Hair loss can effect men and women in different ways. If you have only just started losing your hair, then you may be going through the shock and fear that the start of hair loss often provokes in people. For those who have suffered from hair loss for years, however, their baldness may simply be an accepted if unwanted part of who they are. Regardless of your specific situation, you may have concerns about what life will be like after a hair transplant procedure. It is not uncommon to experience anxiety over a hair transplant. After all, while you may want your full head of hair back, you may also be worried about what others will think after you turn up for work with noticeably more hair on your head. The good news is that these anxieties are not unusual and below we will show you how you can deal with them effectively.
Hair restoration anxiety?
Most people would understand why hair loss itself would cause anxiety, but hair restoration anxiety often sounds a bit more perplexing. But anxiety over regaining your hair is completely normal. If you are experiencing such anxiety what you are probably worried about is whether or not your hair transplant will be mocked or looked down upon by your friends, coworkers, and loved ones. After all, a hair transplant can lead to a big change in your appearance, so it is only natural that you would feel a little self-conscious about how such a sudden change will be perceived by others. Additionally, you may be worrying about whether the hair transplant itself will leave you with any unsightly scars.
No need to worry
The good thing is that these anxieties are often overblown. Hair transplants are very common nowadays, so it is very unlikely that you would ever be judged or ridiculed for having one. Chances are the only feedback you will be getting about your hair is about how good it looks! Furthermore, with NeoGraft hair transplants, there is little to no bleeding or stitching, so you shouldn’t have to worry about any unappealing scars appearing on your head.
Take some time
If, however, you are still worried about what life will be like after your hair transplant, you may want to consider scheduling a few days off work and away from people you know following your treatment. These few days will allow you to become comfortable with your new hair and to interact with strangers so that you can feel more confident in your hair transplant. Confidence, after all, is a huge part of what hair transplants are all about! After these few days you should have become used to your new look enough to face your coworkers and loved ones without any of the anxieties that you were experiencing before the procedure.
