It is a well-known fact that hair transplant is the most effective remedy for hair loss and baldness. However, the effectiveness of a hair transplant is dependent on the skills of the surgeon and facilities of the transplant center. Highly qualified and experienced surgeon is the key to a successful hair restoration procedure.
Here are few things that you need to consider while choosing a hair transplant surgeon.
Background and Experience
While choosing a surgeon, the first thing that you need to know is the qualification and expertise of that surgeon. Try to find out whether he or she is a board-certified surgeon or not. Ask about the specialization and experience of the surgeon. It is recommended to ask for before/after images of some recent procedures so that you can analyze the effectiveness of the treatment that you are planning to undergo. Consider the doctors who are the members of the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgeons (ISHRS).
Reviews of Recent patients
Take some time and talk to some recent patients who have also undergone a hair restoration procedure from the same clinic. Ask them about their experience with the surgeon and other staff that you are considering. If possible, try to reach out the patients who have characteristics of skin and scalp similar to you so that you can predict the outcomes of your upcoming surgery.
The technique of the surgery
The biggest decision to make when you have decided to undergo a hair transplant is selecting the right technique for your specific hair loss. Ask about the skills of the surgeon in performing Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) and Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE). If your surgeon is capable of performing only one technique, try to consider another surgeon so that you have options of choosing the right one for you.
There are pros and cons of both hair transplantation techniques, so it is important for a doctor to have a good understanding of both the techniques so that he or she can decide the best for you.
Look for the testimonial of the hair transplant surgeon that you are considering. Most surgeons have their testimonials on the website of the transplant center or clinic. Also, read the reviews of the patients who have undergone a hair restoration procedure with them.
Face to face Consultation
All reputable hair transplant clinics provide face to face consultation before the procedure. Make sure that you are actually getting examined by the same surgeon who is going to perform your hair transplant procedure. Ask your doctor about the effectiveness of hair transplantation surgery for your condition and possible outcomes.
Make sure to talk about your current health condition and what you need to do to become an ideal candidate to undergo a hair transplant procedure.
