Androgenic alopecia or male pattern is most commonly treated for a hair transplant surgery. However, hair loss in men and women can be syndromes of anything other than androgenic alopecia as well. For these non-androgenic syndromes a hair restoration surgery may or may not be applicable.
Other than Androgenic Alopecia, there are other forms of Baldness as well:
Trichotillomania – is a non-pattern baldness that creates patchy hair loss from uneven areas of the scalp. Trichotilomania is often seen in psychological patients who have the habit of pulling and tearing their own hair, and continued mistreatment can lead to permanent hair loss. Trichotilomania or the patchy hair loss can happen from vigorous pulling and styling, micro braiding and cornrow hair styles much common with people with afro-textured hair. If hair restoration is sought after for trichotilomania, it is usually a small area of coverage with plenty of donor hair. It will be a waste of the hair transplant cost if the patient cannot give the styling and making cornrows with the hair transplants too. Treatment can only be considered after proper evaluation of individual patients.
Scarring alopecia – Another syndrome that can occur from cornrows and micro braiding of hair is scarring alopecia. It occurs mostly in women with hair loss due to any scarring on the scalp.
Triangular alopecia – Hair loss temporal areas that sometimes begins in childhood. Hair loss may be complete, or a few fine, thin-diameter hairs may remain. The cause of triangular alopecia is not known, but the condition can be treated medically or surgically.
Alopecia Areata – or spot baldness results sometimes from poor imuune systems a patcy hair loss from poor immune system can lead to thinning of hair and baldness with sections of hair looking like islands in one’s head. Diagnosis is based on Medical History.
Loose-anagen syndrome – primarily occurs in blond girl child as well as boys between ages 2-6 with an abnormal syndrome with lose anagen or growth period hair coming off on slight pulling, combing or stroking causing hair miniaturization and even bald patches. The syndrome is under diagnosed and is found to have weak hair follicles that resolve on its own completely, largely or partly as the child grows older. Hair restoration surgery might not be applicable for it; however for older patients medication to boost the hair follicles might prove helpful.
