After years of hiding under a hat, creative haircuts, and even trying the bald look, you’ve finally decided to take the plunge and have hair transplant surgery. You’ve researched all the options, procedures, recovery time, and expense and now it’s time to schedule a consultation with a hair transplant doctor. Yet selecting one has you feeling a bit overwhelmed. They all promise extraordinary results and claim to be the best and most qualified. So, how do you cut through the clutter and feel confident in your choice? Here are 5 important things to consider.
Can the doctor show you several before and after photos? Ask to see examples of the various hair restoration services the practice performs and make sure the photos are from actual patients and not pulled off the web. Also, ask how long ago the procedures were performed.
Can the practice provide you with patient references? A surgeon should be able to share with you the contact information for several past or existing patients that have undergone hair transplant surgery and are willing to share their experiences with you. Ask for those who have had transplants like the kind you have in mind to get a better idea of what to expect before, during, and after the surgery.
Is hair restoration the surgeon’s primary specialty? Take caution when considering practices that provide a variety of services, unless they have doctors who specialize in each service offered.
What are the surgeon’s credentials? Is he or she board certified? How long have they been practicing, and how many surgeries have they performed throughout their career? You want a surgeon who not only has the education and training, but extensive experience in various hair restoration procedures.
Ask about the support staff. A doctor needs a qualified and caring support staff to provide you with the best possible service. Is there someone on hand to answer your questions before and after the procedure? Who do you contact should you have post-surgical complications? Who will be seeing you for your follow-up appointments? These are all factors that can deliver a better hair restoration experience.
