Losing hair can be a common issue for some as they age, especially men. Male pattern baldness, stress, medical conditions, and genetics can all contribute to hair loss for men. Most notably, hair loss occurs on the head, but some may experience it in other areas.

Many men who suffer from hair loss find that it can make them look older, causing concern with their appearance and self-esteem. Hiding bald spots or balding can become a chore, and increased stress from the hair loss can cause the symptoms to worsen.

Hats and hairpieces are a popular go-to in the past, but these only hide the issue temporarily and cannot be worn in certain situations. Those who want to see an improvement in their natural hair’s appearance can consider options such as supplements, hair products, or cosmetic enhancements. At the Bengtson Center for Aesthetic & Plastic Surgery, men who want to improve or reduce hair loss and balding can seek out our Grand Rapids men's hair restoration treatments. We offer our services to patients throughout the Midwest and near Grand Rapids, Birmingham, Detroit, and Kalamazoo, MI.

What Causes Men's Hair Loss?

According to the Hair Loss Association, by 35, at least two-thirds of American men will report some type of hair loss, and with that number jumping to 85% among men over 50. What causes hair loss, however, can vary among patients. Most notably, hair loss in men is due to androgenetic alopecia or common male pattern baldness (MPB).

Men with these conditions can usually see hair loss beginning early in life, with MPB often contributing to balding by 21 years old. Medical conditions like thyroid disease, anemia, protein deficiency, secondary syphilis, and chemotherapy can also cause patients to lose hair, so it is vital to narrow down the cause of your hair loss. Additionally, some instances of MPB may respond to medications or treatments that cease, reduce, or even reverse hair loss in men. However, there is no cure for MPB, and this may not be the case for everyone. If reversing or reducing hair loss is not an option, patients can turn to cosmetic solutions like men’s hair grafting at the Bengtson Center in Grand Rapids.

Can Men's Hair Loss Be Reversed?

Depending on the cause of hair loss, you might be able to reverse it or naturally grow back once our Grand Rapids hair loss treatment is administered or certain factors change. This is generally true in cases where hair loss is due to external factors or conditions like telogen effluvium, caused by extreme stress or trauma.

How Can I Benefit from Cosmetic Hair Loss Treatments for Men?

While there may be no cure for common conditions like male pattern baldness, that does not mean patients cannot invest in treatment options that deliver incredible results.

Men’s Hair loss treatments can not only reduce the appearance of balding or receding hairlines, but procedures like hair grafting can also help patients achieve a full head of hair, even if they have significant hair loss. We offer NeoGraft to men who want to address hair loss, which has the benefit of being safe, effective, and has quick application time. Plus, the results look natural and blend in beautifully with any existing hair.

What Treatments are Available for Men's Hair Loss?

Hair loss is a common issue affecting men of all ages, starting as early as their teenage years in some. The treatment option that works best for you will depend on different factors. Long gone are the days where a wig, plugs, or hairpieces are necessary, however.

At the Bengtson Center in Grand Rapids men’s hair loss treatments are provided at a high-quality that delivers natural-looking results. Dr. Brad Bengtson, Dr. David Alfonso, and their team understand just how important having a full head of hair can be, so we offer NeoGraft hair restoration treatments. Our hair restoration procedures are specially crafted for male patients who are suffering from hair loss.

NeoGraft uses a follicular unit extraction (FUE) to collect healthy, hair-growing follicles from the scalp. This allows your surgeon to access thousands of applicable follicles that can be grafted into the areas experiencing balding and hair loss. This procedure requires meticulous precision, so it should only be performed by caring, experienced professionals. NeoGraft sessions are minimally-invasive, with most patients saying any pain is manageable. Procedures are FDA-approved, and sessions can be completed in one day.

Who Can Get Hair Loss Treatments?

Hair loss treatments Grand Rapids area patients of ours can benefit from, like NeoGraft, are available to those in good health and have some hair on their head. The best candidates are men and women with mild to moderate hair loss and balding. We can customize the procedure and tailor it to suit our patients individually, especially with male and female patients who may have vastly different results in mind.
