Benefits of hair transplant
Permanent hair: hair transplant gives permanent hair. As you can see hairpieces and medicines do not give permanent hairs. Any subsequent hair fall is usually from the untreated scalp area. Some people go for another transplant to stop this hair loss as well.
One time investment: as hair transplant gives permanent hair, so you do not need to spend your money every now and then that you are forced to do in case of wigs and medicines.
Enhanced appearance: hair transplant makes you look youthful and complete. You develop new hairline and a thick crown and it brings back your looks once you had in your teens and tweens.
Increased self-confidence and increased self-esteem: when you know that you are not looking odd due to your bald scalp or an abnormally high forehead, your self-confidence boosts. You do not feel reluctant to face people and go to public places without hesitation. Transplanted hairs remove a sense of self-awareness and you develop a better image of self.
