Need More Hair Upstairs?

Sep 9, 2008
Loss of hair really is foul play by God. He gives us all this hair to get acquainted with, and then suddenly chooses to slowly remove it. Not fair! Something ought to be done, and most men act in some way. Not always in most fashionable way though. Let's talk about it.

Even though we have changed decennium you may still see quite a few solving this problem in really embarrassing ways. We have all seen them and wondered. For example the ones growing long strands of hair on their temples and combing over their blank scalp. It doesn't look good to start with, but that is still nothing compared to what happens when the wind blows just a tiny little bit.

For the last decade or so many men have solved this problem in a very straight forward manner. They simply cut it all off. The result is of course also cheap and easy to take care of, but the number of ways you can change your new hair style is somewhat limited. Of course you might choose between different polishing foams, and the really hardy can share supplements with his car.

But aren't there other options? Can't your male friend just get to keep his hair upstairs? Grow hair, swap hairs, move them, clone them or breed 'em? Well as with other fields within male cosmetic surgery there are nowadays quite nice options.

As a first brilliant idea although not that simple, hair transplant operations are carried through to replace hair. Most of the times for male patients, but some women are also treated. Your natural hair pattern can be recreated, even though it will not look exactly the same. Let me talk you through the basics.

Hair transplant surgery can be carried through by different methods. There is one called grafting, where groups of hair are replaced. The male cosmetic surgeon makes use of small plugs of hair called grafts. Most times a couple of hundred miniature plugs are inserted. Another method is that of replacement of the bald area with flaps of skin where hair is still present. This means moving skin with normal hair growth to another area.

Both operation methods mentioned can be done with help of general or local anesthesia. The first option means being completely asleep, while in the latter your scalp sensitivity is blocked. It is important to discuss the differences with a professional to be able to choose the method most suitable to you. The operation by itself is most times carried through on an outpatient basis, and you may return home a couple of hours after your cosmetic surgery is complete.

There are even more options. Another method in use is the one called scalp expansion, where a balloon is carefully inserted under the scalp. Slowly over weeks the balloon is then filled with saline to expand the area of hair bearing skin. When large enough the new skin area is then moved to the bald parts.

These are different alternatives to shaving your head or growing silly super strands. If you are interested in more information regarding the exact techniques involved, read more online or talk to your male cosmetic surgeon.
