It’s great to search online for a hair transplant doctor (that’s why this site is here), but it’s important to take your time and make sure that you find the surgeon that’s right for you before you start thinking about picking a date for your procedure.

Look around and collect a list of potential surgeons. After you’ve done this, book some time to go in and speak to each doctor in person. Hair transplant surgery will change the way you look for the rest of your life, so it’s vital that you choose the best doctor possible.

What to Look For in a Doctor

When comparing hair transplant doctors, there are a few key things that you should look for. These include:

  • Expertise. You’re reading this site, so that shows that you care about getting educated about hair transplant surgery. Don’t be afraid to quiz potential surgeons about the information you’ve found online. Find out if the surgeon’s practice is dedicated to hair restoration or if he or she also performs other surgeries. Ask him or her about *follicular unit transplantation[Follicular Unit Transplantation]. How many FUT procedures has the surgeon performed? Does the surgeon use a microscope when dissecting the grafts? How long have his or her assistants been using microscopes to perform FUT surgeries?
  • References. Any good surgeon should be able to provide you with a list of at least five former patients, including their phone numbers so that you can call them and ask about their experiences. Be sure to take advantage of this opportunity. This is a great opportunity for you to ask questions to people who were once in the situation you are in right now. If you can, ask for a list of former patients who have skin and hair characteristics that are similar to your own.
  • Photographic proof. Ask all potential doctors to provide you with before and after photos of patients that they have treated. Watch for the tell-tale signs that these photos are fudged (bad lighting, smiling in the after picture but not the before picture, etc.). Be sure that the photos provide a clear, close-up view of the hairline and scars in the donor areas.
  • A clean record. Call up your state medical board and ask if anyone has filed a complaint against the surgeon.
  • Gut feeling. There’s no way around it – you have to trust your surgeon. If he or she rubs you the wrong way at all, that’s a good sign that you should move on and find someone you feel more comfortable with.

One Last Thing

When you book a consultation, be sure that you speak to the doctor directly. Several hair transplant doctors employ “medical consultants” to meet with potential patients. These consultants can give you basic information about hair transplant procedures, but they aren’t doctors and they aren’t qualified to give you specific recommendations regarding medical procedures.
