Medical Tourism: Should I go to Turkey for a hair transplant?

Back to all articles Medical Tourism: Should I go to Turkey for a hair transplant? Medical tourism, a global phenomenon where individuals travel abroad for medical treatment, has been gaining popularity in recent years. While this trend can offer access to treatments at a potentially lower cost, clients should carefully weigh the disadvantages against the benefits and consider consulting with local healthcare professionals and travel experts before making a decision. Your decision regarding a hair transplant destination shouldn’t be rushed; it’s essential to weigh both the advantages and disadvantages carefully. When considering hair transplant surgery overseas, in places like Turkey, several drawbacks should be taken into account: https://youtu.be/FPhSGGIAh64 Overharvesting from Donor Site: Hair transplants involve two main areas: the recipient site (where hair is transplanted) and the donor site (typically the back and sides of the head). With Turkey’s FUE hair transplant technique there’s a risk of overharvesting hair from the donor area, which can lead to permanent damage and thinning of the donor site. This happens when more hair follicles are extracted than the donor area can safely support, compromising long-term hair health and potentially leaving unsatisfactory results due to poor-quality grafts. At We Grow Hair Indy, we have a  robotic hair transplant machine that adjusts every 60 seconds to harvest the grafts evenly across the donor site. The digital mapping of the donor area also ensures that the patient is left with a very natural look post procedure and is virtually undetectable that a hair transplant was performed. Excessive Density: While dense hair coverage might seem desirable, overcrowding hair grafts in one area can result in an unnatural appearance. This can also increase the risk of complications such as scarring and infections. Incorrect Graft Angles and Directions: Precision in transplanting hair follicles at the correct angles and directions is vital for natural-looking results. Inadequate attention to these details during surgery, as observed in Turkey, can result in transplanted hair growing in an irregular or mismatched pattern compared to natural hair, affecting overall aesthetic outcomes. Medical Education Standards Differ: In the United States in order to practice certain procedures, physicians have to be board certified, which comes after 3-5 years of being a resident. In Turkey, you only have to complete 6-9 months of residency training to practice medicine. Medical standards are set in place to ensure quality and care, which is something to highly consider as you are permanently altering your body. Poor Hairline Design: Achieving a natural and aesthetically pleasing hairline is crucial in hair transplant surgery. In Turkey, there have been instances of poorly designed hairlines, including unnatural shapes or incorrect angles, which can lead to an unsatisfactory appearance. This is particularly significant for men, as improper temple hair reconstruction can result in a ‘pluggy’ or overly straight hairline. At We Grow Hair Indy, our hairlines are drawn with medical precision and factor in many variables, including age, face shape, and your personal measurements. Many clinics in Turkey do not factor in future recession and loss when designing a hairline, meaning your transplanted hair will not naturally blend in with non-transplanted hair. Limited Follow-Up Care: Post-operative care and follow-up are critical for monitoring healing progress and addressing any complications. In Turkey, logistical challenges such as returning home shortly after surgery can hinder proper aftercare, potentially affecting recovery and final results. We Grow Hair Indy has an extensive year-long follow-up process that involves check-ins every few months with your consultant to make sure the results are what you want. Unrealistic Expectations: Managing expectations is essential in any cosmetic procedure, including hair transplants. Some clinics in Turkey may oversell potential results without fully educating clients on the realistic outcomes or risks involved. This can lead to dissatisfaction post-surgery when expected results do not align with reality, compounded by potential language barriers or misinformation. When looking into the Turkey FUE hair transplant trend, most of the viral videos are based around the experience of the travel and arrival, not the end result. Upselling: From the clients we have talked to that went to Turkey for a hair transplant, their experiences are similar in that the physicians will try to upsell once you are at their clinic. Since you’ve already made the journey, the sales teams in Turkey will offer other cosmetic procedures to tack on to your hair transplant as well as expensive medications to help boost your results that sometimes cost over $1000 every other month. Our team of physicians have already begun receiving our first round of “correction” hair transplant clients that have gone overseas and need additional work done to their hair after not receiving their desired results. We Grow Hair Indy is one of two hair restoration clinics in the Midwest to have the Multi-Unit Hair Grafting™ technique and the ARTAS system, making it a much safer stateside option with less risks and over 20 years of experience in the hair transplant industry.

Hair Graft from Hair Transplant

What is a hair graft?

Back to all articles What is a hair graft? How many hairs are in 1 hair graft? Hair Transplant FAQ’s Explained! When looking at the various hair restoration solutions available, there are many acronyms, phrases, and medical terms that could cause confusion or might not be fully understood by those who are in their first stage of research, or trying to understand the variety of solutions available. A commonly used term when discussing hair transplants is “hair graft”. A hair graft is a small, naturally occurring group of hair follicles that are removed from the scalp during a hair transplantation procedure. The process of creating a hair graft involves carefully extracting individual hair follicles or small groups of hair follicles from the donor site, and then transplanting them to the recipient site to restore hair growth in areas that have thinned or become bald. The types of methods to create hair grafts: There are two main methods for creating hair grafts: Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) and Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE). FUT, also known as Multi-Unit Hair Grafting™, involves removing hair-bearing skin from the scalp. The hair follicles are then divided into individual follicular units (which are groups of 1-4 hair follicles) under a microscope. These units are then transplanted to the recipient site. FUE, on the other hand, involves removing individual hair follicles directly from the scalp using a specialized tool. The extracted hair follicles are then transplanted to the recipient site. The choice of which method to use depends on the individual’s needs, the amount of hair to be transplanted, and the surgeon’s preference. It’s important to note that hair grafts are created to mimic the natural hair growth pattern, and they are transplanted in the same direction and angle as the surrounding hair. This results in a more natural-looking hairline. The composition of a hair graft can vary depending on the technique used for hair transplantation and the individual characteristics of the patient’s hair. Follicular Unit Grafts: Follicular unit grafts are comprised of one or more hair follicles grouped together in a naturally occurring cluster. These clusters typically contain between one to four individual hairs, although some follicular units may contain more under certain circumstances. Types of Follicular Unit Grafts: Single Hair Follicular Unit (1-Hair Graft): This type of follicular unit contains only one hair follicle. Single hair grafts are often used for creating a natural-looking hairline and for filling in sparse areas with precision. Double Hair Follicular Unit (2-Hair Graft): A double hair graft consists of two hair follicles closely grouped together. These grafts are commonly used to add density to areas of the scalp that require more coverage. Triple Hair Follicular Unit (3-Hair Graft): Triple hair grafts contain three hair follicles within a single cluster. They are utilized to provide even greater density and coverage in areas of significant hair loss. Multiple Hair Follicular Unit (4-Hair Graft): Less common but still encountered, a multiple hair graft contains four hair follicles clustered together. These grafts are reserved for areas where maximum coverage and density are required. To calculate the total number of hairs in a hair graft, one simply needs to count the individual hair follicles within the follicular unit. For example, a double hair follicular unit graft contains two hairs, a triple hair follicular unit contains three hairs, and so forth. Techniques such as Multi-Unit Hair Grafting™ (MUHG) , allow for the transplantation of hair follicles in their naturally occurring groupings, which are known as Multi-Unit Grafts (MUGs). This mimics the natural hair growth pattern, resulting in a more natural-looking hairline. We Grow Hair Indy offers Multi-Unit Hair Grafting™ in order to provide the best, most natural results in one procedure. Typically, only 20% of our patients end up getting a second procedure, and is mainly due to having a very large area that needs to be covered, or wanting even more density. To learn more about hair transplant procedures, watch this video of our VIP client Dave Furst on his procedure day: Overall, a hair graft is a small, naturally occurring group of hair follicles that are removed from the scalp during a hair transplantation procedure. There are two main methods for creating hair grafts: FUT and FUE. The choice of which method to use depends on the individual’s needs, the amount of hair to be transplanted, and the surgeon’s preference. With the right approach, hair grafts can help you achieve the head of hair you desire, and boost your confidence.

What is a Hair Transplant?

Back to all articles What is a Hair Transplant? A hair transplant is a surgical procedure that involves the removal of hair follicles from one area of the scalp (known as the “donor site”) and transplanting them to another area (the “recipient site”). This can be done to restore hair growth in areas that have thinned or become bald due to genetics, injury, or medical conditions. The most common technique used for hair transplants is called “follicular unit transplantation” (FUT), We Grow Hair Indy offers a more advanced and effective version called Multi-Unit Hair Grafting™. This involves removing hair from the back of the client’s head (donor site) and dividing it into individual follicular units (which are groups of 1-4 hair follicles). These units are then transplanted to the recipient site. Another technique called “follicular unit extraction” (FUE) involves removing individual hair follicles directly from the scalp, which are then transplanted to the recipient site. We Grow Hair Indy proudly offers the ARTAS Robotic FUE Hair Transplant, the most advanced FUE technology available. The procedure itself can take several hours, depending on the number of grafts being transplanted. You will be given a mild anesthetic, so the procedure should not be painful at all. After the procedure, you will need to take care of the transplanted area to ensure proper healing. This includes avoiding strenuous activity, avoiding sun exposure and keeping the scalp clean. After the procedure, you will likely experience some swelling and redness around the transplanted area. You should also expect some scabbing and possibly some itching. These are normal post-operative symptoms and should resolve within a few days. You will need to wait several months for the transplanted hair to grow. The hair will grow at a rate of about 1/4 inch per month, so it may take several months before you see significant growth. However, this hair growth is permanent. After the procedure, it’s also important to maintain a healthy scalp with a proper hair care routine, including other modalities to maintain non-transplanted hair. Overall, a hair transplant can be a great solution for those who want to restore hair growth in areas that have thinned or become bald. With proper care, you can achieve a natural-looking head of hair. A hair transplant is a safe and effective way to restore hair growth in areas that have thinned or become bald. However, it is important to have realistic expectations and to choose a qualified and experienced surgeon.

The Risks of Getting a Hair Transplant Overseas: Proceed with Caution

Back to all articles The Risks of Getting a Hair Transplant Overseas: Proceed with Caution Pictured above: Not a We Grow Hair Indy client In recent years, medical tourism has gained popularity, with individuals seeking various procedures, including hair transplants, in foreign countries. The allure of “lower costs” and promises of “high-quality results” may be tempting, but it’s essential to carefully consider the potential risks involved. Our team has seen many clients in our clinic who have come to us seeking repairs or more density as a result of traveling overseas for a hair transplant. We will explore a few reasons why getting a hair transplant overseas can be a risky decision and why you should proceed with caution. Quality and Safety Concerns: While some countries may offer advanced medical facilities, others may have lax regulations and less stringent safety standards. Choosing an accredited and reputable clinic is crucial for ensuring a safe procedure. Overseas clinics may not adhere to the same standards as those in your home country, making it challenging to assess their competence and reliability. Our team prioritizes the highest standards of quality and safety, with a strong track record of successful procedures and satisfied clients. Pictured: We Grow Hair Indy’s state-of-the-art ARTAS Robotic FUE procedure room Communication Barriers: Effective communication between the patient and the medical team is vital in any medical procedure. When receiving a hair transplant overseas, language barriers can create significant obstacles. Misunderstandings can occur during consultations, pre-operative discussions, or even the post-operative care process. Such miscommunications may lead to unsatisfactory results or potential complications. Our team, consisting of experienced professionals, ensures clear and effective communication throughout the entire process, understanding your goals and expectations. Follow-up and Aftercare Challenges: A hair transplant procedure doesn’t end with the surgery itself. Adequate post-operative care and follow-up appointments are crucial for a successful outcome. Opting for a hair transplant overseas might make it difficult to receive proper follow-up care, especially if you live far away from the clinic. This lack of accessible aftercare can hinder your recovery process and may lead to unsatisfactory results or potential complications. Our team follows our clients throughout the entire process, checking in with multiple in-person follow-ups throughout the 12-month growth period after the procedure, and even longer just to check on your progress. Pictured: We Grow Hair Indy’s client and local Sports Personality Dave Furst Cultural Differences and Personalized Approach: Hair transplantation is a highly personalized procedure that requires a comprehensive understanding of the patient’s aesthetic goals and expectations. Cultural differences may influence the perception of beauty and the understanding of individual preferences. Overseas clinics may not fully grasp your desired outcome or possess the same level of expertise in catering to your unique needs, potentially resulting in dissatisfactory results. Our team recognizes and respects individual preferences, providing a personalized approach and variety of hair transplant methods to ensure the best possible outcome. Travel-related Considerations: While getting a hair transplant overseas may seem like a cost-effective option, it’s important to consider the additional expenses involved. Travel costs, accommodation, and potential time off work for an extended period can significantly add to the overall cost. Additionally, the stress of traveling and adapting to a new environment can impact your recovery process negatively. Choosing a local clinic allows for convenience, reduced travel expenses, and a smoother recovery process. Watch this video to learn more about how Laser Hair Therapy can benefit you in the long-term after your hair transplant: https://youtu.be/jTv41IdB1us Seeking further treatment: Our clinic is committed to providing comprehensive solutions for hair restoration. We understand that a hair transplant is just one aspect of the journey towards achieving your desired results. That’s why our team offers a range of proven solutions for hair restoration, including non-surgical options such as FDA-approved Laser Hair Therapy, Enhanced Plasma Therapy, and Biological Growth Factor treatments. By choosing our clinic, you can have peace of mind knowing that even after your hair transplant procedure, we will continue to support you with any necessary further treatments or maintenance. Our goal is to ensure long-term success and satisfaction for our clients, offering a seamless and continuous approach to hair restoration under one trusted roof. Pictured: Pictured: We Grow Hair Indy’s FDA-Approved Low-Level Laser Hair Therapy If you are still considering a hair transplant overseas, well-known hair restoration advocate Spencer Stevenson wrote an article regarding what you should know before getting a hair transplant overseas, read it here. When considering a hair transplant, it’s crucial to prioritize safety, quality, communication, and aftercare. While the allure of getting a hair transplant overseas may seem enticing, the potential risks and challenges involved should not be overlooked. Our team has witnessed numerous cases where clients have sought repairs or additional density after receiving hair transplants abroad. By choosing a reputable and established clinic like We Grow Hair Indy, you can benefit from the highest standards of care, personalized treatment, accessible follow-up care, and a comprehensive range of proven solutions for hair restoration.

What to Expect When Getting a Hair Transplant

Back to all articles What to Expect When Getting a Hair Transplant A hair transplant (also known as hair transplantation) is a procedure that involves moving donor hair follicles from one part of the scalp to another, usually to restore hair growth in areas that are thinning or balding. Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT) and Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) are two of the most common hair transplant techniques. The use of either one of these techniques is dependent on the level of hair loss, hair type, hair texture, and the hair restoration expectations of the client. The term “donor hair” is the hair used in a hair transplant procedure. It is taken from the back or sides of the scalp, where hair is typically more resistant to balding. Hair on the back of the head is more resistant to balding due to its resistance to the hormone DHT, which is the main root cause of genetic hair loss. The hair is then carefully transplanted to the balding or thinning areas of the scalp, creating a fuller, more natural-looking head of hair. If you’re considering a hair transplant, here is a glimpse into the process: 1. Consultation with a Hair Loss Specialist: Your first step is to schedule a consultation with a hair loss specialist. They will examine your scalp and hair, discuss your goals and concerns, and evaluate whether you’re a good candidate for a transplant. Knowing that the first step to getting your hair back is to schedule a consultation with a hair loss specialist, the next important step is to go to a place that offers more than one hair transplant option. Meeting with a clinic that offers both FUT and FUE procedure options means that you will get the best, unbiased opinion as to which option best suits your specific needs. That is why We Grow Hair Indy proudly offers the latest technology in hair restoration, Multi-Unit Hair Grafting™ and ARTAS Robotic FUE hair transplants. At We Grow Hair Indy, your first consultation with a hair loss specialist to examine what hair loss solution is best for your needs is also completely free, click here to get more information on scheduling. 2. Procedure with an experienced Hair Transplant Surgeon: Hair transplants typically take several hours to complete, depending on the size of the area being treated. The procedure is performed under local anesthesia and involves removing hair follicles from the donor site, typically the back of the head, and transplanting them to the recipient site. The length of the procedure is dependent on the amount of hair harvested and the method of the hair transplant. Multi-Unit Hair Grafting™ procedures typically take around 5-6 hours whilst ARTAS Robotic FUE can take 7-8 hours. At We Grow Hair Indy, our technicians have an average of 18 years of experience strictly performing hair transplants. Our Physicians have over 19 years of experience strictly performing hair transplants. When considering a hair transplant, it is important to choose a clinic with an experienced team, because as much as a hair transplant is a medical procedure, it is also an art. The artistry behind a hair transplant comes from the angles of the sites being made and the mapping of the individual’s natural hair angles, this is truly what determines natural-looking results. 3. Recovery and Aftercare: After the procedure, you may experience some swelling, redness, and itching at the transplant site. Unlike most hair transplant clinics, We Grow Hair Indy understands the importance of great follow-up care, and includes a post-procedure hair wash the day after your hair transplant to check on the hair grafts and ensure the area is properly cleansed. After your initial hair wash, you will be given instructions for how to care for the area, which typically involves sleeping with your head elevated, proper cleansing, and avoiding any activities that may cause trauma to the transplanted hair (limiting exercise and intense physical movement). Following aftercare instructions is essential to a healthy and fast recovery. The medical team at We Grow Hair Indy will reach out during important milestones throughout your recovery and is always available to discuss any concerns or questions you may have. Patient care is our number one priority, and we will be checking in with you on a consistent basis to make sure that you are recovering properly. The medical team is your best resource for any questions or concerns that arise during the entirety of your hair restoration journey. 4. Results: It typically takes several months for the transplanted hair to grow, and the full results of the procedure may not be visible for several months to a year. The transplanted hair will continue to grow as it did before and should look and feel natural. Results will vary from person to person, it is dependent on the type of hair transplant they received, the amount of hair transplanted, hair type and texture, adherence to aftercare instructions, the use of other modalities, and the level of loss that they were experiencing prior to the procedure. 5. Maintenance after the Hair Transplant: Many people ask if there is anything that they need to do after having a hair transplant. Although the transplanted hair is permanent, it is important to take a global approach. What this means is that you want to replace what you have lost and keep the existing non-transplanted hair that you have. This helps to minimize the potential for 2nd procedures as well. Ultimately, there is a percentage of those that need an additional procedure. You’ll need to follow a good hair care routine, including regular shampooing and conditioning, and avoid anything that may cause damage to your hair. We Grow Hair Indy’s physicians encourage the use of other medical therapies like finasteride and/or minoxidil to keep the non-transplanted hair long-term as well. Overall, hair transplants are a safe and effective way to restore hair growth in areas that are thinning or balding. By understanding what to expect before, during, and after the

Manual FUE vs ARTAS Robotic FUE Hair Transplant

Back to all articles Manual FUE vs ARTAS Robotic FUE Hair Transplant Deciding to have a hair transplant is a big life choice and understanding what the differences are between the procedure types is paramount. One of the popular “buzz words” in hair restoration today is “FUE hair transplant”. What is an FUE hair transplant exactly? What are the different kinds of FUE procedures, and how are they different? Here we will be discussing different types of FUE hair transplant procedures, including the ARTAS Robotic FUE hair transplant procedure. ARTAS Robotic FUE vs. Manual FUE At PAI Medical Group of Indiana (WeGrowHairIndy), we believe in staying up-to-date on the most advanced technology in hair restoration and offering the best hair transplant techniques available anywhere in the world. For these reasons, we invested in the most technologically advanced hair transplant procedure, the ARTAS Robotic FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction). FUE procedures are not something new to the market, but a majority of the procedures done throughout the world are manual handheld FUE procedures, like a NeoGraft device. A manual handheld FUE hair transplant is a procedure that is done by a physician using a handheld device to extract the individual hair follicles. Much of the success of this form of procedure is entirely as a result of the efficiency and experience of the Physician, to ensure that harvesting happens at a natural distance apart and that the hair follicle does not get transected during harvesting. Perfectly extracting 500 – 3,000 follicles by hand takes a steady hand and a tremendous amount of time. In comparison, the ARTAS FUE hair transplant procedure is a physician guided robotic FUE hair transplant device. This simply states that the physician will be in control of the robot during the procedure by selecting the density amount desired for harvesting as well as mapping out the desired donor area. The physician does not actually harvest the donor grafts. The harvesting step is all completed by the ARTAS robot with unparalleled precision and accuracy. ARTAS does 3-D mapping of the patient’s scalp and hair follicles. This determines the follicle angle under the scalp and is able to do this by updating its positions during extraction 50 times per second, as well as calculating and mapping the distance between each follicle that has been harvested to ensure that the harvested area is not “over harvested”. This ensures the best possible result for the hair transplant recipient. See image below for ARTAS detailed mapping example: The largest advantage for ARTAS is having this state of the art technology, which is something that is unachievable with any type of manual handheld FUE hair transplant procedure including NeoGraft. ARTAS eliminates the factor of human error, such as fatigue with follicle harvesting. As you can imagine, 3-6 hours of harvesting individual follicles can be very taxing for any one person and, as that time progresses, the quality of the thousandths follicle cannot be guaranteed to be the same quality as the first. In addition, it is virtually impossible for the human eye to predict hair angles under the scalp or have exact measured spacing between each extraction to ensure the natural look post procedure. Watch the video below to see ARTAS Robotic FUE in action.

Make Every Day A Good Hair Day – Absolute Living Feature

Back to all articles Make Every Day A Good Hair Day – Absolute Living Feature Alex Fortey has over 25 million views of the simple golf lessons he gives on his YouTube channel, The Art of Simple Golf. “I used to have to wear a lot of hats on the golf course,” he admits, but last year, he made the drive up to Indianapolis from Louisville, Kentucky, for the trademarked procedure at We Grow Hair Indy, a Multi-Unit Hair Grafting™ hair transplant. “The hairline is natural, it looks good,” he says of his current full head of hair. “I love it. I wish I had done it sooner. It’s so much easier than you think.” Hair loss can affect both men and women at any stage of life, and it can have detrimental effects on self-esteem. At We Grow Hair Indy, the mission is to enrich the lives of their clients with the most innovative and proven hair restoration solutions, hoping they leave with more confidence, pride, and a more vibrant life than when they first walked through the doors on consultation day. Almost 20 years ago, Darren Andrews, a New Zealand native began losing his hair, which had a dramatic impact on his life. “My hair loss bothered and affected me more than I was willing to admit,” he reveals. In 2005, he underwent a hair transplant procedure to restore his hair, that in turn restored his self-confidence. Andrews, who is now the Clinic Director at We Grow Hair Indy, says, “Having the opportunity to help other people experience the same results has been very rewarding to me.” We Grow Hair Indy is the largest hair restoration clinic in the Midwest. Hair restoration is their passion, and they have offered the gold standard in permanent and natural hair restoration for both men and women for more than 30 years. Individual plans are customized for each client based on age, health, hair type, degree of loss, and expectations, and utilize two of the most effective hair restoration options on the market—the ARTAS Robotic FUE (follicular unit extraction) and their trademarked Multi-Unit Hair Grafting™ procedure. “Traditional FUT procedures can’t compare to We Grow Hair Indy’s trademarked Multi-Unit Hair Grafting™ procedure,” says Andrews. “It’s the best choice for clients who need the most hair possible, typically delivering up to double the hair density compared to other commonly done procedures.” Through an exclusive partnership with Transitions Indy, non-invasive and non-surgical hair restoration is also possible with laser hair therapy, Enhanced Plasma Therapy, and other hair growth treatments. These treatments are ideal for treating hair loss caused by hormonal changes or stress, and can provide clients of any age with thicker, fuller and healthier hair. “If hair loss bothers you now, it will bother you even more in the future as it progresses,” says Will Saddler, the Clinic Director at Transitions Indy who had his hair transplant in 2015. His advice is to research all the available options as soon as you start to notice hair loss, when it’s easier to get under control. “The first step is to stop hair loss in its tracks, and then we have a variety of options to restore the hair you’ve lost. Don’t wait until it’s too late!” *Article originally appeared on Absolute Living* Give your hair, and your confidence, a boost with a consultation with one of the restoration specialists at We Grow Hair Indy by calling (317) 522-2995.

Survey finds majority of people cannot detect a hair transplant

Back to all articles Survey finds majority of people cannot detect a hair transplant The following article contains excerpts from an ISHRS Press Release: LEADING HAIR AUTHORITY CALLS THE PUBLIC’S BLUFF: NSURVEY FINDS MAJORITY OF PEOPLE CANNOT DETECT A HAIR TRANSPLANT GENEVA, IL, USA. – September 28, 2010. For those who think they could identify a person who has had a hair transplant, the International Society for Hair Restoration Surgeons (ISHRS) has news for you. According to an online survey conducted by the ISHRS, the majority of people could not identify a hair transplant in a series of photos between real patients and men and women who have not had hair restoration surgery. “Our survey clearly shows that it is nearly impossible to detect a modern-day hair transplant, as the results we can achieve today with the latest surgical techniques consistently produce natural-looking, permanent results,” said Edwin S. Epstein, MD, ISHRS president. “That’s why more and more men, and women, of all ages are turning to hair restoration surgery to combat hair loss.” Other key findings of the survey include the following: Nearly all respondents (91 percent) felt that hair restoration was more accepted now than it was 10 years ago. When asked to view photos of four popular male celebrities and select which one had the best hair, more than half of respondents (54.1 percent) thought Patrick Dempsey had the best hair, followed by Hugh Jackman (24.1 percent), Tom Cruise (11.5 percent), and Johnny Depp (10.3 percent). When asked to view photos of four popular female celebrities and select which one had the best hair, Penelope Cruz edged out Jennifer Aniston (39.6 percent vs. 33.6 percent, respectively) as the female celebrity with the most coveted hair, followed by Kim Kardashian (17.5 percent) and Beyonce Knowles (9.3 percent). More than three in five respondents (61.9 percent) felt having more hair would help them be more successful in getting a job or advancing in their career. As many as seven in 10 respondents (73.1 percent) would trade a “treasured personal possession” for more hair. Hair loss affects 50 percent of all men and more than 25 percent of women worldwide and has been shown to have a significant impact on a person’s self-esteem and overall quality of life. Fortunately, recent scientific breakthroughs have made hair restoration an option for almost everyone. Hair restoration surgery and proven medical treatments are an effective combination in treating people with thinning hair and limiting future hair loss. About the ISHRS Founded in 1993, the ISHRS is a nonprofit medical association dedicated to the advancement of the art and science of hair restoration. With a membership of more than 800 physicians worldwide, the ISHRS provides continuing medical education to physicians specializing in hair loss and restoration surgery.
