Losing hair (due to injury, negligence, disease, genetic inspiration or advancing years) can be a stressful highly emotional experience, appearance, self-confidence and enjoyment of life can be adversely affected in either gender.
However the loss of a woman’s ‘crowning glory’ although ‘potentially devastating’ is not always permanent – many enjoy a full recovery.
Men who lose hair should be wary of ‘magic cures’ offered by commercial entities. The characteristic Male Pattern Alopecia is androgen related – which may or may not be managed by certain POM drugs for which the safety of long term usage has yet to be realised (this may take years). The safety of surgical intervention (transplantation) is proven and currently offers the best compromise available to certain individuals with limited areas of baldness. It should essentially be performed by an efficient experienced ethical surgical team.
Warning: the procedure is not appropriate for every man – Solicitors are experiencing an increase in men looking to sue for poor aesthetic results and where the advancing baldness rapidly exhausts their yield of harvestable follicles, thereby significantly restricting the success they had envisaged (or were led to expect). There is a growing number of disillusioned men who find themselves visually worse off by the procedures received for which they were unsuited.
Professor Stevens was a pioneer of the single hair follicle transplantation technique 40 + years ago. He is retired from active surgery but is pleased to discuss and advise men / and women contemplating this surgical intervention, and in suitable cases recommend reputable surgeons known to him.
We offer the opportunity of discussing your hair problems and any genuine treatments currently available (their advantages and more especially any disadvantages).
