About Hair Loss

The average scalp contains 100,000 hairs and most people shed 50 to 100 a day. This negligible amount of hair loss produces no noticeable difference, but an estimated 35 million men and 21 million women in the United States lose a significant number of hairs every day, producing thin or bald spots, uneven hairlines, and similar issues.

If you are experiencing significant hair loss, please contact Restora Austin Plastic Surgery Centre or call 512-371-8817 today to schedule a hair restoration consultation with one of our board-certified Austin plastic surgeons.

Causes of Hair Loss

A gradual thinning of the hair is common with age. 40 percent of men begin to notice some amount of thinning before the age of 35 and 80 percent of women will have noticeable hair loss by the age of 60.

In addition to age, hair loss can be caused by factors such as:

  • Genetics

  • Hormonal changes

  • Medications

  • Medical conditions

During your Austin hair loss restoration consultation, one of our board-certified plastic surgeons will discuss the cause of your hair loss and inform you of all potential solutions.

Treating Hair Loss

In some cases, hair loss can be treated by discontinuing medications or seeking medical help for disorders such as thyroid problems. However, when hair loss is caused by genetics or aging, a number of hair restoration options exist.

Austin hair loss restoration offered by our surgeons includes surgical options such as NeoGraft as well as nonsurgical options. What option is right for you will be dependent on factors unique to your body and is best determined by one of our experienced hair loss restoration surgeons.
