What are the top reasons why men lose confidence these days? Studies suggest that the male of the species stress most about hair loss, beer bellies, and flabby pecs.
Of the three, hair loss is the most important concern that can threaten their confidence and feeling of self worth. Male pattern baldness, after all, is much more severe in men than in women because it occurs faster and is not just concentrated in one area of the head. Men can lose it all at the crown, temples and all parts of their head, leaving wispy strands that sometimes make the appearance even more awkward.
There are various solutions to regain one’s head of hair. Topical treatments and hair supplements, wigs, toupees, hair weaves, a hairstyle change or shaving may help alleviate the problem and offer some hope. But none of these are truly effective, long-term and permanent.
The only long-term and permanent solution that will bring back lost hair in places where they have disappeared is a hair transplant procedure. If you want to grow your own hair – accent on the words “your own hair” – naturally and permanently, it is the only way to go.
MAXiM Hair Restoration, a 13-year old international hair transplant clinic established in New York City that opened in Manila in 2004, is the recognized expert on hair transplantation and other solutions to balding.
It offers hair transplant procedures that can either be the advanced no-stitch, no linear scar technique called Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) or the conventional hair transplant technique known as Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT). Both enable clients to grow back their hair via hair transplantation by harvesting hair from a donor area and placing hair grafts on the bald area. It also offers Scalp Micropigmentation, a non-surgical method that produces a short buzz-cut look without the client undergoing an actual transplant.
Staffed by doctors who are plastic surgeons assisted by certified nurses who serve as hair technicians, MAXiM Manila has happy clients that include professionals, international models and entertainment/sports celebrities, including balikbayans and overseas workers who choose to have hair transplants for personal and professional advancement.
PBA legend and team manager Alvin Patrimonio is one of the clients who went to MAXiM to find a permanent solution for thinning hair.
“I was losing my hair so I took medicines and applied topical treatments but they didn’t work for me. I heard about MAXiM, researched about it, then I visited their clinic. The Director, Mr. Mac Fadra, their country manager, Mar Sabillo and hair transplant plastic surgeon Dr. John Ocampo all explained the procedure to me. To be honest, I am really afraid of surgeries. During my playing years, I refused to undergo any surgery. But the people in MAXiM showed me how the procedure would go and showed me photos of their successful and happy clients, so I decided to give it a try.
Finally I had the guts to have the hair transplant. And now I’m glad that I did. During the procedure, I was watching TV or playing with my cellphone. There was no discomfort at all. Afterwards, the post-surgery hair care routine was explained to me. It was easy and hassle-free — very easy to follow. Now, seven months later, I am really happy with the results. I no longer feel insecure when the TV cameras focus on me and I would definitely recommend it to my friends. The results are permanent. And the hair on my head is all mine,” Patrimonio said.
“MAXiM is focused and super-specialized on hair restoration that’s why we do it well. The center specializes in MEGA Sessions where patients can get 4,000 hair grafts in just one visit instead of multiple visits. Prices are affordable,” added MAXiM Director Mac Fadra.
MAXiM has 10 other centers worldwide in New York, Dallas, Chicago, Houston, Long Island, Newport Beach in California and North Virginia/DC in the US and Dubai and Manila in Asia that have serviced thousands of clients worldwide.
