Hair transplants – the surgical procedure that removes donor hair follicles and implants them in blading and troubled areas of the scalp, is nothing new. Yes, modern techniques and new innovations have made hair transplants better overall – but they have been around for many, many years.
In the U.S., hair transplants are getting popular for everything from getting back a youthful appearance to even adding facial hair for men who would like to participate in the “hipster” trend. For women, hair transplants are growing to also include transplants to restore damaged eyebrows and make them fuller and even some pubic hair transplants are starting to pop up as a trend today.
A recent post on Refinery 29 talks about a recent movement in Korea where women are starting to grow out the hair on their intimate parts – or if they cannot are looking at hair transplants to assist.
Just as with a typical hair transplant on the scalp, donor follicles from healthy parts of the body are removed and then implanted into those areas so they too can grow hair.
Reportedly, in Korea, this is seen as sign of sexual health and fertility.
Over in Pakistan, the latest news headlines talk about the rising popularity of hair transplants. Business Insider recently featured a report on one man’s decision to have a hair transplant after seeing immediate results for a family member.
Like the women in Korea, the men in Pakistan value a full head of hair as a sign of virility and not having hair can easily cause someone to be mocked and ridiculed. To try and curb this, there is a growing industry of ointments and remedies that propose to grow longer locks and beards and hair transplant advertisements are seen everywhere.
For Pakistani women that still have arranged marriages – suffering from hair loss can be detrimental to landing a proposal – so hair transplants are helping to change lives in this culture as well.
Whether you live in the U.S. and want to rock a hipster look, or in Korea and looking to spruce up your intimate areas, or you’re in Pakistan and want to fit in with the rest, hair transplants seem to be a common solution to world of differences.
