Every few years, the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery conducts a survey. They look at trends in hair restoration procedures around the world and present their findings in an attempt to raise awareness for hair loss and hair loss treatments.
Often, this type of data is used to help secure funding for new technologies, advocacy and awareness, and scientifically backed research for conditions such as alopecia, male pattern baldness, and women’s hair loss.
We’ve included a couple of their most recent findings below, based on participant survey responses:
- In 2014, 112,409 hair restoration procedures were performed in the United States alone. This represents a 27% increase from 2012 – 2014.
- Worldwide, the number of men undergoing hair loss procedures went down 2% from 2012 to 2014, while the number of women undergoing procedures went up 12%.
What does this mean for you?
It means that the field of hair restoration is continuing to grow, as more and more men and women are opting to do something proactive about their hair loss. It also means that you’re in good company, and should never feel ashamed or embarrassed by your hair loss. It’s a treatable problem that happens to people – men and women – all around the world.
