Androgenetic Alopecia (Genetic Hair Loss) is caused by a combination of genetics and hormones called androgens. It affects both sexes but is usually noticed in men earlier then women. Statistically by the age of 50, 50 percent of men and 40 percent of women will have noticed some hair loss.
Hair transplantation is a process through which the hair follicles or ‘grafts’ (nature’s building blocks for hairs) are removed from the back and sides of the head by either FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation) or FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction). These donor grafts are then moved to areas that are thinning or bald.
The ultimate goal of a hair transplant is to provide patients with a completely natural looking way to restore their hair that will last a lifetime.
We remove the grafts from genetically encoded areas of the scalp that is resistant to hair loss. This process provides the only permanent and guaranteed method for replacing hair. Hair transplants are equally successful for both men and women suffering from genetic or patterned hair loss.
Most people with Androgenetic Alopecia and some people with other conditions that cause hair loss can benefit from hair transplantation. Some other conditions do not lend themselves to hair transplantation. The only way to be certain is to meet with one of our doctors for an evaluation of your hair loss and detailed discussion of your options.
