Woman Brushing Hair

Hair restoration is as suitable for women as it is for men. If you are a woman who is beginning to experience hair loss (alopecia), you are not alone. Estimates show that one in five women endure some degree of hair loss.

Why Hair Loss Happens

Hair loss can occur at any point if genetics or illness are at fault. Although, it typically happens due to aging, hormonal changes post-menopause, genetics or disease. However, many other factors can also impact your hair follicles, resulting in thinning hair.

Unfortunately, it affects many women’s self-confidence because it impacts their appearance. While men usually experience hair loss in patches, women go through a subtle thinning all over the scalp. As a result, their once voluptuous head of hair starts to look flat.

Hair Loss Treatments

Since there are different types of alopecia, there are various treatments available. Those looking to restore or replace lost hair can turn to topical solutions like Rogaine, Platelet-rich plasma therapy, laser therapy and cosmetics like extensions and hair coloring. But most of these options only prevent further hair loss or hide the problem; they do not stimulate appreciable new growth; but hair transplant surgery does.

Female Hair Transplant Surgery

A female hair transplant is effective, and the results are natural-looking. The procedure uses the patient’s hair to create a thicker look and re-volumize the head.

At LM Medical NYC, we use the latest hair replacement and restoration methods: follicular unit extraction (FUE) and follicular unit transplantation (FUT).

Follicular unit extraction removes and transplants individual hair follicles without incisions, stitches or scarring. We relocate hair follicles from more dense regions to the desired areas using the advanced NeoGraft® hair transplant system.

Follicular unit transplantation removes and transfers strips of hair follicles surgically from one scalp area to another. This method is not preferable over follicular unit extraction, but could be a better option for some patients.

Who is Eligible for a Female Hair Transplant?

Women who still have hair density on the back and sides of their head but are losing it from the top are better suited for hair transplants because the donor hair follicles are extracted from those regions. The following hair loss types respond best to a female hair transplant:

  • Female pattern baldness
  • Mechanical or traction alopecia or alopecia marginalis
  • Hair loss due to plastic surgery (or to conceal facelift incision scars)
  • Hair loss due to trauma (accidents or injuries)
  • Naturally high hairlines (to shrink the forehead)
  • Transgender individuals transitioning from male to female (to frame their face with a more feminine hairline)

Stop Struggling with Hair Loss

Hair loss can be devastating, but female hair transplant surgery can give you back your beautiful hair. Stop struggling with hair loss by coming to see our team at LM Medical NYC. We can explore if NeoGraft follicular unit extraction or follicular unit transplantation is suitable for you, so you can restore your thinning hair and feel like yourself again.

I’ve been visiting LM medical for 4 years. The staff is always welcoming. The location is beautiful and modern. Dr. Morgan and Dr. Lesley are amazing physicians. They are very personable and genuine. They are open to questions and addressed all of my concerns. I have been more then pleased with my experience with LM Medical and I highly recommend this office.

Chris B.

Dr. Morgan Rabach and her staff provide top tier care and excellent service. Dr. Rabach is well-versed in the latest research. She made lots of time to discuss my dermatological history (what’s worked, what hasn’t worked, what hasn’t been tried) and all the available treatments to find the best path forward. She didn’t settle - pushing to make sure I got the best results possible. Would recommend without any reservations!

Toni D.

I have been seeing both Dr. Lesley & Dr. Morgan now for almost about three years now. Each time is better than the last. I trust them for natural results & they always deliver. What I value most is that they are never pushy! Always open, honest, and they are just overall good people.

Xavier M.

Dr Morgan and her staff are very warm and efficient professionals. She provided me with straightforward answers on three different concerns and more importantly, found the adequate treatment for me right away. A well staffed and organized team! Highly recommended.

Emily B.

The staff are incredibly friendly and so helpful. The wait times are very short, the space is clean and modern, and they're very quick to respond to questions over the phone or email. I needed a detailed receipt for my insurance and they gave me two different versions until my insurance was satisfied. The doctors are friendly, laid back, and really listen which is awesome. Would highly recommend!!

Stacy A.

Fun, safe and the results were perfect. Can’t wait for my next procedure!
