Male Pattern Baldness And Hair Restoration – Part 1

In the United States, medical statistics indicate that roughly 35 million men are affected by androgenetic alopecia, which is the medical term for male pattern baldness. Male pattern baldness is caused by both chemical and genetic components. If a man has the presence of both the gene for baldness and the presence of androgens, mail pattern baldness will occur, but the unknown variable is precisely when male pattern baldness will begin to occur. The levels of androgens need not vary from what is considered “normal” for the balding to begin. It’s possible for hair loss to begin at any point following puberty when androgens are increasing, and the first area where the hairline recedes is around the temporal areas. Another unknown is what pattern the hair loss will follow once it begins. The general patterns are illustrated in the Norwood-Hamilton Scale of Male Pattern Baldness. Male pattern baldness is an aesthetic issue that causes men to spend large sums of money to counteract, whether through topical treatments or toupees. Historically, not all approaches have been efficacious for patients. What may surprise men seeking a solution is that plastic and aesthetic surgeons are on the frontline for treating and minimizing male pattern baldness. In Houston, Michael Eisemann, M.D. of the Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center actively and successful works with male patients to either slow or stop the progression of hair loss, as well as to improve hair growth. Over the next several days, Dr. Eisemann’s blog will discuss various techniques to counteract this problem so many men experience.

Practice Policy Update Regarding COVID-19

Dr. Michael Eisemann, Dr. Bradley Eisemann, and the entire staff at Eisemann Plastic Surgery are committed to the health and safety of all of our patients and ourselves.

We are thankful to be connected to Houston Methodist Hospital, one of the most respected hospitals in the country. Because of this, our screening policy is aided by the hospital's official policies and checkpoint screening measures completed prior to entering our building. These measures allow us to do everything we can, at this point in time, to minimize the chance that we expose ourselves or our patients to someone who has been sick or contagious with the virus.

We are set up to perform new consults and patient follow-ups via ZOOM video conferencing.

As of Monday, March 23rd, our office is open. We are open and seeing select patients. If you are currently on the schedule, please call our office if you have any concerns about your own health.

While all major hospitals have stopped elective surgery at this time, we are very selectively performing indicated operative procedures in our procedure room and in our AAAASF certified operating room under local and IV sedation.

As always, both Dr. Michael Eisemann and Dr. Bradley Eisemann are available by phone and email to answer any questions you may have.
