Do you feel self conscious and dissatisfied with your personal appearance due to suffering from hair loss? You are not alone. Wayne Rooney, Callum Best and Robbie Williams are just a few of the countless celebrities that have confessed to having a hair transplant in an effort to battle their baldness!
Losing your hair can be a hugely distressing thing to go through. Studies show that both men and women shed up to at least 100 hairs a day! Male pattern baldness affects a whopping 6.5 million men in the UK and is predominantly caused by an imbalance in the hormone DHT (Dihydrotestosterone) , which causes hair follicles to shrink and eventually stop functioning. Although DHT is the biggest contributor to baldness, there are other contributors to hair loss that affect both men and women, including:
- Physical stress
- Lack of protein
- Male pattern baldness
- Dramatic weight loss
So how can a hair transplant help?
Hair transplants are modern and highly advanced techniques which provide a permanent solution to hair loss. You don’t have to look further than a before and after shot of England footballer Wayne Rooney to see just how effective it can be! Mr Amir Nakhdjevani, a hair restoration specialist at Bella Vou cosmetic surgery outlines how the majority of hair transplants involve using a micro-dill under local anaesthetic for “Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE), which effectively transplants individual hair follicles from one part of the body to another, while preserving their growth physiology; meaning they are able to grow as they normally did within the area used.”
What are the benefits of having a hair transplant?
- Improved self esteem
- Improved appearance
- Natural look and appearance
- Fast Results
- Permanent solution to hairloss
If you are suffering from hair loss, fear not. Combovers, wigs and weaves are out and hair transplants are on the rise.
