Hair loss in men begins primarily with stepping back of the front hairline. Then it continues with thinning of hair on the middle section and the top of the head. We call it the typical man type hair loss / baldness or an androgenic alopecia. Hormone induced hair loss is a frequently emerging and common process among men. It continues with thinning, discolouration and miniaturisation of hair and finally the hair does not grow again.
Can hair loss and thinning in women be treated? Yes, an examination will determine if the patient’s hair is appropriate for a transplant. The biggest concern for women is if it would be necessary to cut their hair short or to shave the hair. A hair transplant surgery can be performed without cutting the hair short, but in such cases there might be additional surgeries necessary.
With hair transplants we target to fill up or cover the aesthetically disturbing hairless areas with the own hair of the patient. Accordingly we transplant hair from the neck to the hairless areas on the head. We pay special attention to a natural look and transplanted hair may not be differentiated from the natural hair structure. The transplantable hair is located on the back of the head between the ears and above the neck. This hair is genetically resistant to hair loss. With this procedure, hair is removed homogeneously and transplanted to the hairless areas and to the areas with sparse hair on the head.
Hair transplant procedures can be performed on men or women at any age. It is preferable to reduce the hair loss with therapies and treatments in the first and active stage. Like in each medical and surgical procedure an examination is required to find out if a hair transplant procedure is necessary or suitable or which method is appropriate for the patient. Additionally, factors like hair structure, hair growth, hair loss, similar cases in the family, hair features of the donor area, age, the state of health of the patient are evaluated and examined by our specialists.
The quality of hair on the donor area and the density of hair are important features for us before the procedure. The donor area should have dense and healthy hair so that we can fill up and cover the thinning and hairless areas.
Patients who still suffer from hair loss or in whom hair loss is not completed, will be evaluated differently. It is expected that hair loss will be completed at the age of 40+. HT-procedures performed at this age are ideal to get good results. HT-procedures undergone at younger ages, reduce the image loss by patients and support the present hair as a treatment. Accordingly the procedures before the age of 40 are also recommendable. If the existing hair would fall out in the meanwhile, patients should know that they might need to take a second hair transplant later on in their lives.
Hair deceases or hair losses caused by some systematic health problems are evaluated differently. In these cases it may not be necessary to undergo a hair transplant. In such cases the corresponding treatments and therapies are recommended and provided.
Hairless and sparse areas after hair loss due to burn wounds, traumas or surgical wounds can be covered successfully.
The choice of the right clinic, the procedures performed by the competent specialists and all factors mentioned above are important to get natural and permanent results.
Patients willing to undergo the procedures and searching for hair transplants, look firstly for the best hair transplant clinic and the best specialist to perform the treatment. These searches are mostly done on the Internet. It is particularly important that the procedures should be undergone in clinics or hospitals.
We recommend patients to undergo procedures performed by competent specialists, qualified and experienced health teams at the right place under sterile operating conditions. Research results and observations have proven that patients get back their self-confidence with procedures successfully performed, they feel comfortable with their new look and they enjoy happier lives.
