Why Is Hair Transplantation the Hair Restoration Method of the Last Resort?

Every hair loss newbe starting to conduct his own research into the most effective hair loss treatments has got one thing in the back of his mind – to find a pill that would be harmless in terms of its potential side effects but effective in regrowing lost hair. Topical applications are less desirable due to discomfort of using them let alone hair transplantation. By the time he gets to the next stage of identifying the most suitable treatment he understands that a topical application would be a necessary component of any hair regrowth strategy. It is only after many hours of tedious hair loss research and disappointments with some ineffective treatments that he acknowledges the fact that hair transplantation is the only way of restoring his old glory naturally.

So let’s cut the long story short – why don’t we realise right away that the only way is the proven hard way. The best that the hair restoration science has to offer today are two FDA approved medications for maintaining and in some lucky individuals also regrowing some of their lost hair and hair transplantation. Hair transplantation or hair surgery is at the moment the only ultimate method of restoring lost hair due to the hereditary factors. Hair transplantation has many limitations though. It is not suitable for alopecia areata patients, it does not work too well for women who are usually suffering from diffuse form of hair loss and it is not suitable for patients who have thin hair in the back of their head. However, for the most male patients hair restoration, abstracting from the pain and the cost involved, is the ultimate hair restoration option available today as transplanted hair is permanent; it is your own genetic material and therefore looks natural and feels like your own. And it can cover your bald area in a few weeks, which no other permanent treatment can achieve.
