17 June, 2014 | Hair Transplant | Author : Shveta Virmani
Choosing to undergo a hair transplant is the first step. However, the next and more important decision to make revolves around finding the right clinic for your surgery.

Choosing between small and large establishments come with its own set of pros and cons. Considering how niche the hair transplant sector is, you also need to look at quality of service and the level of customer oriented approach before choosing a clinic.

Among the many criterions to consider some of the important ones include,

  • The qualifications and experience of the surgeon
  • The cost and type of procedure
  • Size of practice

Here is a detailed insight into how to select the right clinic for your treatment.

Selecting the Right Doctor

The ideal way to find the right doctor for your transplant is through a referral. Your dermatologist or general practitioner will be able to give you the most reliable recommendations. The worst possible way to find yourself a surgeon is through commercials or other aggressive marketing communications. It is important that you are cautious about the establishments that seem to spend more on advertising than on patient care. After having short listed a few doctors, spend time online to look at reviews and finalize your decision.

Training and Qualifications

When selecting a surgeon, one of the first things to ask for is his or her specialty. Check whether the doctor you are considering is board certified as a plastic surgeon or a dermatologist. If they come with other qualifications such as that of an internist or urologist, feel free to ask them about their experience in hair. The benefit of going to a dermatologist is that the residency training for this program involves medical as well as surgical management of diseases related to skin, nails and hair. This means that they are the best choice for accurate diagnosis and treatment of your hair loss problem.

The Surgical Technique

One of the biggest decisions you need to make with regards to your hair transplant is whether to let the doctor harvest the donor hair through a thin long strip using the Follicular Unit Transplantation or, as individual follicular units with the help of the Follicular Unit Extraction method.

Each method comes with its own set of advantages and disadvantages. With the right clinic to associate with, you will be able to gain clear understanding of the options you have and choose the method that is best for you.

Things to Consider at the Consultation

Your first consultation is a good way to assess the reliability of a clinic. Here are a few assessments you can make.

  • Make sure that at your consultation you are actually being evaluated by the physician who will be eventually performing your surgery.
  • While it is understandable for a senior consultant or a non-physician to answer your general questions, you examination needs to eventually be in the hands of the surgeon.
  • Ask your doctor about the percentage of patients he or she prescribed surgery. If most of the patients are recommended surgery, this is not a good sign since not everyone is an ideal surgery candidate.
  • Make sure that the consultation is extensive enough. This means the examination must consist of a hair density check with a densitometer and a check for laxity in your scalp.
  • Make sure that your doctor is open to listen to you. He or she should be able to address all your concerns and make sure you are satisfied with all the answers.

Finally, the clinic you visit should be focused on a long-term plan. Make sure the clinic fits your financial budget with regards to the estimated cost of treatment and you are set to go ahead with regaining your full head of hair!
