If you’ve been preparing for a hair transplant in New Jersey, gathering research and asking questions, you may find this list of facts useful. The Nova Medical Hair Transplant Clinic welcomes you to schedule your consultation and have your questions answered by the experts who understand hair loss the best.
A person’s genetic makeup is the most common reason for pattern hair loss. For men and women, androgenic alopecia describes the hereditary pattern hair thinning and balding that 2/3 of men and ½ of women will experience in their lifetime.
Hereditary pattern baldness isn’t simply caused by hairs falling out, but by normal, strong hairs being replaced with thinner, finer hairs over time and the follicles shrinking.
You could lose over half the hairs on your scalp before it becomes evident to anyone else.
Men experience pattern baldness at a younger age and more often than women, some noting the recession of hair as young as 20.
Up to 40% of women report losing hair density by the time they reach menopause.
Genetic, male pattern baldness which causes people to seek hair transplants in New Jersey, is inherited through either side of the family.
Despite what many people think, pattern hair loss is not caused by wearing hats, shampooing too often or decreased scalp blood flow. Shampooing, clogged pores, or reduced blood flow to the scalp. Your follicles receive oxygen from their blood supply, not the air, so covering them up won’t harm them. It’s also reasonable to lose around 150 hairs per day, which you may see in the drain after a shower, but that doesn’t mean hair washing is to blame.
Pulling on the hair consistently can lead to hair loss, but this is a condition known as traction alopecia. Hair transplant in New Jersey is often appropriate for these patients as long as they have a healthy follicle donor supply. Meet with a specialist to determine if your traction alopecia is temporary or permanent.
