This stark financial difference – and the prospect of regaining a fulsome quiff or lustrous crown – is ultimately what drives thousands of men each year to become transplant tourists. Ibrahim is no different. As he puts it: “Why would I go to Harley Street compared to this price?”
Advantages of a hair transplant over temporary treatments
OCEANSIDE — Once you’re afflicted with hair loss, its progression is inevitable. When considering treatment, it’s important to recognize that only a few pharmacological treatments are available that may restore some hair loss. Hair restoration, on the other hand, is a permanent solution to a problem that otherwise will continue.
“Pharmacological treatments need to be taken continuously and once the medication is stopped, any hair that has grown in will be gradually lost once again,” Dan Wagner, CEO of MyHairTransplantMD, said. “One of the main benefits of a hair transplant procedure is that it requires no maintenance once the procedure is completed. Transplanted hair literally grows like regular hair, so you will not have to use any kind of special chemicals on an ongoing basis.”
Wagner said it is important to note that hair restoration is a one-day process. “Unlike most topical treatments for balding issues, a hair transplant procedure offers the most reliable and permanent solution,” he said
While medication for hair loss can be effective, it’s simply a temporary quick-fix. The specialists at MyHairTransplantMD work exclusively in hair restoration procedures making them an obvious choice to not only restore your hair, but your confidence.
“When we look our best, we feel our best and our most confident, so it just makes sense to find a permanent solution to an issue that, for many, gets in the way of that,” Wagner said. Recognizing that life can be hectic, a zero-maintenance solution with minimal downtime to permanently do away with baldness is optimal.
“Tremendous advances have been made in hair restoration, and at MyHairTransplantMD we offer Follicular Unit Extraction, or FUE,” Wagner said. “Previously only Follicular Unit Grafting, or the FUG method, was available in which long thin strips of scalp are extracted. Now we have FUE, which has a multitude of benefits including the absence of a scar line, fast healing and minimal discomfort.” While both methods achieve natural-looking results, they differ in the way the hairs are extracted.
