Why a Hair Transplant is Better Than A Hairpiece

So you are losing your hair and are looking for a way to get your hair back. After watching countless infomercials on late night television you think a non-surgical hair system might be the answer for your hair loss. However one thing to keep in mind is a hairpiece is a hairpiece is a hairpiece! It doesn’t matter what you call it! You can refer to it as strand by strand? Do you prefer non-surgical replacement? How about laser hair replacement? Or, what about a bio-matrix? That sounds interesting. Do you like poly fuse? I think you get the idea. Then there are the less tactful ways of referring to a non-surgical hair system such as a wig, a hairpiece or a toupee (ouch)! How do you feel if someone calls it a rug? That's not good! The point I am trying to make is whatever you call the hair attachment, it's all the same thing. A non-surgical hair replacement solution is just that! It is not growing out of your head. It needs to be maintained and replaced often or it will look extremely fake!

The worst part of this story is that about 90% of all male wearers of these non-surgical systems are fantastic candidates for a permanent surgical hair implant procedure. Once completed, a hair implant requires no maintenance. If done properly by a hair loss specialist, the hair will never fall out! It will continue to grow forever. Also, if you choose the right hair specialist the first time around then your hair implant will be virtually undetectable. The only maintenance required is shampooing, conditioning and a hair cut! In addition, the cost of a hair surgery is extremely less than if you continue to wear the fake hair for only a few years.

A quick cost comparison will show you the money you could save simply be using your having your own natural hair. The cost of your hair system will most likely be around $1,200 to $1,500 to get started. That will include the initial "installation.” At that initial installation you will be offered a series of options for maintenance. Here is where things get a little tricky. These options will range from a few hundred dollars a month to as much as $1,200 a month. The cold hard truth is you will need to replace these things every few months and have them properly serviced. This will run you $500 a month, minimum. That comes out to $6,000 a year, not even including the first $1,500 or so to get started. At $6,000 a year, the math is easy. After just four years of wearing a hair system the price tag is a whopping $25,000. Using that $25,000 as a benchmark, I can assure you beyond a shadow of a doubt, you could fund several MaxHarvest surgical hair restoration procedures although you probably won't need that many.

Some people are so tied to the appearance of having hair from use of a hair system that there is a transition period between having a full head of fake hair to having a full head of real hair. First, you must know your personal expectations. If you are emotionally attached to the hair system and the appearance it gives you, you may have to make this a two-step process. The first step will be to have a MaxHarvest surgical hair loss procedure. The second step would be a follow-up procedure one-year post-op. Allow the first surgery to completely heal for 10 days, and continue to wear your hair system with a semi permanent attachment. This way you will be able to wear your hair system during the day and remove it at night. You will want to take it off at night for the new hair to grow in properly. You may also consider wearing a hat on weekends. While you wait for your real hair to grow in, you will be able to have the best of both worlds.

Hair wearers are told repeatedly that a hair surgery will never give them the thick youthful look that is accomplished easily with a non-surgical option. However, a hair wearer can avoid this issue if he seeks out a hair restoration practice that performs the MaxHarvest procedure. The MaxHarvest procedure will move the maximum hair possible in one procedure. Dr. Brett Bolton has had tremendous success with helping hair wearers remove their hairpieces. Dr. Bolton believes the MaxHarvest technique is a major reason why this works. This will enable the hair wearer to get much more coverage and density. Other conventional hair clinics move a limited amount of hair grafts based on a cost per graft. For maximum density and a true final result, the hair wearer should consider a second MaxHarvest procedure. However, this will be totally optional and in many cases not needed. It will all depend on personal expectations. Meanwhile, at anytime during the entire growth stage of the surgery, the hair wearer may remove the hair system when he feels comfortable with his result.
While it usually takes a year for your hair to come around to its full potential, some people will start to see results in as little as 3 months. This is not the norm, but it does happen. In the end natural is better. Your hair is better than any non-surgical system, because after all, no matter what you called it, a hairpiece is still a hairpiece.

I have a previous surgery before at a location in Texas, which did not give me good results, I end up with a bad scar and very few good grafts. When I consult Dr. Bolton I knew my case was gonna be difficult and I did no have any big expectations as far of...

    I went to Dr Bolton for a great hair transplant! I wanted to get the most hair I could in one procedure. I had a procedure years ago and now at Bosley they could not do as much coverage I needed. It would cost a lot more for multiple procedures which is hard on your hair and your life. I wanted to do just one!. Josh the hair specialist gave me...

    I was apprehensive going into this but I’m glad I did it! I live in CT near New York City and there are a few places in NYC with good reputations that I had looked into for hair restoration but in the end it was Dr. Bolton that I chose. I had to travel to get the procedure done but I’m completely thrilled with results. Dr. Bolton is great! He...

    My experience with Dr. Bolton and his staff was excellent. I initially had contact with Mike Anticoli who answered many questions I had about my condition and the possible treatment options. Mike was great from start to even today, months after treatment. They both did follow up calls to me after the procedure. Mike was in contact with me daily for...

    So far, so good! Had my hair transplant last October. Been in contact with Josh, Dr. Bolton’s correspondent, since day 1. Can’t recommend either of them highly enough. I’m currently only at 5 months but my hairline has already dramatically improved and I’m seeing lots of new hairs popping up. I’ll keep everyone updated as the months progress. I’...

    I had a Max harvest plus procedure with Dr Bolton in October 2020. I had anxiety about the strip being taken out before the procedure, but I can confirm that it does not hurt whatsoever. Dr. B is highly skilled with the scalpel and uses a perfect amount of local anesthetic so there is no discomfort at all when the strip is being taken out. Dr B...

    First let me start off by saying getting a hair transplant is not something anyone should be ashamed of male or female. This like any cosmetic surgery is to help with your self esteem and at the end of the day that's all that matters not someone else's opinion. When you do decide to go on that adventure, please do your research and consider Dr....
