Androgenic Alopecia(Male Baldness):

Hair Transplant is new advance revolutionary technique to cure androgenic alopecia type of baldness. Androgenic Alopecia type of baldness is very common now. Recent trends show that its now more common in younger age group of 20 to 30 years. Mostly patients  come to my clinic are around 25 years. There are multiple cause for  baldness.
 Hormonal - Main reason is male androgen hormones. It causes falling of hair from front and top of scalp. But hair present in back of scalp are resistant to this hormone so hair present in this area never fall off.  This area is used as donor for hair transplant.




Familial and genetically - People are more prone to have  baldness who have family history of androgenic alopecia. Study shows that child may have more chance to get baldness whose father has androgenic alopecia. Genetics is also an important factor in this problem.






 WHAT IS FUE AND FUT?

Mainly hair transplant has two technique FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) and FUT  (Strip method). Few year back when FUE method was not developed and skilled surgeons were not available FUT method was very popular. In FUT surgeons cut out the strips from the back of scalp. This method is less time consuming and not much skills needed. But due to removal whole strip from the back of scalp large scars come which could be visible. Due to stitches after strip removal there is always feeling of tightness and pain which may persist for long time. This method is almost obsolete now. Not many surgeons are in favour of FUT now.
