Hair Transplant Consumer Alert
Over the years we have found that patients were misinformed and even mistreated at other clinics. That is why Dr. Amir Yazdan formulated and distributed an official Consumer Alert document last year that clearly explains to consumers their rights, and to give them an idea of what to expect from a hair provider. We are digitally publishing the consumer alert for educational purposes.
WARNING to Potential Hair Restoration Surgery Recipients
As hair restoration procedures grow in popularity and accessibility, there has sprung up a dangerous class of doctors and clinics who have no business even approaching a patient’s scalp. These clinics simply hire poorly trained or unlicensed technicians to perform substantial aspects of hair restoration surgery – this is both unethical and dangerous. Many clinics offer hair restoration surgeries as a menu item alongside breast augmentation, rhinoplasty, and other peripheral cosmetic operations.
These clinics are neither specialized nor experienced in hair restoration and their operations can often result in harmful and botched procedures. We urge potential patients to only seek out board-certified physicians who specialize in hair restoration.
To further ensure that your rights are protected, be prepared for your consultations. Prior to each meeting, compile a list of questions that you would like addressed. Reviewing the information on this website will help you formulate some of your queries. Always ask the provider if the replacement method you are interested in will work with your particular type of hair loss; if you’re unsure of your type, first see a doctor who specializes in hair loss for a proper diagnosis.
Beware of False Advertising!
Some clinics will prop up an eloquent sales campaign and web presence to sell consumers a trap. Over the years we’ve sadly received many patients seeking to repair and correct the damage done by bad hair transplant procedures.
Top Hair Transplant Practitioners Will:
- Have expert consistency and perform close to one surgery per day.
- Oversee and participate in the entirety of the hair restoration procedure.
- Be board-certified.
- Be willing to share case studies and provide reliable testimonials.
- Be affiliated with distinguished hair restoration societies like the International Alliance of Hair Restoration Surgeons (IAHRS).
- Provide a thorough exposition of the surgical or medical plan. What will the surgery entail? How many future sessions or appointments may be needed?
- Be extremely patient friendly. They should not try to sell or seduce you into a quick and hasty decision.
- Specialize exclusively in hair transplantation and hair restoration.
