“Crowning glory” is more often associated with women’s hair, but it isn’t true that men aren’t proud of the hair on their head, too. They also comb it, brush it, prop it up, and comb it back to create a personal style. Like anyone else, men can be traumatized by losing that volume of hair during the early stages of adulthood.
When shampoos, creams, and other hair restoration methods all prove unsuccessful, the more resourceful males in Tijuana and surrounding areas resort to hair transplants in Mexico to regain their handsome mane. Before anything else, it would be good to understand why hair thinning occurs and if a hair transplant should be the automatic solution.
Why does hair thinning happen?
Many men are prone to male pattern baldness, which is caused by genetic disposition. As they age, hormonal changes in their bodies reject existing hair follicles, resulting in hair loss. Nutrition imbalance, stress, and poor hygiene may also contribute to falling hair.
Can I get a hair transplant?
A MensXP article states:
Even the sight of a tiny but naturally occurring bald spot can send a guy into a tizzy. All hope is not lost however as hair loss can be treated effectively. Hair transplants are becoming increasingly popular and the results, surprisingly, look very promising.
If hair transplant can solve your problems on a long-term basis, and you are under the age of 60, you can definitely try. You can’t be hasty, though. There are many factors to consider, so it is advisable to consult a prestigious center for hair restoration in Mexico, like the Baja Hair Center, which can assess your condition and give you the green light.
A question of geography, not quantity
Sometimes, it’s only a matter of location. It’s ironic how a lot of men have vast amounts of hair on parts of their body except their head, where it matters most to them. Hair transplant specialists have capitalized on this by literally transplanting hair from other locations on the patient’s body to the scalp. According to the article:
The most preferred method is called third generation Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE). Here, the hair from the back or side of the head is surgically removed and transplanted into the areas where the balding is prominent. Sometimes, a surgeon may also use ‘donor hair’ from the chest if needed.
Considerable healing time is necessary after a hair transplant procedure. After the swelling and tightness has subsided, the outcome is nothing short of dramatic. Where a bald spot used to be now sits a full patch of natural hair. Hair transplant side effects are very minimal and the results are long-lasting, making it a worthwhile effort.
