What is the reason one undergoes hair transplant surgery?

For one important reason: appearance improvement!  Is the importance of appearance really that important?

You bet!  For many, reasons vary and are but not limited to:

  • To have a youthful and vigorous self-image
  • To look as good as one feel’s inside
  • To have better self-esteem in personal and business relationships

Physical conditioning, weight loss, and hair transplantation are for some part of a global makeover to improve one’s self-image.  If this is the case for you then nutrition plays an intricate roll in your mission.  Also, nutrition plays a roll in the potential of loss of newly transplanted hair.

A dietary regiment that is deficient in essential nutrients over a prolonged period of time can cause hair follicle cell malfunction. Consequently bringing about the interruption of normal hair cycling, weakness of new hair growth as well as temporary or permanent hair loss.

Having a balanced dietary regimen including the essential such as Iron, Zinc, Biotin as well as protein is important before and after any surgical procedure, especially if you’re considering permanent hair transplant surgery.

A person who is considering a dietary regimen for weight loss before and after hair transplant surgery should discuss this intention with their hair restoration surgeon. Weigh loss products that promise quick weight loss at the mercy nutrient depletion should be avoided at all causes, as well as diets that could cause hair loss should be avoided or monitored.
