Psychology of Hair Loss
Permalink Closed

Losing hair effects all demographic groups, it is a leveller of wealth, class and social standing. There is no reason why a few filaments of minerals should cause so much anxiety, but it does. Concern for hair is be documented far back as to the days of Samson and Delilah and his loss of strength, up to today with the media coverage of David Beckhamís locks.

A thick head of hair signifies youth, strength, and success. Almost every man loses hair and recognises it as a sign of aging, therefore a progressive loss of virility. Young men do not want to thin because they feel it is before their time and middle age men want to stay youthful looking.

Concern about losing hair or looking to replace hair is perceived as a weakness and very few people will discuss their feelings even their closest friends or family. As we grow older we look at our male family members with horror if they have thinned, as we look on with impending dread.

Confronting this demon can be harder than accepting it. The basic truth is you do not want to see yourself bald, when we close our eyes and imagine how you look it is certainly not without hair. The Clinic has an important role to not only determine and educate the client to the best procedure for them; but also to establish the personís objectives and goals in undergoing a hair transplant.

Although technically / medically there have been major advances in treatments and almost all people can have a Hair Transplant this does not mean the procedure or treatment is suitable for all; factors such as age, hair loss stage, potential for future loss, donor management and patient desires are evaluated. With this in mind the process of decision is always finalised with a detailed in person consultation with the doctor prior to the procedure.
