Utah Hair MD
Fact: Two-thirds of American men age 35 and younger experience male pattern baldness. Hair loss is an extremely personal and emotional loss for many men (and women) some of whom start losing it before they even hit their twenties. Unfortunately we don’t get to opt in or out of the Male Pattern Baldness gene, but thankfully, these days, we do get to choose how we handle it. Today there are more options than ever before available to those wanting to replace those lost hair follicles.
Many patients concerned about hair loss come to see Dr. Thompson of Utah Hair MD to discuss hair replacement surgery. Hair loss typically results from a combination of normal aging, changes in hormones, and/or a family history of baldness. Baldness is not caused by poor circulation to the scalp, vitamin deficiencies, dandruff, or excessive hat wearing, despite some of the myths you may read or hear. Other myths that are not true are that hair loss can be determined by looking at your maternal grandfather or that if you have a full head of hair by age 40, you’ll never lose it. It is true that the earlier the hair loss begins, the more severe the baldness will become.
As a member of the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery, and with fellowship training in hair restoration surgery, Dr. Thompson specializes in helping patients achieve natural fullness and restoration through individualized treatments plans that incorporate the most advanced cutting-edge technology available today. Dr. Thompson is one of few in the state to offer Neograft, a permanent hair solution that involves no scalpel, no sutures, and no linear scar.
