Hair loss is not a fun experience, watching your crown of glory disappear more and more each time you look in the mirror is daunting. Even though hair loss is common among many people but it surely makes your self-esteem take a nose dive. Not to lose hope though as technology is evolving and you can actually get your hair back or almost get it back. Either way you will have hair on your head again.

You can opt for either a surgical hair transplant treatment for men or a hair replacement system. Although, these two options cater for the same need but they are very different.

Lets take a look at them individually.

Hair Transplant

This involves taking hair from one part of the scalp and putting it on the bald part. It is done surgically and to do this you must have enough donor hair but in some cases the hair can be harvested from the arms or chest as well.

Some factors are usually considered first before starting the procedure such as; whether you have enough donor hair or not and how much hair you might lose as you age. The procedure takes several hours and local anesthetic is involved to numb the scalp. Two to three sessions are required for optimal results. The implanted hair usually fall off after a month then the new hair will start to grow after several weeks.

Advantages of Hair Transplant

  • After the hair transplant your hair will continue to grow normally
  • You will have a positive aesthetic change
  • Your self-esteem will improve
  • You will have your natural hair back

Hair Replacement System

If you do not want to opt for the surgical way of hair transplant, you can choose the hair replacement system. Some people call them wigs, toupees or simply hairpieces. This is an instant solution to hair loss. Hair systems are made of the highest quality synthetic or human hair. They can be attached to existing hair, the bald part or to both. They come in different colors, styles, length, density and texture. The hair replacement system is very popular due to its affordability and versatility.

Advantages of Hair Replacement System

  • It is affordable
  • It provides instant results
  • No surgery needed

Disadvantages of Hair Replacement System

  • It requires regular maintenance
  • Frequent cleaning is needed
  • It may feel like a wig

Hair Transplant vs Hair Replacement System

  • One is surgical and another is non-surgical
  • The quality of donor hair determines the success of the hair transplant.
  • You just need to attach the new hairpiece to your head in hair replacement but this is not the case in hair transplant.
  • You cannot change the results of hair transplant but you can choose what kind of hair replacement system you want. Hence no risk is involved.
  • Hair transplant produces natural and permanent results while hairpieces produce artificial results offering temporary solution.
  • You don’t need to maintain transplanted hair but hair replacement systems require regular cleaning.
