Is this Traction Alopecia?

I am a 21 year old female suffering from traction alopecia. Unfortunately, due to my work I have to wear my hair in tight ponytails. I believe this has caused me to lose hair around my temples. What are my options ?

I would like to know if it is present on the other side as well. Sometimes a condition called Triangular Alopecia can cause a pattern of hair loss like this, but not as large. As your history is consistent with traction as a cause, then a hair transplant is the perfect answer, regardless of the cause.

Get a virtual consultation with Dr. William Rassman and Dr. Jae Pak for hair loss options. You can learn more by scheduling an appointment.
