Long hair or curly hair comes with its share of problems, but none of them are as annoying as matting. That feeling when your hair gets clumped and tangled together in a way that makes it painful to try and brush out is just one of the worst feelings in the world.
Have you ever gotten out of the shower, dried your hair and still found that your hair feels almost waxy to the touch? You’re not alone.
Typically, when we’re talking about hair we’re talking about unwanted hair loss and what you can do to help prevent it or restore it. In this case, however, we wanted to take a look at the other end of the spectrum, removing unwanted hair.
Even though hair transplant surgeries may not be as invasive as other cosmetic surgeries, you always run the risks of side effects. Any time you cut into the skin to perform an operation there’s a chance that the wound could become infected, no matter how small. So, while the areas where hair follicles were excised from and placed into the scalp are small, there is still a chance of infection after a hair transplant.
Hair transplant surgery is a great way to restore hair that you have lost over the years due to genetics or aging, but sometimes surgery isn’t always the answer.
There are plenty of positives about getting a hair transplant, in most cases it’s very successful, it can boost your self-esteem, it’s relatively painless, and the recovery process is much easier to deal with than other types of cosmetic surgery.
Hair transplants have come a long way since they were first performed for male pattern baldness in the early 1950’s. Technology has advanced and the methods in which the hair follicles are excised and implanted have changed.
Hair transplants, like a lot of cosmetic plastic surgeries, require a skilled doctor performing the procedure to make it look as natural as possible, but there are a lot of reasons why hair transplants performed today tend to look better and more natural than in the past.
Hair transplant procedures have become extremely popular over the last decade and is estimated to grow by another 9.9 billion USD from 2021 to 2026. In 2022 alone, predictions are that the hair transplant market will grow upwards of 8% from where it was in 2021.
The growth within the hair transplant market just goes to show that as technology and procedures improve, more and more people are trusting doctors and surgeons to restore their hair in ways that weren’t possible before.
