The role of androgens in male pattern hair loss has been considered since ancient times.
Testosterone and di-hydro-testosterone has been implicated as one of the most important factor for male pattern hair loss. Most of the patients whom we encounter for hair transplant are the typical cases of androgenetic alopecia.
Male pattern hair loss has a strong genetic component and is easily elicited from the patient’s family history.
Therefore we evaluate the complete family history of the patient before deciding any kind of treatment plan for him.
