Jun 12, 2008
It is natural to lose hair and is part of the body's way to renew itself. The list of all the possible causes is exceedingly long but it is a common problem that affects millions of men, women, and children.

Alopecia is the general medical term for hair loss of any type. Male pattern hair loss is the most common form, representing close to 95 percent of all cases in men; and due to a hereditary condition: Androgenic Alopecia.

If your hair loss is more moderate, however, it's possible your nutrition and diet have a something to do with it. The reason for your condition may be at your work place if you deal with chemicals or cosmetics but some others may as a consequence of personal situations such as stress, mental tension or a hormonal imbalance.

No matter what the reason, it is worth remembering that it is only if the hair follicles are damaged that can make the condition permanent. Surprisingly, women account for nearly 4 in every 10 sufferers in America today; so it is not, as commonly thought, a male problem.

The main difference between the sexes is that women will more than likely lose their hair later in life and it is often attributable to thyroid problems.

By the time they reach sixty, forty percent of women around the world will have experienced loss of some form or another. Pregnant women are sometimes susceptible to some hair loss often lasting until after the child is born. Approximately 30 million women in the United States experience female pattern, hereditary baldness.

Surgical hair restoration is the ultimate solution for permanent hair loss restoration but is comparatively a new treatment approach.

Hair follicles that are healthy and undamaged are taken from the scalp and transplanted to an area where the follicles have been damaged for whatever reason. Now the most common hair transplant treatment for men, it is carried out as an out-patient basis under local anesthetic.

However, hair restoration is also not only for men any more, hair transplants for women are also achievable today and is a frequent choice of women who have scarring from previous surgery, notably from facelifts.

The best result you can go for is to try and recapture how you originally looked when you have hair transplant surgery and not attempt to change your appearance. A consideration before any hair transplant surgery is commenced is the physical and mental wellbeing of the recipient.

Hair restoration therapy comes under the general umbrella of cosmetic surgery but aspects of it are completely different form other cosmetic treatments.

Fortunately, the science of hair loss and hair restoration is constantly advancing, so if you do not respond to other medical treatments, surgical hair restoration may be the only truly permanent solution to baldness.

The only drawback of hair restoration is the immense cost. Be prepared to pay at least $600 a year. The full procedure including maintenance will last 15 years.
