What are the hair transplant options for men with a bald head?
It is very common for men to lose their hair. By the age of 35, about 2/3 of men will experience some hair loss, and by 50 years, around 80% of men suffer from hair loss and thinning.
We at the “Best Hair Transplant Clinic” understand how important your hair is to you and the concerns you have when it begins to fall out. The focus of our various services – from medical treatment to hair transplant surgery – is on helping you achieve the desired look you want.
The effects of hair loss vary from person to person. It can be caused by a variety of medical and lifestyle factors. In men, the most common causes are heredity, hormonal changes (testosterone and its effect on hair), medical conditions and ageing.
Male Hair Loss Treatments
At Best Hair Transplant Centre, a wide range of treatment options are available, from medication that can regrow your hair to transplanting hair follicles.
Medications for hair loss
There are over-the-counter medications that can help treat hair loss. Typically, they are available in the form of foams and ointments. Minoxidil (Rogaine) and finasteride (Propecia) are the most commonly preferred medications for hair loss.
It was originally developed for treating high blood pressure. However, researchers discovered that it resulted in unwanted, excessive hair growth. As a result, many experts considered using it to treat male baldness.
It is not entirely known how minoxidil works. However, hair grows thicker and stronger after taking the drug, as it widens hair follicles.
Additionally, minoxidil extends a hair’s growth cycle, resulting in longer hair with more hair strands. As long as minoxidil is used properly, it is safe and effective. To know how to use minoxidil, call – 040 49540202 / 8331020202, our hair loss treatment experts in Hyderabad at Best Hair Transplant Clinic.
Finasteride effectively treats male pattern baldness that develops in the crown area and middle of the scalp. The use of this drug is accompanied by several warnings such as; it should be tried on adult men only and should not be used by pregnant women or breastfeeding mothers. Importantly, it should be kept away from children.
Originally, finasteride was developed for use in the treatment of prostate cancer. However, it tends to reduce the levels of DHT hormone in the scalp. A high level of DHT may thin hair follicles, so reducing the level of DHT may help slow down hair loss and promote hair regrowth.
It does not affect hair growth in other body parts, unlike minoxidil.
Hair Growth Therapies
Often, hair growth therapies involve the use of a combination of drugs, creams, and shampoos. The popular hair growth therapies include:
- Stem cell therapy
- Intensive Hair Root Therapy for Hair Regrowth
- Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) Treatment for Hair Loss
- Hair Nutri Infusion Therapy
When you meet with hair specialists who specialize in hair growth treatments for men, they clearly explain the most suitable procedure for your type of hair loss. Our experts at BHT Clinic help work out the best action plan with tailor-made treatments based on your needs.
Surgery for hair loss
The only available surgical option to treat your hair loss is “hair transplant surgery.” The basic principle of hair transplant surgery is the same for any individual, both male and female.
Hairs located on the side and back of the head are extracted and re-implanted into desired recipient areas because they are less prone to the balding process and remain for life.
There are two popular hair transplantation procedures as follows:
Follicular Unit Transplantation:
FUT means Follicular Unit Hair Transplantation, and it is an invasive procedure. Follicular units are naturally grown groups of hairs on the scalp, and usually, a follicle contains 1, 2, 3 or 4 hairs.
The procedure involves cutting a strip of tissue from the scalp and sent to a lab to spread them into thousands of individual follicular units before transplanting it.
The strip is extracted strategically from the back of the head, which is resistant to balding, also called the donor area. Then the individual follicular units are placed in the bald area, which is called the recipient site.
Probably, one can assume, FUT is a complex procedure, but it has the potential for some desired results.
Follicular Unit Extraction:
The other hair transplant method is FUE, which is a bit different from FUT. Here in this procedure, individual Follicular Unit grafts are extracted one by one from other body parts, usually from the back of the head called the donor area.
After removing the grafts from the donor area, they are transplanted into the recipient area or balding site.
Laser combs are a more recent innovation in treating hair loss. These devices are said to stimulate hair growth with the help of concentrated light. However, this treatment has mixed outcomes, and experts say that it might work best if combined with other hair loss treatments.
Wigs and hairpieces
Hair loss can be permanent or long-term in some men. In comparison, some other men might want a non-medical method to manage their hair loss. For all of them, wigs and hairpieces are the perfect solutions to cover their hair loss. Over the past several years, wigs and hairpieces have progressed tremendously.
