Male Pattern Baldness? We Can Help
Is androgenetic alopecia — also known as male-pattern baldness — causing you to lose confidence in the way you look? It might be time to try one of the best, most effective options available for hair restoration.

Male-pattern baldness can be a devastating and difficult problem. We understand the discomfort of premature hair loss and want to provide you with the best and most effective options for hair restoration.

At Dr. Malouf Dermatology, we understand the importance of thick, healthy hair to self-confidence and a youthful appearance. That’s why our providers — Peter Malouf, DO; Amanda Miller, FNP-C; and Haylee Terry, PA-C — offer NeoGraft® to patients who want to restore hair loss as a result of androgenetic alopecia. 

Male-pattern baldness 101

First, it’s important to note the commonality of male-pattern baldness or androgenetic alopecia. According to a 2016 study, this condition affects somewhere between 30 and 50% of men once they reach the age of 50. It should be noted that female-pattern baldness is extremely common as well. 

Male-pattern baldness is usually identified by thinning hair at the crown of the head and/or a receding hairline. Most of the time, the condition can be diagnosed by the type of hair loss that occurs, but blood tests and biopsies might be used to rule out other possible conditions

Those living with male-pattern baldness are not ill, but this condition can be a blow to your confidence. If you notice you’re developing other issues because of your thinning hair, such as anxiety about your appearance or a loss of self-assurance, it might be time to seek help. 

How NeoGraft works

For those who are struggling with significant hair loss, NeoGraft is a fantastic solution for hair restoration. This procedure uses automated FUE, or Follicular Unit Extraction, technology to remove the donor hair follicles from other areas around your scalp. The follicles are then implanted in specifically chosen spots where hair is thinner to create the best effects. 

Why choose NeoGraft 

NeoGraft has been a fantastic solution for many men struggling with androgenetic alopecia. It allows you to see your hair begin to thicken and grow in a natural, healthy way. Before NeoGraft, many men were uncomfortable with hair restoration because of the many side effects. 

Hair restoration used to consist of removing healthy hair in a large swathe, then implanting the individual hair follicles into an incision into your scalp. The treatment was often uncomfortable and required a long recovery period. 

NeoGraft, however, is different. It doesn’t require a long recovery period or large incisions. Dr. Malouf only needs to use a local anesthetic because the procedure is minimally invasive, and hair follicles are removed individually, which helps to avoid damaged follicles. 

Good candidates for NeoGraft 

The best candidates for the NeoGraft technique are those dealing with male- or female-pattern baldness, rather than those suffering from illness or medication-related hair loss. Candidates who do not suffer from blood clotting issues, uncontrolled diabetes, or high blood pressure are also likely to see beneficial results. 

If this describes you — and you want to see a significant increase in hair thickness — NeoGraft may be the best possible solution for your hair loss.
