In my opinion (some will disagree), there is a short list of special hair transplant surgeons that routinely get outstanding results. I am not here to name them and argue about who is or is not on that list but I wanted to know why is that list (again, in my opinion) so short? It is definitely a skilled job for the physician and the techs but, when I look at it, I would think that every major city could host a clinic that runs at the top level. However, there is only a handful throughout the world.
- Honest consultations and hair loss treatment plans–not fishing for every available dollar from every available consultation.
- Avoiding the big 3 mistakes: hairline too low, big and wide scar, too little hair over too much bald head
- Practice makes perfect or at least practice makes better. It’s hard to get good dabbling in hair or facelifts or flying airplanes, etc.
- Techs who care about the quality of their work, who work for the doctor and who understand that their work, on a daily basis, affects a result for a lifetime.
There are probably more, but this came to mind immediately. No hair restoration clinic is perfect. All have less than perfect outcomes but the good clinics can minimize disappointing results by adhering to high standards and consistency.
