If you needed, highly advanced surgery, you would probably get a recommendation from your regular physician. Or, maybe you would consult with a surgeon at a major teaching hospital like Dartmouth, or Beth Israel in Boston.
That’s just not possible when it comes to finding the best hair transplant doctor. One reason is because the best hair transplant doctor won’t be found at a major teaching hospital. The best hair transplant doctor is also not board certified by the ABMS, as with other surgical specialties.
So how do you find the best hair restoration surgeon? How do you even define what the best hair restoration surgery is? Then, how do make sure you get the best hair restoration possible?
The process toward getting the best hair restoration is not difficult, but it does take some homework on your part, as well as using techniques that are different from choosing a regular surgeon.
First, since there is no certifying board, you have to be much more diligent about determining the capabilities of any hair transplant surgeons. Second you should ask any surgeon you are considering to give you at least five patients that you can call to see how their experience went.
Finally, the best hair transplant doctor will always be a member in good standing with the American Board of Hair Restoration Surgery (ABHRS).
