Treatment for Diffuse Unpatterned Alopecia? | Dr. Rahal

Treatment for Diffuse Unpatterned Alopecia?

I have Diffuse Unpatterned Alopecia. Since I was 20, i started hair loss. Now i am 28 and its serious. I want to get hair transplant surgery, with you but when I was doing some research, i think I don’t have enough donor hair for treatment. My hair is very thin and balding. It does not have patterns. Its just thin over all. Only parts that are thick are the very front on each side (not side of the head but top front side) and maybe some at the back. But compared to others in your result photos, i have no donor hair. Is there any treatment for someone like me? Please help.

Dear Yong,

Thank you for your question…

Example of Diffuse Unpatterned Alopecia (DUPA). Rahal FUE™ — the least-invasive hair transplant available — is typically the recommend treatment.

Treatment for Diffuse Unpatterned Alopecia (DUPA), especially when considering hair restoration, can be difficult due to one reason… the law of supply vs. demand.

This means we have to look at the amount of area affected by male pattern hair loss and the amount of hair that we have to work with in order to give a cosmetically pleasing result.

This doesn’t necessarily mean that we must have a high density, large coverage Rahal Mega Session™ with 7000 grafts in one procedure. This means achieving moderate density and designing a hairline that frames the face. This alone can and does go a long way in achieving an improvement so you can look and feel younger.

We can assume that we can rule out a Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT) to address your needs because the linear scar would be more easily visible with even longer hair lengths. Typically FUT scarring can be hidden with moderately short hair cuts but this is assuming that an average level of density exists in the donor region.

Lower than average donor density, as in your case, leaves less room for hiding linear scars, thus Rahal FUE™ is indicated because of the lack of a linear scar altogether. However, the challenge may be that we are dealing with DUPA, which means that we cannot reliably count on the donor hair to last indefinitely as we generally would with donor hair from a typical non DUPA donor zone.

However, depending on the overall size of your current hair loss on top of your scalp and if you are agreeable to taking preventive medications such as Propecia and Rogaine then we may be able to find a suitable number of grafts to take from the area of your donor zone that you indicated as being “thicker”.

This is where the advantage of Rahal FUE™ really shines in that we’ll be able to fine tune the procedure by extracting grafts that appear to be stronger than in other areas of your donor zone.

I encourage you to schedule your 100% FREE private consultation today, so I can determine if you’re a candidate for Rahal hair restoration. I’ll also design your personalized “Hair Loss Treatment Plan™” that could be answer to your hair loss problem.

I look forward to helping discover a permanent hair loss solution.
