Hair Transplants

Socrates, who was bald, consoled himself by saying: “The grass cannot grow on an active street” but not everyone has the wisdom of this Greek philosopher who had little choice but to be fatalistic to the loss of his hair. Today, losing one’s hair, the symbol of both seduction and power, is no longer an unchangeable and definitive phenomenon. Some drugs can stabilize the hair loss but no products can bring back the hair once it is lost. We now have hair surgery that allows us to state that baldness is no longer a lost cause. The micro-graft for hair gives definitive and natural results. For the past 15 years, this type of surgery has witnessed a constant progression and produced an explosion of knowledge surrounding hair, hair loss,

The use of surgery.

The leading cause of baldness in 99% of men is hormonal and genetic. It is the degradation of the testosterone hormone into a metabolic product that is going to be at the origin of seborrhea. The latter is harmful to the hair because it will have a suffocating effect on hair growth in the frontal and temporal hairy areas where the follicles have testosterone receptors and not on the crown where the hair is lacking. No 2 men are a like when it comes to baldness: frequent within the white race (which are therefore more frequently subjects of hair transplantation), it is less so in people of African descent and rarer still in Asians. These differences are also found in the very nature of the hair and their whitening process … which has no connection, moreover, with baldness. In most cases, baldness is not a shock. At first, the hair thins out, then progressively becomes more and more thin before disappearing completely. When observing baldness and its progression from a “geographical” point of view results vary: either the balding begins on the upper left and right parts from the forehead, marking an accentuation of the “receding hair line” and then marking a uniform retreat from the frontal edge to the crest of the skull; or it begins on the scalp. In time, baldness of the forehead and scalp often converge, leading to baldness called “Hippocratic wreath”, in memory of the Greek doctor, in which the hair remains only on a crown located at the temples and neck. For us, it is important to know the evolution of baldness in relation to age. Often through photos, in order to appreciate precisely the evolutionary process. An already balding man in his 20’s will have a good chance of being extremely bald in the future. On the other hand, the same baldness occurring in a man of 40 years will progress slower with time. Whatever your case, hair surgery is the solution to bring back your hair and reclaim your youthful appearance.
