Restore Confidence and a Full Head of Hair
Almost 60 million men and women throughout the United States deal with a common problem each year: hair loss. Dilworth Facial Plastic Surgery’s Dr. Andrea Garcia and Dr. Josh Surowitz have seen hair restoration technology and techniques make great advances in recent years, allowing them to apply their artistry and skill to restore fuller and more natural heads of hair for their patients.
While every hair goes through a progressive life cycle, most hairs—about 80 to 90 percent—are in the growth phase known as anagen for most of the time. Factors that shorten this phase, such as medical conditions and lifestyle choices, cause hairs to grow in shorter and thinner in a process known as miniaturization. If this continues, the hairs can ultimately be permanently lost. Androgenic alopecia (also known as pattern baldness) is a very common disruptor of anagen, with hormones and genetics leading to baldness that tends to progress in specific patterns in both men and women.
