Hair Transplants: Potentially a Life Saving Procedure

There are many more bald celebrities these days, of that there is no doubt! Some of them may not even suffer from any form of hair loss, they simply prefer the bald look or it suits their public image more. One thing that is virtually unheard of though is a celebrity who is happy to put up with thinning hair. Bald yes, thinning no!

Gradually losing ones hair can be an extremely traumatic experience for many and the emotions involved can range from mild annoyance to severe depression. Prematurely thinning hair can easily eat away at ones confidence to such an extent that some people have even contemplated taking their own life. This may sound a little extreme, but the fact remains that bald is not a look that works for everyone, even if it does work for Bruce Willis and Vin Diesel! A recent client told us that their life enjoyment had gone from about 90% to about 20% in less that two years, now that's a pretty hard change to come to terms with. Many of our clients feel that without surgical intervention, they would have lost most of their hair and be living a thoroughly miserable existence.

Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) : In depth.

Hair transplantation has become a minimally invasive surgical procedure that moves individual hair follicles from one part of the body that is called the donor site to a bald or balding part of the body that is known as the recipient site. This procedure is commonly used to treat male pattern baldness. The Follicular Unit Extraction involves the taking of grafts that contain hair follicles that are genetically resistant to balding. The donor area is often the rear or sides of the head and these grafts are then transplanted to the bald recipient part of the scalp. This amazing procedure can also used to restore eyelashes, eyebrows, beard hair, chest hair, pubic hair and to fill in scars that were caused by accidents or surgery such as face lifts and previous hair transplants. Follicular Unit Extraction and transplantation differs from skin grafting in that the grafts contain almost all of the epidermis and dermis surrounding the hair follicle, and many tiny grafts are transplanted rather than a single strip of skin.

Hair Transplants for Women.

Hair restoration surgery is considered a pretty good option for nearly 90% of men who are suffering from thinning hair or baldness, but what about women? When one thinks about a person losing their hair, a man usually springs to mind. If a women is seen with little or no hair, the assumption is that she has had chemotherapy, but women can lose their hair the same as men but unfortunately women generally do not make good candidates for hair transplant procedures.

Why Have a Hair Transplant.

We've all heard time and time again about how desirable and distinguished a man looks when his hair has gone. We also seem to be reminded on a daily basis that bald men have superior pulling power than men with a full head of hair, but is this true or just a myth put out there by bald people or others just attempting to be politically correct?
