Hair loss and thinning can be very frustrating for individuals of any age. At times, there are medical reasons an individual loses their hair. This can happen in men and women. The most common type of hair loss is male pattern baldness. Frequently men lose their hair in stages, in patterns that are familiar to the eye. Medical management of hair loss can make a difference, but there are few procedures that are as gratifying, with life changing results, as a hair transplant.
Surprisingly, due to genetic factors up to 50% of women will be affected by hair loss during their lifetime. The pattern of hair loss in women is different than it is in men, with generalized thinning being more common. Hair restoration can be a very rewarding procedure for many women with thinning or receding hair.
Essentially, hair is taken from a part of the scalp where hair is abundant and an incision is easily hidden. Using the newest microscopic techniques and follicular unit grafting, individual hair groupings are meticulously placed in the locations of hair loss where they can grow in a natural and normal manner. Frequently only one session is required but depending on the density and area of coverage that is needed, multiple sessions can be performed.
To achieve the best possible results, we are extremely particular about how every single hair is transplanted in terms of its location and direction of growth. This is what separates a good result from a spectacular one. Once the hair has taken, it is your own natural hair that will continue to grow and can be treated normally.
