HAIR TRANSPLANT FOR WOMEN
Beautiful locks are desired by every woman. However, hair fall problems are troubling many women across the globe. Hair fall can occur due to a variety of causes and is broadly classified into two types:
- Noncicatricial/ nonscarring type of alopecia- the more common type
- Cicatricial/ scarring type of alopecia – the less common type
I Nonscarring alopecia- It includes the following conditions
- Telogen effluvium- this is the most common type of hair fall seen in young women. It usually follows periods of unhealthy dieting, sickness, thyroid disorders, seborrheic dermatitis, and certain medications. In this type of hair loss, there is a loss of hair from all over the scalp with a decrease in hair density especially over the temporal (lateral scalp).
- Anagen effluvium– This type of hair loss usually follows cancer chemotherapy and is characterized by loss of hair from all over scalp and eyebrows resulting in baldness.
- Female pattern hair loss– This type of hair fall is usually seen in the menopausal age group and is characterized by widening of the central partition or loss of hair only from the crown area with an intact anterior hairline. It is also seen in younger women with PCOD and other hormonal problems.
FEMALE PATTERNED HAIR LOSS
- SAHA Syndrome– This type of hair fall is accompanied by oily skin, acne, and hirsuitism (increased hair growth on face and other sites) and irregular periods. It is usually seen in women with hyperandrogenemic states like PCOD, adrenal disorders and other hormonal problems.
- Alopecia areata- It is characterized by presence of bald patches in an otherwise normal scalp. Sometimes in extensive cases it can involve the whole scalp or even the whole body.
- Hair shaft disorders- In this type of hair fall, the hair don’t fall from the roots but shed due to breakage of the hair shaft which is usually rendered weak due to chemical procedures on the scalp, or excessive use of heat appliances on the hair.
II Cicatricial alopecia
In this type of alopecia there is scarring of scalp, that is, the roots of the hair get destroyed by the disease process, resulting in bald patches with scarred scalp. Diseases most commonly causing cicatricial alopecia include Lichen plano pilaris, discoid lupus erythematosus , trauma/ accident and peudopelade of brocq.
