Male hair loss
Male hair loss is extremely common with almost 50% of men experiencing some degree of hair loss by the age of 50. At The Treatment Rooms, we understand your hair is crucial to your appearance and hair loss is a common source of worry. Whether it be medical treatment or hair restoration surgery, we place the utmost importance in helping you attain your desired look.
We understand that hair loss (also known as alopecia) affects people differently. There are various medical and lifestyle causes of hair loss. In men, the most common cause is testosterone and its effect on your hair (also known as androgenic alopecia or male pattern baldness).

You may be experiencing one or multiple of forms of hair loss. The Norwood Scale shows what stage of hair loss you have and how male pattern baldness can progress.
Male hair loss treatment- what are your options?
If you are worried about your hair loss we advise you to see a hair loss specialist like our surgeons at The Treatment Rooms. You will benefit initially from getting a diagnosis as to why you are suffering hair loss. Secondly, you will be advised on the treatment options available to you. Broadly the treatment options can be separated into 2 cateogries:
- Medical Treatments (e.g. Finasteride and Minoxdil)- for more information about these treatments in our clinic click here
- Hair Restoration Surgery
Hair restoration surgery (Hair Transplantation)
Your hair loss commonly occurs due to the effect of DHT on the hair follicle. However, DHT has less effect on the hair follicles at the back and sides of your head. These hairs on the side and back are therefore resistant to the balding process. Hairs that are transplanted from the back or side to the top of your head continue to show resistance to DHT. This makes your transplanted hair a long-term solution for covering areas of existing hair loss.
There are two main surgical procedures used to perform a hair transplant- Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) or Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT). At The Treatment Rooms, we provide Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) as our main hair restoration surgery technique and our surgeons will talk you through both types of surgery during your consultation.
Our clinic provides hair restoration surgery for the following:
- Scalp hair transplants
- Beard transplants
- Eyebrow transplants
At The Treatment Rooms, we take great care to learn how your hair loss is affecting you and explore how it is likely to progress over time. On this basis, we establish tailored treatment plans considering the long-term goals for your hair. Should hair restoration surgery be an option for you, we will ensure you have all the details required to make an informed decision.
