Reasons for hair loss in men: male pattern hair loss
Many Indian patients wonder what the reasons for hair loss in men are. Male pattern hair loss is the most common form of hair loss in men. Up to 70% of men in India and worldwide will be affected by male pattern baldness at some point in their lives. Although male pattern hair loss is genetic, it is not always predictable: even if it runs in a patient’s family, it is not always possible to know at what age hair loss will begin, or how an individual’s hair growth patterns will be affected. However, most people find that their hair loss increases as they get older.
The most effective male pattern baldness treatment is surgery, but other options are available as well, including hair restoration medication and low-level laser therapy. In particular, young men suffering from hair loss are advised to avoid hair restoration surgery until their hair loss pattern and progression is fully revealed.
