Hair loss or hair thinning (alopecia) is a natural process, caused by heredity, hormones and age. Baldness occurs when the natural shedding of hair which occurs on a daily basis significantly exceeds hair growth.
There is a variety of surgical and non-surgical hair loss treatment options for conditions such as male pattern baldness and hair thinning, but hair transplant is the only permanent method of restoring hair. The principle of hair transplantation is to take strong hair follicles from the back and sides of the head and place them into the thinning or balding areas. This achieves a natural appearance of growth that is undetectable from the individual’s existing hair.
With the growing number of countries that offer hair loss treatments, people who need hair transplants are considering treatment abroad as a low cost option because prices for hair transplants are highly competitive. Bear in mind that you will need to find out about the standards and regulations in the country where you will be treated before you agree to surgery abroad.
