Although the true cause is currently unknown, the causes for baldness have been speculated to be mostly genetically-related as well as stress-related. The main type of hair loss- male pattern baldness, or as it is technically known, androgenic alopecia (AGA)- is widely theorized to be caused by genetic factors; although this should not be considered statistical proof, it has been shown that men whose fathers experiences some level of hair loss have a 2.5 greater chance of experiencing hair loss themselves when compared to men whose fathers did not experience any level of hair loss.
Even though it has not yet been proven, it has been virtually taken as fact that the male sex hormone, androgen, plays a factor in male pattern baldness to some degree. In a nutshell, hormones regulate the activity of various organs and tissues of the body. As males get older, the levels of androgen in their bodies drop, theoretically causing their hair follicles to gradually become smaller and have shorter hair cycles, leading to strands of hair that are smaller and narrower than before, giving the visual appearance of hair loss.
To battle hair loss, hair restoration procedures have been designed to not only restore, but encourage the regrowth of hair from parts of the body such as (receding) hairlines, eyebrows, the vertex and crown areas, the goatee, the sideburns, and the sections of the face where beards and facial hair grow on males.

One method available to restore hair is hair transplant surgery. This method requires the hair transplant San Francisco performing your procedure to extract a group of 1 to 4 hairs (known as follicular units) from a “donor” area on the patient’s body and then surgically transplanting it on the “recipient” area of the patient’s body.
