Hair Transplant for Men
In 95% of patients with hair loss, their hair loss is inherited genetically. These hair loss genes make hair follicles sensitive to the hormone dihydrotestosterone or DHT
Many women think hair transplantation is just for men. It is not! In society a lot of emphasis is placed on a woman’s appearance. It is not our place to discuss the pros and cons of this, but it is an undeniable fact.
For Transgender or transsexual patients who have undergone gender reassignment or are in the process of gender reassignment, your appearance will benefit greatly from a hair transplant.
Eyebrows provide definition and expression for your face. Whether absent as a result of injury, plucking, or genetics, the effects of missing brows can be devastating no matter what your gender.
Facial hair growth is most commonly viewed as a sign of masculinity and male maturity. However some men are genetically lacking facial hair and are not able to grow a beard, sideburns, or mustache or have only patchy facial hair growth. In other cases injury may have caused scaring in the facial hair area.
Alopecia is the loss of hair. Traction alopecia is the loss of hair caused by traction. Constant pulling or tension on hair follicles with hair pulled into a pony tail or tight braids can cause traction alopecia. Hair follicles become damaged over time with the constant tension.
There are two different approaches to repairing a scalp scar. For some patients, hair follicles can be transplanted directly into a scalp scar, filling in the area. However, for most patients the best solution is excision to remove rigid scar tissue.
A scar in the lip can be caused by injury or repair of a congenital lip deformity such as a cleft lip or cleft lip repair. Many men with a scar in the lip will try to grow facial hair or a mustache to help cover over the scar. This is often fraught with problems because hair does not grow in the scar leaving a visible gap in the hair and the scar exposed.
Following a brow lift (forehead lift), face lift, or other cosmetic facial surgery, many men and women need or desire hair restoration to lower their hair line back to its original position, correct hair loss that may have occurred at the incision site, or to help conceal a scar that was left as a result of the surgery.
