Hair Transplantation Atlanta
A Surgical Answer for Hair Loss
If you are suffering from premature hair loss, you’re not alone. Two-thirds of American men experience some degree of hair loss by the age of 35, and by the age of 50, 85% of men will have thinning hair. Although hair thinning is triggered by a testosterone derivative, it can make you feel anything but virile. It can make you feel older than you want, and make you self-conscious about your appearance.
If you’re not ready to accept hairlessness, if you want to maintain a youthful, attractive appearance, and if you’re looking for a reliable hair restoration treatment, you should consider hair transplantation. To learn whether hair transplantation is an option for you, please contact our Atlanta plastic surgeon at Marietta Plastic Surgery to schedule a hair restoration consultation.
Hair Transplantation – Who Benefits?
Many men feel anxiety over thinning hair. Women also experience anxiety about hair loss that may be even more significant because it is less common. The loss of your crowning glory can affect your personal and professional relationships.
Though hundreds of products have been marketed to stem hair loss, few of these products have been clinically proven as effective. Even when effective, results take time to achieve and vary widely from person to person. Surgical hair transplantation gives predictable results in the improvement of:
- Significant hair loss
- Thinning hair
- Bald spots
If you are a good candidate for hair transplantation, you can see significant improvement in these areas after just one treatment. In rare cases, you may need two or three operations to achieve the full hair density you desire.
Possible Hair Loss Causes
While many reasons exist for hair loss, male pattern baldness (MPB) is responsible for the vast number of cases in men. Heredity is a factor in MPB and will cause the hairline to gradually recede, exposing greater parts of the forehead. Other individuals may note thinning at the crown and top of the skull. Women’s hair loss is typically caused by hormonal changes and results in a global thinning of the hair. Other causes of hair loss may include:
- Medication reaction
- Serious disease
- Extremely stressful events
- Trauma or burns
