In the UK it’s estimated that two thirds of men will experience balding in their lives. Balding or a receding hairline can affect people at any age, however for men in their early twenties it can be more concerning. Male pattern baldness results from hormonal changes and a genetic predisposition, following a pattern of receding hairline or hair thinning on the crown. Younger men worried about the possible impacts of this condition on their appearance, self-esteem and prospects, are looking to FUE hair transplants as a solution. 
If you’re considering opting for a hair transplant, it’s vitally important that you spend some time doing your homework in order to identify a suitable clinic. Be sure to choose a hair transplant surgeon who has sufficient experience in carrying out the procedure, and ask to see some before and after photographs of previous patients. Find out if the surgeon is up to date with the latest advances in technology and procedures to ensure that you will receive the best form of care during your treatment. 
Hair loss is very common in both men and women within the UK, but there are alternative solutions to disguise or resolve the hair loss. Whilst some sufferers are content to opt for temporary hair replacement routes such as wigs and hair pieces, others may wish to choose a longer term solution which will produce a very natural result. Hair transplants in the UK are on the rise, possibly thanks to a rise in celebrities undergoing very successful transplants. Wayne Rooney, James Nesbit and Jude Law are all said to have gone under the knife in the fight against hair loss, but the service isn’t only available to the rich and famous, it’s also becoming increasingly common amongst the general public. 
PRP, or Platelet Rich Plasma is a treatment method that uses your own blood to help promote hair growth and fight against hair loss. Whether genetic, a result of stress, medical conditions or even due to bad hair care, hair loss is a big concern amongst many men and women. Luckily, with techniques such as PRP, it is getting much easier to fight against hair loss. 
Hair loss or thinning is a common concern as we age, as our hair follicles can deteriorate and slow the growth of the hair. We normally shed 50 to 100 hairs a day, however hair is constantly growing so this usually isn’t obviously visible. However, noticeable hair loss occurs when the cycle of hair growth is disrupted or if hair follicles are damaged and replaced with scar tissue. 
Hair loss is a common medical condition, which can affect both men and women at any age. The NHS has stated that over 8 million women in the UK suffer from alopecia (the general medical term for hair loss), and male pattern baldness is one of the most common types of hair loss, which usually affects those who are near the age of 50.* 
Hair transplants are one of the treatments available to overcome hair loss. This type of treatment is commonly used in cases of partial hair loss as follicles need to be transplanted from an area of dense hair growth to the area of thinning hair. There are two principal methods of hair transplant – Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT) and Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) but which one is best for you?
