Footballers often receive a lot of media attention for their hair transplants. This leads some younger men to wonder if this type of treatment might be suitable for their own hair loss.
Male pattern baldness can kick in at any time during an adult man’s life, and some men begin to lose their hair when they are barely out of their teens. While the options for a younger man losing his hair used to be either shaving it all off, disguising the balding patch using a ponytail or a hat, or wearing a wig, there is now the option of a hair transplant.
A hair transplant uses your own healthy hair follicles. These are individually harvested and replaced back onto the head, where the hair is missing. Contrary to what some people believe, a hair transplant doesn’t involve putting another person’s hair follicles into your scalp. The body would reject these follicles and the operation wouldn’t work. Because your own follicles are used, the body accepts them and allows them to grow naturally in their new position.
If you are in your 20’s and experiencing baldness or thinning, then the chances are that there is plenty of healthy hair left on your head, which means you would be a good candidate for a hair transplant.
Men in their 20’s tend to be healthier than men in their 50’s and 60’s, and because a hair transplant is a type of cosmetic surgery, a man in generally good health is a good candidate for this type of surgery.
Cost can be a factor for younger men, who may not have savings or a job that allows them to budget for UK hair transplant prices. Budget-conscious men have started to look towards the hair transplant in Turkey for their procedures, which can be combined with a relaxing break that allows them to recover from the procedure, without breaking the bank. Some young men even take their wife or girlfriend with them, to enjoy some of the other cost-conscious procedures that Turkey has to offer. From Botox to breast implants. Despite the low prices, there are plenty of high-quality clinics to choose from.
