Male pattern Baldness is a condition which is a very serious problem faced by men and over the years many solutions have been presented but none has stood the test of time than a hair transplant procedure which is very safe and gives satisfactory results. According to Dr. O’tar Norwood whose definition of male pattern baldness is also called the Norwood classification, Androgenic Alopecia is a condition which affects men and there are two major patterns and several less common types (see the chart beside). In the regular Norwood pattern the two areas of hair loss are
What happens is the hair line gradually recedes until the entire front and top and crown (vertex) of the scalp are bald. Enzymes in male bodies convert testosterone – the principal male sex hormone – into dihydroxytestosterone and this is the principal factor behind miniaturisation of hair follicles.
There are three types of distinctive and concurrent phases in hair cycles called Anagen, Catagen and Telogen phases. Each phase has precise purpose and characteristics that determine the outcome of the length of the hair. Since all three phases run concurrently the strand of hair can be in the different category. Let’s talk about an Example like one strand of hair might be in the Catagen Stage, while the other one is in the Telogen Stage.
The hair on your scalp has its roots which are inside a cavity in the skin names as a follicle. Hair receding begins when the hair follicle shrinks over time and there is not enough time for the new follicle to take its place which results in shorter and finer hair. This leads to the inability for new hair to grow. However, the follicles which should have followed the normal growth cycle remain dormant, which gives the strong possibility for new hair to grow.
Baldness is not just a medical condition which can affect someone’s confidence and self-esteem. Hair is an integral part of our appearance and the only way to reverse your baldness with a permanent solution is to have Hair transplantation which is one of the safest surgical procedures. Patients usually have little or no discomfort during or after the procedure is successfully completed and can get back to normal activities within a couple of days. In few months you would be able to see new hair growing and within no time you have regained your confidence and self-esteem back.
