HSC Investigates Causes of Hair Loss in Men

What are the causes of hair loss in men?

In short, the most common cause of baldness in men is a genetic predisposition called androgenetic alopecia. It is a condition in which the affected follicles are sensitive to a hormone called dihydrotestosterone type II. There are other causes of hair loss in men:

  • Genetic
  • Male Hormones
  • medical conditions
  • injuries

Sometimes hair loss can be caused by underlying medical conditions, so it’s important for men to be evaluated by a doctor. If clinically relevant, the following processes should be considered:

  • Anemia
  • thyroid disease
  • Connective Tissue Disease
  • Hormonal Imbalances
  • vitamin deficiencies
  • emotional stress
  • Autoimmune Skin Diseases (scarring alopecias)

It’s also important to review the use of medications that can cause hair loss, such as beta-blockers, vitamin A, thyroid medications, coumadin, and prednisone. The following lab tests are generally helpful if underlying problems are suspected: CBC, Chem Screen, ANA, T4, TSH, Androstenedione, DHEASulfate, Total, and Free Testosterone.

Why are some men not candidates for hair transplant surgery?

Hair transplantation involves the movement of hair from a denser and fuller area (usually the back and sides of the scalp) to the area of ​​hair loss on the front, top or top. Men who do not have enough hair in the transplantation area are not strong candidates for transplantation. Harris will assess the donor’s “strength” through a method called “densitometry” to assess your candidacy. You may also want to understand where you stand on the Norwood Scale.

As with all surgical procedures, if you’re considering hair restoration, it’s important to balance the potential benefit with the potential risks when making the decision to continue treatment. Schedule a consultation today.
