Hair Surgery

Awinita Smith

Because of significant surgical advances with improved results, interest in hair replacement surgery has increased significantly during the past decade. Hair loss affects two out of every three men, and one in five women. Some people begin to lose hair in their twenties. Frequent shampooing, poor circulation, wearing hats or any other personal habits are not factors that cause hair loss. For men, heredity is the major factor in hair loss. For women, hormonal changes, including those that occur in menopause, are mainly responsible for female "pattern changes," which include thinning and loss. Accidents, burns, and disease can also trigger hair loss.

If you are suffering from hair loss the following options are now available to you:
•Hair Replacement Surgery
•Hair Integration Systems
•Non-Surgical Hair Replacement
•Laser Hair Replacement
•Female Hair Replacement
•Hormone Replacement
As you well know hair replacement options come in many different forms. These can range from non-surgical hair replacement techniques like hair systems, laser hair replacement and hair replacement pills.

Then there is the surgical method of hair replacement. This is usually in the form of hair grafts or implants.

Propecia has been heralded as a miracle in the hair replacement industry. Propecia claims that it wills all 90% of men to keep all of the hair that they have and that 66% of men grow some of their hair back after treatment.

A monthly dose of Propecia usually costs around $100, and that is at one pill per day. Spread over the course of a year this is $1,200.

Before deciding on hair replacement surgery, ask your facial plastic surgeon to explain the options available for your particular type of hair loss.

Generally hair replacement surgery is a quick and simple procedure that can be done in a matter of hours and for which the patient is completely awake for. Of course a local anesthetic is used to numb the top of the head so the patent feels no pain as the procedure is being done.
If you are not interested in having major surgery and as for the pills; some people just don't want to take a drug everyday to maintain their hair.
There is a middle road, and that is laser hair replacement. The treatment is a very simple process. A micro-laser probes the hair follicles and stimulates the blood flow in the scalp, thus energizing the hair and allowing your hair to live another day.

Laser hair replacement is also relatively inexpensive. It can cost anywhere between $1,500 and $3,000 a year and requires monthly visits. These visits are painless and they are very short, it's barely an inconvenience in your life.
