How a Hair Transplant Can Help Restore Your Confidence

It’s no secret that a person’s confidence is oftentimes tied to the state of their hair. Many people who end up experiencing hair loss take their hair for granted while they’ve got it, but many of them feel their self-esteem quickly drop once it starts disappearing. Suddenly they don’t feel as youthful as they used to, and they’re not as willing to show off what they’ve got up top. When they don’t look the way they want to, the discomfort they feel in their own skin can affect many other aspects of their life. It’s for that reason many feel a solution to hair loss is about far more than looks.

Cosmetic surgeries have been an accepted & regular part of people’s lives the world over, and hair restoration surgery is certainly no exception. Famous people of all stripes have had transplants done, with Elton John’s being the most notable, and Cristiano Ronaldo even started his own clinic recently (which we’ve discussed in a previous blog post).

As people have seen stars improve their own look, they’ve begun to search out that sort of improvement for themselves. While many have found their way to professional clinics run by experienced hair restoration surgeons, such as Modena Hair Institute in Las Vegas, Beverly Hills & Newport, many others have fallen for the temptation of cheap clinics. As we’ve talked about on this blog before, these clinics often have inexperienced & un-knowledgeable people performing procedures, and all they have to offer you is a damaged scalp & torn-down self-esteem.

We at Modena don’t want to see that happen to anyone. That’s why we dedicate our time & focus to offering our patients world-class care & the best results possible. There are a few ways we’ve optimized our process, but it all comes down to one thing: professionalism.

For one, whether you’re receiving an FUE or FUT transplant at Modena, Dr. Yazdan will be the only one performing the procedure. To give his patients the attention needed to complete a successful transplant, he limits himself to performing one procedure a day. Furthermore, he utilizes his years of experience as a physician & hair restoration surgeon, along with his wide range of specialized tools, to give his patients the most natural & healthy results possible.

When patients can enjoy a natural-looking full head of hair & a healthy scalp, one thing is sure to follow: a major confidence boost. Some might say it’s vain to place that much importance on hair, but there’s little else in the world that feels better than looking in the mirror & feeling 10 or 20 years younger. Sometimes that boost in self-esteem is all someone needs to reach out to the world around them, meet new people, and take their life into their own hands. Whether you’re just thinning out a little bit or well into the balding process, getting an FUE or FUT procedure done by an experienced professional can make all the difference in the world for your self-image. Once you get your hair back & regain control over your look, you’ll be that much closer to becoming your most confident self.

Don’t believe us? Ask one of our many patients who have given testimonials about their transplants. As Ming L. of Newport put it, “At the very least, [Dr. Yazdan’s] work is boosting someone’s confidence and self-esteem, and perhaps allowing someone to hold on to their youth a little while longer. At most, your work is saving someone’s life who was disfigured at the hands of an unethical doctor who didn’t think that a hair transplant was ‘all that big of a deal’.” Kevin F. of Las Vegas was similarly happy with Dr. Yazdan’s work, reflecting on his transplant just six days before & saying, “I look a few years younger already.”

How important is physical activity in overall health?

You’ve heard it before: physical activity is a key factor in our overall health and well-being. But just how important is it? Is it still possible to be ‘healthy’ without it? We explore the relationship between physical activity and health below.
There has been extensive research done on the benefits of physical activity. Time and time again, we see that physical activity is directly linked to lower occurrence of illness. In fact, individuals who partake in the recommended levels of physical activity reduce their risk of premature death by 25%.
Benefits of physical activity
Feel good about yourself. Exercise not only releases endorphins which help you feel happier, it also changes your body composition. The natural mood-booster improves self-esteem and self-confidence.
Reduces the risk of serious illnesses like heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, cancer, type 2 diabetes, and osteoporosis. Physical activity has shown to be directly linked to these serious illnesses. Even adding a small amount of exercise to your routine greatly reduces your risk of disease.
Prevent and reduce weight gain. Exercise helps you lose weight and prevents weigh gain. This is great news because obesity is directly correlated to a plethora of serious diseases. Stay active – stay healthy.
Control stress levels. Getting physical is a great way to control stress and anxiety. Focus on overall health not just for your physical body but your mind as well.
How much physical activity should you aim for?
Doctors recommend 30 minutes of physical activity, 5 days a week, at minimum. There should be a combination of heart-healthy cardio as well as muscle-strengthening sessions.
If you’re getting active with weight loss goals in mind, you may want to double the gym time. Experts suggest 1 hour per day, 5 days a week to aid in weight loss.
What exactly constitutes as physical activity?
Physical activity is any activity that involves you moving your body. Some people consider ‘breaking a sweat’ or an increased heart rate as the minimum requirement for activity to be considered purposeful physical activity.
Walking, cycling, housework, gardening, dancing, and playing are all considered physical activity. And of course, any cardio or strength-training activities in or outside of the gym.
