Hair Loss Surgery

Hair loss surgery is usually the last thing that a person will do to stop their hair loss. Many men and women first investigate other forms of hair loss treatments such as pills, shampoos and serums.

Hair loss surgery is expensive (from $3,000 to $5,000) and with all surgical procedures there is a risk of infection and, of course, a risk that the procedure will not work.

Hair transplant

The hair transplant procedure works by taking segments of the scalp or grafts from healthy sections of your head and transplanting them to the balding areas. This surgery is usually done on an outpatient basis and it could take multiple sessions for it to be properly completed.

Each year there are around five million hair transplant surgeries. To be qualified you will have to have healthy hair growth on the back of your head or the sides of your head. You should also make certain that the doctor performing the hair transplant is experienced and trained in the procedure. Always review the doctor's credentials.

Laser hair loss treatment 

Laser hair loss treatment works by delivering “light” energy to your scalp and hair follicles. It improves the blood flow in your scalp and may induce hair to grow. It is also said to improve the vitality of the hair that remains, thus giving your scalp a fuller and healthier look.

Laser hair loss treatment has been used in combination with other medications such as minoxidil and an improved scalp hygiene regimen. The laser hair loss treatment can be done by a professional in an office or at home using a laser comb, which is referred to as low-level laser therapy. Either way you will have to go through a series of treatments and the laser comb is something that you will probably have to incorporate into your daily routine.

Like many hair loss procedures, laser hair loss treatments are expensive and may or may not work for you.
