Male hair loss is so common that one-third of men experience some degree of hair loss by age 35. By age 80, only 15 percent of men have all of their natural hair. However, that doesn’t make dealing with it any easier. When it seems like you lose more hair by the day, it can make you feel discouraged and that you’re aging before your time.

You’re not just imagining things when you complain of reduced social and professional opportunities due to your hair loss. Research has proven that bald men or those with thinning hair do in fact receive fewer job promotions and may not be asked to join as many social opportunities.

While that isn’t fair, it’s the reality for many men in Michigan and across the country. Fortunately, you can do something about it with professional hair restoration services. Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) and Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) are surgical procedures for men with significant balding on top who still have healthy hair on the back of their scalp.

Doctors who offer FUE and FUT use different methods to extract hair follicles from your donor area and then transfer them to your recipient area. Within about six months of either surgery, you start to grow your own natural hair again. Your hairline comes back as well. Even more exciting, your natural hair will continue growing throughout your life.

Many doctors also offer FUE for the restoration of eyebrows and facial hair. If your beard, mustache, or sideburns have areas of thin or patchy hair, get the look you want with FUE. Men who are unable to grow hair in these areas at all can also benefit from a mini FUE procedure.

It’s Time to Explore Your Hair Restoration Options

In 95 percent of cases, the primary reason for hair loss in men is a genetic condition called male pattern baldness. This is what creates the recognizable pattern of baldness on top with hair remaining on the sides and in the back. If you have just started noticing thinning hair due to this inherited trait, a non-surgical hair restoration procedure may be just right for you. The doctors in this directory typically offer Low Level Light Therapy (LLLT), Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), and ACell.

LLLT stimulates the production of new hair follicles when you wear a specialized hat that sends light energy to your scalp. This is a simple outpatient procedure you complete several times a week. PRP uses the protein and growth factors naturally present in your blood platelets for hair follicle stimulation. Your doctor obtains PRP after taking a small blood sample from you, separating the platelets in a centrifuge, and re-injecting them into your scalp. ACell works at the cellular level to repair and replace damaged hair follicles so they once again produce new hairs.

Hair Transplant and Hair Restoration Options for Men

Hair loss is a personal matter. No one has the right to tell you to just accept it or that you’re making too big of a deal out of it. Some men are fine with going bald while others are not. If you don’t feel comfortable with the idea, you can do something about it. After reading more about the surgical and non-surgical procedures available, contact a local provider to request an initial consultation. He or she will answer all of your questions as the two of you together decide on the method of hair restoration that will best meet your needs.
