Men can lose their hair for many reasons. Knowing the cause is important to potentially help find the treatment. Too often men go for years without the correct diagnosis and waste valuable time and not to mention heartache.
Male pattern baldness is most commonly due to hormones and a genetic predisposition. The hairs become sensitive to dihydrotestosterone which shortens the growth phase from years to months. There are other causes of hair loss that need to be excluded. Your surgeon at HTCA can help with this.
Treatments are hair transplantation, the best being follicular unit extraction. Other treatments are wigs, 5-alpha-reductase inhibitors, minoxidil solution and micro-pigmentation (tattoo).
