Hair Loss Causes and Types

In Women

Hair Loss in Women – DC & Virginia

In women, the process of baldness is similar to that in men. Progressive thinning of the vertex is suggestive, despite the persistence of a frontal margin. The onset is usually later with increased hair loss between 35 and 45 years of age. Progress is less rapid than in men and indicated more by a diffuse thinning of varying severity (the Ludwig Classification). Hormonal disorders should be evaluated by endocrine evaluation. In fact, it is imperative to consider possible bio-identical hormone treatment protocols in the perimenopausal woman who suffers from hair loss.

Reverse Hair Loss with Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT)

Dr. Giannotto reverses hair loss in women via removal of permanent hair follicles from the sides and back of the scalp, which are then transplanted into thinning and balding areas. This procedure — also referred to as the Follicular Unit Transplantation or ‘strip method’ (FUT)— can move up to 3,500 grafts in one visit.

During the procedure, Dr. Giannotto removes hair-bearing scalp and dissects active follicles — called follicular units — under magnification. He then moves the active follicles to thinning and balding areas, where they will continue to grow permanently. Remember, this is the patient’s own natural hair and will grow forever!

While recovery depends upon the patient, most recover in two to three days. Noticeable results can be seen in as little as six months following the procedure.
