About 50% of men will experience some hair loss. This phenomenon usually occurs around 50 years, but it can also occur around 20 or 30 years, or even during adolescence.
Androgenic alopecia is the most frequent cause of hair loss, and causes hair loss at the crown and parietal areas. However this may vary from person to person and the pattern of baldness is not the same for all men. Androgenic alopecia is a hereditary condition that can not be prevented.
Other causes of hair loss include stress, diseases or medications such as chemotherapy. Supplements can delay hair loss a bit, but once the hair has been lost, transplantation is the only option.

One of the main and most effective ways to fight hair loss is the realization of a hair transplant with the FUE technique (Follicular Unit Extraction). This is the technique used for example in the case of footballer Wayne Rooney.
The FUE technique removes healthy follicles from the hairy areas of the scalp and grafts them in the areas affected by alopecia. The new hair will give you a more permanent and totally natural looking result. The procedure takes into account all the details such as the direction of hair growth. The transplant itself is done in a similar way to the other techniques.
The main difference is that it is less painful and provides more natural results. The experts in charge of the procedure seek to make it as comfortable as possible, with minimal trauma to the scalp. The intervened areas begin to recover in about four days depending on the type of skin, but activities such as sports should wait at least a week.
The procedure is ambulatory so you will leave the clinic that same day.

You will usually receive a personalized treatment plan and you will be given an idea of the results you can expect, in this way you will have realistic expectations about the results of the intervention. All this at no cost.
