Hair transplantation is a transplantation technique by moving individual hair follicles from a part of body called “donor area” to balding part known as the “recipient area”
It is used to treat “Androgenetic alopecia” male baldness pattern. Grafts containing hair follicles of receipt area are genetically resistant to male hormone “testosterone” which case balding, and back of the head is the best Donor area for Transplantation..
Hair loss factors
The most common type of hair loss for men and also for women related to 02 basic factors:
- Genetic Factor: which can be noticed in first and second degree of relatives.
- Hormonal Factor: 5-Alpha reductase hormone transforms testosterone into dihydrotestosterone(DHT). Dihydrotestosterone(DHT) is the main cause of shortening the life cycle of the hair.
With each transformation, the hair weakens more and more. And that is noticed when the hair starts to thin and loss gradually.
