Hair Transplant

After years of hiding under a hat, creative haircuts, and even trying the bald Hair Transplantlook, you’ve finally decided to take the plunge and have hair transplant surgery. You’ve researched all the options, procedures, recovery time, and expense and now it’s time to schedule a consultation with a hair transplant doctor. Yet selecting one has you feeling a bit overwhelmed. They all promise extraordinary results and claim to be the best and most qualified. So, how do you cut through the clutter and feel confident in your choice? Here are 5 important things to consider.

Can the doctor show you several before and after photos? Ask to see examples of the various hair restoration services the practice performs and make sure the photos are from actual patients and not pulled off the web. Also, ask how long ago the procedures were performed.

Can the practice provide you with patient references? A surgeon should be able to share with you the contact information for several past or existing patients that have undergone hair transplant surgery and are willing to share their experiences with you. Ask for those who have had transplants like the kind you have in mind to get a better idea of what to expect before, during, and after the surgery.

Is hair restoration the surgeon’s primary specialty? Take caution when considering practices that provide a variety of services, unless they have doctors who specialize in each service offered.

What are the surgeon’s credentials? Is he or she board certified? How long have they been practicing, and how many surgeries have they performed throughout their career? You want a surgeon who not only has the education and training, but extensive experience in various hair restoration procedures.

Ask about the support staff. A doctor needs a qualified and caring support staff to provide you with the best possible service. Is there someone on hand to answer your questions before and after the procedure? Who do you contact should you have post-surgical complications? Who will be seeing you for your follow-up appointments? These are all factors that can deliver a better hair restoration experience.

fast food and hair loss

How Fast Food Affects Hair Loss

Drive long enough and you’re bound to see a fast food joint – or five – in your fast food and hair losstravels. And sure, fast food restaurants are great for a quick bite when you’re on the go, or a celebratory burger and shake because your preschooler game home with a gold sticker on his spelling test. But too much fast food, as we know, can have a detrimental impact on your health, including the health of our hair.

Most fast food lacks the important nutrients that our bodies need to be at their best. When consumed frequently or in large amounts, a fast food diet can lead to nutrient deficiencies that, in turn, can lead to hair loss.

Change Your Diet, Keep Your Hair

Eating a variety of well-balanced, nutritious food can improve the look and feel of your hair and reduce hair loss. Here are five key nutrients to include in your diet for a healthier scalp and hair. Of course, we encourage you to consult your trusted healthcare professional before embarking on any dietary changes.

  • Iron – Without an adequate supply of iron, your hair can become dry, brittle, and begin to fall out. Leafy greens, nuts, and all-natural red meats are all great ways to add more iron to your diet.
  • Biotin – Biotin can be found in sweet potatoes, almonds, avocado, bananas, and peanut butter. It’s known to slow down the balding process and reduce hair loss.
  • Vitamin E – Incorporating a healthy dose of vitamin E into your diet can help maintain healthy hair while fostering new hair growth. Vitamin E can be found in olive oil, almonds, avocados, and other foods with a substantial amount of plant fat.
  • Vitamin C – In addition to citrus, you can get vitamin C from dark, leafy vegetables, cantaloupe, tomatoes, and more.
  • Omega-3 Fatty Acids – Found in fresh fish like salmon, tuna and salmon, omega-3 fatty acids help keep hair looking shiny and full.
