Hair loss is one of the things people hate to deal with. Unfortunately, not everyone is lucky enough to escape this problem. For those unfortunate people, hair loss would eventually hit them as they age with their scalps reacting to extraneous factors badly. To some, experiencing hair loss is an unavoidable event. However, those who are destined to end up being bald can now choose to avoid their inevitable fate. Thanks to modern technology and the gifts of science, a hair transplant can now be done to revive bring back your lost hair and once again bring them back to life.

For those who are still unaware of it, baldness occurs when the hair in an individual’s head partially or fully disappears. It is triggered by aging, genetics, and hormonal levels in one’s body. It may also be a side-effect of medical treatments such as chemotherapy. Excessive hairstyling procedures may also cause hair loss. Too much shampooing, blow-drying, and other chemical-based hair treatments could lead to permanent hair loss for some people. Both men and women may suffer from baldness. Stress and depression could also be a cause of hair loss.

Hair loss has several categories or classification. These classifications are generally based on the type of baldness, the affected area, and gender. For instance, male pattern baldness and female pattern baldness are generally not caused by the same factors. However, both can be solved by permanent hair transplant procedures.

Those who are suffering from androgenetic alopecia or male pattern baldness could take advantage of a hair transplant. This procedure is done when medical hair restoration is not suitable or offers no improvement. If you have significant and clear areas or patterns of baldness on the crown of your head but have healthy hair growth on the sides and back, then you are most likely a qualified candidate for a hair transplant procedure. The transplant surgery procedure is done by extracting hair from the back or side of the head, or both. The extracted hair will then be transplanted to the bald areas.

Hair transplant cost in the US averages from $4,000 – $9,000. For more serious cases, its cost can even go as high as $20,000. However, the cost of hair transplants varies from person to person due to the uniqueness of the cases and conditions. Basically, hair transplant costs in the US are determined by the number of follicle units that need to be transplanted.
