It seems that even in a down economic period, more people would rather invest in their locks
than their stocks. An online survey conducted in 2009 by the International Society of Hair
Restoration Surgery found that 59.8 percent of people who were asked whether they would
rather have more hair, more money or more friends chose more hair. Yet an estimated 80 million
American men and women suffer from male or female pattern hair loss.
Dr. Drake Vincent of Vincent Surgical Arts in Cottonwood Heights, Utah wants to inform the
public about hair restoration surgery that can be a permanent solution for the right candidate.
Hair restoration surgery candidates are individuals with hair loss that have sufficient donor hair
from the fringe of the scalp to transplant to the balding area. The most common form of medical
restoration is hair transplant surgery.
“When done right, a hair transplant surgery can produce life-long results that are so natural that
even hair stylists cannot detect them, but choosing the right hair restoration procedure and
physician is vital as your results will last a life time,” says Vincent. “The first consultation with
your hair restoration surgeon is critical to success, and a frank discussion of goals and treatment
plans goes a long way to achieving satisfying results.”
Nearly 75 percent of all hair transplant patients are men. Male hormones cause most men to
develop male pattern baldness until approximately 40 to 45 years of age. After that, the aging
process thins the entire head of hair. Hair restoration surgery is the only permanent solution
available for men suffering from hair loss. The procedure actually restores hair that will grow
naturally and require styling and haircuts.
Hair transplantation is an operation which takes hair from the back of the head and moves it to
the area of hair loss. The fringe (back and sides) of hair on a balding scalp is known as donor
dominant hair which is the hair that will continue to grow throughout the life of most men. The
transplantation of this hair to a bald area does not change its ability to grow. Donor dominance is
the scientific basis for the success of hair transplantation.
