Increased hair loss has a genetic cause in many cases. It is mostly men who are affected.
Firstly, a receding hairline develops and bald spots appear at the back of the head, before the top of the head becomes affected.
In addition to medicinal treatment options, which have led to a good level of success in the recent past, there is the possibility of treating hair loss with autologous hair transplantation.
The operation is performed in several phases under local anaesthesia. Hormone insensitive hair roots are removed from the back of the head and introduced into bald sites. There they continue to grow for the rest of the patient’s life and produce healthy hair.
