Hair loss can have disastrous effects on a person’s appearance, self-confidence, and even their bank account.

This includes higher-than-average income and better promotion possibilities. Keep reading to find out what you need to know about hair transplants.
Hair loss can start in men as early as 15. Almost 20% of men in the world will experience some level of hair loss by the time they are 25 years old. By the age of 35, around 40% of the men in the world are going bald. By 50 years old, 60% of men are losing their hair.
Hair transplantation – either by FUE (follicular unit extraction) or FUT (follicular unit transplantation/strip method) – is the ONLY long-term hair loss solution to restore areas that are bald.
Clinically proven hair loss treatments such as Propecia and Rogaine can stop or slow down hair loss, but they do not grow back new hair in an area that is bald. However, it is important to have a plan that includes either finasteride, minoxidil, and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy so that you stop losing hair.
