3 Ways Men Deal with Balding

Balding may be a natural part of life, but that doesn’t mean it is easy to deal with. Going bald can bring feelings of insecurity and shame with it, but it doesn’t have to. Technological and medical advancements have helped millions of men look young again.

Take a look at some of the top ways men combat hair loss down below.

Hair Transplant Surgery

Some men elect to solve their hair troubles by going through a hair transplant surgery. There are many different types of hair transplant surgery methods. One of the most common methods is hair transplantation. With this method, areas of the scalp that are able to grow hair are grafted and relocated to a thinning area of the scalp. 

Another method is a flap surgery, where scalp tissue with hair is moved on the top of the head. Or, your doctor may opt for a tissue expansion surgery, where the hair bearing parts of the scalp are expanded to cover balding spots. Hair transplant surgeries are usually done by a plastic surgeon.

However, something to keep in mind that a hair transplant doesn’t guarantee that your hair will grow back. Usually, it is not recommended that people suffering from widespread baldness go forward with a hair transplant surgery. These surgeries can also be very costly, so one should only go forward with a hair transplant if they truly believe it is the best option for them and their scalp.

Scalp Micropigmentation

A new, unconventional procedure that many men have relied on to fight their hair loss is scalp micropigmentation. According to SMPGeorgia.com, “scalp micropigmentation provides instant restoration on your hairline the natural way.” Scalp micropigmentation works by applying small micropigments, similar to the pigments applied to the skin for a tattoo, to areas of the scalp that are balding. This fills in the hairline, creating the illusion that your hairline is much more full than it actually is.

However, you can even benefit from scalp micropigmentation if you have completely lost your hair. The pigments can be used to make it look like you recently shaved your head, giving you a fashion forward look in just a few treatments.


Of course, you can always try out medications to help stimulate hair growth. The type of medication you are prescribed will depend on the cause of your hair loss. If your hair loss is the result of an underlying health condition, you doctor will likely prescribe you medication to help treat or suppress that condition in an effort to help your hair grow. However, there are several medications that are aimed to treat hair loss specifically rather than another health condition. Some of the most common medications to treat hair loss include Rogaine and Propecia. If you are interested in using medication to treat your hair loss, you should reach out to your doctor as  soon as possible.

No matter what type of treatment you choose, you won’t be stuck with a bald head forever.
