Hair transplant basics

  • You are your own donor: Hair is harvested from the back of your head. This area is a non-testosterone zone which means the hair follicles in it survive most of your lifetime and are ideal for continuing their life on the receptive area.
  • There are two methods of hair restoration: FUT and FUE: The two most successful and proven methods of hair restoration are FUT and FUE. Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) involves surgically removing a thin strip of your scalp. On this strip are thousands of healthy hair follicles that are then implanted to the area being restored, one hair at a time. Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) removes individual hair follicles directly from the scalp. This means there is not the necessity of removing a long section of scalp, resulting in a long scar. This is the recommended option for patients who are young or who want to wear their hair very short.
  • The results you’ve always wanted: Dr. Asaria delivers high volume FUE and FUT, giving his patients significant relief from hair loss. With his painstaking, rigorous approach, he cuts no corners in restoring the crown and hairline for every single patient. By limiting himself to one hair transplant procedure per day, Dr. Asaria takes all the time necessary to ensure the results are natural and stable.

What causes male hair loss?

Male pattern hair loss occurs due to a combination of factors, including genetic, environmental, and hormonal factors. Your inherited genes determine how sensitive you are to certain hormones called androgens and dihydrotestosterone (DHT). Each hair strand goes through a life cycle that includes 2 to 6 years of growth, followed by a resting phase, and then it falls out. Once the hair follicle falls out, it’s replaced by a new follicle that resumes the same process.

However, increased androgens in the hair follicles shorten the life cycle of your hair follicles, making them last a few weeks or months. Meanwhile, increased dihydrotestosterone (DHT) makes the new hair follicles appear smaller and thinner than before. Over time, increased androgens and dihydrotestosterone in your hair lead to smaller and thinner hair follicles that fall out relatively fast, leading to eventual baldness.

What are the 7 stages of male hair loss?

Most men don’t realize they’re suffering from baldness until it’s too late. However, the sooner you discover that you’re experiencing baldness, the sooner you can take remedial actions to preserve your hair. The best way to identify male hair loss at its initial stages is to familiarize yourself with the 7 stages of male hair loss.

The Norwood scale (or Hamilton-Norwood scale) is the standardized measurement for the stages of male hair loss. Men experience hair loss in one of several easily identified patterns, and the Norwood scale provides easy identification markers for each stage. While there are several classifications for male hair loss, the Norwood is one of the most popular and understandable.

The following are the 7 stages of male hair loss.

  • Stage 1: No noticeable hair loss or hairline recession, with the hair slightly thinning around the temples.
  • Stage 2: The hair starts thinning around the temples and forehead gradually. Your forehead appears wider, and your temples are prominent. You might notice an M-shaped hairline when you pull back your hair.
  • Stage 3: Most men start noticing balding at this stage. The hairline recedes deeper as your forehead widens even more. You’ll notice a prominent M-, U-, or V-shaped hairline with bald spots in different areas. The hair at the top of the scalp will be especially thin and sparse.
  • Stage 4: The bald spots at the back of your head become extremely evident and difficult to hide. At this stage, complete baldness might be inevitable.
  • Stage 5: You notice a horseshoe-shaped or U-shaped hairline due to extreme recession. Hair loss becomes increasingly difficult to treat at this stage.
  • Stage 6: You have thin and wispy hair follicles on your head with extremely visible and wide bald spots. You also start losing hair from the sides of your head.
  • Stage 7: You’ve lost most of your hair, with only a small patch of hair growing on either side of the head.

If you identify with any of the stages on the Norwood scale mentioned above, please consult Dr. Asaria to discuss your hair loss treatment options.
