Most people think of hair loss as an issue affecting aging men. But there are two misconceptions here: first, hair loss often starts at a younger age than most men think, and second, even though it’s more frequent in men, hair loss is actually a common issue for women, too. In fact, it’s such an underserved area that at Dermatology Associates of Atlanta (DAA), we even opened the first hair restoration center for women in Georgia: The Griffin Center for Women’s Hair Loss. While many women can actually enjoy success with non-surgical treatment options like red light therapy, natural growth factors, and prescription topical or oral medications for hair restoration, the question arises: can women also have hair transplant surgery?
We won’t keep you in suspense—the answer is yes, women can be (and often are) excellent candidates for hair transplant surgery. In the video below, one of our skilled and experienced hair loss experts and transplant surgeons, Dr. Ashley Curtis, goes into more detail about women’s hair restoration surgery and how it can differ from surgery for men.
Whether you’re a man or a woman, if you have hair loss and want to do something about it, your first step is to schedule a consultation with The Griffin Center of Hair Restoration and Research or The Griffin Center for Women’s Hair Loss. We’ll be able to evaluate your condition, determine the underlying cause of your hair loss, and explain your treatment options.
