Come To Terms With Hair Loss? or What?

For some it is not an issue in their life but for others hair loss can be emotive. It is not always easy to come to terms with hair loss. It can carry many negative emotions as well as a loss of confidence. So, what to do?

Advances in hair loss prevention and transplantation surgery have developed. With medical improvements, knowledge and skills to improve the results available for the right candidates. Developments in medical research and surgical techniques have given the patient restored faith in the field of hair restoration. Patient results show that improving Hair Transplant techniques in the field of hair restoration can give a viable option to those looking for a permanent solution to areas of hair loss.

What´s All The Fuss About Hair Anyway?

Hair loss occurs in the majority of men and more increasingly now in woman today. That said, it is seen by many as a flaw that needs to be cured. Socially, it is widely considered to be an unwelcome sign of ageing.

Generally, men or woman, we try to look our best. Feel good about ourselves and like to convey a youthful appearance to others. Hair loss can have deep psychological effects for both men and woman. Consciously or subconsciously can affect confidence. Social media, and outside influences go a long way in telling us how we should look and be.

In the scheme of life, having a good head of hair may to some seem a relatively unimportant aspect.

But, surveys have shown that people with a good head of hair are more likely to find employment when compared with their equally qualified, balding counterparts.

Irrational Love Of Hair

It must be totally irrational and unfair that hair has such an impact. But still a reality of the world we live in today.

It is commonly heralded that hair is synonymous with riches, beauty, youthfulness and vitality as well as strength. When obviously, hair has nothing to do with wealth, rarely health and age as it can affect at almost any age for many reasons.

In research behavioural studies scientists have indicated that having a good head of hair is linked to self-expression.

Having the ability to restore something genetics has deprived us of can restore our own feel-good factor. A more youthful look and improved self- confidence and self-esteem. When we feel good about ourselves it shows to others in a confidence that does not have to be spoken. There are no barriers, age, gender and genre; be it a young man with early thinning, a
50 something wanting to looks and feel good, or a woman feeling she is losing her femininity.

Leave Hair Loss Behind or Not?

All this being said, there is obviously nothing wrong in not wanting more hair. Comments people can make can fall on deaf ears. If this can be appreciated it can save years of stress. We can be vulnerable at times and this can be when we are at our most susceptible to outside influences and stereotypes. If hair loss is not a concern to you then your read will probably finish here.

There is nothing wrong in wanting a better head of hair either. It is not a weakness, nor is giving into stereotypes. It is important to understand why you want a better head of hair and why. What can be achieved, and importantly will you be happy. Why are we doing this and do you understand, who are you doing this for, you or others? If solely for others then it could lead to unhappiness in the future if the result does not transpire into the goal.

The Next Step

Hair loss has a social stigma attached to it, ironically so has dealing with hair loss. A fear that hair restoration procedures don´t work out can be a concern in treating your hair loss as well as being public if you are not happy. The internet has allowed hair loss sufferers to purchase products online from the anonymity of their home. This has a number of advantages obviously. But also the internet has allowed many to say anything. Without checks and balances on occasions.

Good Hair Restoration Candidates

When deciding to deal with your hair loss the first decision is how. Before deciding to undergo a hair transplant it is important to research. Maybe a surgical option is not the best or correct first option to take.

Goals and Expectations

A medical and diagnostic appraisal will determine the suitability of the individual in undergoing a hair loss treatment or hair transplant surgery. Part of the consultation process is to look at the future. This will help to assess whether the goals set out today will work with the potential for hair loss in the future.

There are three FDA approved medicated treatments and therapies. These are registered for the treatment of hair loss. Although FDA approved it must be understood there is no miracle cure and results can vary from person to person.

Be wary of products claiming to grow hair with or without all natural ingredients and no side effects. The hair loss medications sector is a large market. The offering of relatively inexpensive “remedies” can be enticing,

Turning To Surgical Hair Restoration

A hair transplant is not a miracle cure. Only the redistribution of hair. In some cases, not all people are suitable for a hair transplant procedure. A hair transplant and medications can complement each other. It is important to understand that surgical hair replacement without medical therapy may not provide a suitable result.

A hair transplant is an elective surgery. You should feel free to ask questions and see how they are answered. The more questions you can ask the better informed you will become and you will be able gauge the openness of the clinic. You need to then compare the approaches from different doctors and decide who you feel has the correct approach for you, who has your best interests and who can deliver the results.

Finding the Best Doctor Suited To Your Needs

There are thousands of hair restoration doctors around the world. The vast majority have hair transplantation as one of the options they provide. More often than not also providing other cosmetic surgical procedures. Only a small percentage of clinics is a dedicated medical practice solely to hair transplantation, full-time hair restoration surgery.

The Latest Technique

The use of Follicular Units changed the method of placement and the quality of the result. Keeping the natural groups intact when removed and placing them in the same natural groupings back into the recipient area.

Typically, approximately 30% of scalp hair follicles have one hair, 40% have two hairs and 30% of follicles have three to four hairs, but this varies from person to person and ethnic background.

When designing a hair transplant it is important for a varied mix of each hair grouping. For example, single hair units for the hairline and larger groupings to add the thickness behind.

With a greater understanding of the anatomy and body proportions, this has aided surgeons to be able to mimic nature and create natural hairline results for patients, with skills such as recognising angulation, orientation and spacing and the importance they all play. These medical and artistic skills will determine how the hair will grow in creating a look that is natural.

Measuring Goals & Expectations

Make your decision as much as possible based on facts you can research. Not what your heart wants to believe. Not every Clinic that promises to be the first or the best can be telling the truth. Often, if everything sounds too good to be true. Or simply, fits into the way you would like it to be. There is probably a catch, especially with respect to a medical procedure. It can take time to find the right Clinic. Maybe one of the biggest of your life, so time is something you can afford. A few months or year of researching can save you many more years of problems.
