CHOOSING A HAIR TRANSPLANT DOCTOR
With an endless number of websites about hair transplantation, it can be difficult to know what to look for and what information to trust. Whether you decide to undergo your procedure at IHSG or another hair clinic, our Hair Restoration Guide will provide some helpful tips to follow and questions to ask when trying to find a hair transplant surgeon that’s right for you.
It’s important to know how much work experience the doctor has. Is the practice dedicated solely to hair restoration surgery, if not, how much of hair restoration surgery represents his/her business? For a doctor to be proficient at hair transplants, he/she should be performing the procedure, at the very least, on a weekly basis.
Take note of what professional certifications and memberships the doctor has. Though a professional membership in organizations like ISHRS and the ESHR does not guarantee the qualifications of the doctor, it does illustrate an effort to stay current on the latest techniques and improvements in hair restoration. Only certified members of the American Board of Hair Restoration Surgeons undergo written and oral examination, each of which is statistically validated with regard to their ability to discriminate between those physicians whose practice habits were consistent with safe, aesthetically sensitive hair restoration surgery.
