Most cases of male hair loss is caused by hereditary Androgenetic Alopecia, more commonly known as “male pattern baldness”. The high probability of male pattern baldness is genetically inherited from either side of the family and begins to develop after puberty.
Hormone Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) is genetically susceptible men where it causes male pattern baldness to occur. Many myths exist regarding hair loss and baldness but it is most definitely not caused by poor circulation, clogged hair follicles, frequent shampooing, the wearing of hats and helmets or the presence of mites. Yes, good nutrition can positively affect the quality of hair but never the quantity.
There are various causes for hair loss in women. Female pattern hair loss is still being researched, but the hormone influences in hereditary hair loss in females are suspected to being very different from men.
There are some less common causes of hair loss amongst women which are reversible with treatment, include thyroid disease, iron deficiency, high fever, surgery or general anaesthesia, “crash diets”, childbirth and certain medications.
There also exist certain dermatologic scalp disorders that causes temporary or permanent hair loss, such as frontal fibrosing alopecia, lichen planopilaris, and alopecia areata. Here at Hair Transplant Malaysia, our hair doctors can advise patients suffering from dermatological conditions.
The price of a hair transplant will vary greatly depending on how much hair you need to have transplanted.
Still worried about how much a hair transplant costs? Every head of hair is different and every case is unique, but you don’t need to be on a football star’s salary to afford a full head of hair.
At Hair Transplant Malaysia, we look at a number of different factors to determine the cost of a hair transplant. The cost can vary depending on the characteristics of each person and the complexity of the case.
One factor that helps calculate the cost of a hair transplant is the number of grafts that are required.
FUE (follicular unit extraction, or sometimes referred to as follicular unit transplantation) is a type of hair transplant surgery that involves extracting individual hair follicles from a donor part of the body, usually the sides and back of the head.
These individual follicles are then implanted in the areas that are affected. Typically, with the men suffering from male pattern baldness this will be the classic horseshoe area.
Once you have undergone FUE, the results are permanent. While the initial transplanted hair will shed a few weeks after treatment, it will grow back strong and healthy.
FUE works by extracting naturally occurring groups of one to four hairs, and transplanting these to the area of the scalp, typically the area that is balding.
Surgeons will first work to remove groups of between one and four hairs. These groups of hairs are typically extracted from the sides of the head or back of the neck, using a specialised extraction instrument less than 1mm in diameter. These follicles are then transferred to the recipient area of the scalp and implanted using a powerful stereo microscope.
We take great care to implant the hairs at the correct angle to mimic the old hair, just as it would naturally grow.
The difference between FUE and FUT is that during FUT the surgeon removes an entire strip of donor skin from the back of the head and extracts the hair follicles from this strip. However, in FUE, the individual follicles are taken directly from the scalp.
In FUT, the entire strip of the hair is harvested in one go and then dissected into individual follicles later. This leaves a very distinctive and noticeable lateral scar along the back of the head.
During FUE, groups of between one and four hairs are individually extracted from the scalp and transplanted to the new area of the scalp, trying to mimic the pattern of the hair that used to grow there. This leaves little to no noticeable scarring on the scalp.
When it comes to recovery time, there is also a noticeable difference between FUE and FUT. In FUE hair transplants, there is minimal bleeding, and recovery is usually complete within seven days. However, during FUT, as an entire strip of the scalp has been excised, it often takes weeks for the scars to heal over.
