Question: Dear team, I want to know what is the secret of Salman Khan’s hair regrowth. I am a 27 year old guy. I am losing my hair from the front portion. Is it really possible to have dense hair and regrowth? Is surgical treatment is really effective?
Answer: It is quite common for a man to see the first signs of male pattern baldness in his 20s. The first stage is, as you have mentioned, a receding hairline at the front of the head, usually above the temples. The good news is that, by taking preventative action now, it is possible to maintain dense hair and see good regrowth simply by using tailored hair loss treatments.
Surgical treatment can be effective if the hair loss area is small. This procedure might not be suitable if the hair loss is extensive. In addition to the transplant, you need to use medications such as Propecia and Minoxidil 5% (+MPG) or Minoxidil 12.5% (+Azelaic acid) to prevent hair loss around the transplant. Salman Khan’s hair is a classic example of a good result for hair transplantation.
The best thing to do would be to visit the Belgravia Centre for a consultation with a hair loss specialist who will assess whether you are a good candidate for a transplant procedure and if you are suitable for the treatment. This involves an examination of the hair and scalp by one of our Trichologists and recommendation of the most effective course of action for your particular condition and stage of hair loss. The appointment is free of charge and it will take about 30-40 minutes.
To book a consultation, call Belgravia’s reception on 020 7730 6666 or message the centre. Appointments are available Monday to Thursday, 10am to 7pm, Friday 10am to 3:30pm, Saturday 9am-4:00pm and Sunday 10am-3.30pm.
If it is not possible for you to visit the London centre then complete our on-line diagnostic form and ideally submit this with a photograph of the affected area. The information that you provide on the form will allow us to diagnose the hair loss, advise on surgery and recommend a suitable treatment course.
