Hair loss may seem like a trivial health concern but for those who suffer from it, it is both physically and emotionally distressing.
The American Hair Loss Association (AHLA) website noted that, according to The Washington Post, Americans who suffer from hair loss spend more than $3.5 billion a year in hair loss treatments. This figure is indicative of the gravity of the situation. Most of the time, people just take for granted a thick head of hair until it starts to disappear.
For those suffering from hair loss, hair restoration or hair transplant is a common and effective option to restore confidence and improve appearance.
Hair transplant, according to WebMD, is a “surgery that involves removing a narrow strip of hair-bearing scalp from the back of the head and using it to fill an area with thin or no hair.”
The experts at AHLA note that hair restoration surgery should be a last resort to stop the progression of hair loss. In addition, not everyone who thinks they need hair transplants is actually “qualified” for the procedure. Among other cases, the ideal candidates for hair restoration surgery are:
A hair transplant surgery generally involves the following procedures:
Within two to three weeks after surgery, patients can expect the transplanted hair to fall out and notice new growth within a couple of months.
WebMD estimates that the cost of hair restoration surgery largely depends on the amount of hair to be transplanted. Generally, it ranges from $4,000 to $15,000, and as with most cosmetic surgery procedures, it is rarely covered by insurance.
For prospective patients, an option would be to obtain loans for plastic surgery.
