Are Hair Plugs Worth the Trouble?

Hair plugs are a popular solution for those dealing with hair loss. They involve surgically transplanting small sections of healthy hair to areas where hair has thinned or gone completely bald.

If you’re suffering from rapid hair loss, plugs sound like an ideal solution, but there are some major downsides to plugs that go beyond expense and time commitment.

Before you leap into hair plug surgery, weigh all the pros and cons before deciding if this is the right option for you.

Let’s take a closer look at hair plugs and why an all-natural approach to hair loss is the better solution for any man or woman that wants to restore their head of hair.

What Are the Risks of Hair Plugs?

Hair plugs are a popular solution for hair loss, but many risks are associated with this procedure. Hair plug surgery is an invasive and expensive process requiring multiple visits to the doctor’s office to complete it.

Additionally, it can be painful and lead to scarring, infection, or even further hair loss due to damage caused by the transplantation process.

Hair plugs are small pieces of healthy scalp tissue transplanted into balding areas to replace lost hair follicles. The problem is that these transplants don’t always take and may end up causing more damage than good by creating an uneven look or even damaging existing follicles.

Additionally, the procedure has been known to cause further trauma, which could also contribute to the additional shedding of existing hairs from the same area where the transplant was done.

Hair Plugs Aren’t Cheap

While any medical treatment is going to come with a bill, hair plugs are an unnatural treatment that come with expenses that far outweigh the visual results this operation creates.

Hair plug pricing ranges based on how much work a person needs on their head. This is considered cosmetic surgery and is not covered by most insurance plans.

So, if you’re considering plugs, be prepared to pay between $4,000 and $15,000 out of pocket for a surgery where results may vary.

The Recovery Process is Hairy

Recovering from a hair transplant can be both time-consuming and uncomfortable. The recovery process typically takes anywhere from six to twelve months, depending on the nature of your procedure and how well you take care of yourself during the healing period.

The Lack of Natural Results

After your hair transplant, your scalp will still look like it has plugs, and the overall effect is often quite unnatural.

Furthermore, because the results of this procedure may not always be as expected or look natural, many people find themselves unsatisfied with their appearance after undergoing treatment that costs them thousands of dollars.

Limited Hair Styles

After getting hair plugs, scarring is inevitable. Therefore, you are extremely limited when it comes to the hairstyles you are able to choose after getting plugs. That is, unless you’re willing to show off your surgical scars to enjoy the latest trends.
