Questions You Should Ask Your Hair Surgeon

Questions To Ask

Your Hair Transplant Surgeon

Before you choose a hair surgeon, it is important to ask questions. There is no such thing as a silly or unimportant question. Prior to making any sort of final commitment to a procedure, it is better to know than not to be fully informed.

The first part of the question-asking process happens in the consultation as you get to know what your options are. Ask as many questions as you feel comfortable asking. Always get the information you need to ensure that the surgeon’s clinic provides the attention to care that they promise.

Who will be Performing my Hair Transplant Surgery?

Be aware of their education, training, licensing, and experience in treating and performing hair transplant surgery. Know who will be involved in performing your surgery and what role they will play. Ideally, you want a highly regarded and credentialed surgeon to be monitoring any procedure that you are going for.

Is Everyone Involved in my Surgery Covered by Malpractice Insurance?

If there is an error, it is important to know that there is malpractice insurance in place to ensure that your rights are being protected at all times.

What Are My Options

For Surgery?

There are different hair transplant surgery options to choose from, depending on how far along a patient might be in their hair loss. It is important to inquire about these options, to define the differences between them, and to do your own independent research to cull your own fair comparison.

What do They Say About Scars?

Any hair transplant surgery is going to lead to scars to some degree. There is no such thing as a hair transplant surgery that does not leave scars. Though a surgeon may claim to leave no scars, this is false advertising. Any incision made by machine or hand that enters the skin beyond the most superficial depths causes a scar to form. There is no machine currently capable of automatically performing all aspects of hair transplant surgery without leaving scars, though there are some machines to assist in the hair transplantation process. FUE hair transplants result in the least scarring, which is often not even visible.

How Long Is the Procedure Set to Last?

For some people, the hair transplantation process might require multiple procedures. Patients should have a clear understanding on how much time it will take to achieve the desired result.

Will People Notice that I Have Had a Hair Transplant?

This is a question that many patients should feel comfortable asking. Addressing this concern up front, a surgeon might recommend some options for making the hair transplant less noticeable. Any hair transplant surgeon should be able to provide realistic expectations for the final look.

How Much Does the Procedure Cost?

Patients should be able to ask those tough financial questions prior to committing to a surgery. Though hair transplant surgery is rarely covered by insurance, a clear discussion on the finances of hair transplantation might provide options for payment, including a payment plan.

Will It Be Painful?

Many patients might be reluctant to ask whether there will be any pain involved, but it is a fair question. Always ask about what you should expect during and after the procedure. Today’s hair restoration surgeons have a number of pre- and post-operative methods that should put you at ease.
