Approximately 95 percent of men struggling with hair loss have inherited the genetic trait that causes male pattern baldness. Two out of three men show some effects of male pattern baldness by age 35, and 25 percent of this group starts losing hair before their 21st birthday. Understandably, it can be upsetting for young men to appear older than they are due to hair loss. It can cause significant emotional distress, such as depression and lowered self-esteem. Although many people would deny it, balding men tend to have more difficulty attracting partners and advancing in their careers. No wonder they feel discouraged.

If you have inherited the gene for male pattern baldness, you have probably tried several different ways to disguise your hair loss. The thought of actually being able to grow your own hair again never crossed your mind. When methods such as taking vitamins and supplements, using a medicated shampoo, or wearing a hairpiece proved less than satisfactory, you may have assumed that the only option you had left was to accept that you’re slowly going bald. In a society that tends to associate youth and vigor with a full head of hair, that wasn’t a particularly appealing alternative either.

Hair Transplant and Hair Restoration Options for Men

Learn more about balding and hair loss in menWe provide this free directory to men in the Philadelphia area who are just starting to explore their options for hair restoration. The doctors listed here offer both surgical and non-surgical options for your convenience.

Non-surgical options are often ideal for men who are at the earliest stages of male pattern baldness. These procedures have the benefit of being less invasive and more cost-effective for those who are concerned about such issues. It is also a good choice if you or your doctor want to attempt a more conservative treatment approach before attempting hair restoration surgery.

The most common non-surgical hair restoration options include Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy, ACell, and Low Level Light Therapy (LLLT). The first and second options help you to re-grow your own hair by stimulating dormant hair follicles with a powdered matrix and the growth factors in your own blood platelets. With LLLT, you wear a special hat that transmits laser energy to your scalp. Short sessions at regular intervals can help you achieve your hair re-growth goals.

Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) and Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) give men with significant balding hope that they too can grow their own hair again. With male pattern baldness, the hair at the back and sides of the scalp is better able to withstand the effects of the hormone dihydrotestosterone better than the hair on top. Surgeons use different methods to extract healthy hair follicles from these areas and transfer them to the balding areas. With both FUE and FUT, your natural hair emerges in about six months and continues growing throughout your life. Best of all, you get your regular hairline back.

No matter which surgical or non-surgical procedure you ultimately choose, you can experience the satisfaction of combing and styling your own natural hair again. You won’t have the desire to hide your thinning hair or bald spots under a hat and will notice a difference in how people perceive you. Our doctors care about your well-being and want to see you enjoy life.
