When considering getting a hair transplant, you might come across information about the procedure from several sources, and some of them will be myths. In order to avoid getting distracted with these myths and not getting the full truth, here are a few myths that you might read or hear about hair transplants.
- Hair transplants are costly
Hair transplantation is not costly when you look at the long term benefits of them. Once you get hair transplant done, it is permanent. In fact, having a hair transplant can be cheaper than taking medication for years in order to keep and regrow hair.
- Hair transplant looks obvious
Previously one can easily determine if someone had hair plugs fixed into their scalp. But, now with the new techniques, it is very difficult to tell if someone has gone through hair transplant procedure.
- The results are not permanent
The results of transplant are permanent and you can have the benefit of hair regrowth for the rest of your life.
- You must get it done as soon as your baldness starts
It is not true. Researches show that it is better to wait until a pattern develops. This helps doctors in determining which hair is more likely to be good candidates for transplant.
- The procedure is painful
Previously hair transplant was painful. But, now with the FUE or Follicular Unit Extraction method amazing results can be achieved without any cuts and stitches.
- Everyone can undergo hair transplant
It is not true. Firstly, you need a suitable hair donor area that has enough hair to be grafted. Secondly, a healthy scalp is essential.
- Can someone else’s hair be used in the process?
No, in this procedure healthy hair is transplanted from one part of the scalp to the area that is losing hair. The hair continues to grow in its new place and you get a head full of hair.
- A transplant is reversible
Hair transplantation is not reversible without going through a number of surgeries and why anyone would want to reverse it? Remove awesome looking hair? You don’t have to worry about losing hair anyway. They are there to stay.
- Hair transplants require maintenance
Transplants unlike your normal hair are not at all maintenance intensive. Treat them like your normal hair.
- Hair transplants can fall off
Transplants don’t fall off. As it is a surgical procedure, the hair grafts are surgically fixed in to the scalp, as a result, they are permanent.
