Hair transplant is the latest craze not only for those who have lost their hair due to untimely fall, but even for them who want to alter their hairlines to acquire an attractive look. It is normal to lose up to 100 hairs a day, however, losing more than that can spell trouble. It is then that you require medical intervention and get yourself diagnosed. You have to visit a plastic surgeon (Hair Transplant Surgeon) for diagnosis and treatment. At BOSH we help you regain your confidence and looks that you desire.

Common causes of hair loss:

  • medical Family history: In most cases, hair loss is inherited, which means it's passed down from one or both of your parents. This is called male-pattern or female-pattern hair loss.
  • medical Stress: including physical stress from surgery, illness, or high fever.
  • medical Chemotherapy: which is powerful medicine that destroys cancer cells.
  • medical Damage to your hair from pulling it back too tightly, wearing tight braids or ponytails, or using curling irons or dyes.
  • medical Age: Less hair are grown as one grows older. Hair also gets thinner and tends to break more easily as you age.
  • medical Poor diet, especially not getting enough protein or iron.
  • medical Thyroid diseases such as hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism.
  • medical Alopecia Areata: a form of hair loss produced by the autoimmune destruction of hair follicles in localized areas of skin.
  • medical Ringworm of the scalp, which is common in children.

Symptoms: The symptoms will depend on what kind of hair loss one faces. If the hair are thinning, it happens slowly over time, so one may not notice the hair falling out. If the hair are shedding, then clumps of hair fall out. One may lose hair all over the scalp, which is called general hair loss. Or one may lose hair only in one area, which is called focal hair loss. With inherited hair loss, men usually get bald spots around the forehead or on the top of the head, while women have some thinning all over the scalp, but mostly on the top of the head. Since hair has a lot to do with an individual's appearance, losing it may cause you to have lower self-esteem especially true in women and teens.


Treatment of hair loss depends on the cause. Treatment may help you feel better about how you look for those who have lost their hair to untimely fall but even for them who want to alter their hairlines to improve their appearance.
