When a man or a woman begins losing their hair, the worries begin. Worries about their appearance and looking less attractive. Worries about looking old. Worries about being less masculine or less feminine.
There are many reasons to consider your options in reversing hair loss or pattern baldness. Perhaps trying a different hairstyle hasn’t worked in covering up the balding areas or bald patches – and you’re ready to consider the next step.
You’ve seen and heard all about getting a hair transplant. Let’s talk about what this procedure entails, and whether it may be a good option for you:
Good Candidates for Hair Transplant Surgery
Many people have such incredible results after getting a hair transplant, it makes others with thinning hair consider having it done themselves. A variety of methods now can achieve an attractive and successful outcome in getting back a fuller head of hair.
One of the most popular methods is collecting the person’s own hair for their transplant. The hair follicles can be harvested by a physician from the back of the head, or from other areas where the hair is dense, and then transplanted to the area where more hair is desired.
The system works well for men, women, and those whose hair is not growing back as they’d thought.
Hair loss in men tends to be very predictable, which makes it easier for a hair-transplant physician to correct surgically. Hair follicles are usually taken from the back of the head toward the bottom, near the neck, where the hair is dense.
If you are a man who has been experiencing hair loss for a while but the loss seems to have reached a stopping point or is slowing, see a hair-transplant specialist. The doctor will conduct an evaluation to determine whether you may be a good candidate for a transplant or whether other options would be advisable.
Everyone thinks of hair loss as happening to men as they get older, and women are left out of the thought process – but it happens to women, too. Women tend to experience hair loss in the area of the natural “part” of their hair.
Women tend to have more areas of their scalp from which a hair-restoration surgeon can take perfectly healthy hair follicles for transplanting to the areas that need more hair. A woman should not hesitate to consult with an experienced hair-restoration surgeon to see how they might achieve a more youthful look, whether through surgery or by other methods.
When Hair Is Not Regrowing
More mature patients who have hair loss that has stabilized will achieve better results from a hair transplant than, say, men in their 20s. Younger patients would likely need revision surgery later on if their hair loss has not slowed or stopped.
If you are in your 20s and you are experiencing hair loss, having hair-restoration surgery may achieve spotty results in the next few years because you may continue to lose more hair. Spots with newly restored hair may be surrounded by new balding spots.
It is therefore, a good idea to have a consultation with a hair-restoration specialist who can explain exactly what you should be looking for, and when would be the best time or age to consider having a hair transplant.
