A person’s hair plays a strong role in their overall appearance and is one of the main characteristics in describing someone (e.g. blonde, long hair, bald). Male pattern baldness generally starts as a recession of hairline in the frontal hairline and temporal regions. Because this is the first thing that a person notices when identifying hair loss, the hairline is the most important part of a hair transplant. Without a frontal hair line to frame your face, you are considered “bald”.
Hair loss can be caused by androgenetic alopecia (male pattern baldness), certain auto-immune problems, or hormonal problems such as a thyroid problem. Whatever may be causing the hair loss, the primary goal of treatment is to restore the hair that was lost in a way that is effective and long-term.
