hair root (follicles) are extracted from the back of head under local anaesthesia with the help of special micropunches and implanted in the bald area. In this procedure, no scalpel is required which is used for cutting skin in the 'strip' surgery. The entire procedure is done by the dermatosurgeons and not by technicians.
The number of sessions will depend on the:
1. Area of scalp treated
2. The number and size of grafts used and
3. The density which the patient desires
4. The individual characteristics of the patient e.g. coarse hair will provide a denser look than fine hair.

Hair transplantation is a method which cures hair loss and baldness problems. Using hair strengthening products like Keratene, at least 2 to 3 weeks before transplant and from one week after hair transplant can hasten the re-growth of the transplanted hair; while at the same time help reduce further hair loss. It seems that you are suffering from pattern hair loss/baldness. You can try medical measures to slow down your hair loss. Natural products like Keratene can be very helpful. Once your hair fall has slowed down, you can opt for a hair transplant. The duration of procedure depends upon the number of grafts, though it is usually possible as a single day procedure.
Once the transplanted hair begins to grow, it will continue to do so for a lifetime. The transplanted hair generally sheds within the first 2-6 weeks after the procedure as the roots enter a resting phase. Between 3-8 months, the transplanted roots start sprouting hair. It usually takes 10-12 months to see the full improvement in terms of density, as the hair continues to mature and thicken.

Have you ever tried home remedies to prevent hair loss? If no then try home remedies and if it doesn't work then go for hair transplantation. Hair transplantation is a best method to cure hair loss or baldness issue. But before you plan to undergo hair transplant you must know about hair transplant technique, method, surgeon and cost etc. Because if it is not done by an experienced surgeon then you may have some side effects.

There are also more ways to grow hair; I don’t think you’ve tried them yet. There are still people suffering from baldness who refuse to explore the options available and instead choose to spend time and money on treatments that don’t work.

If you’ve decided to have surgery, then find a better place for hair loss treatment.
