Hair transplantation represents a very complicated operative procedure, which can only be performed on the basis of a extremely thorough analysis of the physical constitution of the patient. During the treatment, I employ microsurgery to re-transplant healthy hair-roots, which are not in danger of falling out, to regions of the head where hair loss has already occurred. There are various different ways to transplant intact hair roots.
The aesthetic plastic procedure represents the method currently enjoying most popularity; particularly amongst men whose hair loss is due to genetic pre-disposition, age and the individual concentration of the male sex hormone, testosterone. A circular-shaped bald patch is also occasionally observed in women, but this forms a result of an illness called Alopecia areata.
