Female hair transplant surgery is now an option.

Never one to be uncomfortable with challenging traditional industry norms, Dr. Ziering recognized that women were an underserved community of hair loss sufferers. Female Hair Loss often goes ignored even by mainstream beauty publications, making it difficult for women to get the education and answers they deserve. And yet, hair loss in women is very common with approximately 30% of women experiencing some amount of thinning hair throughout their lifetimes. The psychological impact on women can be more severe as a woman’s femininity is frequently linked to her hair.

Whereas men’s hair loss is more socially acceptable, even expected, current societal norms are not so forgiving with women experiencing thinning hair. In fact, a greater stigma is placed on women who are battling hair loss. Breaking the “cater to men” industry and societal model,  Dr. Ziering launched his private practice with a dedicated program of female hair loss solutions with Ziering For Her. Private female hair loss solutions seminars and live surgeries are hosted exclusively for women through the Ziering For Her umbrella.

Causes of female hair loss

Like their male counterparts, inherited genetics is the primary reason, but there are other medical conditions that cause diffuse hair loss in women such as:

  • Hormonal changes
  • Discontinuation of birth control pills
  • Obstetric and gynaecologic conditions such as post-partum and post-menopausal states or ovarian tumors
  • Anemia or iron deficiency
  • Thyroid disease and the medications used to treat it
  • Stress or trauma – surgical procedures, general anesthesia, and severe emotional problems
  • Poor nutrition caused by sudden changes in diet, crash dieting, bulimia, protein/calorie deficiency, essential fatty acid or zinc deficiency, malabsorbtion, hypervitaminosis A
  • Lupus – a connective tissue disease
  • Various medications
  • Traction Alopecia or hair loss caused from trauma, excessive tension on hair from wearing hairstyles or braiding that is very tight

The Ludwig System

Ludwig I-1:The central parting of a woman with no hair loss.

Ludwig I-2 I-3 I-4: The width of the parting gets progressively wider indicating thinner hair along the center of the scalp.

Ludwig II-1 II-2: Diffuse thinning of the hair over the top of the scalp.

Ludwig III: A woman with extensive diffuse hair on the top of the scalp, but some hair does survive.

Ludwig Advanced: A woman with extensive hair loss and little to no surviving hair in the alopecia affected area. Very few women ever reach this stage and if they do, it is usually because they have a condition that causes significant, abnormally excessive androgen hormone production.

Ludwig Frontal: A woman with a pattern of hair loss that is described as “frontal accentuated”. That means there is more hair loss at the front and center of the hair parting instead of just in the top middle of the scalp.
