Hair Restoration Surgery, this volume brought him to educate us about hair loss and hair transplantation.

How does hair transplantation become his interest?

Hair transplantation is interested me as we have less people in Thailand and all over the world either put their interest in this area. By the way, Thailand's is the only one center besides the US that certified by ISHRS.

About hair transplantation?

Hair transplantation has been successfully performed for over 40 years and are the only method for hair restoration completely give a natural results that will last a life time. It is a surgical technique that involves moving permanent skin containing hair follicles from back and/or sides of scalp (the donor site) to bald or thinning area of the scalp (the recipient site).

The procedure does not have any long term or side effects. The medication may provide after the procedure to help slow down or prevent patients' hair loss problem might occur in the future. After surgery, there is no additional care needed on the transplanted hair; you are able to treat it like your ordinary hair, shape it, cut it, dye it or do whatever you want because it is your own hair.

Unlike those treatments provide in aesthetic clinics, hair transplantation is considered as part of medical treatment.

About hair replacement?

There are 2 kinds of hair replacements, those are hair piece and hair system. Hair piece (known as wig) tends to cover all of the head, whereas a hair system is designed to cover the balding area only. Unlike the hair piece, if you choose hair system which involves sewing a wig into existing hair, you have to see the technician every month to help you take care of your replaced hair since you cannot do it for yourself. The maintenance cost for hair replacement is high in long term, therefore a surgery is considered to be a smarter way by the reason that it's one time investment that can last for a life time.

Hair loss problem?

Hair loss problem is often seen in male more than female due to many reasons, including and hereditary and hormonal factor. In Thailand, statistics said 30-40% of Thai male facing hair loss when they are stepping to the age of 40-50. Less seen in female and in different pattern.

Self observation and evaluation

Falling of 50-100 strands of hair each day is considered to be normal as these are replaced with new hair growing. It's important to observe your everyday's fallen hair, easy to collect them in an envelop for a week and average it per day. If you find it's unusual, then it's time to go and see the doctor. Remember, hair loss sometimes effected by medication, hyperthyroidism, Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE) etc. unless it gradually happens and become in pattern like a common baldness.

Children with Hair Restoration Surgery

In case, they are very young, says he/she is only 18-19, that means we have to go through a thorough evaluation. In many country people under the age of 25 cannot have a surgery. However. In Thailand, we don't have any rule about minimum requirement, it all depends on the doctor consideration.

The doctor remind and recommend,

It's important to have a heath check-up annually; sooner we know what's wrong with us , the the better and easier to recovery. Further, for those who love to dye, to curl, to straighten your hair regularly. You may not see its effect to your hair root now but who knows the future so it would be better to keep your hair away from heat and chemical unless it's necessary.
