This question, from a member of our Hair Restoration Social Community and Discussion Forums, was answered by Coalition hair transplant surgeon Dr. Glenn Charles:
Outside of the various hair restoration physician’s websites for pics of success stories, how does one actually get to meet other hair transplant patients for reference purposes?
In addition to connecting with patients via the Hair Restoration Network, you can also ask a hair restoration physician to arrange for you to meet with a patient who had hair transplantation. I often do this for patients who would feel more comfortable if they could see a few patients in person. I try to set it up for them to come to the clinic to view a live surgery and see the patient immediately post-op. I also like for them to meet a patient who is already showing results from the procedure.
You can look at photos all day, but there is no substitute for observing hair transplant results first hand. Seeing is believing!
