Hair loss affects about half of the male population throughout the world and many women also experience hair loss. The reasons are wide and varied; from health related conditions, side effects of chemotherapy treatment and aging being the primary reasons.

While it may not bother or embarrass some; there are people who experience a dramatic stunt in their confidence levels and even experience psychological problems. For some it is sufficient to adapt a new haircut or hairstyle, others are happy to wear a wig; but for some, it is simply too much to have to cope with, and they look into the procedure of having hair transplants.

If balding is simply not an option for you, then hair transplants for women and hair transplant for men could be an answer for you. Although men are known to bald more than women, some women do experience baldness too. It will really depend upon the reason for an individuals’ hair loss to determine whether or not they will be a suitable candidate for a hair transplant procedure.

It is worth noting that it is simply not enough of a valid reason to want to go through the procedure of having hair transplants because of hair loss. The reason behind the hair loss must be established first. It could be related to something like hormone imbalances in which case recommendations from a dermatologist would be better suited to your treatment needs. If your hair loss is related to a condition such as alopecia, then hair transplant surgery may be a suitable option for you.

Hair transplants in its’ simplest terms is the moving about of hair from areas in the head where hair is in more abundance and placing it into the areas where hair is lacking. Rest assured that the process is carried out artistically and professionally; it is often impossible to tell when someone has had hair transplants because of this. It is extremely important that patients are aware of the hair transplant procedures before diving in and making a decision to go ahead with it.

Hair transplants can be carried out in the early days of hair loss or in the more advanced stages of baldness. Hair transplant procedures are one of the most effective permanent resolutions to hair loss, regardless of the reason behind the hair loss.

Hair transplant facilities are generally known as hair transplant or hair restoration clinics. They are extremely high tech, scrupulously clean and offer the highest standards of care to their patients.

During the hair transplant surgery, patients are made to feel at ease and are usually permitted to watch television or listen to music throughout, in a comfortable environment. At times where the patient experiences pain, they are usually offered mild pain killers but are under a local anesthetic throughout the surgery itself.

Hair transplant costs will vary from clinic to clinic and country to country, however, it is worth noting that this type of procedure does not come cheap. It costs several thousands of dollars to be done properly. It would be wise to research the facilities available to you and to have a personal consultation with a couple of clinics before making your final decision.

As with many post operative procedures, hair transplant surgery does require a certain amount of hair transplant care. Extra care and gentleness in handling the hair is necessary after the first 24 or so hours after the surgery. Generally you would be advised not to wash your hair within the first three days following surgery. You would need to avoid the use of all hot hair treatments such as hair dryers and irons/curling tongs until your clinic advises you that it is safe to do so.
