Ask for photographs of the before and after.
Clinics can show patients better results by using hair enhancement products such as Toppik and digitally altering the results using a variety of software programs, despite the fact that the development of social media and the internet has made it easier for clinics to present their patients’ photographs more easily. A competent clinic will display photographs that are selectable and correspondingly high in quality.
Some patients do not want their faces exposed online or in videos, thus images may be kept private. If this is the case, we suggest speaking with them during your consultation and asking them to provide some for you.
Ask About the methods offered at the clinic and pain management.
All around the globe, the use of two popular hair transplant procedures are known as FUE and FUT. These are procedures that, depending on the patient’s tolerance, may result in aches and pains. There are methods to lessen the discomfort, but the treatment will not be fully painless; you may look into this if you so want to.
Remember, no doctor wants his or her patient to be in pain. After all, the scalp is being treated, which indicates that there will be some discomfort. Clinics that are not patient-centered advertise painless, ache-free treatments such as ICE FUE and Golden FUE, which are not available anywhere else in the world and have no place in medical literature, in order to deceive patients. Such statements are sufficient evidence that a clinic is not focused on the needs of its patients.
If you are concerned about pain during your treatment we advise you to consult with your surgeon about what you can expect during and after your treatment in order to prepare yourself appropriately.
Ongoing training and medical experience.
Inquire with your doctor about any training they have had, as well as any credentials they may have, and ask to view recent copies. Such diplomas are an indicator that your doctor is keeping up with the latest advances and striving to become a better doctor and stay ahead of new techniques available.
Specifics of the procedure.
How certain are you that your hair transplant procedure will be successful? Understanding this requires learning about the quality standards of the hair transplantation facility, operation phases, and the method in which quality control measures are implemented and maintained.
It will be determined by details such as how successfully hair is collected from the donor area, acceptable fracture rates, storage of grafts, and the selection of single, multiple hair root grafts for a natural result during transplantation whether or not the clinic dominates the procedure from a medical standpoint.
Medication or prescriptions provided to you.
Is it possible that the hair transplant facility has provided you medicine to take before and after your procedure? Have they assessed you as a patient for other therapy options to surgery rather than simply surgery alone? Will any other established therapy, in addition to the surgical process, improve the outcome of your surgery? This is a critical step in ensuring that you receive the outcomes that have been promised in the near future.
