The above link is to an interesting article which appeared April 17, 2006 (yesterday) in the Los Angeles Times. The article discusses the differences between male and female hair loss, but offers few viable solutions to the female hair loss problems that face nearly half of women past menopause and many young women. The article paints hair transplantation into a distorted positive view, suggesting it is a solution for many women. In my experience, women who make good hair transplant candidates are few and if the transplant option is played in most women who are not suitable candidates, not only is there often poor results, but the women that are inappropriately transplanted could be worse off than if they were to have left it alone or just put on drugs like minoxidil. I hope that women who read this article do not rush into a surgical solution that is not the answer to their dreams for if they do it may take their dreams and turn them into nightmares.
