Most anyone you talk to will know what a hair transplant is. This alone is a pretty solid indicator of its popularity, but what speaks even clearer are the statistics. The demand for a hair transplant in New York and all over the world rises every year. According to the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery (ISHRS), from 2006 to 2014, the popularity of hair restoration surgeries increased by 76% percent. So, if anyone is feeling too embarrassed to seek a remedy for their balding, they should consider that it is far more common than they think. With such continued popularity, it makes sense that various myths have grown up around hair transplants. These myths often serve as deterrents, and dispelling them can be the first step to seeking your own hair restoration.

For instance, you may have heard that it is better to have the procedure done early on. The reasoning for this includes claims that a hair transplant takes better when the patient is young, and that starting before the hair loss advances will make it less noticeable. The truth is that older patients are considered ideal for the procedure. What’s more, having it done before you need it simply doesn’t make sense. Not only would it be a waste of time and money, it could even accelerate your hair loss. When it comes to the procedure itself, many believe that laser hair transplants are considered state of the art, and the best option. In fact, the use of a laser is problematic since it can burn and damage the transplant site.

Perhaps the biggest myth is that anyone undergoing this procedure does so because of other people. The choice should be made for the patient’s benefit alone, whether it means perfecting their look or renewing their self-esteem. Look beyond the myths, and seek your hair transplant in New York.
