Male Hair Loss
Male hair loss and male pattern baldness are primarily caused by genetics, affecting millions of men of all ages. Dr. Kenneth A. Buchwach in Leawood, KS, can treat balding and thinning of hair with a hair transplant procedure, using the latest techniques and technologies. Dr. Buchwach’s expertise in hair restoration can help provide patients with permanent, natural-looking results. Patient education is important in the success of any medical procedure, and Dr. Buchwach invites you to learn more about this condition and how he can help.
Causes of Male Hair Loss
Hair loss can occur for a number of reasons. For most men, hair naturally thins with age. This loss is gradual and may not result in baldness. Androgenetic alopecia, or male pattern baldness, can begin in a man’s late teens or early 20s or even much later in life. It typically starts as a receding hairline near the front of the scalp. Eventually, it may results in hair loss extending from the hair line back to the crown.
Androgenetic alopecia, or male pattern baldness, can begin in a man’s late teens or early 20s or even much later in life.
Researchers have found several different factors that can contribute to hair loss:
- Abnormal hormone levels
- Chronic stress or illnesses
- Chemical hair treatments
- Skin or scalp trauma, such as burns or other scars
- Autoimmune diseases and certain medical conditions, such as lupus, thyroid disease, and diabetes
We have all heard stories about hair loss due to wearing hats all the time or stress, but in truth for most men the “culprits” are their parents. Even if a balding male's immediate family has no hair loss the “hair loss gene” is still potentially viable and that male just happened to inherit it.
Negative Effects of Hair Loss
Hair loss can affect a man’s self-esteem and self-confidence. Baldness can make a man appear older than his actual age. Hair loss is particularly difficult for men who began balding at a younger age. The lack of confidence men experience can affect their professional and personal lives.
Is Hair Restoration Right for You?
If you are suffering from permanent hair loss, you are likely a good candidate for hair restoration. These treatments are most appropriate for men of any age even in their early 20s. The technique Dr. Buchwach uses will depend on the patient’s overall goals, preferred hairstyles, and severity of hair loss.
Benefits of Hair Restoration
Hair restoration through hair transplant surgery can eliminate baldness. By harvesting hair grafts from another area of the head and transferring them to the balding areas, patients can achieve a natural looking head of hair. The results are permanent. After a period of just four months, the hair will begin to grow at a rate of one half inch per month.
