Feeling Discouraged About Your Hair Loss?
Approximately 70% of men and 50% of women in North America will experience some sort of hair loss during their lifetime. Scalp hair loss is more than just a medical problem because it also frequently affects the well-being and self-esteem of the individual. Hair is an important part of who we are, how we project ourselves to others, and how we are perceived by others. Just as areas of the body that have too much hair are troublesome and therefore treated with temporary or permanent methods of removal, too little scalp hair is also of significant concern.
Why Hair Transplantation?
One of the most common reasons for men and women to consider hair restoration is to regain the confidence and more youthful appearance they had when they had more hair.
Losing your hair can be a traumatic experience. Researchers have shown that around 80% of bald men are preoccupied about their hair loss, and men who begin to lose their hair in their early 20s are more likely to suffer from extremely low self-esteem.
Hair loss can be perceived as a sign of old age, unattractiveness, and infertility. Even for individuals whose hair loss begins later in life, clinical studies have repeatedly shown that the condition causes low self-esteem and low self-confidence.
It is well established that low self esteem, self image and self confidence can have profound effects on a person’s overall health. Our experience is that after a hair restoration procedure, patients develop a significant improvement is self-esteem and self-confidence. This can affect all areas of their life including success in school, work or in personal relationships.
When one is perceived as being “youth oriented” in their appearance, there is an associated perception of a commitment to psychological and physical well-being. Commitment to these positive values is often seen as a positive character trait in social as well as professional or work relationships.
