Male & Female Pattern Hair Loss Treatment

Hair Loss and Types of Hair Loss

(Medical term for hair loss of any type is called Alopecia)

Discreet and professional male and female pattern hair loss treatments are offered by Dr Malkani one of UK's leading hair restoration surgeons.We aim to give natural looking hair with our treatments.


What causes hair loss? The causes of hair are complex and may vary depending on many factors. These include genetics, various physical and psychological conditions, e.g. Thyroid disease, Trichotillomania, malnutrition due to bulimia etc. and medication a person may be taking. The important thing is to find out whether the hair loss that a person is experiencing is preventable and correctable, or the best way to do that is to see a doctor who specialises in hair loss and carries out restorative hair procedures and is not a salesman/middleman who specialises/interested in his/her commission.

Contributory and/or triggering factors in hair loss in males and females may be lifestyle related for example smoking, alcohol, consumption of anabolic steroids, stress and anxiety, the styling of hair which cause repeated traction and trauma to hair, e.g. braiding, wearing hair extensions, tight turbans, plucking of eyebrows etc.

Male Pattern Hair Loss or Androgenetic Alopecia

50% of the men lose 50% of hair by age 50 due to androgenetic Alopecia or commonly called AGA.

AGA is the result of cooperation and interaction, in predisposed individuals between genes and male hormones known as Androgens i.e. converted product commonly known as DHT. There is often a family history here.

It starts by a process of miniaturisation in which the diameter of the affected hair is progressively reduced and the hair cycle gets shorter. As a result hair in the affected hair appears finer (like baby hair,) shorter and last less longer than surrounding normal terminal hair. The hair comes off easily with a comb or a pull and is noticeably falling out.

Male pattern hair loss is best classified by the Norwood Scale / classification. This allows the hair transplant surgeons and hair loss physicians to assess the severity of hair loss.

Men experience hair loss most commonly in the hairline and crown area of the scalp. This can occur as one form or both forms simultaneously. Losing hair follicles can be very distressing and devastating. It can cause a loss of confidence, self-esteem and affect day to day life, relationships and your job. As a result of hair loss many people can experience depression, withdrawal from social interaction, self-image problems .

Thankfully, there are many options available to address issues created by hair loss. The outcomes vary from individual to individual. These include but are not limited to hair restoration surgery which can be dramatic and permanent.

Medical hair restoration treatments such as hair loss tablets which act as DHT blockers, Dutasteride and Minoxidil, low light laser therapy and Camouflaging agents including micro pigmentation, wigs etc.

Female Pattern Hair Loss

Female Hair loss is more complex and multifactorial than Male pattern hair loss. Causes of female hair may include one or more of the following conditions in the simultaneously:

Iron Deficiency, underactive thyroid (Hypothyroidism), polycystic ovarian syndrome, deficiency of one or several vitamins and zinc, sex hormone imbalances and so on. Some females suffer from Androgenetic alopecia, especially after menopause.

While male hair loss mostly affects the hairline and crown, female hair loss occurs in the scalp midline and is diffusely creating a Christmas tree pattern on the parting of the hair in the middle.

As in men, hair transplant surgery is an option and a safe one.

Medical treatments include treatments should involve identifying the underlying causes such as Hypothyroidism or iron deficiency, PCOS( polycystic ovarian syndrome.)

Topical Minoxidil is a treatment lotion, Spironolactone (this is a tablet) oral contraceptives, hair loss tablets which act as DHT blockers. LLLT (Low light laser therapy) and scalp micropigmentation are also options to be considered.

What Patients Are Saying

11 April 2019

As the partner of a very nervous patient, I want to tell you that if you choose the team you will not be sorry. Shane had wanted this procedure for a while, but was nervous, he hates going to the doctors and even worse hospitals or anything like it.  It took lots of encouragement to get him to take the plunge, I knew 5 years down the line he would regret not having this done. The night before we stayed in London round the corner from Harley street, Shane was really nervous the night before, but as soon as we met they made him feel really relaxed, he answered every question we had, completely honestly and within 5 minutes had earnt both of our respect and trust, something that remained throughout the day. Shane was really looked after, and they made me feel included. While I could not be in the room with Shane for the first part of the procedure, I was kept informed of progress and got to have lunch with him before the second part of the process.

If you are in doubt of to do this, and your doubt is related to the actual procedure, then let me tell you there is nothing at all to worry about with Malkani hair institute.

Going into this procedure I was nervous as you would expect, however after talking to the team for the first 20 minutes and going over the procedure and how it would work, I can honestly say I felt really relaxed and I am not someone who likes to visit any doctor and hospitals fill me with dread. This was a totally different experience, I felt completely comfortable with the surgeon and both the nurses that assisted him with my procedure. They assured me that they would look after me like family, and that ‘today I was their priority’, saying this is easy, but honestly that is how I felt from start to finish. The whole procedure was weirdly one of the most relaxing days I have spent I even fell asleep during the first part of the procedure where hairs are removed from the donor site, the atmosphere is relaxed and the team are amazing at what they do. I can honestly say the only downside to the day was the my partner managed to get a picture of me wearing crocs, something I swore I would never do :).

“The process is like no other and does take some time but I knew that in entering the procedure, the team are really thorough and excellent at what they do reassuring along the way taking his time to get it right. The support he has from his team is first class and the ladies went about the implants really methodically working simultaneously together to place each follicle. So for me because I lived so far away from London I did develop some real soreness around the head and believed I had an infection which is something that can happen, I spoke to the emergency hot line and sent pictures in, to which they that same day prescribed some low level antibiotics, the pharmacist sent them out via a carrier but unfortunately they took three days to get to me despite being urgent, my head was sore and the weekend was coming so I had to source them myself from my own GP surgery. So now its almost five weeks on, things are looking normal, hair has taken, and is starting to look good and I can now see what it will look like longer term. Would I have done this now knowing what was actually involved – yes I would it is really worth it.”

“I had a beard transplant carried out on the 9th October 2018 in London. It was a very long process, which I knew it would! The team were just wonderful!!! They made sure throughout the whole process that I was happy and comfortable, and they worked at my pace not theirs!

I do have to have several local anaesthetic injections in both the scalp (donor site) and the face. I didn’t experience any problem with this, but I do think I have quite a high pain threshold!
It’s now 17 days since the transplant, and I’m perfectly happy with everything! All the scabs and crusting (sorry about this, if you’re a bit squeamish!!) There’s absolutely no pain whatsoever! The hairs are quite noticeable on my chin, under my lower lip, as there wasn’t any hair there at all. And over all the appearance looks pretty good at the moment!

He couldn’t do enough to make me feel relaxed and happy! And he explained everything to before, during and after the procedure. And I would just like to mention his ‘team’, Farzana, Julie, Keira, Anni, and Marcin – what a great bunch of people! They made me hot drinks, supplied me with food, water, tv to watch and music to listen to!! I’m partially sighted, and they really took care of me!
If you are considering a hair transplant, this is the man to use!!!

Thanks so much, each and everyone of you!”

“Superb job! I had my procedure two days ago performed by the team – they were very considerate and professional and I would recommend unreservedly . – fantastic job guys many many thanks !!!!!”

“Had a really positive experience with them from start to finish. Very friendly and informative initial meeting; following a decision to progress I was given an advisor I could call at any time. I was daunted ahead of the procedure , but I shouldn’t have been. Dr M was brilliant, really knowledgable and calm and the day passed very quickly. After care was good, my contact supported me through questions that arrived. 6 months on I’m over the moon.the results are amazing , however after my 6 month review I was told I only had 42% growth (which is normal) so that is just out of this world! I’d be happy if it stopped growing now, but to have the same again to come is life changing. I’d definitely recommend.”

“I am an aesthetician working in Harley Street and know lots of Hair transplant surgeons on Harley Street. I chose them because of recommendations from some of my own patients. I sent my uncle for a consultation. There was no pushy sales technique. He is now booked for September.”

“I saw the team for a consultation a year ago.It felt very different talking to a doctor from a sales person who I had met in other clinics . They were factual, realistic and honest and told me what was possible and not possible in the consultation . I have had a fantastic result nine months later. I am really pleased I went for it. It’s been life changing!”
