FEMALE PATTERN HAIRLOSS OR LUDWIG CLASSIFICATION

FEMALE PATTERN HAIRLOSS OR LUDWIG CLASSIFICATION

Hair loss in ladies occurs due to various reasons. Some common reasons include hormonal disturbances, prolonged/severe illness, crash dieting, chemotherapy, auto immune disorders etc. Hair transplants are not recommended if hair loss is due to the above reasons.

However, hair loss due to androgenic alopecia or any injury, burn or surgery scar can be treated using modern, ultra refined follicular unit hair transplants.

In addition, ladies having a broad forehead by birth (congenitally high hairline) can also lower their hairline.

Females usually have a different type of hair loss than men.

Female pattern baldness is different. In most cases, they do not have large areas of stable balding-resistant hair follicles. The sides and the back of their scalp hairs also tends to thin just as the front and top of the head do. Hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT) affects most of the areas of their scalp.

Women with traction alopecia (hairloss induced by prolonged and excessive stretch on the hair follicles e.g., when using tight rollers or wearing hair in tight braids). These women usually have an isolated area of their hair that is affected. Thus, they can have hair transplant procedures. Some women have cosmetic surgery (brow lift, facelift etc.) and suffer hair loss around the suture sites. In these cases, hair transplant surgery can help. Similarly women who have suffered trauma from accidents or burns can benefit from hair transplant.
Ludwig Classification (for female pattern hairloss)

 

 

For those women who do not have diffuse alopecia, the diagnosis is simplified and much more direct. These women are classified by the Ludwig classification system. There are three categories; Ludwig I, Ludwig II, and Ludwig III.
Those with a Ludwig I pattern are not candidates for any surgical treatment. They are best treated with topical treatments like tricopigmentation/SMP.
Similarly, females approaching post menopausal phase usually suffer from hair thinning in ideal areas and can be benefited with tricopigmentation. Patients with more advanced hair loss, those who are classified as Ludwig II or Ludwig III categories, are possible candidates for hair transplantation. They are acceptable candidates if they have an adequate amount of donor density. The donor area is the hair found in the back of the scalp.
