Debunking Hair Myths: Hair Transplant Isn’t Exclusive to Old People

One of the common misconceptions is that hair loss only happens to older people (those who are above their thirties or forties). This, of course, is far from the truth. Hair loss may occur as early as the teenage years for some people. Hair loss only becomes more common with the older folks, but to say that the young is safe from it is absolutely false. It has been reported that more and more teens are now having hair transplant procedures in order to battle early hair loss. The popularity of the procedure among the younger generation is attributed to the growing “selfie” trend, with people encouraged to actively document their lives by taking pictures of themselves.

Most causes of hair loss, like too much hair bleaching or dye jobs, or styling the hair with tight braids and hair ties, can be altered to gradually get rid of the problem. In other causes, like pregnancy and chemotherapy, hair regrowth normally happens after. There are some factors, however, that you cannot control or those that are difficult to resolve, which would urge you to get hair transplants.

3 Things You Should Know About Baldness Before Your Hair Transplant

Unlike some people, such as the Maroon 5 front man and internationally known rock star Adam Levine, losing hair is not a choice for millions of American men. By age 35, you can experience some hair thinning, and in your 50s, you could start noticing severely sparse distribution of your locks or even see some bald spots. It’s not a drastic and cool hair makeover, but a drastic and possibly depressing change to your appearance. One solution that can restore the appearance of your head is hair transplantation, where grafts will be taken from your healthy “hair zones” and transferred to the balding areas. The procedure gives natural-looking results because of how it is done and where the transplanted hairs are taken. Most people who undergo the surgery regain the fullness and volume of their hair.
