The Canadian Institute of Hair and Scalp Specialists (www.CanadianHair.ca), a Toronto-based organization offering hair loss treatment for over 25 years, is weighing in on the increasing popularity and social acceptance of hair transplants.
“With more and more people taking pictures for social media, they want a full head of hair for profile images,” says Ken Robson, founder of the Canadian Institute of Hair and Scalp Specialists. “As a result, hair transplant procedures have been gaining in popularity in recent years, as many people want to have great-looking images for their Facebook and Twitter profile pictures.”
According to Robson, more and more men are entering the dating market after divorces and long-term relationships, or even waiting until they are in their 30s to start looking for marriage. However, many of them are starting to experience hair loss, and when they put themselves back out there, they want to have a full head of hair and the confidence it brings.
“Hair transplant surgery has come a long way in recent years and is now a safe and completely routine procedure,” he adds. “The technology for hair transplants has advanced in leaps and bounds over the past decade and now everything, from the procedure to the post-transplant recovery, is an outpatient procedure. Hair transplant procedures are quick and safe and patients can even choose how much hair they wish to have transferred.”
“Hair transplants have advanced to the point that they can now be performed using a local anesthetic, meaning patients can be on their way a few hours after the surgery,” Robson concludes. “And before leaving, patients are also being provided with post-hair transplant surgery tips to improve and maintain results, such as covering up if they’re going to be out in the sun and avoiding vigorous exercise for a few weeks following the procedure.”
The Canadian Institute of Hair and Scalp Specialists provides patients with hair transplant procedures and advice on the best options for their hair. For more information, visit the Canadian Institute of Hair and Scalp Specialists web site at www.CanadianHair.ca.
