Read more Medical Tourism articles: http://j.mp/29NvwO1

Scientists opine that the hair is a great asset humans lose the most. As thousands of them are lost on a daily basis, so do thousands more grow from different parts of the body. Some people have more hairs than the others and men are usually more hairy than women. Much emphasis is usually laid on the hair of the head and the brow because they add beauty to the face when properly cared for.

Genetic problem can lead to excess hair or loss of hair

Women that have a large amount of testosterone in their body usually have hairs growing in certain parts of their body that hair would have been absent normally like on their jaws. This is termed medically as hirsutism. Alopecia is also a medical condition where people have abnormal loss of hair even at a young age. Alopecia totalis is the complete loss of hair. Those suffering from this condition will have not even a strand of hair on their head.

FUE is transfer of hair graft to the recipient

This is a microsurgical operation where live grafts of hairs are transferred from the donor to the recipient. The follicular units or graft are cut along with the skin in a half-circular motion thereby taking the graft under the skin to the outer environment. Popularity of FUE for hair restoration is increasing with the passage of time.

FUE hair restoration treatment enhances hair growth

As one age, the tendency to lose more hair arises and many people will become bald at some point. FUE hair restoration treatment is a procedure that is used to reverse this process. The procedure results in fuller and healthier looking hair. This procedure is mostly utilized by men but can also be used by women.

Hair loss is caused by weak hair follicle

Hair restoration treatment usually aims to strengthen the hair follicle because weakening of hair follicle is what leads to loss of hair. There are different hair treatment options that are used to increase the strength of the hair follicles. All of them have a different approach to action and should be picked carefully to suit the individual.

Hair transplant is necessary for certain individuals

When an individual has lost all or most part of his/her hairs, the only remedy would be a hair transplant. In hair transplant, hair follicle is grafted from a donor unto the recipient. Those who have not lost most of their hair may not necessarily need a hair transplant, rather, hair treatment.

Eyebrow transplant is the cheapest hair procedure

The cost of hair transplant varies with the area of the transplant. In Istanbul, Turkey, eyebrow transplant is the cheapest among all the hair transplant procedure and will cost about € 1450. Other hair transplants includes beard transplant € 2050, hair transplant in one session € 2500 and hair transplant in two sessions € 3500.

Hair transplant prices cover other cost

The price for each type of hair transplant as mentioned above covers other costs such as doctor’s examination, interpretation services, pre and post-operative medications plus medical shampoo, VIP transfer from airport to hotel to hospital and back to airport at the end of the procedure and 2 nights hotel accommodation in a 4 star hotel.

This procedure has one advantage over the rest

The biggest advantage that this procedure has over the rest is that it does not leave a scar. The recovery rate is also very fast that a day after the procedure you can drive home. However, there may be a mild swelling in the area of the transplant 2 to 3 days after the procedure.

Success of Obesity and Bariatric Surgery with a Special Focus on Latin America

Read more Medical Tourism articles: http://j.mp/29NvwO1

According to a recent report by the World Health Organization, the cases of obesity in the world is more than double of what it used to be as of 1980. More than 1.9 billion adults (those 18 years and older) were reported to be obese in 2014 which is about thirteen percent of the world population. The good news is that obesity is preventable.

Bariatric procedure encompasses other procedures

The term bariatric is like an umbrella masking the different procedures culminating in weight loss such as gastric bypass, obesity plastic surgery, laparoscopic gastric banding and so on. Bariatric surgery in Latin America is getting special focus these days due to their recent development in surgical faculties.

Overweight is usually as a result of gross inactivity

Being overweight is usually the fastest way to attract demeaning comments. Majority of people who are overweight usually do not like their condition and would be prepared to do anything to lose the extra pounds. Overweight is also attributed to high inactivity. Engaging in physical activity is vital to burn excess fats and calories.

Dieting and Exercising are the first attempts by people to lose weight

Overweight people who are making an attempt to lose weight, most times, would settle for exercise––running a few meters every day. Others may sign up with a gym and make attempts to be devoted to their activities. Cutting down on diet is usually the next thing they would do. Inasmuch as these are good attempts but sustaining them over a long period of time may not be feasible.

Bariatric surgery is becoming increasingly popular for weight loss

The main focus of bariatric surgery is to limit the amount of food that is consumed or absorbed by the body by reducing the size of the stomach. After the surgery, the patient’s appetite for food is greatly reduced which will result in weight loss in the long run without having to go through the rigors of exercise or miss their favorite meal.

More facilities in Latin America are being offered in bariatric surgery

The success of medical facilities in Latin America to conduct bariatric surgery has a lot to do with their improved facilities. Some of these facilities have also lured United States Board-Certified bariatric surgeons. A good example is Dr. Gonzalez Rodrigo who works in a facility located in Guatemala City known as Angels Abroad.

Patients who have undergone bariatric surgery are offered other supports

The good part of going to a Latin American facility for bariatric surgery (like Mexicali in Mexico) is that the patient will be counseled and given nutritional support. This has helped a large number of obese individuals to have a healthier life leading to a better and improved quality of life.

Increasing numbers of patients are heading to Latin America for bariatric surgery

Citizens of Canada and those in various parts of European countries would prefer to go to a Latin American country to get a bariatric surgery than head to the United States. Coupled with the diversity of bariatric surgery that is carried out there, they also offer the procedure at a cheaper rate than the United States. For example, bariatric surgery in the United States costs between $17,000 and $30,000 while the same procedure would cost only $10,000 in Mexico and $9,000 in Costa Rica. For this reason, patients are ditching the US for Latin America.

Travelers are treated to safe travel

Medical tourists seeking medical care in any of the Latin American countries (Argentina, Mexico, Columbia and Costa Rica) are provided with safe travel options. Latin America is gradually dominating as the best providers of cheap and effective medical health care for the global community.

Getting Back Your Youth with Spiderweb

Read more Medical Tourism articles: http://j.mp/29NvwO1

The first sign of aging on your body will probably show on the skin. As you grow older, the collagen and elastin fibers on your skin particularly on the neck, and face will get loose, causing your skin around the mentioned areas to sag. Getting back your youthful look is no longer a problem and the most interesting part is that you will not have to go through any surgical procedure.

Cells lose their ability to renew rapidly with age

The cell is the basic unit of life. An aggregate of cells forms tissue; an aggregate of tissue forms organ and so on. At a young age, the cells are actively dividing and any damaged or weak tissue such as the collagen fibers will be quickly replaced. As we grow older, the cells will no longer be active in dividing and can no longer renew these elements that keep your skin supple.

Cosmetic surgery scares people from seeking a youthful look

It will be hard to find that someone that does not want to look younger. A good evidence of attempts by people to remain young is the lowering of their ages. However, the idea of going under the knife (cosmetic surgery), the pains that will follow and the high cost of the procedure usually makes them reside to using beauty products.

Scientists have made several attempts in the past to restore youthful skin

Spiderweb technique is not the first attempt to address the problem of aging and sagging skin. Procedures such as mechanical peeling, laser surgery, facial mesotherapy and various other chemical procedures have been employed. Surgery was the extreme and most invasive of them all. The aforementioned techniques have either been used singly or as a combination.

Spiderweb will give you back your youth

The beauty of Spiderweb is that it does not require any surgery and you can get back your tightness and youthful skin in half of an hour. It is that fast. This procedure can guarantee you a look of seven to ten years younger and can be used for the face and body as well. You no longer have to dream of the good looks when you can actually get it.

Spiderweb is a revolutionary appealing formula

The technique was developed by Bülent Cihantimur M.D is known as ‘Threadlift technique’ but he delights to call it the Spiderweb. In this procedure, thin polydioxanone threads are injected under the skin with the aid of very fine needles. These fine threads move to areas with thinning fibers of collagen or elastin and replace them.

Spiderweb technique has many benefits

Unlike most of the previous techniques for rejuvenating the skin, the spiderweb technique does not have side effects. It does not also cause pain and most times, only an anesthetic cream will need to be applied before the procedure commences. The procedure will take an average of 30 minutes to complete while the injected threads will dissolve within six to eight months. The procedure will last between two and three years and stimulate the body to produce more collagen in the area.

Your activities will not be limited

When you go through a surgery, there are certain activities the doctors will ask you to stay clear for some time or for a lifetime as the case may be. Spiderweb technique will not prevent you from doing any of that. You can swim and sunbathe almost immediately after the procedure. There is no healing process too because the skin will not be subjected to intense trauma. The best result has been noticed after four weeks.

The shortness of the evolution of medical tourism in Mexico has been a marvel to those who have followed them up to the present stage of progress. Mexico has been like a pilgrimage for medical tourists seeking dental care but they are gradually placing themselves as the destination where all medical procedures can be obtained.

How Dental Implants can Improve Your Smile

Read more Medical Tourism articles: http://j.mp/29NvwO1

A dental implant is not a new procedure. Its use in its current form dates back to the 1970s and is the best option for those who have missing teeth. The technique has undergone a lot of modifications from what it used to be in years past. Archaeologists have discovered skulls with dental implants made of stones and seashells which show that the process must have begun around 600 A.D.

The success of modern implant lies in the material used

The modern day dental implants make use of titanium. This is because of the nature of the material – biocompatible, strong and light in weight. Unlike several other materials which are rejected by the body, titanium is osseointegrating. Its use redefined the possible options of dental implants and made the process faster and more durable.

Anyone who has lost a tooth is a candidate for dental implant

Certain diseases of the gums frequently lead to loss of tooth or teeth – depending on the extent of the disease. Aging, on the other hand, is the major factor that makes people lose their teeth. No matter the reason for which you have lost a tooth or teeth will make you a candidate for a dental implant.

Certain conditions will affect the success of the procedure

There are health conditions such as uncontrolled diabetes which will affect the success of your dental implant. Other such diseases and conditions that will affect the success of your implant include cancer, radiation of the gum, alcoholism, smoking and uncontrolled gum diseases. These conditions will need to be first tackled before the implant procedure commences.

Having a dental implant has some benefits

In a number of ways, having a dental implant will positively affect your life. Some of the key ways this will happen includes;

*

Improvement in speech: when a good number of the teeth have been lost particularly the incisors and canines, the patient will begin to mumble or say some words incoherently. A dental implant will prevent this.

*
p<>{color:#000;}. Restore self-esteem and comfort: having full white dental will allow anyone to talk freely in the public without the fear of being jeered.

*
p<>{color:#000;}. Make eating easier: when you have missing teeth, chewing some food will become very difficult. A dental implant will return your power to chew.

*
p<>{color:#000;}. Dental implant lasts long: if you maintain the dental implant by keeping a good oral hygiene, they have the tendency to last forever.

*
p<>{color:#000;}. Improvement of oral hygiene: the dental implants have the tendency to keep the healthy teeth in place so that you will not lose more of them.

The procedure used for dental implant is similar

Irrespective of the number of teeth to be replaced, the procedure for a dental implant is usually similar. It involves the dentist drilling holes into the jaw in the place of the missing teeth. The titanium screw is fitted into it which will hold the dental implant. The position of the implant will need some time to heal and this time will vary depending on the individual’s oral health, age and jawbone structure.

Dental implants have different types

Dental implants are safe and, like mentioned earlier can last a lifetime. This is because they cannot decay. The types of dental implants include;

#

Single tooth replacement: like the name goes, only a single tooth is replaced in this procedure. A crown matching the existing teeth is attached to the implant.

#
p<>{color:#000;}. Fixed multiple tooth replacement: multiple implants are inserted in this procedure.

#
p<>{color:#000;}. Removable implant-supported tooth replacement: all the teeth from lower or upper jaw are replaced.

The use of dental implants has a long history.

How Dental Care in Mexico can Help you Save Money

Read more Medical Tourism articles: http://j.mp/29NvwO1

For a long time, Mexico has been the home of medical tourists seeking dental implants. This practice has gone on for so long that Los Algodones (one of the major towns after Tijuana where the dental implant is carried out) is now nicknamed the Molar City. Many people still argue that medical tourism cannot equal vacation but the high number of medical tourists to Mexico says otherwise.

There are different types of dental works

In the town of Los Algodones, there are over three hundred and fifty dentists and their dental works include dentures, dental implants, and root canals. One tooth or all the teeth of the upper or lower jaw can be replaced as the case may be. Tourists are not attracted to Los Algodones for vacation; something else is making them come.

Los Algodones offers budget friendly packages

One of the major considerations of medical tourists when planning for their journey is the place they can get a good procedure done at a reduced cost. In Los Algodones, dental clinics lie side by side. This must have triggered the competition that brought down the price of dental procedures to a budget-friendly level. Many medical tourists take advantage of the low price to get their dental works done.

You can save fifty to eighty percent by carrying out your procedure in Mexico

The price margin between dental implant in the United States and what is obtainable in Mexico is so large that it is worth the risk and the stress. One can travel to Los Algodones to have fifteen crowns and six root canals done only at the cost of $7,880 while the same procedure back in the United States home may cost nothing less than $50,000.

Clinics in Mexico offer high-quality dental care

There are many clinics in Los Algodones located side by side making it easier to get all your procedures one within a short time. One of such clinics offering high-quality dental care is Sani Dental Group. They have an existence that dates back to 1985 with over thirty-three thousand smiles restored. It is also the only clinic in Mexico to receive the Medical Tourism Association certificate and is a member of American Dental Association.

Patients have had good things to say about Sani

The first good impression patients get on their visit which also helps to drive away apprehension is the fact that everyone speaks English – you will not have to fear that some people are planning to assassinate you when you listen to a language you do not understand. A visitor has no need to be afraid of noncooperation as well because they are accustomed to deal with people from different cultures. You will also get the opportunity to try out food that suits you most.

Medical tourism to Los Algodones will help you experience the city

The mentioned cases above that shared their stories are one of the reasons why you should get motivated and give medical tourism to Los Algodones a try. It appears to be the best way to combine healing and tourism because you will be treated to the beautiful scenes of the city and also experience their culture and people.

Planning of medical tourism can be made stress free

To make your medical tourism plans seamless, you are advised to involve a medical tourism agent. They will make contact with hospitals as well as help you secure a visa and arrange your ground movements while in Los Algodones.

Read more Medical Tourism articles: http://j.mp/29NvwO1

Mexico is a growing destination for medical tourists for a number of reasons that are not related to the cost of treatment. Mexico is the center of attraction for breathtaking landscapes, rich cultural heritage and tradition. It has the forest with the most biodiversity in the world. Tourists make their way to Mexico annually to get world class dental care and in addition, to enjoy some of these benefits. Here are some tips for the tourists who are planning to go for a dental checkup in Mexico.

Take time to find a medical facility that suits you

If you are looking for a medical facility to carry out your dental surgery, consider one that fits into your budget; likewise those that have a decent facility to guarantee you utmost care. Mexico can be a good choice for you in this regard.

Mexico is an emerging dental tourist destination

Medical tourists are always skeptic about the safety of their destination. Mexico provides a high quality and affordable healthcare. However, medical travelers need to understand the requirements in crossing the border and must consider the procedure that they are getting themselves into very carefully. For a safe dental surgery in Mexico, you should be prepared for the following issues:

1. Know the rules and regulations about border

Medical tourists need to understand that when traveling across border cities, there will be no need for immigration visas. You should always have your travel documents handy, particularly your passport. Although there will be no customs check across the border, there is a limit to what you can carry. Bullets, recreational drugs, explosives, and narcotics are forbidden. Also, law might forbid you from taking wildlife and treasures out of Mexico.

2. Consult with the travel health providers before you travel

The first consultation you should make is that of making contact with travel health providers in Mexico for advice. This should be done four to six weeks before you travel. You also need to make sure that you have taken the necessary vaccination before traveling.

3. Make sure that your dentist maintains hygiene

There are questions that may seem trivial but necessary to ask your dentist and they include how many times do they change gloves? How often they sterilize or disinfect their hands and drill pieces? If they sterilize their surgical water and so on. Getting nosocomial infection from dental surgery is very easy if proper hygiene is not enforced.

4. Be observant during treatment

It is wrong to hand over your health to other people. This is why you should keep your eyes open while in the dentist’s office. Look at the sanitation of the clinic – is it spotlessly neat? How often does the staff wash their hands between patients? Do they disinfect all the surfaces that have been touched during treatment?

You need to confirm that you did not get infected

Medical tourists with partially exposed lower wisdom tooth should think of removing it to prevent having it infected (a procedure known as pericoronitis). This infection can advance to affect the head and neck. Have your dental properly checked before leaving the hospital especially if you are coming from a far destination.

Pressure changes in the plane can cause pain

Root canal treatments should be completed before you make plans to leave your clinic. This is because pressure changes in the aircraft as it flies can predispose you to infection. It can also lead to excruciating pain. When the treatment cannot be completed, it should be filled partially by your dentist using paste filling. This helps to reduce the chance of infection.

There are some activities you should avoid after dental surgery

Flying immediately after surgery may lead to blood clots and pulmonary emboli. Also try and avoid vacations and recreational activities such as sunbathing, smoking, swimming, drinking alcohol and engaging in strenuous activities.

Factors You have to Consider While Seeking Quality Dental Care Abroad

Read more Medical Tourism articles: http://j.mp/29NvwO1

Rising cost of healthcare coupled with a shaky economy has become the main hindrance stopping Americans from seeking dental care – when it is most needed – in the United States. Touring to foreign lands to seek quality and cost effective dental care has become a pleasant alternative. The reasons behind the cheaper healthcare in foreign countries are listed below.

Asian and North American countries do not have complicated health laws

There has been an increase in international patients traveling to countries such as Poland, Thailand, Mexico and various Asian and South American countries in a bid to save thousands of dollars. The reason behind the cheaper cost of dental care in the aforementioned countries is not that they do not have professional and experienced doctors but because these countries do not have complicated malpractice insurance laws that the surgeons must abide to like in the United States.

Time and effort have to be invested in choosing dental care abroad

Traveling to a foreign land to seek dental care is not something that should be done in a hurry. Time and sufficient effort have to be invested in it to ensure you get the best out of the trip. The quality of sanitation and sterilization regimen of the clinic is the most important factors the patient has to critically examine. Also, patients should seek to know if the facility is duly accredited with the requisite certificate.

Consumer information guide should be made readily available

It is the right of Americans traveling to foreign countries to seek healthcare to get the best and that is why, they should go through the consumer information guide. Patients, on the other hand, can go through the reviews written by people who have been to the facility they intend to go and see what their experiences were before coming to a conclusion.

Patients should observe the crop of staff available in any facility

Medical facilities with staff from around the globe should be one of the considerations a patient should make before choosing a facility. This is because the blend of knowledge creates an atmosphere for diffusion of skills and transparency in the medical process. Healthcare in Asia is particularly competitive and you are bound to have more skilled surgeons there.

US-based insurance on foreign facilities gives peace of mind

There is a kind of calmness when a patient goes to clinics whose facilities and surgeons have undergone an audit in quality assurance by the United States based insurance. It is easy to find dentists and officers in South America and Mexico who have malpractice insurance. Many of such dentists and officers have usually been trained abroad.

Different dental procedures can be achieved in Mexico and Poland

Gone are the days when America was the only country offering dental care. Mexico and Poland have grown in facility and manpower to offer dental care spanning the areas of teeth whitening, dental surgery, dental implants, cosmetic dentistry and so on. Foreigners traveling to these countries are assured of the best dental practices at a reduced cost.

Access the different dental resources

There is the possibility of dentists in foreign countries to claim that they are members of American Dental Association and all other renowned dental associations across the globe when actually they are not. To bypass this trick, take your time as a patient to access different resources provided by the American Dental Association on International and Foreign Directories or World Dental Federation. These resources will display dentists around the globe who are members of American Dental Association.

Read more Medical Tourism articles: http://j.mp/29NvwO1

Mexico in recent years has been booming with medical tourists seeking dental care which is one of their specialties. Their wide range of dental works covers cosmetic surgery and dental implants. Their expert staff that has been highly trained locally and internationally and their hi-tech medical facilities have to be given some credit when talking about their success in dentistry.

Medical tourists will not be given a list of things to carry

Medical tourists are usually preoccupied about which facility to visit that they often ignore the vital part of their journey which has to do with the necessary things to carry with them for the journey. While planning your trip to Lo Algodones or Cancun, there are things you should know which have been outlined in the list below.

1. Know the procedure you intend to carry out

Ultimately, the problem is yours and you alone will properly understand your problem. It is necessary to carry out a simple research on your problem likewise how it can be handled. Talking to doctors and friends who have been through similar procedure will prepare you mentally for what lies ahead.

2. Research the clinic and their medical staff

After you must have concluded on what you want, the next step is to pick a clinic from the lot where you think your problem will be best resolved. Furthermore, have a look at the dentists in the facility you intend to visit. Go through their qualifications and records to determine their successes and failures. The truth is that there are various clinics offering the same procedures but not all of them are good.

3. Accommodation concerns

If you are not traveling alone, you will need to get accommodation for your companion because the least you would likely to stay in the hospital is 2 days. Aside from the dental care, if you wish to spend some time and explore the beauty of Mexico, you will also need accommodation. Booking a hotel room early is better than just walking into any hotel in the street.

4. Insurance cover

Insurance can be very beneficial in saving you some cost. Mexican insurance on dental care is very low and cross country insurance on health care differs but it is good to check if your insurance covers it. What is the point of emptying your pocket if your insurance can take care of it?

5. Have some local currency in your pocket

Peso is the local currency in Mexico and you should have some of it in your pocket. There are places where foreign currencies like the USD are accepted but you should not expect a mini vendor to accept it from you. Say, you want to buy sweets. You can find places to exchange your foreign currencies but they will always rip you off.

6. Keep your old medical records handy

To make handling of your case easier and faster, there is a need to carry your old X-ray, old medical records and doctor’s note along the journey. These documents will give the new doctor an idea of what has been done in the past so that they will know where to start.

7. Prepare for the weather and culture

Temperatures vary in Mexico and it may be wrong to assume that it will always be hot. Some cities, particularly those in the inland require formal attire. Learn about the culture of the area you intend to visit and abide by it. A little Spanish gesture will help you bridge the cultural and communication gap.
