LEARN MORE ABOUT HAIR TRANSPLANT PROCEDURES
Considering a hair transplant? If you’re like many of our clients, you’ve been dreaming of fuller hair and researching to find out everything you can about today’s leading methods for restoration. When you finally schedule your first consultation, it can be overwhelming. Many people are nervous about forgetting to ask essential questions, or they might need help figuring out what those things are.
We’re here to help with our top 9 essential questions to ask when you see a surgeon about hair transplant surgery for the first time.
Am I A Good Candidate?
Though men and women of all ages may be interested in this permanent, surgical hair restoration option, not everyone is an ideal candidate. Suitability will be based on a few factors including age, the type of hair loss you have and its progression, your overall health, and how much donor hair you have. Without sufficient living hair follicles to harvest and redistribute, the procedure can’t deliver satisfying results.
How Qualified & Experienced Is The Surgeon?
Though the advance of modern technology has given rise to automated devices that help expedite hair transplants, they must be used as part of a comprehensive, expert and personalized plan, or you may not get the results you’ve hoped for. Everything from donor hair selection and extraction to the precise implantation following natural lines, direction and density, will affect your outcome.
Despite the relative simplicity of the concept of hair redistribution, what separates an “obvious” transplant result from a flawless one is often the training and experience of the practitioner. You’ll want to select a Royal College certified cosmetic or plastic surgeon who will consult with you, design and plan your procedure. Skilled technicians are often utilized to help create a beautiful result under the direct supervision and involvement of the surgeon.
How Can You Prepare For Surgery?
As with any cosmetic/invasive procedure, you’ll need to avoid certain supplements and medications beforehand. Your surgeon will let you know what to stop taking and when. The days before your procedure you’ll likely be asked to avoid hair styling products and treatments such as dyes.
To prep your home and prepare yourself to be comfortable and relaxed, it’s a good idea to run errands and load up on snacks, reading materials and anything else you might need so you can stay out of the public eye for a few days. You may have temporary swelling on the forehead and will display reddish dots while you heal.
