If you’ve been thinking hard for the past few weeks regarding hair transplants, then perhaps the information we’ve prepared here would help you decide. Like all medical procedures (yes, it’s still formally a medical procedure), hair transplants has its own set of pros and cons. Nonetheless, it is you who would be deciding the fate of your own balding pate, and not anyone else. Not even your doctor.
Unlike the olden images of hair transplants being painful aberrations of medical science, the hair transplants today are quite sophisticated. Because doctors are no longer limited to the traditional scalpel and needle approach, hair transplants of today make use of the most advanced ways of eliminating pain and blood from the equation.
New techniques emerge nearly every decade. These progressions in hair transplant procedure usually come about from United Kingdom, the United States, Mexico and from small European countries.
Join The Millions
Is hair transplantation the last resort for many Americans? The answer, fortunately, is no. More than a hundred thousand fellow Americans go under the knife each year to improve the aesthetic and cosmetic features of their receding hairlines.
Most of these patients undergo the procedure to improve their chances in future careers. Because whether we like it or not, we are judged first for, what we look like and what we wear.
No More “Pluggy” Look
One of the bigger problems in the past decades was the end result of surgical hair transplantation. The “pluggy” look, which meant more hair was existent at the top (very conspicuous indeed) of the head than anywhere else. This look actually informed everybody that at least something had been done with scalp.
Now, the pluggy look had been overcome because the transplantation techniques have been improved. In addition, transplant rejection and other such problems of the past have been literally swept away clearly from the table.
The Cost Of Hair Transplants
One of the biggest challenges of having hair transplants is the price itself. Hair transplants costs upward of thousands of dollars per procedure. Sometimes, it takes more than two or three different procedures to produce a full-looking head of hair. In these instances, you as a potential client should look carefully at the packages being offered by different hair transplant clinics.
Unbelievably, there are still some hair transplant clinics that make use of shoddy techniques and even shoddier equipment. You won’t die of the hair transplant, but there is no assurance that the effects would be long lasting. If the effects are not long lasting, then you won’t be able to enjoy the money you spent on your balding pate.
However, to be safe, you should always look at the one doing the surgery first before you look at the prices. The reason for this is that those people that are offering extremely attractive low prices might not be that competent to carry out a good hair transplant procedure.
Your safety as a patient should be the first concern, and not the price. You can save money for the price of a competent surgeon; but never sacrifice yourself for the sake of a cheap, unsure operation.
