What factors should you consider when choosing a hair transplant doctor/clinic?

Hair transplantation helps patients to achieve very successful and natural results if applied correctly. There are various factors to gain sufficient results. One of the most critical issues here is the right doctor or clinic selection. You can find a few tips below about the right hair transplant doctor:

  1. Doctor Selection for Hair Transplant Procedure

Although many patients gain successful results, the results of the transplantation procedure, the experience, and the surgical skills play a big role in this success. When choosing a doctor for hair transplantation you should pay attention to the following:


It is highly essential to know about the surgeon's background. The knowledge of the doctor's qualification and his / her training. Dermatology and plastic surgery are not always sufficient. Hair transplantation has a special training program. Check with your doctor for previous training to see if he/she has received proper training in hair transplantation.


Doctors may obtain certification by satisfying a set of training requirements and passing some examinations. It is also important to find out if there is a doctor who has been approved by the necessary institutions.


Although a minimally obtrusive procedure, hair transplantation is not as straightforward as it appears. It is a quite complex process that requires experience. Experience is not always measured by the number of operations performed or years. Hair transplantation techniques are evolving and doctors who constantly keep themselves up-to-date. Experience, education, and innovation work together and are key elements of a technologically advanced hair transplantation practice.

  1. Preferred Hair Transplant Method

Typically, there are two main techniques of hair transplant: FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation) and FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction). The Follicular Unit Extraction is one of the favored techniques in the Hair Transplant field because it offers a far less invasive surgery type. 

Patients should select a doctor who is familiar with different hair transplantation techniques. This allows you to choose the best hair transplant procedure.

You should ask some questions to make sure that the doctor uses the hair transplant procedure. Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) method, if your doctor uses the following questions:

• Are grafts removed using microscopic or automated methods?

• Who does perform removing grafts?

• What is the role of technicians in the process?

• Do you use different methods to remove grafts?

If the doctor wants to use the FUT technique in hair transplant, ask him the following questions:

• Are the grafts cut microscopically?

• Are all technicians using a stereo-microscope?

• How long have technicians been using microscopes to examine follicular units?

  1. Patient Reviews

For hair transplantation, it's important to check online reviews for the area that you are considering and check into before and after photos. Learning more about some previous patient experiences online can help you to get an idea of ​​how they are treated through customer service and how trouble-free the process is for them over time.

During your first appointment with your doctor for hair transplantation, there are a few questions you need to ask your doctor:

• Am I a good candidate for a hair transplant?

• How will the hair repair plan help me and what should I do to protect the entire hair?

• What method do you recommend for removing grafts from donor areas and why?

• How many appointments do I need to make after hair transplantation?

• Are there any other instructions I should follow after hair transplant surgery?

  1. How to choose a clinic for hair transplant?

The clinic where hair transplantation will be performed is an as important factor as the choice of doctor. Particular attention should be paid to many factors such as hygiene and the advanced technology of the instruments used. If you want the hair transplantation to be done correctly, you should only use the clinics you have chosen for this job. The desired results may not be seen in clinics performing different procedures besides hair transplantation. Therefore, this is the most important factor in clinical selection.

It is also important when the clinic has been opened, customer reviews, whether it is a proper website, whether the tools used are old or new, and whether the tools used are fully used by employees. Doing detailed research on this subject is important in clinical selection. You can see whether the clinic can be preferred by looking at customer reviews. At the same time, the clinic should be visited before hair transplantation and it should be checked whether it has sufficient hygiene.

  1. Cost of surgical procedure:

Hair Transplant is a big step towards restoring your lost confidence due to hair loss. Many people consider cost as the main factor while choosing a hair transplant doctor/clinic. 

The cost generally depends on the method of hair transplantation you choose. With the robotic hair transplantation and all other types of hair transplantation available these days, the cost is dependent on the various factors.
