male hair loss stages hair restoration

Male pattern hair loss (MPB). Is a genetic condition. That affects the majority of men over their lives. With 60-70% of all men. To varying degrees. Also known as androgenic alopecia. The Norwood Scale (NW) is a stage classification of MPB. The NW scale starts at 1 at its most minor. Concluding with NW 7 as the most progressive hair loss pattern. The hair loss stage and hair restoration are directly linked.

Hair restoration is dependent on the quality of genetically strong hair. Also, the age, and the potential of further hair loss. MPB is inherited. From either of your parents. Even when there is no direct hair loss in the immediate family. A result of a condition known as a spontaneous mutation. Whereby the genetic information changes at conception. Generally, the norm is to follow a similar hair loss pattern to other male family members. Hair loss can cause deep psychological effects. Consequently, can affect self-confidence. Also. the ability to interact with others easily.

Living with hair loss

As genetic hair loss is natural. Not affecting health in anyway. There is no reason not to ignore. Subsequently just live with whatever hair loss pattern concludes. But, having the ability to restore lost hair. When genetics has deprived us. Is a strong argument to restoring lost hair. But, it is a personal choice with no right or wrong answer.

Hair loss knows no barriers. For instance, be it the age, gender, and genre. Hair restoration can restore lost hairlines and hair coverage. As well as lost confidence. As a good head of hair. Restores a more youthful appearance. As a result a feel-good factor within ourselves. Treating remedial thinning to progressive hair loss stages. The hair loss stage and hair restoration requires careful planning. From the hairline design to which hair transplant technique to use. FUT or FUE. As a result, occasionally surgical hair restoration is not the answer. With alternatives such as a hair loss treatments and non-surgical options. Hair loss stage and hair restoration method are important considerations.

What you want – goals and expectations are they realistic?

Younger hair loss sufferers are often bigger risk takers. Meaning, they may not wish to listen to the logic. For instance, wanting to undergo a hair transplant at a young age. Without considering a hair loss treatment. Knowing the hair loss is active. As well as progressive hair loss in the family. A receding hairline at a younger age. Increases the anxiety of premature aging. Consequently, can make an individual want to restore their original hairline. Without considering the consequences.

A hair restoration doctor. Has a responsibility to explain all the pros and cons available. To insist on whether an individual is a good or bad candidate. To a specific hair restoration option. For instance, restoring a low rounded adolescent hairline on a younger man. May look fine today. But over the coming years becomes more unnatural looking with every year. Consequently a doctor must consider that not everyone is a good hair transplant candidate. For a number of reasons. Not always technical.

Starting your hair restoration journey

If hair loss is a concern. The first step is to start researching. What options are available. Importantly, on first glance what options may not be suitable. Also, measured against goals and expectations. As this may influence the available options. When planning hair restoration, we must consider several factors. As a hair transplant does not cure or stop further hair loss. We can look at your age, hair loss pattern and estimate future hair loss to a degree. Then assess the donor hair quality. To measure how many grafts we can safely remove over one and multiple procedures.

A hair transplant is possible because our hair around the back and sides of our head (donor hair) is genetically immune from the male pattern hair loss gene. The number of hairs that can be safely removed differs from person to person. Depending on the hair quality and donor area size. Taking into consideration how hair naturally changes as we age. Regardless whether male pattern hair loss continues. How important it is to look into the future cannot be underestimated. Whether the initial plan. Will work with the potential for hair loss in the future. As well as can a natural hair coverage be maintained over time.

Improvements in surgical hair restoration

Hair transplants are a permanent form of hair restoration. Over the years there have been many advances in the techniques. Today, the FUT – Follicular Unit Transplant and FUE – Follicular Unit Extraction methods are used. For both male and female hair loss conditions. They differ in the hair extraction process. Also, it is important to understand there are limitations. Regardless of the technique. For instance, there are limitations to the donor hair. Coupled with your age and potential for future hair loss.

FUT a hair-bearing strip is removed from the donor and then the skin is sutured. The suture dissolves over the next two weeks. The linear scar is hidden under a little hair length when healed. The hair-bearing strip is separated into single hair units. With 1 to 4 hairs per unit. Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE), the hair around the sides and back are shaved. To allow for the careful removal of the natural groups of follicular units. The extraction is spread around the donor area to minimise any changes to your hair density. There is no suture and the small white dots heal over the first two weeks.

How the hairs are placed into the hairline is the same. Regardless of which technique is used. The transplanted hair units are placed to mimic natural hair growth. From single hair units along the immediate hairline. To multiple hair units building the hair density behind. Using surgical and artistic skills along with natural hair characteristics plays a role in creating the look of fullness.

Making the right choices

Anyone choosing to restore their hair. Will want to achieve a result that is thick and natural. In reality, this is going to come down to a few important factors. The natural hair characteristics combined with the age and hair loss pattern of the candidate. Then the doctor that performs the hair transplant. As not all hair transplants are the same. Consequently research to ensure the doctor meets all goals and expectations. An online hair consultation assessment is a good start.
