According to the ISHRS report, the hair restoration market worldwide has grown an amazing 64% between 2014 and 2017! Between 2014 and 2016 alone, their, the industry was estimated at $2.5 billion, reaching a total of up to 4.1 billion.
So, what is the reason for this massive rise in the popularity of hair transplant surgery? There is no single correct answer. Instead, several medical, technology and cultural factors have come to an end.
Cutting Edge Technology
Today, the most common hair restoration procedures are the follicular unit excision (FUE) and the follicular unit transplant (FUT).
Basically, both procedures harvest hair follicular from a donor area of your scalp. (An area where those suffering from male-pattern baldness don’t lose hair) Then these follicles are transplanted into thousands of tiny incisions into balding areas of the scalp.
More Natural Results
If patients choose a great hair restoration team, nobody will know they weren’t born with a full, lush mane. Now that word is getting out that hair transplants look not just good, but amazing, more guys are eager to explore the procedures themselves.
Whether we like it or not, our society loves following the rich and famous. As men see respected celebrities admit to undergoing cosmetic surgery and rave about the results, they’re inclined to consider undergoing the procedure themselves.
Permanent, Long Lasting Result
Hair restoration patients use their own, natural hair to create lifelong results. Aside from minimal pain during and after the procedure, along with temporary swelling or bruising, recovery from a hair transplant procedure is very predictable with minimal complications when performed by a skilled surgeon. Once the new grafts start growing, men can expect to keep growing their hair for a lifetime, with no compromises.
Our hair defines us like no other part of the body. It’s an integral piece of our personality, our self- expression and just-ourselves. Although some men do happily embrace baldness, it’s devastating for many others. By losing their hair, many men feel like their losing their youth, their sexuality and not surprisingly, their self-esteem.
Now, more men are accepting the fact that having more hair does make them feel better about themselves. So why not act- and take back their self-esteem.
