Does Baldness Cause Depression in Men?

According to the legend, Delilah cut off Samson’s hair one night while he was sleeping, causing him to lose his strength and confidence. Despite being thousands of years old, this story rings true to millions of men across the world today. The full psychological effects of hair loss are still unknown to the medical community. Again, it is coming to light that it may be having increasingly severe implications for those suffering with it.

It is common for men to realise they are beginning to thin on top during their twenties. However, the rate at which their hairline then recedes is specific to them as an individual.

For those that lose a lot of hair quickly, it can have a drastic effect on their self-image.

In some cases, this can lead to mental health problems which are often exacerbated by their reluctance to discuss how affected they are by their experience. It can become a heavy burden.

Hair Restoration is More than just a Cosmetic Issue

At Crown Clinic, we don’t see hair restoration as a cosmetic issue. We understand the low self-esteem and sense of shame that some men feel around their hair loss. Because of this, we take pride in the work we carry out, not just in the way our patients look but in the way they feel after undergoing a hair transplant procedure.

Once the results of a transplant are in full bloom, they can restore confidence and sense of self completely. It can’t be overstated how much this can enrich a patient’s life. From their love life to career prospects – the potential positives that can come from undergoing the procedure are boundless.
