5 Things Women Should Know About Menopause and Hair Loss | Alan J. Bauman MD

Women expect hot flashes and mood swings to occur during "the change," but many women are unaware and unprepared for the fact that they may also find themselves facing hair loss and thinning during this time as well. After menopause, about 40 percent of women experience hair thinning, which is almost the same rate as men. But if this is true, why don't we see bald women on the street? Unlike male pattern hair loss, hereditary hair loss in women is usually a lot subtler and it can be easy to miss the early warning signs. Women tend to experience thinning over a wide area of scalp, and for many, the first signs and symptoms may come in the form of a smaller ponytail, a wider part line or excessive shedding during brushing and showering.


When it comes to hormones and hair, the good news is that effective treatments are available. At Bauman Medical Group 50% of our patients are women. Routine follow-ups are mandatory to monitor progress with non-invasive treatments and transplants are performed when appropriate. --Dr Bauman

Mens Health Magazine 10/2013 - Dr. Alan Bauman discusses NeoGraft FUE Hair Transplant by Alan J Bauman MD

If hair loss is "Your Mane Concern," as Men's Health Magazine describes, there are several preventative and restorative options you should consider. In this month's issue, hair loss expert Dr. Alan J. Bauman was tapped for his opinion regarding the top strategies for battling baldness. He describes non-invasive treatments like Propecia/Finasteride, Minoxidil (Formula 82M), Laser Therapy with LaserCap or Nutreve Personal Laser, as well as the least invasive hair transplant available: Follicular Unit Extraction or FUE. NeoGraft FUE heals faster and more comfortably with less activity restriction. FUE also completely avoids the linear scar left behind by old-style linear hair transplant procedures.

NeoGraft FUE is a hair transplant which allows the individual harvesting of follicular-units without a scalpel or stitches, eliminating the traditional scar. Healing is faster, more comfortable and less restricted in terms of activity. Short haircuts are possible because there is no linear scar to hide. Artistry is mandatory at the hairline, frontal and crown areas where hair follicles are transplanted in order to achieve a natural result.  Dr. Alan J. Bauman was the first ABHRS-certified hair transplant surgeon to use NeoGraft FUE and has performed FUE procedures for over a decade.  For more information about FUE NeoGraft or non-invasive ways to prevent and reverse hair loss, visit to start your research or contact Dr. Alan Bauman.
