Hair Transplant in Puerto Vallarta

The Ultimate Guide to Hair Transplant in Puerto Vallarta

Find a solution to thinning or balding hair with a hair transplant in Puerto Vallarta.

You may suffer from baldness or a receding hairline or a bald patch at the crown. After menopause many women suffer from thinning and scanty hair. Auto-immune disorders and certain medicines also contribute to hair loss and one of the main causes of baldness is heredity.

While you can try different methods to stem hair loss, whether these are home remedies or natural cures, only minoxidil is FDA approved for regrowth of hair. However, it is not a permanent method and may not work in all cases. Plus when you stop using it you will start losing hair again and it is expensive to boot. Hair transplant is a lasting solution to baldness and transplanted hair will grow as the original did and will not become thin again.

Why consider hair transplant in Puerto Vallarta?

Being a cosmetic surgery procedure, hair transplant is not covered by medical insurance and it can work out very expensive, particularly if you need large areas covered. To get round the problem of affordability, you should go where the surgery is reasonably priced and one of the places that is easily accessible from Canada and North America is Puerto Vallarta with many direct flights available from most cities.

Puerto Vallarta is a popular tourist and medical tourist destination. It has state of the art medical facilities and well qualified English speaking doctors who provide surgery at cheap rates. It also has a lot to offer a holiday maker in terms of blue water, beaches, warm climate, numerous dining and entertainment options and much more. You can indulge in water sports, take in breathtaking natural sites or simply have a relaxing holiday.

What is the time taken for hair transplant and what is the recovery period that I can expect?

The time taken for hair transplant surgery varies and depends on how much area has to be covered and which technique is used. There are two main types of hair transplant methods, one is Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) and the other is Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT). FUE works by removing a single hair and transplanting it so is more time consuming and used for minor work. Modern methods make FEU the preferred choice as it does not leave scars and gives a more natural result. FUT works by removing small strips of hair, cutting them smaller and then transplanting them. The hair is removed from the back of the head nearer the neckline and then transplanted.

You may be in surgery for four to eight hours, or you may space it out over a few days if a lot of work is required. Your head will be sore, though in FUE scabs may be barely visible. You will need time off for at least two to three days after surgery and will be mobile. The transplanted hair will fall off and then re-grow and result may take between six months to a year to be apparent.

What is the cost of hair transplant?

Hair transplant is expensive surgery and prices range from US$ 4,000 to US$ 15,000 in the U.S. and Canada depending on how much hair has to be transplanted. In Puerto Vallarta you have to pay much less and prices start at an average of US$ 4,000.
