There are many top hair transplant surgeons out there. Sadly, there are also a large number who might be called less than the best hair transplant surgeon. So, how do you find the best hair transplant surgeon? Is there anything that the top hair transplant surgeons have in common?
First, any hair transplant surgeon you are considering should be a member of the American Board of Hair Restoration Surgery. It is the only organization to require that surgeons have performed a specific number of hair transplant surgeries and requires them to take a written and oral test.
It’s important that top hair transplant surgeons have a variety of methods for performing hair transplants. There is the FUE method where donor hair follicles are extracted and transplanted one at a time. There is also the FUT method, where a strip of donor hair is removed from the back of the head and technicians divide them into individual follicles, both work well. But you should understand both methods before consulting with any surgeon.
Some surgeons also do “mega” sessions, where a large number (up to 6,000 follicles) are transplanted at a time. Others will transplant a smaller number of follicles in two or more sessions. You should ask any surgeon the method they plan to use and the advantages and disadvantages of each. Finally, during consultation, you should make a list and feel free to ask the doctor all your questions and get satisfying answers. Only then, will you be ready to make a choice.
