What is the first thing you check when you’re in front of the mirror?
If you have answered “hair” then it’s the most common answer. Most people consider their hair as crowning glory and a symbol of beauty.
But what if you start seeing your hair strands here and there, clogging your bathroom sinks or on your pillow?
This can be considered as the first sign of hair loss.
But there is absolutely no need to panic. Hair fall among men and women is extremely common in India. A study conducted found out that around 58% of Indian men aged 25-50 suffered from various grades of alopecia (common name for hair loss).
Some of the factors that cause hair loss are:
Even though there’s no cure for male pattern baldness, there are over-the-counter, FDA approved medications that can slow down the hair loss.
NOTE: While the medications are effective, the results may not be maintained if the treatment is discontinued.
During the hair transplant procedure, the doctor will remove the hair follicles from the back and side of your head. The removed hair follicles are transplanted to the top of the head.
Most of the side effects associated with hair transplant last for around 1-3 weeks. Some of the common side effects are:
Hair transplant has more success rate than over -the-counter medications like Rogaine & Propecia. But people need to have realistic expectations before undergoing hair transplant.
