The hair loss world has been infiltrated by many flashy intermediary services which are throwing money at high marketing campaigns. This makes it more difficult for clinicians to directly reach their patients. Hair Transplanting is a surgical speciality that requires years of expertise to be performed well. There are only a small number of qualified surgeons with competent surgical staff performing hair restoration surgery in the UK or even worldwide.
So how do you avoid the middleman or sales pitch?
To fully prepare for your hair restoration surgery research is the answer:
- Look for listed hair transplant surgeons / doctors on the ISHRS website. Arrange to Visit the clinic that they own.
- Meet the surgeon on the day of consultation directly
- Only attend clinic premises where the surgery is carried out. The surgery should be carried out on the premises where you have your consultation.
Always remember if the consultant is not a medical professional then they cannot provide you with specific medical or surgical recommendations.
