There are many reasons for hair loss, but 95% of all cases in men are due to a condition called "androgenetic alopecia." This is commonly referred to as "male pattern baldness.
Most cases of hair loss in women are due to inherited female pattern balding, but medical conditions such as low thyroid levels, hormonal imbalances (elevated testosterone), binge dieting, and pregnancy can contribute to the condition.
You may lose 10 to 100 strands of hair per day. The hair goes through a generation, growth and fall cycle which continues again with generation of new hair. You do not become bald because you are losing more hair, you will become bald when the lost hair is not replaced with new hair.
Once transplanted, these hair will continue to grow for a lifetime, they can be groomed, shampooed and require haircuts like normal hair. The only permanent remedy for hair loss is surgical Hair Restoration or hair transplantation.
Follicular Unit Extraction is a method of hair restoration in which the hair follicles are extracted from the back of the head (donor area) under local anaesthesia. The extraction is done with the help of special micro punches. The extracted grafts are then implanted in the balding or thinning area. This procedure is a stitch less method as we do not cut the strip for extraction of grafts.
Anybody above the age of 18 having hair loss from Grade I may be considered for hair transplant through FUE method.
