Hair Replacement for Men
There are many men who accept their hair loss (usually due to inherited male pattern baldness) but an equal number for whom the balding process causes significant social and psychological distress.
Some degree of hair loss will be experienced by up to 80% of men and up 35% of women. No other facial feature changes one's appearance as much as the presence of a 'normal' hairline - and the radical alternative of shaving the head does not suit every individual.
The Wimpole Clinic offers a number of medical and surgical options for dealing with hair loss/male pattern baldness. These include non-surgical treatments such as Propecia tablets or Minoxidil lotion and the surgical options for hair replacement.
Hair transplants have become an increasingly important and popular choice for both men and women and it is not uncommon for patients of every age to choose this route to hair restoration - from the 20s up to and including the late 60s to 70s. The hair transplant surgeon in the UK now has the ability to transplant hair exactly as it grows in nature, creating totally natural new hair growth that is undetectable even under close examination.
