6 Questions you Should ask a Hair transplant Surgeon


Hair loss can be caused by numerous reasons including genetics, hormonal imbalance, stress, deficiency of essential protein, poor diet, over styling, chemotherapy and much more. So, the hair loss caused by different factors behaves differently and can be treated with the appropriate remedy.

Finding a suitable cure for your specific hair loss condition is a task. It may require you to consult an expert surgeon in your vicinity. While there are many surgical and non-surgical options available to treat different types of hair loss, hair transplant is still the first choice of the most surgeons as it gives natural and long-lasting results.

Considering a hair loss treatment is not a hard and long process. You don’t need to make a speedy and emotional decision, and analyze all the available options slowly and carefully and put your queries in front of your surgeon. These include:

Why should I choose this surgeon?

The first and most import decision before undergoing a hair loss treatment is to choose the right surgeon. You need to visit the clinic by yourself and ask about the experience and qualification of the surgeon that is going to perform this job for you. You also need to ask about some recent surgeries that he or she has performed.

Is there anything that will enhance my hair transplant?

Normally some surgeons perform few supporting treatments that can create a great impact on the productivity of a hair transplant. Some topical products such as minoxidil, revivogen, Acell/PRP therapy and Mesotherapy for hair loss are essential in enhancing the outcomes of a hair transplant.

Which transplant is best for me?

There are two main techniques to perform a hair transplant surgery which are FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) and FUT (Follicular Unit Transplant).

FUE being the first choice of most surgeon is viable and most productive for more number of cases. However, in some cases, there might be a need for FUT also.

In FUE, a special plucking tool is used to extract the hair from the “donor areas” so that the hair at these areas remain unaffected and regrow in future. The obtained hair grafts are then inserted into the recipient areas (where the baldness occurs). In this procedure, follicular units are transplanted individually that it takes longer than conventional FUT but it does not damage the hair follicles neither leaves any scar.

In FUT, a strip of hair is removed from the donor area to be placed at the recipient area. The obtained strip is then divided into smaller follicular groups before inserting into the recipient’s areas. The extraction and division process is critical in FUT in a way that it can damage the hair grafts.

What is the cost of a hair transplant?

The actual cost of a hair transplant depends upon few factors such as the location of the clinic, surgeon’s fee, number of grafts required to fulfill your desired outcomes, number of sessions required and standards of performing a surgery.

How much is the recovery period?

This varies from a person to person. For some fortunate individuals, little or no off time is required after the surgery, however, few may need to take rest for several days after the surgery.

It also depends upon the type of treatment you have undergone. If you undergo a non-surgical hair loss treatment, you will take minimal time to recover from the uneasiness of the procedure. Whereas, surgical hair restoration procedure requires a bit longer recovery time.

Don’t get disheartened if you don’t get the required outcomes right after the procedure as in hair transplants it takes 9 to 10 months for final results to appear due to hair recycles.

Will I need another procedure in the future?

The newly transplanted hair have the similar behavior to the hair at your donor area. The hair at donor areas are normally resistant to baldness and never fall off. In the same way, the transplanted hairs have the same characteristics that they will stay on your head for the lifetime. However, as you age you may experience slight thinning of hair at the back and sides of the scalp. If this happens, then you will also experience thinning of hair at the transplanted hairs.

The bottom line is, the transplanted hairs act in a way similar to hairs at donor area.
