More and more men are giving importance to their looks. For instance, they concentrate more on their hairstyles and always want to look their best. But due to pollution, food habits, busy life, and improper sleep, they are experiencing hair loss at a young age. The internet is full of misleading hair transplant myths, and the facts are unavailable. This is the biggest reason why most of us have false notions about hair transplant surgeries. This blog will tell you the myths and facts about hair loss in young men and hair transplants.
Myth-Hair transplant gives you results instantly
Fact: The hair doesn’t grow overnight. After the procedure, it depends on the patient’s recovery rate. Few people recover at a fast pace, and few take time. Overall it would take four to 6 weeks, max 12 months, to show up complete results successfully. After the surgery, it’s very normal for hair to fall, and then the newly implanted hair follicle starts growing which looks natural. The truth is that before undergoing a hair transplant, clarify all the myths before making a decision.
Myth-Hair transplant is a very painful procedure
Fact: It’s a relatively painless medical procedure, as it’s done under local anaesthesia, which means only the surgical area is made numb and the patient is fully conscious. The surgeon prescribes medicines for pain relief for 2 to 3 days after the surgery. In the latest Follicular Unit Extraction(FUE), the hair follicles are extracted from the donor area and transplanted to the recipient’s site. As the insertions are 0.7-0.8mm, the recovery rate is a fast pace, and hence the painkillers given to the patients are minimal.
Myth- Only men benefit from Hair Transplant
Fact: The hair transplant is not only for men. It’s also for women. Men face baldness, whereas women face hair thinning issues. Hair transplant is irrelevant to gender, hair transplant can only be done at the age of 25 as the hair fall gets reduced, and it would be easy to study the hairline pattern of the patient.
Myth-Only rich people can afford it
Fact: There’s a myth that only rich people can afford to do hair transplants. NO. The cost depends on the number of sessions and the area of baldness to be covered. Depending on the grafting process, it takes about 6 to 8 hours per secession—the surgeon advises their patients on which procedure is best suitable for hair transplant after studying their hairline pattern.
Myth-Results are temporary
Fact: The results of hair transplants are long-lasting thanks to the latest techniques like FUE. The person should take proper care during post and pre-surgery. Then, after about a week, the person is free to get into their daily routine work.
Myth-Hair transplant is only for young people
Fact: Men are indeed facing balding issues from a very young age, but that doesn’t mean it is restricted to only young men. Women and the elderly up to 75 years of age can also undergo a hair transplant. If their donor hair quality is healthy, they can experience a natural-looking hairline after the surgery.
Myth-Results are not natural
Fact: The result looks so natural that it becomes difficult for people to know that the person has undergone a hair transplant. It’s just a matter of time as it takes 12 months to complete recovery and lead a normal life.
Myth-Large grafts will produce more density
Fact: It’s a wrong myth that large grafts produce more dense hair. The surgeon takes the hair from the back side of the head and implants them in the bald area. The density of the hair depends on the number of grafts transplanted, and not on the size of the grafts. Larger grafts may result in unnatural-looking hair.
Myth-Hair transplant doesn’t work for women
Fact: Hair transplant is not only for men. It’s also for women as well. Hair transplant works effectively for both men and women. Baldness in women is different from that of men. Women usually have thinning hair.
Myth-Hair transplant surgery can affect your brain
Fact: The procedure does not come in close contact with any part of the brain and thus can not have any impact on the brain. The hair transplant restoration is only skin deep. In this procedure, only the scalp of the skin is involved and does not penetrate the surface.
Myth- Elders should not undergo a hair transplant
Fact: Age is not at all a major factor for hair transplant surgery. The success rate for a hair transplant is higher for the elderly. The hair fall pattern is unpredictable at a younger age. Whereas in old age the hair fall settles and the bald area is fixed. A well-experienced surgeon will thoroughly check the donor area, check if the new hair will grow after the treatment, and match the texture and quality of the existing hair.
