What Is A Hair Transplant?
In cases where hair loss is nearly irreversible or significantly advanced, there is one treatment, with a near universal success rate, that allows for natural hair to grow back. Hair transplants, despite negative stereotyping, have provided effective and real results for many balding men across the country.
Historically, hair transplants for men have not been too convincing (think large, obvious hair plugs and scarring), however, nowadays, the technology and science powering hair transplants has been transformed, with the ability to target individual hair follicles in order to achieve the perfect transplant.
How Does A Hair Transplant Work?
The basic principle behind a hair transplant is simple; healthy, balding-resistant hair follicles still remain around the crown of the head, while the hair follicles needed for a full head of hair have closed-up prematurely due to a reaction with the hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT).
Hair transplant surgery involves moving healthy follicles to the areas of the scalp requiring help; healthy hairs can then begin to regrow in the places most needed.
Needless to say, the procedure and the results have greatly improved over time. Nowadays, men suffering from hair loss have multiple treatment options in order to remedy a wide range of balding and thinning conditions; below is an overview.
Hair Transplant Types
There are two main types of hair transplants for men:
- FUE: Short for Follicular Unit Extraction, hair follicles are harvested in individual units from around donor sites.
- FUT: Short for Follicular Unit Transplantation, a strip of tissue is taken from a donor region (usually the back of the crown).
Both types of transplants have their own distinct advantages and disadvantages; FUE transplants allow for much greater accuracy and detail in replicating original hair, whereas FUT transplants are generally simpler to perform resulting in a slightly cheaper option.
The outcome is the same; natural hair regeneration which is impossible to detect from the original.
Why Should You Consider A Hair Transplant?
A hair transplant is a completely safe surgical procedure with a minimal risk profile; but a transplant is about more than that.
For many men, a full head of hair is a sign of their youth, attractiveness and health. When hair begins to thin, many men experience some form of shame or embarrassment over something that they cannot control. If left unchecked, this could spiral into more serious consequences for long-term mental health and self-esteem.
A hair transplant is therefore about investing in your appearance in order to help you feel as good as you look. Not everyone needs a transplant, nor is it a last resort option; it is just another tool to help you feel as confident with your appearance as possible.
