Deciding to get a hair transplant is the first step. The second step is choosing the right
hair surgeon and clinic for your surgery. Both large and small practices have distinct advantages and
disadvantages. As the hair transplant industry is a niche market, it is also service-driven and
When shopping for a hair transplant or hair restoration surgeon, there are many issues to consider, including: surgeon qualifications and experience, cost and type of surgical procedure used and whether a large or small-sized practice better suits your needs.
First, let’s start with what’s important when choosing a hair surgeon. It's important to choose a physician with a minimum of 5 years hair transplant experience and one who specializes in this particular type of surgery. Ideally, the surgeon you choose will be well versed in follicular unit transplantation (FUT), the modern gold standard of hair transplant techniques. Interview your doctor to understand where he will apply this technique.
They advise discussing your complete medical history, including past and current medications, surgical benefits, risks, and alternatives; total cost including surgeon fees, anesthesia, facility, etc. with your prospective surgeon. Discuss his policy on additional or revisionary procedures, post-operative care and the typical timeline for resuming work and social activities.
There are also plenty of characteristics to consider when choosing a hair clinic. Try to find a practice that price in cost per hair, not in cost per graft or follicular unit. However, according to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (ASAPS), "Never choose a doctor solely on the basis of lower cost." Create a checklist to compare the pros and cons of each clinic you research and trust your instincts to decide which type of environment most closely matches your needs.
While larger practices may be able to attract high quality staff, it may often be the case that the physicians in these practices are more revenue and quota driven and more likely to view the patient as a number on a spreadsheet and not take a personal interest in him or her.
A smaller practice may allow for better quality control and may afford the client more one-on-one time with the physician. Additionally, smaller offices may have an increased interest to drive the results of the surgery, thus reaping referrals from satisfied clients. Typically, in a smaller office, the physician will offer more personalized service and product since they know you will be a future ambassador for their work.
In the end, only you can determine whether you will be happier with a large clinic or a smaller one and with the surgeon's expertise and philosophy. Whether you choose a national franchise, or a small local clinic, the surgeon, his preferred technique, and the team performing the surgery will all determine the quality of the results.
Also, eliminate any clinics that seem to be all glitz and glamour and no substance.
In sum, if you do your homework, make an informed decision and choose a clinic and physician that are right for you, you will be happy with the results of your hair transplant.
