Hair Transplant FAQs By Robert True on May 02, 2014

New York Hair Transplant FAQsHair loss is a serious concern for many men and women alike. When it occurs, you might feel helpless to stop it, and its influence on your self-confidence can affect nearly every aspect of your life. With a wealth of services and products offering to rejuvenate your head of hair and replenish what was lost, it can be easy to fall for the hype of an inadequate solution, and the failure to restore your youthful head of hair might further affect your self-image. For people who’ve lost, or are losing, their natural hair, the specialists at our New York hair clinic answer some common hair loss FAQs to help you better understand your situation, and what you can do about it.

What Causes Hair Loss?

Hair loss, clinically known as alopecia, can be caused by a number of factors, the most common of which are hereditary. Other hair loss causes can include:

  • Hormonal factors
  • Medical conditions, such as;
  • Thyroid problems
  • Scalp infections
  • Skin disorders
  • Excessive stress
  • Severe physical or emotional shock

Does Hair Loss Affect Women, Too?

Yes. Approximately 40 percent of adults in the United States who experience hair loss are women, and it occurs for many of the same reasons as male hair loss. Issues specific to women that can increase the risk of hair loss may consist of:

  • Hormonal changes after giving birth
  • Changes after discontinuing birth control
  • Excessive amounts of estrogen

How Does a Hair Transplant Work?

Not every hair follicle on your head is susceptible to the factors that cause baldness. The hairs at the back of your head, for instance, are genetically resistant to falling out, even if they’re extracted and replanted elsewhere on the head. Hair transplantation aims to reestablish the hair-growing process throughout the whole head by relocating some of the bald-resistant hair follicles. Using advanced technology and techniques, Dr. Robert H. True and Dr. Robert J. Dorin can perform your hair transplant with no visible scarring, ensuring that all signs of the procedure are hidden within the hair.

When Should I Decide to Receive Hair Transplants?

The decision to do something about your hair loss is a personal one, as is taking the first step to stopping it. Before making any decisions, you should be aware of all of your treatment options, and our hair loss clinic focuses on helping you understand your condition, not just treating it. Dr. True and Dr. Dorin, both highly-skilled hair restoration surgeons, will take the time to explain the factors that are, or may be, contributing to your current hair loss condition. They will also detail your viable options and how each one may help you halt or reverse hair loss.
