About Hair Loss
At our La Jolla clinic, hair restoration surgery is often an excellent option for balding men, women aren’t always good candidates for the procedure. That’s because the cause of hair loss is usually different than it is for men. The most common cause of hair loss in men is genetic. Only a small percentage of women experience hair loss because of genetic causes. Some of the more common reasons our female patients lose their hair include:
- Thyroid conditions
- Extreme weight loss
Triple board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Chaffoo’s expertise in NeoGraft® hair transplant surgery may be an excellent way to restore a thick head of hair if Dr. Stuart rules out a treatable cause of your hair loss. Hair transplant surgery can improve a variety of concerns, including:
- Receding hairline
- Hair loss on top of the head
- Thinning eyebrows
- Scars along the hairline from facial plastic surgery
Dr. Chaffoo is uniquely qualified to perform the most complex methods for the treatment of the most difficult scalp and hair loss conditions. Learn more about what to expect from your hair restoration experience.
Hair loss may indicate an underlying medical condition that requires treatment. At La Jolla Plastic Surgery & Dermatology™, board-certified dermatologist Dr. Susan M. Stuart will review your medical history, complete a thorough health assessment, and provide a comprehensive medical treatment plan, if necessary.
“As a woman with thinning hair I searched for years for a solution. I tried everything and had every test done to see what the problem was. There were no clear answers for me. I decided on NeoGraft because it was a minimally invasive procedure. Best decision I ever made.”
