- Hair loss may occur in up to 30% of females. When it occurs in females, it is usually more diffused rather than more localized.
- Hair restoration has been used successfully for 50 years, and new refinements in methods continue to help improve results.
- It is a minor surgical procedure that moves grafts of hair from the back and sides of the head to the bald areas of the front of the scalp.
