Reasons for Hair Loss
Approximately 70 percent of adults will experience some sort of hair loss or hair thinning in their lifetime. For some, this hair loss will barely acknowledge it. For others, however, addressing their hair loss issues becomes a priority. One of the first steps in finding a solution, however, is to determine why the loss is happening in the first place.
At Dauer Hair Restoration, we recommend that all clients meet with their own personal doctor before beginning any kind of hair loss treatment program to help determine why they are losing their hair. The following is some of the top reasons our hair loss specialists see. If you are interested in knowing more about hair loss surgery in Beverly Hills, CA, please call our clinic today.
Autoimmune Disease: When a person has an autoimmune disease, the immune system attacks the body. Some diseases, such as lupus, the hair follicle is attacked by the immune system, causing the hair to fall out, often in clumps. In general, hair loss surgery in Beverly Hills, CA may not be the right treatment for hair loss caused by an autoimmune disease. However, you should ask a hair loss doctor to learn more.
Chemical Products: Using too many chemical products on the scalp can damage the hair follicles. Hair dyes, bleaches, perm solutions, and more can cause significant damage when overused. Some of the damage may be reversed if the product use is stopped.
Chemotherapy: One of the side effects of chemotherapy is hair loss. When the treatments are done, the hair slowly grows back.
Diet: An imbalance of certain nutrients can cause issues with hair loss. Too much vitamin A can cause hair loss. Too little vitamin B, protein, or iron can also cause hair to fall out. Before considering hair loss surgery in Beverly Hills, CA, be sure to consider whether or not your diet is causing you to lose hair.
Genetics: One of the main causes of hair loss is genetics. This type of hair loss is usually progressive and permanent. Typically, the only permanent solution for this type of hair loss is hair transplantation through hair loss surgery in Beverly Hills, CA.
Hair Styles: When a hairstyle requires pulling the hair tightly back, a condition called traction alopecia can develop and result in hair loss because this continued pulling causes the strands of hair to become weak and break.
Hormones: Hormone level changes can have a negative impact on hair. These changes can be caused by pregnancy, menopause, thyroid issues, or the use of birth control medication. Hair will usually grow back once hormone levels return to normal.
Medical Conditions: There are many medical conditions which can cause hair loss, including trauma from an accident or reactions to medications.
Stress: When some people are under stress, their hair starts to fall out. This type of hair loss happens when there are too many hair follicles in the resting phase. This is referred to as telogen effluvium. This type of hair loss is reversible when stress is eliminated or reduced.
Progressive Hair Loss
When hair loss is permanent and progressive, there are a number of different options and solutions that Marc Dauer, M.D. or Dauer Hair Restoration offers which can not only slow down that progression, but also help restore the hair that has been lost. We offer both surgical and nonsurgical solutions.

Cutting Edge Technology
Though the hair loss surgery performed in our Beverly Hills, CA office uses cutting edge technology to achieve superb results, the equipment and techniques used are highly tested and proven to be safe and effective. Tens of thousands of patients continue to enjoy a fuller and richer head of hair. Results are permanent, which is a great advantage over traditional hair pieces which are also awkward to wear, expensive, and not always natural looking. In fact, the hair loss surgery method we use takes advantage of the patient’s own hair. This means that the chance of the body rejecting the transplanted hair follicles is very low. It also results in a natural look because the grafted hair, and the new hair that results, is the patient’s own hair. The style, color, thickness of each matches which adds to the natural look. And unlike a hair piece, results from hair loss surgery performed in Beverly Hills, CA are permanent for our patients.
Methods of Harvesting the Patient’s Hair Follicles
As mentioned, the hair loss surgery we provide in Beverly Hills, CA takes advantage of the patient’s healthy hair follicles to generate new hair growth. There are two main methods of harvesting the patient’s hair follicles: hair transplantation using a “strip” which is referred to as FUT and Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE).
The FUT Method
Using the FUT method, the hair loss surgery performed at our Beverly Hills, CA is as follows:
- A very small section of the patient’s scalp is removed using a scalpel.
- That scalp area is then closed with either staples or sutures. Every effort is made to reduce the likelihood of leaving a scar. Primarily, only a certain number of follicles are removed from the same area during the same procedure.
- The hair follicle grafts are transplanted into small slits that the doctor has placed in the predetermined recipient locations on the scalp. These are based on where hair density is most needed and will be natural looking.
The FUE Method
Using this method for hair loss surgery, our doctor in Beverly Hills, CA will use a specially developed FUE device to harvest hair grafts. More grafts can be transplanted at a time using this procedure as compared to the FUT method. There is also less risk that the patient will have a residual linear donor scar. Because there is no surgical cutting of the scalp, there is no need for staples or sutures after the grafts have been harvested. Recovery time is typically faster than when patients undergo hair loss surgery Beverly Hills, CA has to offer using the FUT method.
