Hair Loss : Galeatomy: prevents baldness
If you notice that your hair is thinning or feels lank it is better to take action straight away.
Prevention is the message! Prevention is better than cure.
A galeatomy, a procedure performed under local anaesthetic :
- Prevents further hair loss.
- Stimulates new hair growth.
- Makes your hair healthy again.
Hairloss - Baldness: the causesHair roots constantly form new hairs, therefore healthy hair growth requires high doses of vitamin and minerals. Certain shortages in these important minerals, vitamins and enzymes can result in hair loss, split ends, dull and dry hair which is hard to brush.
Stress and medication can also cause hair loss. In some people hair loss and renewal is cyclical with periods of more intense hair loss. This form of “cyclical” hair loss can be compared with the seasonal moulting which occurs in other mammals and is usually no cause for concern.
Hair loss- in men and women
In the vast majority of men suffering from hair loss the villain bears the latin name alopecia androgenetica. This hereditary form of hair loss is also called 'classic male baldness'. In women the most common cause of hair loss is hereditary.
The condition is still being investigated. It is possible that in women the influence of hormones play a different role than in men. Less common causes of hair loss are thyroid gland conditions, insufficient iron, insufficient vitamins and minerals, high temperatures, an operation or a general anaesthetic, so-called 'crash diets', childbirth, and some forms of medication. If hair loss is not the result of any of these non-hereditary causes then the problem can usually be treated.
There are also certain scalp conditions which can lead to temporary or permanent hair loss, such as lupus, lichen planopilaris and alopecia areata.
Don't forget that the average adult loses between 75 and 125 hairs a day. This is the result of a natural process whereby certain hairs enter a dormant state (telogen) while others leave a dormant state (anagen): a new hair grows out of the follicle.
As long as this process is in balance the number of hairs on the head remains constant.
Another less important factor related to hair loss is stress. We suspect that stress results in an acceleration of hereditary hair loss. Stress alone probably doesn't cause hair loss without the necessary genetic and hormonal influences.
The classic form of hair loss in men and women is inherited from one of the parents and starts after puberty. Head hair which is genetically sensitive to alopecia androgenetica (usually at the front and sides of the temples) loses thickness and potential length per individual hair every 3 to 5 year 'lifecycle' until it eventually disappears completely. Unfortunately by the time a man starts to notice that his hair is getting thinner, he has already lost about 50% of his hair. The hair on the back of the head and on the sides of the skull is usually genetically permanent in most men, that is to say that it continues to grow throughout his lifetime.
When all medical causes have been excluded and / or treated, one can perform a surgical procedure : galeatomy to prevent further hair loss.
Stop hair loss! Treatment to prevent baldness
Hair loss - baldness is often, but not always hereditary. Men or women with this predisposition may experience extreme thinning of the hair.
A galeatomy can be the solution. React in time!
Hair loss: the surgeryThe procedure was described decades ago and has undergone repeated technical improvements. In the Wellness Kliniek we have completely adapted the technique for the endoscopic method with minimal scarring and almost immediate recovery. During the procedure the hair surgeon makes a small incision above the temples. Using the endoscopic method the doctor changes the bloodflow to the scalp by loosening the galea and reworking a number of blood vessels. At the same time the stimulation of the sebaceous glands is altered. Bloodflow and feeling in the scalp is still guaranteed. Many patients claim that this procedure, undoubtedly works, with no exceptions. In women it can even encourge new hair growth. In men the effect is usually limited to preserving the remaining hair. Hence the message: 'Sooner rather than later'.
Galeatomy & Hair Transplantation
A galeatomy can be performed under a local anaestheti? The procedure lasts about 45 minutes. A galeatomy is often performed in combination with hair restoration surgery to prevent further hair loss.
There is no point in filling up a bald patch if the surrounding hair continues to fall out.
