In a world where almost each and every person is concerned about their looks in one way or the other, it is difficult to keep up. Some people have body issues where they feel they are too fat, or some feel that they are too thin. While some feel they have a crooked nose, the others feel, they are going bald.
While there is a solution for all the above insecurities, all of them take time but are they permanent solutions? Let’s take balding for example.
Many people have what is commonly called a bald spot. At that spot, hair does not grow which might eventually lead to balding. So if someone is suffering from a balding condition, but cannot afford to lose their hair and want to get it back, what is the solution? A hair transplant. Now the procedure of hair transplant boasts of the growth of hair, but is it a permanent solution?
Is Hair transplant permanent?
The answer to this question is a yes and a no. Why is it a permanent solution, is because, when the procedure of hair transplant is done, it is done for a particular patch of the scalp where hair growth is extinct. So hair is taken from the other part of the head, most preferably, the back and then transplanted it into the bald patch. Now this transplanted hair is permanent.
However, what is not permanent is when there is an underlying condition which is causing your baldness. In the case of people suffering from Alopecia or Androgenic Alopecia which is male pattern baldness, the hair fall is continuous no matter how much you get a hair transplant done.
Any kind of baldness happens in patches. If you are suffering from various conditions which is resulting in your baldness, even if you get a hair transplant done to get back the hair in one bald spot, hair fall will still continue in the other parts of your head. This is where hair transplant procedure is not a permanent solution.
