The article further adds that the leading cause of hair loss is male pattern baldness (MPB), a condition caused in large part by genetics. In MPB, a man’s hair follicles shrinks until they can no longer sprout hair. Oftentimes, the only recourse is to get hair transplant surgery, a process wherein healthy follicles are grafted to areas that can no longer grow hair.
However, the cost of such a procedure can be prohibitive, leading many sufferers of MPB to get hair transplant in Mexico instead. This is part of the growing trend called medical tourism where patients travel abroad to get treatment for a considerably lower price.
