What You Should Know about Female Pattern Baldness (Androgenic Alopecia)?
Female pattern baldness is a type of hair loss that affects women. Androgenetic alopecia is the medical name for this disease.
The first signs of female pattern baldness may be a widening part or a feeling that the hair does not feel as thick as usual. Although the scalp may be visible, the hairline usually does not recede.
Genetics tends to be a major factor in the development of female pattern baldness, which indicates that it runs in families. Women may inherit from either parent the gene for pattern baldness.
Female pattern baldness is largely assumed to occur due to genetics. However, it can also develop because of an underlying condition that affects the development of the hormone androgen.
Androgen is a hormone that plays a part in the baldness of women. Pituitary gland or ovary tumors that secrete androgen can also result in hair loss.
Hair loss usually affects only some parts of the scalp. The procedure is performed by removing hair from an area of healthy hair growth and transplanting it to another spot where the hair is missing.
The area from where the hair transplanted usually remains unaffected by hair loss. The procedure is performed under local anesthesia, and takes several hours.
