Men’s Hair Loss
Treated at The Griffin Center of Hair Restoration and Research in Atlanta, Georgia.
You are not alone. According to the American Hair Loss Association, about 85% of men will experience significant hair thinning by the time they are 50. In fact, some men begin to lose their hair before they even turn 21. In as much as 95% of cases, male hair loss is the result of male pattern baldness, a genetic trait that causes the follicles at the front and crown of the scalp to stop growing hair in a predictable pattern.
However this is certainly not the only form of alopecia. Men’s hair loss can also stem from a variety of other causes ranging from thyroid imbalance to workplace stress. That’s why Dr. Griffin and Dr. Curtis believe it is so important to diagnose every case of alopecia and custom match the treatment to the diagnosis.
Today there are a variety of medical, surgical, and cosmetic options for combating hair loss. You may choose to do nothing, allowing your baldness to progress, and join the more than twenty million other bald American men. Most men adjust to baldness over time, but that isn’t your only option. Most people would rather not go bald and would want to have more hair. Losing a youthful self-image can inhibit self-confidence, but these feelings don’t have to continue with the many natural hair replacement options available today. Although it won’t restore the same thick head of hair you had at age sixteen, hair replacement can help restore your hairline while covering the baldness and bolstering your self-esteem.
At The Griffin Center, we want you to understand all of your options so that you are satisfied with the most natural-looking results possible. Correcting underlying medical problems and/or decreasing stress are important steps to take before your hair replacement procedure begins. Most importantly, you should consult a physician who specializes in diagnosing the cause of your hair loss and can prescribe a treatment plan that will help restore your hair and your self-esteem.
At the Griffin Center, every patient is an individual and every treatment plan unique. It is that attention to detail that makes the difference. Call us today to schedule appointment.
