Facing the Zoom-boom?
Covid-19 is fuelling a Zoom-boom in cosmetic and hair transplant surgery
Because of the rise of video-conferencing during the pandemic, we are all spending hours on staring at our own faces and hairlines and, inevitably, comparing them with those of others. Poor lighting and the skewed angles of laptop cameras are rarely flattering. At first, hair transplant surgeons had expected the pandemic to hammer business. Instead the industry is now enjoying a Zoom-boom. At Dr. Feriduni Hair Clinic, we tend to see an increase of 25% of applications for a hair transplant. This for men, women and transgender. Hair transplantation, beard transplants, eyelashes and eyebrows and hairline lowering are the most popular these times. An interesting turn, we can say.
"My high forehead never bothered me more since lockdown. And believe me, I've tried all the camera angles you can think off. If I could, I would put my camera off during videocalls."
When you focus too much on wat you don't like at yourself, this might get bigger and take over your thoughts. Does your high forehead bother you? Is your receding or thinning hairline getting worse? Are you tired of your 'compulsory' shaved or forward-styled haircut? Please know that there is always a solution to make it better. Both psychologically and physically. We're here to listen to your problem, do not hesitate to reach out!
Times aren't easy for a while. People get confronted with themselves more than ever and dark thoughts arise. For more than 20 years we have experienced in our clinic how bad the self-image of our patients are. One resigns to a receding hairline or thinning hair, the other simply cannot let it go. This spiral often deteriorates: people compare themselves non-stop with others, and social media and currently also te neverending videocalls often pushes them under. After all, baldness or a high forehead do not match with the current beauty standards.
Self-love is not selfish or narcissistic; it's the standard for your well-being. Unfortunately, you cannot prevent baldness or a high forehead. So far they haven't invented miracle pills. However, with a hair transplant, hairlines can be beautifully reconstructed and in combination with medical therapy, further hair loss can be stopped.
“The happiness in the gaze of our patients is our main daily drive.”
A stroke of luck
One's self-confidence can seem so solid, yet be so fragile. Luckily more and more people dare to take the step and recognize and tackle their problem. Yes, good hair transplants aren't cheap, but you enjoy a lifelong result. And that self-image will automatically find its way back. “I have more than 20 years of experience in hair transplantation and my motivation only is to see my patients thrive. That's the beautiful part in our job; we create happiness. For many, a hair transplant seems a cold and aesthetic event, but it is so much more. People are vulnerable, and everyone in our team takes that into account unconditionally. The patient always comes first.” Dr. Feriduni also helps people who have been confronted with baldness due to cancer, scars or burns. For this purpose his Foundation was set up, in which he strives to treat a patient free of charge every month.
