Why are you experiencing hair lossBay Area Hair Transplant

If you’re considering a hair transplant in the Bay Area, Parsa Mohebi Hair Restoration can help.

Hair loss can severely affect our self image and esteem. In a society that places so much emphasis on appearances (especially our hair), it can be demoralizing to notice a slightly receding hairline, or a slowly growing bald spot. When your hair starts to go, you might resign yourself to your fate – but that’s a mentality you should never be satisfied with.

Losing hair is a fact of life. In fact, people lose between 50 and 100 hairs every day. But when hair doesn’t grow back, you might have a problem on your hands. There are many different causes of hair loss, and only a few tried-and-true remedies. Read on to learn more about hair loss, and how a hair transplant can give you the full head of hair you deserve.

Causes of Hair Loss

There are actually several different types of hair loss. Sometimes hair loss is caused by stress. In other cases, hair loss is caused by medication, particularly radiation therapy. Still other instances of hair loss are a result of dietary or lifestyle choices. In all these cases, hair tends to grow back. But unfortunately, that’s not the case with the most notorious type of hair loss.

Male pattern baldness (MPB) affects over half of all men aged 50 and up. It’s hereditary, meaning it’s passed on through your genes. And when you start losing hair because of MPB, it doesn’t grow back. Despite the widespread male pattern baldness, there are only a few FDA-approved medications to counter or reverse hair loss related to male pattern baldness.

How can I stop my MPB?

The only FDA-approved medications that counter male pattern baldness are Rogaine and Propecia. Both take several months to show any results (if at all) and require regular application and use for the rest of your life. If you really want to get your hair loss under control, it might be time to consider seeing a doctor for hair transplants in the Bay Area.

Hair transplants seem like a major step, but they’re effective. When a doctor performs a hair transplant surgery on a patient, they remove hair from the back or sides of the patient’s scalp (where hair is thickest) and transplant the hair to the top and front of the scalp (where hair is thinnest). There are two options for hair transplants: FUT, and FUE.

FUT (short for Follicular Unit Transplantation) involves a surgeon cutting a strip of your skin from the back or side of your head, and grafting it where your scalp has gone bald. This method works best in patients who have already experienced severe balding, but it does leave a noticeable scar (unless the patient opts for a longer hairstyle). It also means a longer recovery time, as a doctor will have to remove sutures a few weeks after your treatment.

FUE (short for Follicular Unit Extraction) is like FUT, but instead of surgically removing a section of your scalp, your doctor will remove only the follicles. This leads to much less scarring, and a more natural appearance. FUE also has a quicker recovery time, as there are no sutures or skin grafts required.
