What is androgenic Alopecia?
Androgenic alopecia is a hair loss condition that affects both men and women. In men, it is called male pattern baldness and in women, it is called female pattern baldness. This hair loss pattern varies in men and women. For men, the hair loss starts with receding hairline from the crown and frontal scalp. For women, the pattern of hair loss differs from men. Women experience hair thinning from the entire scalp.
So what causes androgenic alopecia?
Genetic and family history of baldness is one of the main cause for androgenetic alopecia in men and women. In men, the male sex hormones called androgen are associated with male-pattern hair loss. Each hair has a growth cycle. In male-pattern baldness, this growth cycle begins to weaken and the hair follicle shrinks, producing shorter and finer strands of hair. The person loses hair but no new hair grows.
Genes appear to be a factor in developing androgenic alopecia. A woman can inherit the gene of female pattern baldness from her parents. Androgenetic alopecia tends to be more common as a woman ages and reaches midlife, although it can begin earlier in her 30’s. It often develops after menopause, so hormonal changes may also be a contributing factor. Alopecia areata is an autoimmune hair disorder that results in unpredictable and patchy hair loss. The white blood cells attack hair follicles, causing them to slow down hair production. Certain medications like cancer treatment medicines can cause hair loss as a side effect. However, hair usually regrows once a person has stopped taking the medication.

Body Hair Transplant
Body hair transplant is a hair transplant procedure where the hair is extracted from other body parts to implant hair on the scalp. Insufficient hair on the head leads to other options. In this process, the hair is extracted from the chest, beard or pubic region and planted on the head. The hair is extracted using local anaesthesia using FUE – follicular unit extraction method. These extracted hair follicles are transplanted on bald parts at different timings. This process takes 6 Months – 2 Years. The hair texture, colour, size might defer but in 70% of the cases, the body hair merges well with the scalp hair.
Doctors do not recommend body hair transplant procedures as long as there isn’t an urgent for it. Doctors try to get grafts from the head with donor area on the back or two sides of the head. In case there is no donor area option because of hair thinning and it is urgent and medical conditions support hair transplantation from body hair, then doctors use body hair transplant.
