FUE Hair Transplant
Follicular-Unit Extraction (FUE) allows the extraction and harvesting of individual follicles from donor area without incisions or linear scar.
Causes of Hair Loss in Men
Baldness in men occurs when the follicle shrinks over time, resulting in shorter and finer hair. This results in a very small follicle with no hair inside. Ordinarily, hair should grow back. However, in men who are balding, the follicle fails to grow a new hair. Why this occurs is not well understood, but it is related to your genes and male sex hormones. Even though the follicles are small, they remain alive, suggesting the possibility of new growth.
Male pattern baldness does not indicate a medical disorder, but it may affect self-esteem or cause anxiety. The hair loss is usually permanent. Hair loss affects every aspect of their life. It affects interpersonal relationships as well as their professional life. It is not uncommon for men to change their career paths because of hair loss.
Causes of Hair Loss in Women
It seems incredible to most people that a woman might lose her hair. After all – isn’t that something that only happens to men? The truth is that many women suffer from hair loss and that Female Pattern Hair Loss (or FPHL for short) can be emotionally devastating. According to the American Association of Dermatologist, hair loss among women is common and approximately 30 million American women suffer from hereditary hair loss.
Androgenetic alopecia in a woman (sometimes termed androgenic alopecia) is the diagnosis of Female Pattern Hair loss. Most women associate this hair loss with post-menopausal changes, but it can happen at any time, even starting as early as a woman’s late teens and twenties. It typically takes the form of decreased hair mass on the top of the head but sparing the frontal hairline.
Hair loss can occur in women for reasons other than female pattern baldness, including the following:
- Temporary shedding of hair
- Breaking of hair (from such things as styling treatments and twisting or pulling of hair)
- Patchy areas of total hair loss
- Certain skin diseases
- Hormonal abnormalities
- Iron deficiency
- Under-active thyroid
- Vitamin deficiency
Candidates for Hair Transplants
Candidates for hair restoration surgery are those individuals in good health with moderate hair loss and sufficient donor hair on the back of the scalp to transplant into the balding areas. Those with more donor hair, greater hair density and fullness can typically expect fuller results. It is also important that you have reasonable cosmetic goals. Hair transplantation can achieve very good, natural results but cannot restore your hair to the density you had as a teenager. Your doctor will assess the amount of coverage needed to give you the appearance you desire.
NeoGraft Hair Transplant Process
Hair transplantation is a process in which hair is taken from the back of the head or donor area and replaced in areas where hair loss has occurred. The NeoGraft system uses a special technology that can quickly remove the hair follicles from the donor area and implant them to balding areas. NeoGraft uses a controlled pneumatic pressure to slide out the graft smoothly, so there is no pulling or twisting which can risk damaging the graft. NeoGraft transplant is faster and the grafts can be re-implanted sooner which keeps them more robust, increasing the success of the grafting process.
