Hair Loss

Androgenetic alopecia, commonly known as male pattern baldness is the most common form of hair loss affecting both men an women.  Currently there are only two FDA approved medications to treat the condition, and of course surgical intervention. While hair transplant surgery can be an extremely effective and satisfying treatment for many, not all people suffering from hair loss will benefit from the procedure. Only an experienced hair transparent surgeon can help you determine if you are a candidate for hair loss surgery.

The International Alliance of Hair Restoration Surgeons is a consumer organization that selectively screens skilled and ethical hair transplant surgeons. The IAHRS does not offer an open membership policy to doctors practicing hair transplatation, and is the only group that recognizes that all surgeons are not equal in their skill and technique. Its elite membership seeks to represent the best in the discipline, the true leaders in the field of surgical hair restoration.
