If your hair isn’t as thick as it used to be, you’ve probably been spending some time online, looking for solutions.
Hair transplantation has become a popular hair restoration option for both men and women but if you’ve been doing some reading about this procedure, you’ve more than likely come across a few myths.
9 Common hair transplantation myths
These are a few of the most common hair transplant myths that you simply have to stop believing.
Myth 1: Hair transplantation should be done while you’re still young.
In this case, prevention is not better than the cure. There are some who believe that it’s best to pursue hair transplantation before your hairline starts receding but this isn’t necessarily true. Hair loss patterns are difficult to predict in younger men so surgeons won’t be able to provide you with a truly effective solution.
Myth 2: You’ll see instant results.
Your hair will not simply start growing after your procedure. Patients can expect to wait up to 12 months before they’ll see the results they’re hoping for so don’t panic if you don’t see results within a few months. Your hair will grow gradually so you’ll need to be patient.
Myth 3: Hair transplants are obvious
Hair transplants have a bad rap because older technology wasn’t advanced enough to provide patients with natural-looking results. Hair transplant technology has come a long way since then though and once your new hair starts growing, it will follow your natural hair pattern.
