Hair loss can be a real issue for both men and women. Fortunately, there are hair treatments. If you are a man and intend to have a hair transplant, you should do it. A new study shows that men with hair are considered to be more attractive and successful.
The new research was developed by Johns Hopkins University, and it was actually more of a survey. More than one hundred participants were asked to state their opinion on people who had hair transplant. There were thirteen pictures with men before and after they had the procedure.
Approximately half of the participants in the survey were women, and half of them were men. The final results showed that men with hair and those who had hair transplant were considered to be more attractive and younger. On average, almost four years were added to the real age of men who had hair transplant. They were also associated with higher career levels.
The leader of the study was doctor Lisa Ishii (Johns Hopkins University). The idea of the study occurred to her because patients would ask for specific numbers and statistics of the level of satisfaction of previous patients and how other people around them would perceive the change. As there were no cogent results and studies on the subject, doctor Lisa Ishii decided to start one herself.
She talked to Reuters Health about her reasons:
“We’ve been doing these procedures for years and everyone assumes it does something for your appearance, but we never measured that.”
Doctor Lisa Ishii is pleased with the results and now she is more confident when talking to patients, since there is evidence she can rely on and through which she can assure the patients. She further declared:
“I find I’m able to make much more scientific and objective conversation with them with regard to what their expectations should be.”
She said that the procedure could vary from a doctor to another.
Although men with hair are considered to be more attractive and successful, bold men are also appreciated. Generally, bold men are associated with strength. Also, being bold makes you look taller. Besides, there are many bold men who are also considered to be attractive.
The team of researchers is aware that their study is based on a small number of participants, but it is a good way to start. They also intend to enlarge upon the existing data.
