Facial hair transplants: Why men should not be so quick to get them

facial_hair_transplant.jpg

Hair transplants are nothing new. The procedure itself has been around for a very long time, helping men and women everywhere with balding issues. Surgery can last for hours, and recovery could last a few days, but it’s one of the most popular hair replacement techniques.

But there is a new trend on the rise, attributed to the “hipsters” of society who find solace in having a full beard: facial hair transplants.

We are quite sure now that the trend has bypassed the hipsters and carried onto the general male demographic. It’s become almost commonplace to desire not only having a beard, but also for others to desire a beard on their male lover. A quick glance at any red carpet will show you just that.

But why now? Why, after centuries and eras of men sporting beards, has it gotten to the point where men are rushing to get these transplants? For one, technological advances in this industry has made it more affordable to do so (a facial hair transplant costs about the same as a hair transplant, starting at $3,000 and depends greatly on your hair and needs.)

Also, the rise of startup businesses that go against the corporate schema, challenging the idea of how men should look while at work, has helped with the trend as well. It was considered taboo for men holding high positions at large companies to have beards, as many studies have shown that facial hair can send off the wrong message to people about a man’s personality and temperament.

But before you go out and get a facial hair transplant, you need to stop yourself, sit down for a bit, and entertain these few points:

  1. Like many trends, this too could die off. The reason why all want beards could be that it was so rare for a guy to sport a good one, so when the population of bearded men go on the rise, it could correlate to the decline of those desiring one. Would you really want to spend thousands of dollars for something that may or may not be ‘trendy’ in a few more years?
  2. You can’t hide your recovery period as well as normal hair transplant surgeries. You can conceal your head with a hat for days after surgery, but what would you use to hide your face? You could always try the beard beanie.
  3. Consider the real reasons why you want a fuller beard. Is it because you really want a beard (for a long time) and it gives you more confidence, or is it because you want to attract the attention of others? While a little vanity never hurts, think about whether you’re doing this for yourself or for others.

Solutions for Hair Loss as a Result of Alopecia

Alopecia areata is an autoimmune disease that results in the loss of hair. It occurs when your immune system accidentally attacks your hair follicles, although scientists to this day do not understand why. This disease affects almost 2% of the entire U.S. population and it happens more often to younger people, although anyone at any age and gender can be affected.

Alopecia is also cyclical, meaning hair can fall out and then regrow over time, and fall out again. Only a small percentage of people affected with alopecia may never regrow hair again, and that depends on a variety of cases, like family history, onset of the disease at a very early age, extreme hair loss, among other things. In some more extreme cases, loss of body hair may also occur. Please talk to a hair loss clinic to see if you may be susceptible to alopecia totalis.

The disease is diagnosed by a doctor through a series of questions inquiring about your family history and your own pattern of hair loss. A small physical examination may be required. If the diagnosis still remains unclear, then a blood or hair test may be employed.

While there is no cure yet for this disease, a number of people diagnosed with this have found inspirational ways to live a wonderful life. It’s understandable that a person losing their hair on and off again can be frustrating, and many people have reported feeling anger, loss and grief, among many others. But there are a variety of products, methods and hair replacement techniques to help those affected.
