5 Tips to Choosing the Right Hair Transplant Doctor

Hair transplant clinics are popping up everywhere around the world these days. The question remains: how do you find the right hair transplant clinic? We will go over 5 things you can do to find the right hair transplant doctor.

Number 1 - Multiple Consultations

To find the right hair transplant doctor, you need to talk to as many hair transplant doctors as possible. The biggest mistake by far we have seen is when people saw just a couple of before and after photos from a clinic and decided to book an appointment for the procedure right away.

If you are losing your hair and are considering hair transplant, we strongly recommend that you schedule as many consultations with as many doctors as possible before making a decision. You will be surprised; the opinions, recommendations and even the cost can vary greatly from one clinic to the next. You owe it to yourself to hear from all the voices and opinions out there so that you can make an informed decision.

Number 2 - Don't rush

You should give yourself at least 6 months of research before making a decision about hair transplant. You must familiarize yourself with the ever confusing terminologies and acronyms in the world of hair transplantation so that you know what you are getting yourself into. Clinics have a tendency to brand their techniques with some fancy high-tech labels so that they look unique in the eyes of the patients. Very often, what you are getting from clinic A could very well be the same as from clinic B, they just call the technique differently in order to distinguish themselves from their competitors.

Also, plan ahead how much time you need to take off from work, what are the pre-op and post-op care instructions, are you planning to tell your friends and families about the procedure etc. While the procedure itself may only take a few hours, there are a lot of planning that goes into this decision both before and after the procedure.

Number 3 - No Such Thing as the BEST

There is no one doctor that is the best in everything. Nowadays we have multiple disciplines under the broad umbrella of Hair transplants. There is strip hair transplant, F.U.E hair transplant, body hair transplant, beard hair transplant, eyebrow transplant, eyelash transplant, facial hair transplant, hair transplant repair and many more.  A doctor who is great at designing hairlines may not be equally competent in repair work. Similarly, a F.U.E hair transplant doctor doesn't automatically mean that he knows how to do body hair transplants by default. It is important to know what you need to get done and find a doctor who is a specialist in that category. If an artistic hairline is the most important to you, then don't go to someone who is well known for repair work only.

Number 4 - Numbers and quantity do matter

When checking the credentials of a doctor or clinic, look for one that is capable of producing consistent results over an extended period of time.  A clinic that is able to published 100 successful results year after year is clearly preferable to one that only manages to publish a few stellar results per year. Follow HairSite's patient result statistics. We are the only site in the world that tracks patient result records for clinics around the world. Clinics' rankings can be found at Hair Transplant Doctor Rankings

Number 5 - Be Prepared to Travel

Hair transplant is a lifelong investment, it is definitely worth the travel. If the best doctor for what you need is located in another country, be prepared to do the travel. Last thing you want is to pick some random clinics near where you live for convenience sake and you end up paying for repair work for years to come.
