This might be hard to believe for some but there are nearly 60 million men and women walking around the world with bald spots! Since it is so common, is it not normal? Yes, as a matter of fact, it is very normal. Until it happens to you! I have personally met men who have explained the emotional feeling of going through life with a bald spot like walking around a mall with no pants on! They feel naked and ashamed. These men and women are constantly comparing themselves to those who have full heads of hair.
When hair loss does occur there is a strong possibility one's self esteem goes out the window. And there is even more bad news. Once the bald spot starts, odds are it will keep on going! The good news is there are options and you need to do your research.
The first thing you will need to do is see a hair specialist. This is a surgeon who only does hair implant surgery every day. Not a part time, but a full time hair doctor. This surgeon will make sure you have what is referred to as normal hair loss or standard alopecia. The doctor can recommend a few different medications, oral or topical, that can really help slow or stop the loss. You see it is extremely important that you take this step first. If not, you may be taking a giant step into hair transplantation yet continue to lose your original hair. This will not create the best result for your bald spot solution. As a matter of fact, it will cause you frustration down the road.
Once you have been properly diagnosed and a solution has been prescribed, it may be time to wait and see what happens, or time to move forward. If your expectations are reasonable and you will be happy simply not to lose any more hair, than I recommend the wait and see approach. If you cannot stand the bald spot and need it filled in, it is time for that hair loss specialist to surgically move hair follicles from the back of the head into the bald spot.
There is a technique known as the "Bolton Whorl" to create a thicker look in the area of hair loss. The transplanted follicles are angled in a spiraling direction that emulates the hair pattern you once had before you lost it. The technique combines placing as many hairs as possible with the angles and bam! After a few days of some small scabbing and a few months of waiting for the hair to start growing, the Bolton Whorl takes form and no more bald spot! Say good-bye bald spot, hello to a great hair day!
