Hair Transplants; Will this Solve My Hair Loss Problems for Good?
Hair transplants are something men think of as a fix all to their hair loss problems, which is many instances provides them with a relaxed viewpoint about actually losing their hair.
This is unfortunate as the costs and time involved in undergoing hair transplants can be considerable, and not something to be taken on lightly. Many men think that hair transplants will be a quick fix to their problem, but the reality generally paints a much different picture. For a start hair transplants aren’t like ‘instant lawn’. You can’t just wake up one day after the surgical procedure and expect to have the head of hair you used to have.
Hair transplants (as many people tend to forget) involve surgical procedures, and as a consequence, there is always inherent risk associated with it. Often the results of a hair transplant can take many months to show, and of course there are always risks of complications that always go along with having any type of surgery. Notwithstanding that hair replacement procedures can also be very successful
Hair Transplants and Possible Complications
When contemplating hair transplant surgery as an option, you need to be sure you fully understand everything that can go right as well as all the things that go wrong. Your specialist, or clinic consultant should (if they are any good) explain fully everything that you need to know, including essential post-operative care, which would need to be followed to the letter of you want to have a positive final result
To be fully aware of the possibilities, you should have a reduced expectation of what the positive result might be, that way you will avoid disappointment in a worst case scenario. Also, you need to have a real understanding and awareness that possibly the transplant could go wrong, and it may actually exacerbate your baldness.
Always check the results and testimonials from the clinic and the surgeon who will be doing your transplant, including independent reviews of end users and their experiences, rather than just those from the clinic. The thing is, in the world, everyone is unique, just as we humans are all different, so there will be no two people alike when it comes to what works and what doesn’t. Hair restoration surgery on some people will prove very successful, and on others the grafts won’t take, and it could look worse than ever. These are just the risks you take
When deciding on whether or not to persevere with the procedure, it helps if your expectations are reasonable and you are willing to accept the associated cost involved as part of the process.
Hair Transplants -Surgery costs
The cost of hair transplants is as already mentioned very expensive. The cost often runs into the thousands, but is usually spread over a number of months, and is usually priced per graft, with hundreds of grafts often required at a time. Therefore the total likely cost will be dependent on the extent of your baldness, and the successfulness of your grafts. It is also highly unlikely that your insurance will cover the costs of hair replacement surgery
The full reality of hair transplants should be taken into consideration before agreeing to proceed. At the end of the day, the procedure isn’t guaranteed, so you pay your money and you take your chances. It really comes down to how important it is for you to regain a full head of hair. If you think the risk is worth it and a successful hair transplant will enhance your life, then go for it!
