Women Before After FUT Hair Transplant


Hair loss in women is much more common than people think. About 30 million women in the U.S. have thinning hair.

Fortunately, neither men nor women have to live with hair loss. There are solutions that can restore your hair and your confidence.

Dr. Robert J. Dorin & Dr. Robert True (Emeritus) serve Greater NYC & Boston by providing treatment(s)* tailored to your condition and needs.

Common Causes of Hair Loss in Women

There are many causes of hair loss that are unique to women. Women might lose their hair about three months after giving birth and after discontinuing birth control pills, but this typically reverses after about six months. Another cause of female hair loss is excessive estrogen. Other causes of hair loss in women include:

  • Anemia
  • Anorexia
  • Bulimia
  • Burning scalp syndrome
  • Chronic telogen effluvium
  • Chemotherapy
  • Diabetes 
  • Heredity
  • Hormonal imbalances

DHT and Hair Loss


Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) is a hormone byproduct of testosterone present in both men and women. In cases of female hair loss, DHT causes a slow thinning of the hair on top of the head over many years (however, the hormonal mechanisms for female pattern baldness involve more than DHT and are still under investigation). Loss of estrogen after menopause adds to this effect.

Since men have considerably more DHT than women, our doctor (serving Greater NYC, NY and Boston, MA) presumes this to be the reason for the more rapid progression of alopecia noted in our male patients.

A Closer Look at Pregnancy-Related Hair Loss

During and after pregnancy, your body will undergo substantial changes. One of these changes often includes hair loss that may result in different degrees of shedding. While shedding is often alarming, it is only temporary for most women. Here are answers to frequently asked questions about hair loss and pregnancy:

What causes postpartum alopecia?

Estrogen plays an integral role in hair growth, so many women experience an extra thick head of hair during pregnancy followed by hair loss several months after giving birth. 

What can I expect?

About three to four months after giving birth, many women experience hair loss. This can occur all over the head or in concentrated clumps around the center. While the condition may resemble androgenetic alopecia, or pattern balding, the effects are only temporary for many women. Within six to 12 months, average hair growth is usually restored. 

How can I manage it?

We can provide patients with various resources for dealing with hair loss after pregnancy. There are several options for managing postpartum alopecia, including: 

  • Changes in behavioral habits 
  • Concealing thinning
  • Hair restoration procedures 
  • Medication, such as minoxidil, to stimulate hair growth

Explore Your Treatment Options

Our dedicated doctor serving Greater NYC, NY and Boston, MA has the resources and advanced treatment options you need to help you overcome postpartum hair loss. 

In the case of permanent postpartum hair loss, we have diverse treatment options specifically tailored for women's needs. Dr. Robert J. Dorin can recommend a prescription, procedure, or combination of treatments that will help to restore your hair to a thick, healthy-looking state.

PCOS-Related Hair Loss

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is a condition that affects about 10% of women of reproductive age. PCOS is characterized by the development of many small cysts on the ovaries. While these growths are not directly harmful to a patient's health, they disrupt hormonal balance, causing many different complications.

PCOS And Hormone Production

PCOS is an endocrine disorder that is typically diagnosed by ultrasound. The cause is unknown. The ovaries usually produce only a small amount of androgen, which triggers the production of other hormones. PCOS patients produce excessive androgen, which may cause hair loss and other symptoms, including:

  • Acne
  • Depression
  • Fertility problems
  • Irregular periods
  • Weight gain

Hair Loss In PCOS Patients

Hair loss related to the effects of androgen in PCOS patients is called androgenic alopecia. Typically, patients will first notice a thinning of the hair at the crown of the scalp or an excess of hairs lost after washing or combing. 

If you are suffering with PCOS and hair loss, we can determine a solution to restore your hairline and help you feel confident and attractive.

Is Menopause Causing Your Hair Loss?

Some women will notice slower hair growth and increased shedding in the years leading up to menopause. Although most will experience more dramatic thinning afterward, it is not uncommon for hair loss and thinning to occur beforehand as well. During both perimenopause and menopause, estrogen levels will dramatically decrease while the effects of androgens increase. This combination can result in failing hair follicles, which in turn leads to female pattern hair loss (FPHL).

Discover A Treatment That's Right For You Request a Consultation

Although your primary physician may recommend medications to improve the effects of menopause, these may not be sufficient to prevent hair loss. Fortunately, we can deliver safe and effective hair regrowth with hair restoration technology and techniques. Our doctor combines surgicalnonsurgical, and medicinal treatments (such as minoxidil) to help women achieve hair growth. We can provide personally tailored treatments to meet your unique needs.

A Closer Look at Traction Alopecia

Traumatic alopecia, or traction alopecia, is categorized as a non-scarring condition. This form of alopecia is characterized by hair loss without symptoms found on the skin, such as inflammation or fibrosis. Here are answers to frequently asked questions:

What causes traction alopecia? 

Traumatic alopecia is unique compared to other hair loss conditions since it's caused directly by the patient. The condition often develops due to prolonged tension on the hair, which can lead to inflamed follicles or hair that has completely detached from the root. This tension is commonly caused by: 

  • Chemical straightening treatment.
  • Hairpieces and weaves that rely on the hair for security.
  • Headgear such as helmets.
  • Tight hairstyles such as braiding, rollers, or ponytails.

What are the symptoms? 

As damage escalates, hair will begin to fall out or become sparse. Typically, this will happen more quickly around the hairline or behind the ears. However, depending on your habits, it can also occur at the crown of the scalp. Common warning signs that you may be causing excessive tension and damage to your hair follicles include: 

  • A scalp that is sensitive to the touch when you take your hair down.
  • Itchy scalp when wearing braids or a weave.
  • The need for painkillers for a headache caused by a tight hairstyle.

How do I prevent further damage?

You can prevent traumatic alopecia by actively avoiding specific hairstyling techniques or lifestyle habits. If you are committed to preventing the effects of traumatic alopecia, you can stop hair loss and, in some cases, restore your hair naturally without the use of medication like minoxidil. 

Our hair loss clinics serving Greater NYC and Boston, MA is dedicated to helping our patients achieve a natural-looking, full head of hair. We can help you develop a plan to properly manage your condition.
