John Capps, founder of Bald-Headed Men of America, had an interview carried over Huffington Post Live. He said his hair had started thinning at a “young age” and was all but gone when he finished school and was looking for work. One of his prospective employers, a finance company in Atlanta, declined his application due to corporate image issues with people with thinning hair on the team.
Some might roll their eyes on this kind of bias, but the fact remains that certain appearances could influence employment opportunities. For people in Baja California, visiting hair restoration facilities, like the Baja Hair Center, would be a good start in exploring opportunities and finding out how much a hair transplant in Mexico would cost.
Initial consultations with a hair transplant specialist is vital in determining the extent of hair thinning and what treatments or procedures would be most helpful.
Depending on the findings during consultation, the Dr. may recommend either a follicular unit extraction (FUE) or follicular unit transplant (FUT) method. He or she will also decide how far the grafting has to go. Both methods call for taking off individual grafts and putting them in the affected sections. If the patient’s case is a bit extreme, it may require up to 4,000 grafts or a mega session.
Seeing hair regrow in the critical parts of your head can do wonders to a jobseeker’s confidence level. In an LA Times interview, a parcel company driver said having much hair on top has reduced the odds of him getting intimidated in the presence of younger applicants. This is true as well for jobs that require personal interactions with customers or clients.
Every person with the right credentials should have an equal opportunity to get a job. The possibility of missing out on a potential income source due to physical issues is something you wouldn’t want to hear at this time, when the American employment market sounds promising. In April 2015 alone, more than 200,000 slots were filled across different industries, according to The Bureau of Labor Statistics.
If you’re thinking of having your hair concerns addressed, you don’t have to worry how much a Mexico hair transplant will cost. A Board Certified Dermatologist with a specialty in hair restoration, like Baja Hair Center’s Dr. Sara Lea Salas ,will make sure everything turns out fine and will improve your chances of being recommended for a new job AND improve your self esteem!
