If you think appearances don’t matter, you need to think again. Imagine you go to work one day for an important meeting, and our manager shows up in sweatpants. It is very likely that what he was wearing that day will garner more attention than what he actually said in the meeting. People are wired to judge others by their physical experiences and often form opinions about others based on how they look. While it is an unhealthy habit, it does happen.   

There will be opportunities when we will find ourselves in that situation, being judged by others based on how we look, how we dress, and we won’t be able to do anything about it. It is particularly true for working professionals who meet new people every day.  

Experts say that how you curate your appearance is not about having good looks, but the right look. We work on our look according to how we want to be perceived. It has also been noted that managers favor the fervor of youth over years of experience. It is especially true for sectors like tech, or any profession that involves interacting with people. 

One of the big concerns for men in their 30s or 40s is how they will look with bald spots since it takes away the youthfulness off your appearance. It is absolutely commendable if you can own your physical appearance no matter how other people see it, but balding or losing hair is something that is bothering you and affecting your confidence, a hair restoration is a good solution.

A minor surgical procedure, hair restoration is an effective solution for male pattern baldness or Androgenic Alopecia. The process involves extracting hair follicles from the donor areas of your scalp, the back and sides of the head, and transplanting them on to the bald spots. Since the procedure transplants roots of the hair, these grafts adapt to the transplant area and starts producing regular hair. 

Hair loss is traumatic at any age since having a head full of hair is construed to be a mark of beauty and youth. We are conditioned to associate balding with being old. And that brings in a loss of self-confidence and self-assuredness. For some people, it can take up a lot of their mind space and make them doubt themselves in their personal and professional lives.

Often it is also a matter of self-esteem, some people suffering from hair loss might not care about what other people think, but they do care about how they think of themselves. A loss of self-esteem can be very damaging to your mental health. A hair transplant is a good way to improve your self-image and be at ease with yourself.

Modern hair transplant procedures like Follicular unit extraction (FUE) is effective, minimally invasive and almost painless. FUE and FUT are readily available in India, and there are lots of good clinics offering these services. Hair transplant in India is an evolved sector and all modern technologies are available. In fact, there are a lot of foreign patients who visit India to undergo these procedures. Equipped with modern state-of-the-art technology, India doctors are considered amongst the best in the world.

The only thing to be careful about is not falling into the trap of advertising and finding a deal or a low-cost clinic, instead of a good one. Look for a reputed surgeon, and do your research on the technology they use and look for reviews from their former patients. It’s a matter of finding the right surgeon, and you can have your mane and your self-confidence back.
