Hair loss can affect both men and women and can happen at any time. It may be temporary, or it may be permanent but to some people, especially women, it can be devastating for self-esteem and confidence.
Receding, thinning hair or bald patches may respond to hair transplant treatment, providing you have sufficient follicles or hair growth that can be used for the transplant, or if the hair loss has not been caused by medical treatment or stress.
For North Americans, Mexico offers an exceptionally convenient location, which for those short-on-time is of particular importance. The choice of locations across the country is also a big draw, from beautiful beaches, to Colonial cities and the remnants of ancient civilizations
Mexico has more than its fair share of excellent clinic facilities located around the country, staffed with well-qualified and experienced staff who have the expertise to deliver clinical excellence.
These days Mexico is far from being a third-world country when it comes to healthcare. Recently there has been an increase in investment in private hospitals and clinics, and Mexico is fast becoming one of the world’s go-to medical tourist destinations, because of its facilities, expertise and competitive prices. Mexico’s healthcare has been described by International Living magazine as very good to excellent.
Despite this, we do recommend that it is always worth checking out your doctor and clinic, and doing a little background research. It’s important to find out what you can about your procedure, and also to read reviews from patients who have had it.
We perform quality checks on our doctors, verifying qualifications and professional memberships, as well as criminal and legal records. It just isn’t worth the risk of going to an unreliable doctor, so make sure you book with someone you can trust.
It really depends on the type of method used and how much I harvested. A large transplant of 2000 hairs could take 5 or 6 hours, whereas a small one of 500 hairs takes around an hour and a half.
After the transplant your scalp will be sore and you will probably have scabs in the areas where your hair was harvested from. You can return to work after a few days, although for esthetic reasons most people don’t return for at least a week. If you can get away with wearing a hat or a scarf then there’s always that option.
It’s important to note that the newly transplanted hair will fall out and won’t grow again for a few months.
The prices vary depending on the number of grafts required, the number of sessions and the particular technique used, but in Mexico hair transplants cost as little as $2,300 compared to $4,000 - $15,000 in the United States.
