Male pattern baldness is a common issue for many men, affecting half of all males by the time they reach the age of 50. Male baldness occurs as hormone levels change over a man’s lifetime, especially in the later years, resulting in a receding mature hairline that can lead to different severity levels of male baldness. At Vera Clinic, we offer many hair transplant in Turkey solutions to restore your mature hairline to its former glory, putting male pattern baldness to rest.
The solutions we offer include innovative methods such as the widely acclaimed FUE hair transplant technique, Afro hair transplants, and many more. Using our cleverly designed tool, the Hair Graft Calculator, you can assess your personal hair loss based on the male pattern baldness stages, and find out which method of hair transplant is right for you to cure any male hair loss issues you may have.

What Are The Causes Of Male Pattern Baldness?
Many men will experience male hair loss with the hairline continuing to recede until they are completely bald. One cause of male pattern baldness is through genetics or having a family history of baldness, with research finding that male pattern baldness is associated with male sex hormones called androgens. The androgens have many functions, including regulating hair growth, with each hair on your head having a growth cycle. When it comes to male pattern baldness, this growth cycle begins to weaken. The hair follicle shrinks, producing shorter and finer strands of hair, leading eventually to the growth cycle for each hair ending. This then means there is no new hair to grow in its place.
This type of male baldness is also referred to as Androgenic Alopecia, which can affect younger males as early as before the age of 21, with the likelihood increasing with age. Men who have close relatives with male pattern baldness are at a higher risk of suffering the same issue. This is particularly true when their relatives are on the maternal side of the family.
Inherited male pattern baldness usually has no side effects to go with male hair loss. However, in some rare instances, it can lead to certain cancers or thyroid conditions. If hair loss occurs after taking a new medication or when it’s accompanied by other health complaints, for example, this is when you should speak to a Doctor about male pattern baldness stages.
Skin conditions may be a cause of baldness particularly if you notice a rash, redness, or peeling of the scalp. Other signs include hair breakage, patchy hair loss, or an unusual pattern of hair loss. A skin biopsy and blood tests may be necessary to diagnose disorders responsible for hair loss.
Male Pattern Baldness Cure - Do I Need Medical Treatment?
Medical treatment for a mature hairline isn’t always necessary if other health conditions aren’t a cause. However, treatments are available for men and women who are unhappy with pattern baldness developing further. Here at Vera Clinic, we can offer specialist treatment to help provide a male pattern baldness cure within our state-of-the-art facilities in Istanbul, Turkey. Whilst there is no ‘cure’ as such to prevent male pattern baldness from happening, there are many options men may try to help reverse the signs of hair loss. Some of these include:
Different Hairstyles – men with limited hair loss can sometimes hide hair loss with the right haircut or hairstyle.
Wigs or Hairpieces- wigs can cover thinning hair, receding hairlines, and complete baldness and are available in a variety of styles, colours, and textures. For a natural look, choose wig colours, styles, and textures that look similar to your original hair.
Weaves – hair weaves are wigs that are sewn into your natural hair. You must have enough hair to sew the weave into. The advantage to weaves is they always stay on, even during activities such as swimming, showering, and sleeping. The disadvantages are they must be sewn again whenever new hair growth occurs, and the sewing process can damage your natural hair.
Minoxidil (Rogaine) – this is a topical medication applied to the scalp. Minoxidil slows hair loss for some men and stimulates the hair follicles to grow new hair. Minoxidil takes four months to one year to produce visible results. Hair loss often happens again when you stop taking the medication.
Counselling – Going bald can be a big change and you should seek counselling if you experience anxiety, low self-esteem, depression, or other emotional problems because of male pattern baldness.
Whilst some of the above may provide a temporary solution to male pattern baldness stages, they do not provide a permanent male pattern baldness cure. The most effective long-term solution to male pattern baldness is by having a hair transplant, which we specialise in here at Vera Clinic.
Natural Male Pattern Baldness Cures
A traditional hair transplant is an invasive and expensive treatment for hair loss, which is why we are happy to offer advanced techniques that cut the costs and provide a minimally invasive solution. A hair transplant works by removing hair follicles from areas of the scalp that have active hair growth. These are then transplanted to thinning or balding areas of your scalp. Traditionally this involved surgically cutting the skin where good hair growth is experienced, leaving noticeable scarring and more pain and discomfort.
The FUE hair transplant procedure does not involve any cutting of the skin, instead, each hair follicle is removed from the good growth area and transplanted to the hair loss area of concern. The benefits of undergoing advanced hair transplant treatment for male baldness include:
A permanent solution to hair loss
Natural-looking head of hair
Lower costs than traditional surgery
Minimal pain and shorter downtime
Hair regrowth in hair loss areas
No visible scarring
FUE and Sapphire FUE, where sapphire is used for instruments for more accuracy and precision, are both popular treatment options for a mature hairline. You can see pictures before and after treatment from many patients we have helped see up to 40-50% hair regrowth within 3 months. Then, after a full year, all treated areas of hair loss should experience hair regrowth. As a male pattern baldness cure, considering a minimally invasive hair transplant is extremely cost-effective and provides long-term results.
Book a consultation at Vera Clinic in Istanbul, Turkey, and discover solutions to male pattern baldness that will restore your hair confidence and provide a youthful aesthetic to reverse a mature hairline. If you are experiencing hair loss in other parts of your body, we can also provide expertise with eyebrow transplants and beard transplants.
Male Pattern Baldness FAQs
Can Male Hair Loss be Prevented?
Unfortunately, there’s no prevention to male pattern baldness before it happens. Stress may cause male hair loss by increasing the production levels of sex hormones in the body. You can help reduce stress by participating in relaxing activities, such as walking, listening to calming music, and enjoying more quiet time. Other things such as wearing your hair in a tight style such as a bun, ponytail or plaits may cause excessive strain on the hair follicles, whilst certain heat products (straighteners, hairdryers) and chemicals found in hair dye, for example, may cause long-term hair damage.
Will a Hair Transplant for my Mature Hairline be the Right Solution for Me?
A hair transplant is suitable for some that suffer from male hair loss, but the results will vary between individuals. If you have permanent hair loss, it could be the best option if you still have some healthy hair growth. Those in the early male pattern baldness stages will be suitable if hair regrowth is not occurring. We always recommend having a full consultation before proceeding with treatment, which we can offer for free at Vera Clinic to determine the best solution for you.
Is Having a Hair Transplant in Turkey a Cheaper Solution to Pattern Baldness?
Yes, it can be a cost-effective solution especially here at Vera Clinic as you may find the total cost of treatment at home is much higher. We can help arrange flights, accommodation, and transportation to our facilities in Istanbul and provide a quote along with treatment for male baldness. During a consultation, we will be able to determine if the desired results you are looking for are possible and advise the best course of treatment to help you. Whilst costs may work out lower here in Turkey, the standards of care and quality remain extremely high and all procedures are performed by qualified, experienced surgeons.
