Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) June 20, 2013
Sports experts may be lending early predictions tonight of NBA Finals game seven in favor of Miami and LeBron James, but this is about another prediction for LeBron that might be more of a "fail" than a "win" - the fate of NBA Star LeBron James' hairline. He was even sporting a shorter look in game six of the NBA finals on Wednesday.
"LeBron is experiencing hair loss from what appears to be male pattern baldness," says celebrity hair transplant surgeon Dr. John Kahen of Beverly Hills Hair Restoration.
The Doctor explains that while shaving the head is an option for LeBron James and others who are suffering from the condition, there are more permanent solutions for male pattern baldness.
"Many people don't realize there is a solution for this,"explains the Doctor. African American hair has a specific texture that makes it challenging for hair transplant surgery. But with the right technique, undetectable results can be achieved.
For James' procedure, Dr. Kahen personally recommends the Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) technique to ensure no visible scarring, he explains.
"Yes, hair restoration on African Americans is difficult. NO, it's not impossible. A celebrity basketball star - even an average person - doesn't need to walk around with visible scarring from a hair transplant procedure."
James is a choice example of how a receding hairline and hair loss can affect young men in their twenties. And Dr. Kahen and his Beverly Hills hair transplant practice are proof that natural results and a permanent solution need not be reserved for just the wealthy and famous.
Dr. Kahen has performed many FUE hair transplant procedures on African American celebrities and understands the required skill in working with specific hair textures. One VIP patient in particular underwent an FUE hair transplant by Dr. Kahen. The patient was pleased to notice healing in the donor area within the first ten days and results within the first 8 months. See before and after photos of the donor area using FUE technique. No visible linear scar using this advanced technique.
As far as any loss predictions for the Spurs: Manu Ginobili is a Class 3 Vertex on the Norwood Classification of Male Pattern Alopecia, says Dr. Kahen. This represents early hair loss in the crown and a receding hairline. Dr. Kahen's recommendation? Hair loss prevention of some sort to stop any future hair loss and, eventually, a hair transplant and hairline rejuvenation.
The first step towards determining if hair transplant surgery is the best solution, Dr. Kahen says, is finding the cause of hair loss. A male pattern baldness diagnosis means an ideal candidate for the hair transplant procedure since the donor hair on the back of scalp needs to be strong and thick enough for successful growth.
"Nine times out of ten, men are good candidates for the procedure since male pattern baldness is one of the most common causes of hair loss," he adds.
