Hair loss or baldness has become a cultural malaise like obesity today. A large section of the population, especially males, is affected by it. While the so-called male pattern baldness is not a health concern in itself, its effects on one’s social and professional life are profound. People commonly report loss of self-esteem and in certain appearance-intensive careers, even a loss of good career opportunities.
Needless to say, this is not a good situation to be in. So I’d say that don’t let age complicate matters for you; no matter whether you are 30 or 50, there’s no reason you should have to bear the ill-effects of baldness.
Is baldness treatment possible?
This is the fundamental question most people are grappling with. Baldness seems so natural that they wonder whether a treatment is possible at all. Well, the answer is a resounding yes! Not only is treatment for baldness possible, the methods developed by medical science today are hassle-free and 100% guaranteed to work. With the help of hair transplant, it’s possible to give you back natural-looking hair, and of course, the joy of being alive again.
What is a hair transplant?
Hair transplant is one of the most popular and successful ways of treating male pattern baldness. Fundamentally, it’s a surgical operation that takes healthy hair follicles from another scalp and plants them on to your scalp. By follicles, I mean the base of the scalp that contains the tissues responsible for hair growth. Once this transplant has been effected, natural hair growth occurs, with the result that you can never tell that the concerned area of the scalp didn’t have hair before!
Why do I need a transplant?
There’s bound to be some apprehension about any new treatment. More so when there is a surgical procedure involved, although in the case of a transplant it’s a minor one. Which is why I suggest you shouldn’t jump into the treatment out of pure desperation. At the same time, harboring myths about hair transplants and rejecting the whole idea is also not a practical option. Instead, approach it with an open mind and try to learn more about it. Read up on the Internet and see what the authorities and critics have to say about it. Check out some of the photos and testimonials of people and see what they have to say. If you do think the idea sounds good, find out a good specialist and have 2-3 advance visits to clear all your doubts. Even if these tend to be paid visits, they’d be worth it, although most of the hair transplant clinics will be only too happy to interact with you and answer your queries.
Finally, understand that some bit of precaution will be there. For the first few days, you have to be extremely careful about maintaining the hair transplant the right way. Also, because of the minor surgery, you also need to check on the scalp and ensure it’s healing well. But don’t worry almost all the hair transplants go well and there’s nothing to be overly apprehensive of.
