If you’ve read through part 1 of this guide and have decided that you’re a good candidate for an FUE hair transplant then you’ll now want to find the right surgeon to perform the procedure. The information below will help you to find the best surgeon by knowing what to look for and the right questions to ask.
What to look for in a surgeon
Experience – Experience is always extremely important when looking for a good surgeon. You want to find a surgeon who has carried out many FUE procedures. This is important since not all hair transplants are performed in the same way so someone who has lots of experience with FUE is ideal.
Qualifications – A reputable hair transplant surgeon will never be hesitant to show their qualifications. The more qualified the surgeon is the better.
Testimonials – If you’re able to seek out genuine testimonials from patients that your surgeon has worked on then this is invaluable. It will let you know that your surgeon is skilled and will give you a lot more confidence that you’ll be happy with the results.
Should I consider getting a transplant done overseas?
Your budget is always going to be a factor when you’re considering a hair transplant. It can be tempting to look at getting your transplant done overseas, however this is not recommended at all. The standards in foreign countries can be very low and if you’re not happy with the results of your transport there might not be any legal recourse.
Questions to ask
How much will the procedure cost? – It’s always important to be 100% clear on what your transplant will cost. Most clinics charge per graft so the amount you can expect to pay will depend on the number of grafts you need. If you’re not able to pay upfront then payment plans are usually available.
How long will it take? – It’s also important to find out how long the procedure will take. This again will largely depend on how many grafts you require.
What results can I expect? – The results you can expect from a hair transplant will depend on the severity of your balding and the quality of donor hair you have. Only a surgeon who has met with you personally will be able to advise on the types of results you can expect.
