New And Exciting Survey Affirms World Wide Growth In Hair Restoration Procedures

Dr. Parsa Mohebi of US Hair Restoration in Los Angeles, CA continues to see an increase in men and women seeking a permanent solution for hair loss.
Nov. 12, 2011 - PRLog -- At the 2011 International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery (ISHRS) Scientific Meeting in Anchorage, Alaska the 2010 Hair Restoration Industry statistics were unveiled. The ISHRS is the leading medical authority on hair loss and hair restoration, and their findings affirm the lax economic state of the world did not stop the industry from pressing forward into a new season of profitability.

There was approximately 279,381 hair restoration procedures performed worldwide in 2010, which was an increase of 11 percent from 2008.  This advancement coincides with a significant jump in the total number of hair restoration patients worldwide – from 811,363 patients in 2008 to 923,599 patients in 2010.

“Hair is an important part of everyone’s life. As we have shown in our published study of the psychology of hair transplantation (, modern hair restoration can restore people’s natural hair in a way which makes it undetectable from a normal head of hair. The latest technology in hair restoration allows us to renew the sense of self-confidence to many who feel inadequate because of balding.” Said Dr. Mohebi who continued, “The trend we are seeing which was confirmed through the recent ISHRS study, shows more and more people are getting hair restorations. It is clear that we will see a decrease of balding in our communities over the next few years.”

Most individuals might believe only older men are undergoing hair restoration surgery, but the survey found that the majority (83 percent) of first time hair restoration patients in 2010 were between 30 and 49 years old.  In addition to this, although the majority of hair restoration patients are men, women are increasingly seeking help for hair loss.  In 2010, 85.9 percent of all hair restoration surgical patients worldwide were male and 14.1 percent were female.  Since 2004, the number of female surgical hair restoration patients worldwide increased an impressive 24 percent.
