Questions You Should Ask Your Hair Transplant Surgeon Here are some things to know before committing to a hair transplant.
Don’t Be Afraid to Get Answers
Getting a hair transplant is a big decision. Not only does it cost a significant amount of money, but it’s also something that will have a big impact on your overall appearance. Therefore, it’s extremely important that you’re well-advised before you decide to get a hair transplant.
Any reputable hair transplant clinic will allow you to have a free, no-obligation consultation where you can have your questions answered.
What results can I expect?
This is an incredibly important question to ask, since often people will have unrealistic expectations for what can be achieved. For example, those with very severe balding, where there’s less donor hair, cannot expect to get back a full, thick head of hair. Your surgeon will be able to assess your level of balding and let you know exactly what can be achieved.
How long will the results last?
This will depend on what stage your male pattern balding is at and how aggressive it is. It will also depend on what treatments you take and how well you respond to them. This is certainly something you should discuss with your surgeon.
Which type of procedure is best for me?
The two main types of hair transplant procedures are FUT and FUE. Each comes with advantages and disadvantages. For example, FUE doesn’t leave any scar at the donor site, whereas FUT is usually less expensive. Your surgeon will be able to discuss all the pros and cons of each procedure with you.
Am I a good candidate?
Good candidates for a hair transplant are those whose hair loss has stabilized and who have enough donor hair to allow for a good amount of coverage. To stabilize your hair loss, we usually recommended you take one of the available medications on the market.
Should I use medication after the procedure?
If your hair loss is very mild, it might not be necessary for you to take hair loss medications, such as finasteride and minoxidil. However, if your MPB is more aggressive and you want to maintain the results of your hair transplant, we usually suggest you start some form of treatment.
