Hair restoration surgery, like any elective surgical procedure, should not be taken lightly. While today’s ultra-refined surgical hair transplant procedures can produce amazing transformations in balding men and women when performed by a skilled and experienced surgeon and highly trained staff, there are many factors involved that must be carefully considered prior to scheduling your appointment. The Hair Transplant Network is dedicated to helping hair loss sufferers make informed decisions regarding both surgical and non-surgical treatment options and offers a wealth of information for the novice and seasoned hair transplant veteran alike.
Because there is so much information available off and online, it can be truly overwhelming to the neophyte hair loss sufferer. So where can you begin? Generally, men and women suffering from hair loss are advised to consult a dermatologist to rule out the possibility of non-genetic factors and determine if they are suffering from Androgenic Alopecia (genetic balding). Those with the dreaded balding gene have several options.
Lots of balding guys and gals have heard about hair transplant surgery and often believe that surgery is the only solution to their hair loss blues. However, not everyone is a candidate for surgical hair restoration and some patients may find non-surgical treatments are a better option. Make your first stop along the road to follicular enlightenment at The Hair Loss Learning Center. Begin your education by learning about the benefits of the only proven and FDA approved treatments like Rogaine (minoxidil) and Propecia (finasteride). You are also encouraged to to explore other options including alternative and future treatments.
For men and women with advanced balding patterns, hair transplant surgery may be an option worth considering.
