Hair Density / Loss

Genetics play an important role in both men and women"s hair loss. However, the pattern in which the hair is lost varies and additional medical conditions typically play a larger role with female pattern baldness.

Surgical Hair Replacement

Men typically lose their hair as a result of the aging process as well as hereditary issues. Research suggests that this condition comes primarily from the men on the maternal side of an individuals’ family. Male pattern baldness (also known as Androgenetic or Androgenic Alopecia) is identified by its trends and appearance, and the severity is classified by The Norwood Classification system. Most often hair begins receding at the temple areas and moves its way toward the crown. Another less common form of loss begins at the front of the hairline. You can gauge your level of loss and pattern by referencing this site (link here to Norwood Classification).

Women"s hair loss typically impacts the entire head, and can be caused by age, genetics or multiple health circumstances, including pregnancy, thyroid issues, Polycystic ovary Syndrome, and crash dieting.

Regardless of the cause both women and men are potential candidates for hair restoration surgery to supplement remaining hair and improve the thickness and coverage.
