What happens then when the beginning of a new year also coincides with the start of a new decade? Should our goals be even bigger? Should our desire to be our best selves be even stronger?
Fortunately, if you are looking for a way to look younger and more confident as this next first day of the year there are many options that are available. From getting the face lift that you have been contemplating to finding out the details about a hair transplant, there are many times when the new year provides the perfect motivation to be your very best self.
Hair Transplant Surgery Costs Are Often Worth the Investment
If you are someone who has suffered from thinning hair the las few years, now might be the time to consider the many ways that a hair transplant procedure can help you look your best, increase your confidence, and help you face the challenges of a new year. There are many ways that hair specialists can help their clients change the way that they look and the first impressions that they make.
One of the most recent kinds of advancements in the hair transplant industry is a process that can create an entirely new look for many people. A Follicular Unit Extraction or FUE hair transplant procedure is when individual follicular unit grafts, known as hair groupings of one to four hairs as they occur naturally in the scalp, are harvested one at a time using a tiny punch typically ranging from .7 to 1 millimeter in size. This literal planting of hair can create a much fuller head of hair in many individuals. The process itself takes around eight hours and healing time after an FUE hair transplant is dependent on skin type, but typically grafts take in a matter of days and the redness from the procedure settles in about four to five days.
In comparison, in addition to taking more time to recover from, FUSS is invasive, has a higher complication rate, leaves scar in back of the head, and limits graft harvesting due to pulling of scalp in future procedures. FUE, on the other hand, is often advantageous because it is minimally invasive, has a lower complication rate, does not leave large scars, and has a shorter recovery time. As another advantage, FUE patients can also shave or keep their hair short in the future.
The hair transplant industry continues to progress and expand because it is a platform for dealing with what is a common problem for many men. In fact, androgenetic alopecia, also known as common male pattern baldness (MPB), accounts for more than 95% of hair loss in men. In fact, In the U.S. alone, nearly 35 million men have some level of hair loss, baldness, or a combination of the two. More specifically, by the age of 35, as many as 66% of American men will experience some degree of appreciable hair loss; by the age of 50 approximately 85% of men have significantly thinning hair. Unfortunately, as many as 50% of a man’s head of hair will be gone before it becomes cosmetically visible.
The end of the year is a time for many kinds of celebrations with friends and family. From opening gifts with the grandkids to making sure that they are able to take a few days off work to visit with friends that you may not often get to connect with, the Christmas season is a time when many memories are mad and many photos are taken. If you are not happy with the pictures that are taken this holiday season then many maybe the new year is a time to change that. From losing weight to getting a full head of hair, now is the time to make a change!
New year, new you.
