Fue Hair Transplant for Men
Up to 50% of men will experience some degree of hair loss by the time they reach 50. For many, hair loss will occur far earlier whilst they are in their 20s, 30s or even late teens. The main cause for 95% of men is experiencing a thinning scalp called Androgenetic Alopecia – more commonly referred to as Male Pattern Baldness. The hereditary condition occurs when a male hormone called dihydrotestosterone causes certain follicles to shrink and produce abnormal hair with a shorter life. Other causes of hair loss in men include stress, disease, and physical reactions to medication, but ıt changes according to your medical situation. Hair loss is always about much more of a receding hairline. It can deeply affect an individual’s confidence and self-esteem, and we believe that’s the most important thing to address. FUE hair transplant procedures are definitely possible for patients of African descent or patients with curly hair. The procedure can be a bit more time-consuming and it is best performed by a team that is experienced with hair type, but it is absolutely possible. For most men, it is preferable to have FUE because there is no resulting strip or scar on the back of the scalp that is visible if the hair is worn short. We would suggest a consultation but know that skin and hair type does not exclude you from the procedure.
Follicular Unit Extraction or FUE hair transplant is a minimally invasive technique that is used to harvest and transplant hair. The procedure removes individual follicular units directly from the patient’s donor site, which are then replanted where needed.
