Hair Transplants: Why the stigma?

Made popular by famous celebrities such as Elton John, Wayne Rooney, Jimmy Carr and now Sam Smith, hair and beard transplants are becoming more and more popular throughout the world. However, why do so many patients keep it a secret, and why does there still seem to be a stigma around the topic?

If your teeth were yellow and rotting away, you’d want to get new ones, right? What about if you broke your nose, you’d get it straightened wouldn’t you? In 2020, boob jobs and lip fillers are now very accepted and popular procedures, aren’t they? So why is it that when a man (or a woman) goes for a hair transplant is it such a big surprise for everyone?

We live in a world where because of social media, we care about our image more than ever before, and although we should embrace the fact that we are ‘amazing just the way we are’, why shouldn’t we try to be a better version of ourselves? At the end of the day it’s all about what makes you happy, and if having more hair on your head helps you to do that, why not give it a whirl?

It is of course very understandable that a lot of people decide to keep it a secret, as a hair transplant is a very big deal and a life changing procedure. Many individuals feel that they are judged for losing their hair, and in reality, it is something that is largely out of their control. Other patients keep it under wraps because they worry about how successful it will be or even if it will work at all. A large amount of people are concerned about their friends banter and becoming the laughing stock of the group. Men may even be embarrassed to tell the opposite sex through fear of them thinking the whole process makes them less of the man. However, despite all of this, none of it matters. It is not your fault that you are losing your hair, it will be successful because in this day and age the vast majority of UK hair transplants results are amazing, your friends will be jealous when you rock the new hairline in 6 to 18 months and the opposite sex will be impressed that you have no shame about the whole process.

If you want to keep it a secret, it really is your decision, but you should seriously consider the amount of bottle it takes to go through the process and the admiration people will have for you afterwards. We are in 2020, a fantastic age where going bald is now a choice. Hair transplants will become more and more popular as the years go on and shortly will be more common than not. Be one of the people that sets the trend, up your confidence and change your life today. To get your instant hair quote click here, it might just be the best decision you ever make.
