Men / Hair Transplant

Testosterone is a sex hormone that circulates in men and women’s blood. Its active form, DHT, or dihydrotestosterone, binds to the hair bulbs thinning them until they die completely.

Men have more testosterone than women, for this reason this phenomenon is more evident in men.

Of course alopecia can be caused from other reasons too: mycosis, genetic diseases, hepatitis, stress, but the most common cause of baldness is androgenetic alopecia.

Dr. Borra speaks on TV of hair transplant and gynecomastia

Dr. Borra is host of the prime-time broadcast of the Swiss television and performs two operations: a hair transplant with microsurgical technique and a gynecomastia

What is hair transplantation?

Hair transplantation is a surgical hair transfer from the nape to vertex and forehead.

The hair on the back of the head is different from the others: genetically it binds less to testosterone therefore it doesn’t die for it’s effect. This is why androgenetic alopecia baldness is localized on the forehead and on the top, not on temples and the back of the head.

What kind of surgery can you do?


Dr. Borra performs the removal of a strip of the nape’s scalp containing a sufficient amount of hair for transplant. The surrounding skin is stitched with absorbable threads: we perform a suture that doesn’t damage the remaining hair, technically called Trichophytic suture. The withdrawn strip passes over  to the expert hands of nurses that take from it the individual follicular units.


With a special  instrument dr Borra picks the hair bulbs that are directly transplanted where needed.
