Your hair is one of the first things people see when they look at you. Like it or not, your hair is a big part of the image you present to the world every day. If you experience hair loss or hair thinning, it probably happens so gradually that you do not notice it right away. But once you see a difference in your hair line, you may want to consider hair restoration treatment. Here are just some indications that can help you determine if you are ready to give hair restoration a try.
You have hereditary baldness.
Also called Male Pattern Baldness (or Female Pattern Baldness), this type of hair loss usually makes you a good candidate for a hair transplant to transform your appearance and help you look great. With hereditary baldness, there usually is a good-sized area of healthy, thick hair growing around the sides and back of the head. This hair serves as the “donor” area when you have a transplant, and it will likely grow for the rest of your life. People with hair loss due to sickness, medication, or other reasons may be candidates for hair restoration, too. Your hair loss specialist will be able to tell you.
You aren’t past the point of baldness that a transplant can’t help.
The area of donor hair needs to be large and dense enough to provide hair to the areas where you wish to restore hair. It’s important to have realistic expectations for a hair restoration procedure. If you are totally bald or near bald, there are other methods besides hair restoration to consider besides a hair transplant.
You have tried other methods and are dissatisfied with the results and are prepared to make an investment in your hair.
A hair transplant is surgery, albeit minor surgery under local anesthesia. The procedure, anesthesia, and of course the expertise of your surgeon are all factors in the cost of a hair transplant. The results are permanent and can be a total game-changer for your self-esteem and appearance. But it is not cheap compared to a can of foam.
You have patience.
The hair that is transplanted to your hairline or site of thinning hair will not start to grow for several months. Some people choose to shave their heads so that all their hair grows in at the same time, or women may cover their heads with a headband or scarf. By 12 months after the procedure, your hair will have noticeably grown in and you will be able to see how your hair will look from then on!
You do your homework.
Don’t just choose the first hair restoration specialist you see. Experience and expertise is essential in this very delicate procedure. Look into the reputation of the practice, credentials of the surgeon, references, and of course, before and after photos. This is not something to take chances with.
