Dr. McGrath will be offering an individual experiencing hair loss a life changing opportunity to receive a free hair transplant. Hair loss affects men and women of all ages. While genetics is the most common cause of baldness, other medical conditions can cause hair loss, as well. Any type of hair loss can negatively affect self-esteem, but unfortunately, cost can be the factor that prevents a person from being able to permanently resolve their hair loss. For this reason, Dr. McGrath wants to help someone who could really benefit from a hair transplant improve their confidence.
From now until November 24, 2011, individuals dealing with hair loss are invited to share a post on how a hair transplant would impact their life on McGrath Medical’s Facebook page – Facebook.com/McGrathHair. All submissions will be reviewed by Dr. McGrath on November 24th and five finalists will be selected. The finalists will be announced via McGrath Medical’s Facebook page and the public will have the opportunity to vote for the finalist they’d like to see receive the free hair transplant (a $12,500 value).
The winner of the hair transplant must be able to come to Dr. McGrath’s office in Austin, TX for a complimentary hair loss consultation to confirm that they are medically suitable for a hair restoration procedure. The winner will also have the opportunity to showcase their progress on Dr. McGrath’s website and allow the public to follow their hair transplant journey.
“Hair restoration is considered cosmetic and is not covered by insurance,” said Dr. McGrath. “However, hair loss can have a profound impact on a person’s self esteem and confidence, especially when hair loss occurs at a young age or as a result of a medical condition. There are solutions available to minimize hair loss, but it’s not always affordable to everyone. The opportunity to give someone this gift is important to me because I see every day the difference hair restoration makes in a person’s life.”
The winner will be required to post monthly blog posts of their experience and include progress photos as their hair transplant grows in.
