Why is Hair Transplantation the Best Hair Loss Solution?


Bosley hair transplantation is the permanent solution to hair loss.

The primary cause of thinning hair for men is DHT, which can also cause thinning hair for women.  In men, DHT (dihydrotestosterone), causes hair to thin over time eventually to the point of falling out and resulting in male-pattern baldness.

Male-pattern baldness is illustrated by the Norwood Scale classes 2-7.

DHT in women is counteracted by estrogen.  However, thinning hair can result at the time of menopause when estrogen levels drop and no longer counter the effects of estrogen.

Female-pattern baldness is illustrated by the Ludwig Scale Classes 1-3.

In men, the hair on the sides and back of the head is resistant DHT.  This is why many men who are losing their hair often retain hair in these areas.  Hair transplantation uses hair and follicles from these DHT resistant areas “donor area”. When transplanted the hair and follicles retain this resistance and essentially will continue to grow forever where genetically sensitive hair failed.

The result of Bosley permanent hair restoration combined with the skill and artistry of Bosley physicians is a completely natural look and restored hairline that is virtually undetectable.

The typical Bosley hair transplant surgery is complete in a day or less.  Given local anesthesia is used during the hair restoration procedure, Bosley patients will often take the opportunity to watch a movie, read, eat or even sleep.
