Why a Hair Transplant is Better Than A Hairpiece

So you are losing your hair and are looking for a way to get your hair back. After watching countless infomercials on late night television you think a non-surgical hair system might be the answer for your hair loss. However one thing to keep in mind is a hairpiece is a hairpiece is a hairpiece! It doesn’t matter what you call it! You can refer to it as strand by strand? Do you prefer non-surgical replacement? How about laser hair replacement? Or, what about a bio-matrix? That sounds interesting. Do you like poly fuse? I think you get the idea. Then there are the less tactful ways of referring to a non-surgical hair system such as a wig, a hairpiece or a toupee (ouch)! How do you feel if someone calls it a rug? That's not good! The point I am trying to make is whatever you call the hair attachment, it's all the same thing. A non-surgical hair replacement solution is just that! It is not growing out of your head. It needs to be maintained and replaced often or it will look extremely fake!

The worst part of this story is that about 90% of all male wearers of these non-surgical systems are fantastic candidates for a permanent surgical hair implant procedure. Once completed, a hair implant requires no maintenance. If done properly by a hair loss specialist, the hair will never fall out! It will continue to grow forever. Also, if you choose the right hair specialist the first time around then your hair implant will be virtually undetectable. The only maintenance required is shampooing, conditioning and a hair cut! In addition, the cost of a hair surgery is extremely less than if you continue to wear the fake hair for only a few years.

A quick cost comparison will show you the money you could save simply be using your having your own natural hair. The cost of your hair system will most likely be around $1,200 to $1,500 to get started. That will include the initial "installation.” At that initial installation you will be offered a series of options for maintenance. Here is where things get a little tricky. These options will range from a few hundred dollars a month to as much as $1,200 a month. The cold hard truth is you will need to replace these things every few months and have them properly serviced. This will run you $500 a month, minimum. That comes out to $6,000 a year, not even including the first $1,500 or so to get started. At $6,000 a year, the math is easy. After just four years of wearing a hair system the price tag is a whopping $25,000. Using that $25,000 as a benchmark, I can assure you beyond a shadow of a doubt, you could fund several MaxHarvest surgical hair restoration procedures although you probably won't need that many.

Some people are so tied to the appearance of having hair from use of a hair system that there is a transition period between having a full head of fake hair to having a full head of real hair. First, you must know your personal expectations. If you are emotionally attached to the hair system and the appearance it gives you, you may have to make this a two-step process. The first step will be to have a MaxHarvest surgical hair loss procedure. The second step would be a follow-up procedure one-year post-op. Allow the first surgery to completely heal for 10 days, and continue to wear your hair system with a semi permanent attachment. This way you will be able to wear your hair system during the day and remove it at night. You will want to take it off at night for the new hair to grow in properly. You may also consider wearing a hat on weekends. While you wait for your real hair to grow in, you will be able to have the best of both worlds.

Hair wearers are told repeatedly that a hair surgery will never give them the thick youthful look that is accomplished easily with a non-surgical option. However, a hair wearer can avoid this issue if he seeks out a hair restoration practice that performs the MaxHarvest procedure. The MaxHarvest procedure will move the maximum hair possible in one procedure. Dr. Brett Bolton has had tremendous success with helping hair wearers remove their hairpieces. Dr. Bolton believes the MaxHarvest technique is a major reason why this works. This will enable the hair wearer to get much more coverage and density. Other conventional hair clinics move a limited amount of hair grafts based on a cost per graft. For maximum density and a true final result, the hair wearer should consider a second MaxHarvest procedure. However, this will be totally optional and in many cases not needed. It will all depend on personal expectations. Meanwhile, at anytime during the entire growth stage of the surgery, the hair wearer may remove the hair system when he feels comfortable with his result.
While it usually takes a year for your hair to come around to its full potential, some people will start to see results in as little as 3 months. This is not the norm, but it does happen. In the end natural is better. Your hair is better than any non-surgical system, because after all, no matter what you called it, a hairpiece is still a hairpiece.

    I came to Dr. Bolton from Tampa, FL, and I would not regret it. I am 19 years old, and was very anxious and scared at first, but Dr. Bolton and his team made it very comfortable for me during the surgery. I am 4 months in and am already very happy for the results. He is one of the best in the business. Would definitely recommend him.

    I am more than happy with the procedure I had with Dr. Bolton a few days ago. This is my third hair transplant and my only regret is that he didn’t do the first two. He and his staff are extremely professional and accommodating, creating a very comfortable environment. I would highly recommend using Dr. Bolton. With Dr. Bolton’s procedure, I...

    Went in on June 2019 and I am now enjoying the fact that I never have to wear a hat ever again! Toons of compliments from co-workers, friends and family telling me that my hair looks longer or my hair is growing. Definitely a life changing procedure. Very helpful staff. Dr. Bolton and Josh are the greatest. They help you with everything. I wouldn’t...

I am only at 4.5mos post-op (Full results are typically at 12mos). Josh was my patient advisor and provided me with realistic expectations and answered all of my questions. Procedure is...

    I had my HT procedure on June 30, 2020. Both Josh and Dr. Bolton were amazing! It's only been 2 weeks and I'm satisfied. The procedure was painless, it was like i went to a barbershop actually. the scar in the back of my head is barely noticeable even when i shave the back of my head. I am patiently waiting for my hair to grow. I highly recommend...

    My experience with Dr Bolton and Josh has been amazing. I came to Dr Bolton as a very skeptical patient. After years of been scammed by one company after another promising that they “had the cure”, I honestly didn’t think anything would work. Dr Bolton and Josh were very upfront and honest with me from the very beginning. The surgery and...
