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.
Hair transplant surgery is a great way to revive that lush and full head of hair you had when you were younger, but a lot of people still have reservations about it.
While it is less invasive that most other plastic surgery procedures, hair transplants still require cuts made into the scalp, which can cause people to be concerned about the pain.
We get asked a lot of questions regarding hair transplant procedures, and what you can and can’t do after receiving one. As with most surgical procedures, people are looking forward to when they can get back to living a normal life, so questions regarding the recovery period come up often.
One of the first things that our hair transplant recipients can’t wait to do after undergoing the procedure is style their new hair. That desire to take advantage of the full head of hair you have been missing is totally understandable, but should you be using styling products or hair dye after you undergo a hair transplant procedure?
As hair transplants continue to advance, the recovery process associated with the procedure has also improved. The new techniques and technology used in hair transplant procedures are less invasive than methods used in the past, which means less incisions, less scarring, and less time to recover.
When talking about hair transplants there is a lot that people don’t understand. The word “transplant” sometimes makes people believe that we can take hair from another person’s head and place it on their own, but that’s not really possible. It also leads to people thinking that transplants can be done on anyone, regardless of how much hair you have left on your scalp. This is also not true.
When you begin to notice your hair thinning or your hairline receding, one of the first things people wonder is how much hair they are going to lose and how fast is it going to happen. Unfortunately, these questions are hard to answer as most of the time hair loss is genetic and it can’t always be predicted.
