Do men have it easier when it comes to looking after their personal appearance? A lot of women would definitely claim so. They don’t have to allocate a good solid hour to do their hair and makeup every morning (they could but they don’t have to), they don’t have to worry about the weekly de-fuzzing of leg and armpit hair, and they really don’t know or care about the difference between a manicure and pedicure.
However, men aren’t completely off the hook when it comes to image hang-ups. Ask any man about what he fears the most when it comes to his personal appearance, and we guarantee that the answer will include losing his hair. Yes – the dreaded hair loss.
Over 50% of men will suffer from male pattern baldness at some point in their life before they reach the age of 50. For many, the reality is that they will lose their hair a lot sooner than this. A lot of men are lucky to see 30 with a head full of luscious locks.
Should You Rush Into Surgery?
As real life cases have shown, hair transplant surgery should never be rushed into. Spencer, now 40, has admitted about being devastated after losing his hair at just 21. After trying every product available, he turned to hair transplant surgery. £30,000 down and 12 hair transplants later, his hair barely recovered even a little bit of what he lost.
He suggests that before turning to surgery, men should try products such as those that contain Finasteride and Minoxidil, as well as creams that contain E45.
However, for those seriously considering going under the knife, he says that there is one type of surgery that is better than all the rest – Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE).
DHI & FUE
The DHI Medical Group was the first company to introduce the Follicular Unit Extraction procedure back in 2002. This involves taking hairs from the back of the head, then moving them one by one to the front. It’s considered the best hair transplant method available throughout the country.
James Draper from London decided to undergo hair transplant surgery after suffering from balding around his temples. After a lot of research, James chose the DHI as he believed they offered the best possible results. He also liked that the surgery didn’t involve having to shave his whole head, something that a lot of other surgeries demand.
Several days later, he found himself spending 7 hours in the DHI clinic, in which 4,000 hairs were moved from the back of his head to the front. There were no stitches, he didn’t have to stay overnight, and he soon started to see the changes appear. Although it took a year to see the full benefits, it now looks better than ever – with zero scarring.
He said that although “Surgery is not for everyone” it can be “life changing in the right hands”
Whilst no one should rush into the procedure, it’s definitely worth researching transplant surgeons. Long standing companies like DHI are miles above the competition when it comes to high quality hair transplant procedures that really make a difference.
