I have been doing a lot of research on hair transplantation and though I’m a good candidate, I am torn as to whether or not to undergo hair restoration surgery. I’ve been finding a lot of valuable information on your website and receiving a number of great answers on your discussion forum. But how do I know if hair transplantation is right for me? How do I know if I will really be satisfied?
I think it’s excellent that you are dilligently researching our websites and asking questions on our hair restoration discussion forum prior to going through with hair transplant surgery. Certainly if you choose to proceed, you will know what to expect.
Since you have already determined through research and hair restoration physician consultation that you are a good hair transplant candidate, only you can determine as to whether hair restoration surgery is right for you. There are certainly benefits, risks and limitations that need to be considered.
Hair restoration physician selection and patient knowledge are the two most vital pieces to ensure a successful hair transplant experience.
Hair Transplant Doctor Selection:
It is best to choose a hair transplant doctor that has a public record of consistent positive results, not only posted by the clinic itself, but by real hair restoration patients of the hair transplant clinic. Being able to read real hair transplant patient experiences and view high resolution before/after photos should be available online for research and viewing purposes. Feel free to use our hair restoration discussion forum as a resource tool.
Research and Knowledge:
Knowing what to expect BEFORE surgery is extremely important. Consulting with and asking questions to a first-rate hair restoration physician can help you develop realistic expectations before entering into hair transplantation surgery.
Keep in mind that no two hair transplant patients will turn out exactly alike. Hair characteristics, area to be covered, and number of follicular unit grafts play a huge role in the cosmetic appearance of a hair transplant. Though looking at others with similar hair characteristics and levels of hair loss can be used as a guide, one can never say that they will achieve the same cosmetic appearance as another hair transplant patient.
I have talked to a number of hair transplant patients over the years who were dissatisfied with their results. Upon looking at their pictures, many of them have truly received state of the art hair transplantation and had some great cosmetic improvement. The problem however, was that their expectations were too high.
Prior research on educational hair restoration websites, patient driven hair restoration discussion forums, and discussion with and selection of a quality hair transplant doctor will promote a satisfying hair restoration experience.
