Why Experience Matters When You Choose a Hair Transplant Surgeon
Once you resolve to address hair loss with a hair transplant, one of the most important things you can do is choose an experienced surgeon. A hair transplant are equal parts art and science, and unfortunately, some doctors who have less experience may create results that look less appealing and natural. To ensure that you are completely satisfied with your results, the team of experts at International Hair Institute in Chicago encourage you to prioritize experience when searching for a surgeon.
Hair Transplants Require a Lot of Skill
Although most hair transplants are safe and an easy procedure for a patient to undergo, it takes a high level of skill and precision for a surgeon to perform this surgery. An experienced surgeon has honed his craft and understands exactly how to design, extract and then implant follicles to create a hairline and hair pattern that looks natural.
The Ability to Customize the Surgery
Be wary of a surgeon who utilizes a single approach when it comes to hair transplant. There are multiple approaches to hair transplants. Most clinics only use the FUE method (follicular unit extraction); however, International Hair Institute also offers FUT (follicular unit transplantation). During a consultation, you can communicate your goals and desired look for a hair transplant, and an experienced surgeon can make those wishes a reality, and advise on which method, FUE or FUT might be the best fit for your surgery.
High Safety Standards
While a hair transplant is considered a safe procedure, any surgery poses some risk of complications or side effects. In the hands of a less experienced surgeon, you are more likely to bleed, scar, or develop an infection. Experienced surgeons have techniques to minimize complication risks so that your recovery is smooth, brief, and free of significant discomfort.
A Proven Track Record
Another aspect of choosing an experienced hair transplant specialist is that you can know what to expect in terms of the quality of care. When speaking with the clinic staff or the Doctor, feel free to ask about Doctor’s background and experience.
