What is the surgery for hair loss?
Hair transplantation is the main surgery for hair loss, which involves removing a narrow strip of hair-bearing scalp from the back of the head and using it to fill an area with thin or no hair. Most hair transplants are performed in the doctor's office under local anesthesia. To transplant hair, the surgeon first cleans the scalp, then injects an anesthetic to numb the area where a 3- to 4-inch strip of scalp will be removed. After removing the strip of scalp with a scalpel, the surgeon sets it aside and sews the scalp closed. This area is immediately hidden by the hair around it.

It's worth checking with your doctor in case there's an underlying cause for your hair loss. Some medications have hair loss as a side-effect. Some curable conditions cause ha…ir loss. . You don't give a lot of information about your condition, but basically there are two 'official' medications for hair loss, approved by the FDA for efficacy and safety: Minoxidil and (for men only) Propecia. The FDA have also approved a laser comb. So, those would be the first things to try, but always as part of a treatment programme that includes monitoring, both to make sure it's working and to check for and mitigate any side effects. A proper hair clinic may use different dosages and booster products to make the programme more effective.. So long as you're not 'bald', these treatments can stop hair loss and often promote regrowth. . If you buy Propecia online you run all sorts of risks: it might not have the dosage you think you're buying (if it has any of the drug at all), there may be contamination and poor product quality. Money spent on counterfeit drugs funds criminality. See the related links for the full story. . If you're not close to London, The Belgravia Centre does provide an online hair loss diagnosis and treatment service, again, see the related links.

Thiscondition is mostly acquired genetically, but environmental factorsalso play a crucial role. If you are a male, then you are mostlikely to be suffering from this condition. In addition to Androgenic alopecia, Female Pattern Hair Loss and AlopeciaAreata also causes hair fall. Alopecia Areata is a rare andtemporary condition that causes patchy hair loss. The FemalePattern Hair Loss though doesn't causes much hair loss, can lead tosubstantial thinning of hairs in females. In addition, like malepattern baldness, it is also known to be related to genes.

Treatments: There are two treatments available for hair fall: herbal and pharmabased. The herbal Treatments Herbal tonics and massage oil are used for this purpose. They workby increasing nutrition to the hair follicles thus promoting hairregrowth.

Finasteride basically treatsandrogenic alopecia at the hormonal level by preventing or limitingthe production level of dihydrotestosterone, the hormone thatshrinks the hair follicles through a process calledminiaturization, resulting in follicle death and hair loss.
