Hair loss is not a gender specific condition. Many women, especially after menopause, experience hair loss in various ways. Hair loss in women typically shows a different pattern than in men, as the common causes and mechanisms are different. However, hair restoration by transplantation surgery addresses these causes as well, thus providing similarly excellent success rates in female patients too.
Instead of the Norwood Scale, we use the Ludwig Scale to assess female hair loss. Female patients often prefer the DHI technique over FUE thanks to the fact that DHI technique doesn’t involve the shaving of hair from areas that are not operated on.
