There are many causes for male hair loss. Hair loss caused by stress or illness will usually mean it’s not a permanent loss of hair. These types of hair loss are best treated by your family physician. Even medications can be the cause of temporary hair loss. Temporary hair loss can also be caused by diet, infections, skin disorders, iron deficiencies, and some surgeries. Usually, once the cause is remedied, then the hair will return to normal. Many women lose hair after the birth of a child. With time a woman’s hair will most likely return to pre-birth state.
The most common found reason for male hair loss is known as male pattern baldness. If a man has too much DHT, which is DiHydro Testosterone, this can cause a man to start losing his hair. There is an oral medication called Propecia that can be taken to start the new regrowth of hair. This may be one option to consider before trying hair restoration surgery. One thing to know is that Propecia will not make your hair grow forever but only as long as you take it. This can become quite an expense. Once you stop the medication, your hair will cease growing again.
Searching for the perfect hair loss solution can be confusing. You will want to take into consideration the reason for your hair loss before making any decisions. How much money are you willing to spend? Are you willing to live with a hair piece? Can you afford to continually renew a prescription for pills or ointments? The best solution is follicular unit hair transplantation. This is the best way to achieve regrowth that looks natural and is a permanent solution. Once this hair transplant surgery is complete, it will not need to be repeated. Hair will continue to grow for your lifetime. Isn’t that worth the expense?
Do not fall for false hair regrowth solutions. Ask your physician for advice. There are many products available today on the market, but do they really work? More than likely, they are only selling you hope. Set up an appointment with a hair restoration clinic for a consultation. Ask about all your options before deciding which is best for you. Look into recurring costs versus a one time fee for hair restoration surgery. Ask your hair restoration clinic if you are a good candidate for hair restoration surgery. Get as much information as necessary so you are able to make a well informed decision.
With today’s modern techniques hair restoration surgery can be an exceptional option to replace hair loss. Locating a surgeon that specializes in follicular unit transplantation will ensure that you leave your surgery with a natural looking hair line and hair that will grow in a natural pattern. Not long ago, hair plugs were implanted in the balding areas and continued to look like small plugs. Today this is no longer true and with very small implants of 1 to 2 hairs, hair will grow in and look as if it was there naturally.
When first receiving surgery for your hair transplant, your hair will become dormant due to the shock of being moved. It can take up to several months before growth begins. Be aware that this will take place and look into all the post op findings before making any decision. You would not want any surprises once your surgery is complete. Are you a good candidate for removal of hair from a donor area? Some people tend to scar more. Ask your surgeon about this before the procedure begins. Researching all there is to know about hair transplants will be very helpful in making the best decision possible for you.
