What Causes Hair Loss?
Male pattern baldness is caused by DHT (dihydrotestosterone). All people have DHT but only some will suffer from hair loss, because of a genetic predisposition for hair follicles with an overabundance of
androgen receptors to which DHT attaches. Over time, DHT causes a gradual miniaturization and finally the death
of these susceptible hair follicles. This action is largely inherited. Although hair loss drugs may slow or halt hair loss, they are really only effective at regrowing hair in the crown.
Hair loss in women does not have as clear a cause as male pattern baldness. Women with hair loss often suffer from diffuse thinning all over the scalp rather than in a distinct pattern. This hair thinning is
sometimes temporary and can be caused by a variety of factors tied to the actions of hormones, including: thyroid conditions, pregnancy, and menopause. Where illness or underlying hormonal conditions are not the cause, DHT acting on an overabundance
of androgen receptors in hair follicles, also appears to be the culprit in thinning and hair loss in women.
Female hormones are thought to influence the time of onset, severity, and pattern of loss experienced by women.

Hair Transplant Methods
Doctors Hasson and Wong use state-of-the-art equipment and hair transplant techniques, many of which were developed at
Hasson & Wong and adopted by top clinics worldwide. Precision instruments such as custom cut blades with a blade cutter invented by Doctor Hasson, and the Lateral Slit Technique, invented by Doctor Wong, ensure precision unmatched by other hair transplant clinics. Grafts are dissected under high-powered stereoscopic dissecting microscopes before they are ready for transplantation into slits made to match the exact depth and width of follicular unit grafts. These precision instruments and refinements in technique, coupled with the artistry and experience of the doctors, result in hair transplants that closely mimic nature.

Are You a Hair Transplant Candidate?
Are you a good hair transplant candidate? We are often asked this question, and all patients must undergo a hair transplant consultation to ultimately determine their candidacy for hair restoration surgery. In general, though, a good hair transplant candidate has good donor density (a good supply of hair in the donor area), good donor laxity, good ratio of donor supply to recipient demand (i.e. enough grafts to cover the targeted area of hair loss), and realistic expectations.

How Long Does Hair Transplant Surgery Take?
A hair transplant procedure can take anywhere from 8 - 14 hours depending upon the size of the number of grafts and the complexity of the transplant.

How Long Does it Take for Hair Transplants to Grow?
For the average hair transplant patient, grafts will begin growing noticeably between 3 and 4 months post-op. The most significant growth will be seen between 6 and 8 months and growth will continue for up to one year post-op before you see the final results. See the hair transplant growth timeline.
