Overcoming depression due to hair loss with hair transplantation
FUE hair transplant is one of the best and leading technique to cure baldness.
You are young and experiencing hair loss – and if I were to ask you this question – how has hair loss impacted your life? – What would your response be? Will you be able to look at the problem in its entirety and objectively assess the situation? Will you be able to reflect on how hair loss has impacted your psychological make-up? How would you explain your mood swings? What is the reason that you swing like a pendulum from confidence to self-doubt? From an excessive jubilant mood to silence and lack of enthusiasm – are you able to understand your own behaviour at times? Why is it that you have started to question your own decisions? And what has pushed you into self-loathing and makes you see demons where none exist?
Over the years, researchers have established clear linkages between hair loss and psychological unrest – especially in young people. Although hair loss is not the only reason, yet for those who are extremely conscious of their looks – hair loss can trigger depressive instincts. And that can potentially derail your normal day to day as well as your professional career. It can result in a condition that does not allow you to appreciate the spring flowers, the humming of bees and the colours of life. And more importantly, it can result in social alienation – which is absolutely lethal for someone who thrives in a role that involves meeting and engaging with people in social settings. Therefore, researchers insist that hair loss should also be looked at as a psychological issue that can have long-term consequences – both personal and professional. And if that is the case, then where lies the solution? What should you do to overcome this problem? Lets find out.
Hair loss or pattern baldness is more often than not – a natural phenomenon. It is a natural process of aging. However, if you are experiencing hair loss at a young age, then the reasons could be many. Hormonal changes, sedentary lifestyle, and drug abuse can trigger and expedite hair loss. But most importantly, it is genetics. So if your family has a history of hair loss, chances are that you too will experience pre-mature balding. And if that is the case, then you can’t escape it – what you can surely do is consider hair transplantation – It can be potentially be the solution to help you look the way you want to and also cure depression that might have set in.
Hair transplant is a procedure wherein hair from the donor area (back or side of the head usually) is transplanted onto the recipient or balding area. Popularly, two methods are used - FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation) and FUE-Hair-Transplant(Follicular Unit Extraction). In the former, a narrow strip of scalp is removed from the donor area and follicular units from this strip are surgically transplanted. Whereas in an FUE, individual grafts are extracted and transplanted on to the balding area. FUE is normally the preferred method; it is minimally invasive and is proven to give great results.
So if you thought that with hair loss, it was the end of the road for you, then you are mistaken. Modern science allows you to not only challenge your fate but gives you the opportunity to change it as well. Hair transplantation is one such tool. It allows you to script your own fate and challenge destiny. It gives you the freedom to look the way you want to. It is therapeutic and heals you in ways that are not immediately apparent. It helps you regain your confidence. Allows you to express yourself without self-doubt. It restores your energy and zest for life.
So the bottom line is – if you are experiencing hair loss and are depressed as a result of it – worry not, help is at hand. All you have to do is consult an expert. Share your problems and let them take over – let them help you to stay healthy and happy – because ultimately, that is all that matters.
