I have been researching hair transplant surgeons, but I’m wondering if celebrities have the inside scoop on who the best hair transplants surgeons are. Do you think I should choose the same surgeon as a celebrity?
Celebrities do not have the inside scoop on who is performing the best surgeries. In fact, most celebrities are just like normal people except with disposable income. Most celebrities choose clinics based on marketing and advertising rather than research and results. The general public tend to admire celebrities, because celebrities drive trends and fads.
Unfortunately, most celebrities are ill-informed when it comes to hair transplant surgeons/clinics. Another factor to consider is the use of hair systems “toupees” or “wigs” in Hollywood. The amount of actors and actresses that use toupees or wigs is astounding. Most actors require an immediate solution to their baldness, there is no faster solution than a wig or toupee. The density a wig or toupee can provide is not possible through hair restoration. This gives prospective patients unrealistic expectations.
Anyone interested in having a hair transplant should register on a popular hair loss forum like the hair restoration network. The hair loss forum is a perfect place to ask questions and interact with other hair loss sufferers. Members share their unbiased reviews, post their progress pictures and share their before and after photographs. This gives prospective patients a guide on the hair transplant process.
With that said, prospective patients should always research hair restoration surgeons themselves. Hair restoration is a surgical technique that requires skill, talent and experience. Only a select few perform refined hair restoration regularly with successful results. The hair transplant network thoroughly screens hair transplant surgeons, to ensure they meet the high standards of quality. Moreover, only the best and brightest surgeons are accepted for recommendation.
