Hair Transplant, a better alternative to loss of hair

While many people shy away from the topic of hair transplant especially women, it is now a subject worth discussing and considering. Over the years a vast majority of men have struggled with baldness and this in turn has made some lack self esteem and self worth. Most have resulted to using wigs. Furthermore a lot of women are now suffering from hair loss due to various factors e.g. medical conditions, too much tension on the scalp when the hair is plaited or even due to their beauty regime etc.

Hair transplant is a simple surgery that involves moving hair from a thick region to fill in a balding area or a thinning area and within 6 to 9 months one should start noticing new hair growth in the region transplanted. It is important to note that the transplanted hair will not bald as might be the case around it.

While most insurance companies do not cover this surgery as it is considered a cosmetic surgery, the cost will be determined by the size being transplanted. However the cost is bearable if you factor in use of wigs over a lifetime especially for young people experiencing hair loss or the general boost of self esteem brought about by the transplant.

If you are thinking about having a hair transplant, do a thorough research on the surgeon you want to use. He/ She should not only be doing the transplant but should also address the root cause of the hair loss to begin with.
