Hair transplant surgery is available for men to both restore the thickness of their hair and fill in hair loss with a natural-appearing and permanent outcome with no visible scarring.
Many men find that over the natural course of time they lose the density of the hair on their scalp or develop balding areas or may suffer from Male Pattern Baldness (MPH).
Loss of hair normally starts after middle age; however, inherited traits, prescription medications or other conditions can cause the hair loss to start at an earlier age.
The medical terminology for MPB is hereditary androgenetic alopecia. This inherited trait starts to develop following puberty. The genes for this trait can come from either side of the family.
Hair Transplant Before And After Patient’s Photos
Male Pattern Baldness happens when a male is genetically susceptible to the presence of the hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT). The shaft diameter and length of the hair at the hairline, crown and/or the top of the head will start to diminish. This process is called hair miniaturization and will eventually lead to the loss of hair in the area.
A hair transplant procedure is done by harvesting hair follicles from the back of the head. Hair taken from this section of the head is considered to be permanent hair follicle grafts. These hairs are not susceptible to the DHT genetic trait and thus not to miniaturization and hair loss.
Hair Transplant Surgery for restoration of hair loss is a comfortable procedure leaving a man with an outstanding end result.
