Hair loss can have a dramatic impact on a person’s appearance. Surgical hair restoration, or a hair transplant, can result in improved self esteem and a more youthful and vigorous appearance.
It is estimated that 35 million men in the United States are affected by male pattern baldness or androgenetic alopecia. In men who develop male pattern baldness the hair loss may begin any time after puberty when blood levels of androgens rise. The first change is usually recession in the temporal areas, which is seen in 96 percent of mature Caucasian males, including those men not destined to progress to further hair loss.
Unlike hair loss in men, female scalp hair loss may commonly begin at any age through 50 or later and may not have any obvious hereditary association. A woman who notices the beginning of hair loss may not be sure if the loss is going to be temporary or permanent—for example, if there has been a recent event such as pregnancy or illness that may be associated with temporary hair thinning.
