For most men, having a full head
of hair is what makes them feel
confident, handsome and, well, sexy.
Good hair is a reason why thousands
of women swoon over hunky
Hollywood actors like Brad Pitt
and Tom Cruise and it’s kind of
like your right arm, you just assume
it will always be there.
But what if it isn’t?
According to the American Hair
Loss Association, by the age of 50,
approximately 85 percent of men
will suffer from male pattern baldness
and, for some men it starts
sooner rather than later. And while
some men can pull off the shaved head
look, for others, even in their
20s, baseball caps, cowboy hats or
sunglasses on their heads become
everyday accessories as they try to
shield their balding pates.
Fortunately the days of resorting
to terrible toupees and poorly done
plugs have disappeared, as today’s
modern technology offers delicate
hair transplant surgeries from doctors
so precise they’re certain no one can
detect the surgery even happened.
Meet Steve, a Palm Beach County
man in his 30s who had hair transplantation
six months ago.
He already feels like a different
person with his new head of hair and
if you saw him today, he promises no
one would be able to tell he was once
on the verge of baldness.
“I don’t feel like I’m the most
superficial person in the world, but
it just bothers you when you’re a
guy and you start losing hair,” says
Steve. “I had no confidence at all.
It messes with you mentally. Now I
already feel more confident. It was
100 percent worth it.”
