Hair loss is a common issue among both men and women, but it can be particularly distressing for men. For many men, losing their hair can be a blow to their self-esteem and confidence, especially if it occurs at a young age. Hair loss can also be a symptom of an underlying medical condition, so it’s important to understand the causes and available treatments. Hair loss in men, also known as male pattern baldness, is a common condition that affects approximately 50% of men by the age of 50. It is caused by a combination of genetic and hormonal factors and can lead to a receding hairline, thinning hair, and baldness.
How to Prevent Hair Fall? Hair Loss Treatments
At Divine Cosmetic Surgery clinic, we offer both surgical and non-surgical ways to deal with hair loss that men might face.
Non-Surgical Hair Loss Treatments for Men :
When it comes to treating hair loss, there are several non-surgical options available that can help to promote hair growth and prevent further hair loss. One of the most popular non-surgical hair loss treatments for men is minoxidil.
Minoxidil is a medication that is applied directly to the scalp. It works by increasing blood flow to the hair follicles, which can help to stimulate hair growth and prevent further hair loss. Minoxidil is available over-the-counter in both 2% and 5% concentrations, and is generally considered safe and effective for most men.
To use minoxidil, simply apply it to the scalp twice a day, being sure to cover the affected area thoroughly. It’s important to note that minoxidil may take several months to produce noticeable results, and continued use is required to maintain hair growth.
Another popular non-surgical male hair loss treatment is finasteride, which is an oral medication that works by blocking the production of dihydrotestosterone (DHT). DHT is a hormone that can cause hair follicles to shrink and eventually stop producing hair, leading to hair loss. Finasteride is available in a 1mg dose and is taken once a day. It is typically prescribed by a doctor or healthcare professional, and may take several months to produce noticeable results.
Studies have shown that finasteride can be an effective treatment for male pattern baldness, with up to 80% of men experiencing some degree of hair regrowth. While finasteride can be an effective treatment for hair loss in men, it’s important to talk to your doctor or a qualified healthcare professional before starting treatment. They can help you determine if finasteride is the right choice for you based on your individual needs and medical history.

- Platelet-rich plasma (PRP)
Another non-surgical hair loss treatment option for men is platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy. PRP is a solution of concentrated platelets and growth factors that is derived from the patient’s own blood.
During a PRP treatment session, a small amount of the patient’s blood is drawn and processed in a centrifuge to isolate the platelet-rich plasma. The PRP is then injected directly into the scalp, where it can help to stimulate hair growth and improve the overall health of the hair follicles. PRP therapy is generally considered safe and well-tolerated, as the patient’s own blood is used in the procedure. However, as with any medical procedure, there is a risk of side effects such as pain, swelling, and infection.
Overall, PRP therapy may be an effective non-surgical hair loss treatment option for some men. It’s important to talk to your doctor or a qualified healthcare professional to determine if PRP therapy is the right choice for you based on your individual needs and medical history.
- Growth Factor Concentrate Treatment (GFC)
Growth factor concentrate treatment is a non-surgical hair loss treatment that uses proteins called growth factors to promote hair growth. The treatment involves using a patient’s own blood to extract the growth factors and then injecting the solution directly into the scalp.
Growth factor treatment has been shown to be effective in stimulating hair growth in both men and women. Studies have demonstrated significant improvements in hair density and thickness after treatment, with minimal side effects reported.
As the treatment utilizes a patient’s own blood, it is considered a safe and well-tolerated option for hair loss treatment. However, like any medical procedure, there is always a risk of side effects such as swelling, pain, and infection.
Apart from non-surgical hair treatments, we offer surgical procedures that provide excellent results when it comes to hair growth.

Surgical Hair Loss Treatments for Men :
The non-surgical hair loss treatments for men that are effective for hair loss are hair transplants. Here are the different types of hair transplants provided by Divine Cosmetic Surgery clinic –
- Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)
Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) is a minimally invasive surgical hair loss treatment option that involves the removal of individual hair follicles from the scalp and transplanting them to areas of thinning or baldness. During an FUE procedure, hair follicles are removed from the scalp using a small, circular punch tool. The extracted follicles are then transplanted to the areas of the scalp that require additional hair growth.
FUE is considered a safe and effective surgical hair loss treatment option for men, with a high success rate and minimal scarring or downtime. Patients typically experience natural-looking hair growth after the procedure. While FUE is generally well-tolerated, it is important to note that it is a surgical procedure and carries the risks and potential side effects associated with any surgery. These may include bleeding, infection, scarring, and discomfort.
- Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT)
Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) is a surgical hair loss treatment option that involves removing a strip of scalp from the back of the head, separating individual hair follicles from the strip, and transplanting them to areas of the scalp that require additional hair growth. During an FUT procedure, a strip of scalp is removed from the back of the head and the area is sutured closed. The strip is then divided into individual follicular units, which are transplanted to the areas of the scalp that require additional hair growth.
FUT is an effective surgical hair loss treatment option for men, with a high success rate and natural-looking hair growth results. However, it is a more invasive procedure compared to FUE and may result in a linear scar at the donor site.
- Combination Hair Transplant
Combination hair transplant is a surgical hair loss treatment option that involves a combination of FUE and FUT techniques to achieve the best results for hair restoration. This approach is often recommended for patients who require a larger number of hair follicles to be transplanted. During a combination hair transplant, the surgeon may use FUE to extract hair follicles from the scalp’s back and sides and FUT to extract a strip of scalp from the same area. This allows for a higher number of hair follicles to be transplanted to the areas of the scalp that require additional hair growth.
The combination hair transplant procedure provides the advantages of both FUE and FUT techniques. FUE results in minimal scarring and downtime, while FUT allows for a greater number of hair follicles to be transplanted.
- Bio-Fibre Hair Transplant
Bio-Fiber hair transplant is a surgical hair loss treatment option that involves implanting artificial hair fibers made of biocompatible materials into the scalp to create a natural-looking hairline. This procedure is often recommended for patients who have limited donor hair follicles or those who are not good candidates for other hair transplant methods.
During a bio-fiber hair transplant, the surgeon inserts individual hair fibers into the scalp using a specialized tool. These fibers are made of biocompatible materials that are safe for human use, such as polymers or keratin.
Bio-Fiber hair transplant is a minimally invasive procedure that does not require the removal of any scalp tissue or hair follicles, resulting in minimal scarring and downtime. The implanted fibers can create a natural-looking hairline that matches the patient’s hair color and texture.
In conclusion, hair loss is a common issue faced by many men, and it can have a significant impact on their self-esteem and quality of life. Fortunately, there are several effective hair loss treatments available that can help men restore their hair and confidence. Non-surgical treatments such as minoxidil, finasteride, PRP, and GFC can be effective in slowing or stopping hair loss, while surgical procedures such as FUE, FUT, combination, and bio-fiber hair transplantation can provide a more permanent solution. Each treatment has its pros and cons, and the best option for each individual will depend on various factors, including the extent and cause of their hair loss, their budget, and their personal preferences. Ultimately, consulting with a hair loss specialist and doing research on the available options can help men make an informed decision and achieve the results they desire.
