Preparing for a Hair Transplant? 5 Tips to Keep in Mind
Hair loss is a big concern for most adults as it reminds us that our youth – and hair is slowly withering away. And when natural home remedies, chemically-induced products and hair loss treatments fail to work their ‘magic’, a hair transplant may be last resort for most of us. Unlike using ointments for hair growth which is quite simple, a hair transplantation is a tedious process that should be done under the guidance of an expert hair restoration specialist alike Dr. Yazdan to avoid any serious risks or complications that can arise.
In many cases, patients have been ‘duped’ by small time or shady clinics due to negligence, ignorance and even false advertisements. If getting a hair transplant is on your mind, follow these expert tips by leading Southern California and Las Vegas hair restoration specialist, Dr. Yazdan.
#1 Choose an expert: This is first and foremost. Most people think that getting a hair transplant is a regular cosmetic treatment and can be done from any local clinic or hair expert. But this is certainly not the case as it is a medical procedure which is to be done only by a hair restoration surgeon or dermatologist. And hence, it is imperative to choose an expert.
#2 Not all experts are qualified: Hair loss can be very traumatic, but one should not compromise on the quality of the service when undergoing hair transplantation. Hair transplant treatment and other cosmetic procedures, like Botox and fillers, are now available even at small-time clinics and alike. Many “experts” who perform these procedures are either non-medical professionals or under-qualified doctors. It is important to understand that hair transplantation requires medical expertise and therefore, one should approach only a certified hair transplant physician with a reputable background. There are many ‘big-name’ hair transplant companies out there that wheel & deal several patients a day, not taking the necessary time a hair transplant requires. Dr. Yazdan prides himself on only one surgery per day, utilizing a long-standing and dedicated team throughout the entire procedure.
#3 Do not fall for advertisements: Ideally, when someone is looking for hair transplantation, they should never go by ads in newspapers or clinics offering lower prices. One should approach a qualified hair restoration surgeon who provides the treatment that meets your expectations and who has an infrastructure to support the kind of treatment you are looking for. As WebMD suggests – stay away from the big-name clinics that advertise on television, radio, etc.
#4 Look for a qualified doctor with a set team of professionals: Hair transplantation is not a solo act, no matter how experienced the physician claims to be. When a hair restoration specialist performs a hair transplant, there’s typically a group of a 4-6 technicians and assistants that make up a team. Yet, some physicians prefer to use “travel technicians.” When using travel technicians, both the surgeon and technicians can’t be nearly as efficient as a set team of professionals that has been with the surgeon for a long period of time. Moreover, all of them are present until the entire procedure is complete. Clinics offering cheap hair transplants compromise on patient’s safety, use poor support and hardly have experienced experts to perform the procedures.
#5 Do proper research: One should do a detailed research about the clinic and the doctor and choose a properly trained and licensed hair transplant specialist. Never compromise on the quality or safety as for a successful treatment, both these factors are equally important. Patients should check the proven track record of the surgeon who is going to perform the procedure rather than the price cut they offer.
While emphasizing on the dismal state of the medical profession, where there isn’t enough quality control on the sprouting cosmetic clinics doing such risky procedures – we can’t stress enough the importance in finding the right doctor that suits your needs without compromising your health and the quality of your hair transplant results.
