Four Questions to Ask Before a Hair Transplant
The decision to undergo a hair transplant is a personal one that should not be entered into lightly. There are a number of questions you should take the time to ask yourself before having the procedure. Here are four questions all patients should ask when considering a hair transplant:
- Where should I look for more information?
The steps involved in having a hair transplant should be completely understood in advance. Doing proper research on the Internet is a good first step in making you a better educated patient. It still doesn’t take the place of consulting with a doctor who is trained and experienced in the art of hair restoration.
- Have you seen examples of actual patients?
Once you make a consultation appointment with a doctor, ask to see photos of his actual patients. The photos will give you a better look at his work and also enable you to give the doctor examples of the results you would like to achieve.
- Have you asked anyone for information about the doctor?
As mentioned above, the Internet is a great tool for research about hair restoration. It is also very helpful in learning more about the reputation of your hair transplant surgeon of choice. Search for actual patient reviews of the doctor and his staff. It will give you a better idea how the doctor is viewed by his patients as well as his reputation among others in the hair restoration community.
- Do you feel comfortable with the doctor?
A hair transplant is a life changing experience and it is one you need to feel comfortable about before having the procedure. Make sure you feel confident about your doctor of choice and that you feel comfortable asking questions before and after the procedure. If you don’t feel comfortable asking any questions that are on your mind, you might need to find another medical professional to handle your hair transplant.
