Female Hair Restoration

At the Hair Surgery Center at La Jolla Skin, we understand that hair loss isn't limited to men. We have extensive experience with female hair loss, and can provide effective solutions for the women who visit us in La Jolla for hair restoration from throughout San Diego County. Triple board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Richard Chaffoo and board-certified dermatologist Dr. Susan Stuart take a comprehensive, collaborative approach to treating female hair loss.

Treating hair loss in women requires specialized training and experience. For the right solution to your hair loss, request a consultation at the Hair Surgery Center at La Jolla Skin or call our office at (858) 623-6333.

About Hair Loss in Women

While the most common cause for hair loss in men is genetic, this is typically not the case for women. Often there are other reasons our female patients lose their hair, including:

  • Thyroid conditions
  • Medication
  • Pregnancy
  • Menopause
  • Stress
  • Extreme weight loss

If a medical condition is suspected, board-certified dermatologist Dr. Susan Stuart will review your medical history, complete a thorough health assessment, and provide a comprehensive medical treatment plan, if necessary. Triple board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Chaffoo provides consultations for women who are candidates for hair restoration surgery.

"As a woman with thinning hair I searched for years for a solution. ... I decided on NeoGraft because it was a minimally invasive procedure. Best decision I ever made." — Julia M.

Improvements for Women

Dr. Chaffoo has helped many women feel more attractive and confident by performing NeoGraft® hair transplant surgery to 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

If Dr. Stuart rules out a treatable cause for your hair loss, hair transplant surgery may be an excellent way to help you feel more attractive and confident.
