When we hear about hair transplants, we tend to think about men. But a growing number of women are now turning to a surgical solution for hair loss.
Doctors say some people lose their hair due to an obsessive compulsive disorder called Trichotillomania.
Doctors say patients with this disorder actually pull the hair out of the follicle and basically cause a trauma type reaction. The theory is that after multiple times of this happening, the follicle basically says it's burned out and stops producing hair.
Doctors have tried moving hair from the back of the head to fill in the thinned areas in the front and top. For more information and to find a surgeon in your area, log onto www.hairtransplantmedical.com
