When it comes to male hair on the head, for 80% of people in the UK it is one of the most sensitive subjects as age sets in. Hair thinning and loss can be one of the major reasons for low mood and depression and dealing with such event is hard to overcome. Especially in the presence of friends and family or even work colleagues. Not only can loss of hair result in low self esteem but men can often dislike the way they begin to look in the mirror as balding gets worse.
“I’m disgusted by my hair loss”
Men over the years have tried all kinds of methods from creams to hippo fat to solutions made of urine from animals. However, the reality is that nothing will work or come close to a surgical procedure. One of the solutions that men in the UK are being made aware of to combat their unavoidable bald head is hair transplant. What’s more is that it is more common than you think.
When a man is told about hair transplants, particularly those who are younger, they are often very nervous about the thought of it because of the taboo around the subject and potential scars on the head from surgery. However, compared to strip procedures, FUE (follicular unit extraction) avoids a scar as the harvested grafts are done so one at a time with a small process that heals unnoticeable.
With the advances in science and technology, gone are the days where a transplant of your hair is easily identifiable. Men who have had transplants now look more natural than ever before, compared with years ago when methods were still being experimented with.
