What Should You Look For in A Hair Transplant Doctor?
If you’ve decided to investigate hair transplantation options in order to fight back against your receding hair line or widening part, you’ll need to begin by settling on a transplant clinic or a specific surgeon. But not all clinics are the same, and not all surgeons are equally qualified to perform follicular unit extraction and follicular unit transplantation. How can you narrow down your options? And what kinds of qualities can help you determine if a hair transplant doctor is right for you?
Finding a Great Hair Transplant Doctor: Tips
First, don’t rush. You may be strongly motivated to settle on a hair transplant doctor and get your procedure underway, but there’s nothing to be gained by hurrying through the process and potentially missing red flags.
Start by gathering recommendations from family and friends who have undergone hair transplant procedures. Don’t be afraid to ask personal questions about their experiences and take a close look at the results if your friends will allow.
When you’ve settled on a short list of hair transplant doctors, arrange consultations with each one, and ask how experienced they are with FUE. Not all surgeons are licensed to perform this procedure, but some do so anyway, so investigate before you make a commitment.
Ask for before and after photos of previous clients. Look closely at the photos for signs of misleading lighting and mismatched backgrounds. And if the backgrounds match and the lighting is the same in each, look for signs of scarring and puckering in the skin at the donor site.
Finally, ask for contact information for previous patients. Your doctor should have a few names of clients who have agreed to share their phone numbers or email addresses; contact these people and ask them about their results and the details of their experience with this particular hair transplant doctor.
