Millions of men suffer the embarrassment and stress of hair loss.Â If you are one of them then you know how frustrating it can be to wade through all the hype and baloney to find out what really works to re-grow your hair.Â It seems like everybody has a new therapy or treatment that they claim will get a full head of hair growing once again.Â You have probably tried some of these and found they really don’t live up to their claims.Â In fact, the majority of them do nothing what so ever to actually get hair growing on the bald spot.
The one procedure I have found that works great for treating bald patches on the scalp is hair implantation.Â Hair implants, or hair plugs as they used to be called, are actually living hair units which are removed from one area of the scalp or body and then transplanted into the scalp where the hair loss has occurred.Â Within a few weeks the follicles of the hair units have actually started to bond with the surrounding blood vessels and received both nutrients and oxygen.Â The follicles can then start producing hair shaft material and they will continue to grow hair for years to come.
The question becomes how good do the implants look and can other people tell they are not natural occurring hair shafts.Â Historically this procedure did provide a result that was very noticeable.Â In fact, the nickname hair plugs came about because of how the implants looked on the patient’s head.Â When this procedure was first being used micro-surgical techniques were not available so the surgeon was forced to work with large groups of hair units in clumps.Â When these were transplanted in the scalp the results looked like a cheap doll’s head with the artificial hairs plugged into a few places on the head.Â The hairs grew in every which way and were very noticeable.
With the current techniques available to cosmetic surgeons this has all changed.Â Now a doctor can remove and insert individual hair units.Â He or she can also place them so they grow in the same direction of the surrounding hairs.Â This placement, along with the fact that the hairs are the patient’s naturally occurring units, provides a result that is all but unnoticeable.Â There are probably men you see everyday who have had the surgery but you don’t know it because the results are so natural looking.
