Here are a few things every patient should know about hair transplants.

What are the common hair transplant myths?

Before a patient commits to having a hair transplant surgery, it is essential for them to have all of the information available to them. This will allow the person to make a well-informed decision as to whether or not they even want to have the procedure done, and what they can expect after the procedure is has been completed and everything has healed up.

There is all kinds of misinformation out there regarding hair transplants and what the ultimate effects of the surgery will be. Of course, every experience will be different for various patients, depending on their individual circumstances. There are, however, some generalizations that should be cleared up for anybody who is thinking of going under the knife in the near future.

Here are a few of the myths that should not be taken into consideration:

  • Hair transplants use fake hair and are unnatural. Hair transplants use your own natural hair. A well done artistically executed hair transplant gives you back your hair and is completely undetectable.
  • It is better to have a hair transplant at the first sign of hair loss. In fact, just the opposite is true — a hair transplant has a greater chance of success once the hair loss has progressed to a certain point. When hair loss begins at an early age, the pattern is unpredictable and the permanency of a donor area cannot be determined.
