Two issues play a key role in almost all hair loss:
In all patients, male and female, genetics are definitely involved. Forget about the old myth of “If your mother’s father is bald…” We now know that these genes are inherited from both sides of your family. If your grandfathers, your father, your uncles, your cousins and your brothers are all suffering from hair loss, chances are it’s going to affect you as well. Similarly for women, if the females on either or both sides of the family have thinning hair, they can definitely be at risk for hair loss.
Male Hair Loss
Male Pattern Baldness (MPB) is very well understood. It is a steady progression that starts in most cases at the hair line and at the top of the head (known as “the crown”). These areas of loss expand further and further, and in the later stages of Hair Loss those areas of initial thinning become more severe, and then eventually merge to give the typical appearance of baldness.
Hormones also play a major role in Male Pattern Baldness. In men, Testosterone in the blood gets converted in the body to a chemical known as 5-Dihydrotestosterone (5-DHT for short), which signals certain hair follicles and their associated hair shafts to start shrinking and eventually wither away. Once the hair follicle has died, no medical treatment will allow it to grow back.
The good news is that Microfollicular Hair Transplant Surgery can correct Hair Loss in both of these situations.
There are other medical conditions that can cause Hair Loss, such as alopecia areata, Lupus, and psoriasis, to name a few. Radiation Treatments, burns and other surgeries on the scalp can also lead to damage and hair loss.
Eyebrow and Beard Reconstruction
Patients often will present with thinning eyebrows or thin facial hair growth which they are looking to thicken.
Eyebrow Hair Loss can occur from injuries, scars, burns at any time in life or sometimes simply as a trait inherited from your family. Females especially will suffer from loss of eyebrow hair later in life.
Beard and Moustache Hair Loss can occur in male patients for the same reasons. Some patients simply were not born with facial hair growth in the areas required for a full beard, moustache, or goatee. Alopecia areata , other skin conditions, injuries and burns can also cause patches of loss within the beard causing an uneven and undesirable appearance.
Hair Transplant Microsurgery can be utilized to restore the normal thick and full appearance of the eyebrow or the beard. The design and placement of the hairs is different than that on the scalp, but the results remain stunningly natural and appealing.

How is Hair Transplant Microsurgery Performed?
The most important principle to realize is that the hair that grows in the back of the scalp (known as the occipital area), have different genetic programming than those on the top of the head. They are not destined to thin or fall out, and are resistant to the effects of hormones.
During your hair transplant microsurgery, hair will be transplanted from one area of the scalp that has good hair density to another area of thinning hair or no hair at all. By carefully microscopically dissecting those follicles into single hairs or groups of two or three hairs, Dr. Gujrati makes certain that the natural pattern of growth on the scalp is preserved. There is a scientific and highly artistic method to the design and placement of these new Microfollicular Grafts . This approach ensures that you will have a completely natural pattern of hair growth that is virtually undetectable to others. Most importantly, these hairs will last you a lifetime. And to top it all off, your Hair Transplant Microsurgery can be done safely and comfortably here in the operating suites at Réviance® without any need for general anesthesia.
Am I a Good Candidate for Hair Transplant Microsurgery?
Hair transplant microsurgery is perfect for anyone suffering with hair loss. If someone in your family has experienced severe hair loss, there is a good chance you will inherit the same condition. Hormones are also another indicator of hair loss – specifically testosterone. As we pass through adolescence and young adulthood, 5-DHT (the by-product of the testosterone system in males) becomes less important for body development and starts to cause hair loss on your scalp and grow it elsewhere, such as on your back.
Men are not the only ones who suffer with hair loss, however. Thinning hair can be even more devastating for a woman, and the genetic predisposition is generally passed down from family members.
There are other skin conditions (alopecia areata, Lupus, and psoriasis) and various medical conditions that can also cause hair loss. Some of these may limit the results of Hair Transplant Microsurgery, but Dr. Gujrati can answer all of those concerns during a private, personalized, and thorough consultation at the Réviance® Plastic Surgery & Aesthetic Center in San Jose.
What are the Typical Results of Hair Transplant Microsurgery?
Hair transplant microsurgery boasts some of the most natural-looking results imaginable. In fact, your family, friends and even hair stylists will have a hard time telling the new hair apart from non-transplanted hair. And best of all, it is your own, real hair. It grows, gets cut, styled, colored and treated just like the hair you had before. As you’ll see in our hair transplant microsurgery before and after pictures, you can expect to have a thicker and fuller head of hair.
