If you’re considering a transplant procedure, it’s normal to wonder how others might react to your new look. What might friends, family or co-workers say? Would they say anything? Would they notice? What if they notice but don’t say anything for fear of offending you?
In Celebration of National Hair Loss Awareness: Stepping Back Through the History of Hair Transplantation
August 2017 might be “history,” but at Limmer HTC, it’s never too late to celebrate National Hair Loss Awareness month. This week, we’re stepping back through the history of hair transplantation and restoration. We couldn’t be prouder that our founder, Dr. Bobby L. Limmer (pictured above, center), played a pioneering role in the story of modern hair transplantation techniques.
At the first sign of thinning or after years of dealing with baldness, many men take to the internet to research restoration options.
First, visit your dermatologist (a better option than your PCP for hair loss), to find out if the problem is rooted in genetics or something else. Your next step is a hair restoration specialist.
Suppose you have a close friend who recently underwent a hair transplant procedure. We’ll call him ‘Bob.’ Bob told you beforehand about his hair transplant. You see Bob often, and a few months after his procedure, you still don’t perceive any difference in his hair. You’re starting to wonder if Bob’s results were worth the hassle and expense.
Many prospective hair transplant patients want to know the level of risk involved with a hair transplant procedure. It’s a good question. So just how risky is hair transplant surgery? The short answer is that, compared to other types of surgical procedures, hair transplant surgery carries relatively low risk. Since the procedure is done while you’re awake and the post-operative period is very predictable, the risk is minimal.
