Medical procedures like hair restoration in Mexico is considerably less expensive than in the U.S. The Costa Rica News answers why the country is a destination for health tourists, especially for Americans:
Private hospitals and clinics in Mexico boast cutting-edge facilities with modern operating rooms and intensive care units. Mexican doctors have been trained in international hospitals across the U.S. and are considered to be skilled physicians.
Americans have confidence in going to Mexico for medical procedures, especially for weight loss surgery, dentistry and cosmetic procedures. Moreover, American Spanish speakers have the luxury of understanding the language and feel comfortable in Mexico, no wonder Mexico is a popular destination for international patients from the U.S.
Prices for various medical treatments in Mexico are approximately 60% less than in the States. These figures make it an amazing saving for high quality medical procedures.
Statistics from the American Hair Loss Association reveal that by the age of 35, about two-thirds of American men is likely to have some degree of hair loss. In fact, about 85% of the male population by the age of 50 will experience thinning of hair. Unfortunately, it’s not just the men as the population of hair loss sufferers are 40% women. Despite the large numbers of people with hair loss problems, the number of possible treatments are more than enough to ensure that most cases can be addressed.
Hair Restoration in Mexico
Even with high-quality facilities, advanced technology, and procedures, the price of effective hair transplants in Mexico remains affordable. Hair transplants are mostly for patients with pattern baldness, genetic hair loss, scalp injuries, or any condition that results in permanent hair loss.
Treatment may also come in the form of topical solutions or certain medications. The treatment depends on the amount of hair the patient wants to restore. Therefore, established centers like the Baja Hair Center that cater to hair loss patients, provide various hair restoration options to their clients.
Importance of Hair Loss Treatment
Looks actually matter. Hair, being a component of beauty, is why patients seek treatment. The Chicago Tribune reported that hair loss or alopecia patients may experience psychological issues relating to self-esteem. Some patients even suffer from anxiety and depression.
With Mexico being one of the most accessible countries that provide several low-cost and effective medical procedures, more hair loss patients can gain back their confidence—and a thicker head of hair.
