They become shy and try to minimise any social interactions as they feel they have a poor aesthetic appearance and this may lead to negative judgements about them.

  • Increases self-esteem: When someone has a bald spot, if often makes them look at themselves differently. Sometimes, this changed perspective brings down the morale and the esteem of the individual.

  • Lesser judgements: Accept it or not, in today’s day and age, society judges individuals on any and every possible aspect. When it comes to having a bald spot, society judges people on appearance and unusual features. After undergoing a hair transplant procedure, society looks at these people with a more normal, neutral perspective and does not judge them based on a physical feature.
