How to Choose a Hair Restoration Physician

Choosing a hair restoration physician can be confusing and the process should not be taken lightly.

Your choice of physician will determine whether you end up with a natural looking transplant or one that is very obvious.

I have compiled the following list of hints to help make that choice a little more straight forward.Firstly, retain healthy scepticism and conduct thorough research before committing to a transplant.

  • Ask yourself if you are comfortable with the physician? Do you feel as though they are assisting you to evaluate all of your options rather than simply pushing you down a particular path.
  • Choose a hair restoration clinic that is patient rather than commercially focused. The more commercial operations, which often rely on heavy advertising, place a heavy emphasis on revenue, speed and volume of business.
  • Try to speak to past patients of the clinic so that you can see the results obtained for yourself and find out if their experience was positive.
  • Ask to see a comprehensive set of patient before and after photographs.
  • Find out if the physician’s primary focus is on hair transplantation. Physicians who specialise in hair transplantation alone rather than a broad range of cosmetic practices are more likely to achieve outstanding results.
  • Be aware that not all hair transplants are the same.
  • Don’t be afraid to ask the physician about their transplant techniques. Remember, it is the way the surgeon places the transplanted follicle that will make a difference between an obvious and a completely natural looking transplant.
  • Hair loss patients should find out exactly how many hairs they are likely to end up with after having a transplant. Be aware of the difference between having a transplant where 1000 grafts equates to just 1,000 hairs and one where the same amount of grafts results in up to 4,000 hairs.
  • Conduct internet searches to find out about the physician’s international experience.
