Hair loss is a natural part of the aging process, but it’s a very depressing process especially if you have enjoyed a full head of hair for many years, or male pattern baldness has set in at at a  young age.  In the past, men would either resign themselves to being bald for life, or resort to the rather less dignified world of wigs and hats. However, as always, modern science has come up with a way to keep us looking young and vibrant, and that is with a hair transplant. By taking hair from other bits of your body, and seeding them into your scalp, you can once again boast a glossy head of your very own hair, and take years off the way you look.

Unfortunately, this procedure can be rather expensive as it is a time-consuming process. But if you travel to Thailand for your hair transplant, you can save money and still have cash in your pocket to enjoy a holiday. This is becoming a popular option, as there are several clinics in Thailand that offer hair transplants and the majority of surgeons are registered with the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgeons.

There are a range of options when it comes to hair transplant techniques.

  • Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) where a patient’s hair is transplanted in naturally occurring groups of 1 to 4 hairs, called follicular units.

  • Follicular Unit Extraction, where individual follicular units are extracted directly from the hair restoration patient’s donor area, one at a time.

  • Micro Transplants, in which a strip of skin is cut out from the donor area before being cut into smaller pieces, and then placed on the recipient area. This is the oldest method of hair transplant and cheaper than FUE and FUT, but less effective.

 

A surgeon may use a mixture of these techniques to get the best effect. Surgeons in Thailand will undertake other procedures that many surgeons  in the U.S won’t, such as  body hair construction and even beard transplants.

One of the best things about having your hair transplant in Thailand is that there is no long waiting list as there often is in other countries. Just fill in the paperwork and make an appointment.

Bear in mind, that very few insurance companies cover this type of procedure so you’ll have to pay costs yourself, which is another good reason for coming Thailand. In the US a hair transplant procedure costs up to $10,000. depending on how complex a procedure you’ll need. Even after taking into account your flights and hotels, you can still save money. So don’t forget to book a few days away to see some of Thailand before you head home, with your full head of hair.
