Are You Follically Challenged?
For a long time baldness was blamed on many circumstances and causes including poor circulation to the scalp, vitamin deficiencies, dry skin and dandruff, and even excessive hat-wearing. All of these theories have been disproved to some degree or another. It’s also untrue that hair loss can be determined by looking at your maternal grandfather, or that men over 40 years old who still have their hair will never lose it.
If hair growth has ceased for you, then it may be time to for you to explore other options, one of those options is hair replacement surgery. Hair transplant surgery, if chosen, can be accomplished in many different ways, with varying degrees of success depending on hair quantity and particular results requested. Different types of grafts and even scalp reduction are the main way to adding the desired fullness for your comfort.
Sometimes it is best to try out some of the other solutions available such as topical products and creams first. Your doctor should be able to guide you through the maze of so called wonder drugs that say you will have a new head of hair overnight. In any case it is never a bad idea to consult a specialty physician or clinic to have your specific case examined by professionals. As a medical procedure consider all options before making your decision as it can effect your emotional and financial well being.
It is always recommended that when looking into surgery that you ask the doctor any and all questions you feel relevant, don’t hedge your questions because they may sound stupid. Surgery can be a scary thing you need to be informed of everything involved, before you proceed. Check prices and costs associated with your chosen procedure and see what type of payment options are available.
