Non-Surgical Treatments for Hair Loss

Cosmetic surgery of any kind can have its risks and even if you are willing to take the risk, you may not be a suitable candidate for hair transplantation. Hair transplantation surgery tends to be the most effective on men between Norwood 3-5.  If you are in the early stages of hair loss, under Norwood 3, then it is probably wise to try preventative medicinal treatments which can slow or stop your hair loss before attempting a surgery which is not particularly suited to your condition. Likewise, if you are over a Norwood 5, then you may not have enough donor hair left to transplant across your scalp. You should check with your doctor, but surgery may not be your best option. In this case, a hair system would probably be your best investment because medicinal techniques are more preventative then generative and are not always guaranteed to restore hair loss.

Even if you are a candidate for hair graft surgeries, it is wise to investigate non-surgical methods before you make the decision to have cosmetic surgery. Once you have eliminated all of your other options then, if you still feel that a hair transplant is right for you, you can pursue the surgical route to hair restoration.
