Hair thinning and hair loss can greatly affect a man’s confidence and it thought up to 50% of men will have experienced some level of hair loss (the primary cause being male patterned baldness, also known as androgenetic alopecia) before the age of 50. At Juvea Surgical, our expert hair restoration consultants are able to work with you to achieve a natural yet effective result in our Harley Street centre.
Male patterned baldness causes hair follicles to produce thinner, shorter hairs rather than healthy hairs. Over time, these hair follicles produce finer and shorter hairs or die out altogether which is when hair loss becomes apparent.
Male patterned baldness is related to the following factors:
Genetics: Being predisposed to hair loss can be passed on be either parent. Just because your father is bald it does not necessarily mean that you will be, but the chances are higher.
Hormones: Dihydrotestosterone (known as DHT) is the hormone connected to hair loss. It decreases the length of the hair’s growth cycle causing the hair shaft to become smaller with each cycle.
Age: In addition to genes and hormones, hair loss occurs when hair follicles are exposed to DHT over a period of time but the age at which this happens can vary.
To be a good candidate for an FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) hair transplant you would need some degree of hair growth at the back and sides of your scalp, as this is the ‘donor’ site for the area requiring hair. Improvements can be made even with a limited donor area- your expert Juvea Surgical hair loss consultant will be able to best advise you during a consultation and with use of a special magnifying tool your doctor can measure the degree of hair loss and pinpoint donor areas.
