It can be tempting to simply make your decision on where you’re going to have a hair transplant done based on cost alone. Of course cost is a very important factor but it’s not the only thing to think about. There are other considerations that should be taken into account so you can make the best decision possible when choosing a clinic. These include:
Experience & Reputation of the Surgeon –
Of course the experience of the surgeon who’ll be carrying out your procedure is extremely important. In truth most surgeons who have their own clinic are going to have a good amount of experience in carrying out hair transplants but if experience is very high up on your list of priorities then you should look for a surgeon with at least 10 year’s experience in carrying out the type of procedure you intend to get.
Just as important as a surgeon’s experience is their reputation. Thankfully, the internet has made it easier than ever to research hair transplant surgeons. Any good surgeon will have plenty of pictures to show the results of patients they’ve worked on. This is one of the best indicators that they’ll be able to achieve the results you want.
Procedures Offered –
Another important factor in your decision should be the type of procedure you want to have done. FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) is the most common form of hair transplant because if offers the most natural looking result without a linear scar. There are also FUT and robotic hair transplants available so it’s important to think about your options before making any decisions.
Having a hair transplant done is a fairly major procedure and in most cases takes a full day with a recovery period of around a week. Think about where you are and where you can easily recover.
