How to pick the right hair transplant clinic

By Alex

If you have experienced hair loss and have decided to have a hair transplant, the most important question to ask now is: how do I pick the right hair transplant clinic for me?

We strongly advise you research and investigate all your options as hair transplantation surgery involves precious donor hair, which is finite, and any hair restoration should be planned accurately for you to achieve the best result possible. There are many different factors that are important when picking a clinic and we have covered them here for you.

Do they offer a consultation before treatment?

Hair loss is a natural part of life, and it can happen for many different reasons - which can affect the type of treatment needed. Some people believe that their hair loss instantly means they need a hair transplant, when, in actual fact, they are too early.

Finding a clinic that offers a no obligation consultation before your treatment will allow you to find out exactly what is causing your hair loss and find the perfect treatment for you.

Do they offer the treatment you need?

There are different types of treatments that can help with different causes and stages of hair loss. It is important to find a hair transplant clinic that offers the best treatment for you.

You may believe that you need an FUE hair transplant when in actual fact your hair has only just started to recede. In which case, you could possibly go down the route of hair loss medication or even SMP (scalp micro pigmentation) treatment.

It is important to do research into your hair transplant clinic to see exactly what treatments the offer, and what options could work for you.

How much experience does the physician have?

One of the most important factors in choosing the right hair transplant clinic is picking one with good staff and physicians. It is vital to find out as much information about the physicians as possible. Firstly, do they specialise in hair transplant treatments and are they all registered with the GMC?

Does the clinic specialise in any treatments?

Finding a clinic that specialises in one particular treatment highlights how they could be leaders in the field of this technology.

At the Harley Street Hair Clinic, we are the only clinic in the UK to specialise in follicular transfer hair transplant technology.

Does the clinic have before and after photos?

A reputable hair transplant clinic should have a gallery of before and after photos to highlight the great work achieved at the clinic. Being able to look through a variety of different before and after photos gives you the opportunity to see how well the clinic can get results, and how frequently.

In some cases it is great to see any case studies the clinic has produced. A case study is a great way to see how different patients found the treatment and how well it worked for different people. A case study is usually an in-depth analysis that will look into a selection of patients.

When looking for the right hair transplant clinic for you, take all of these points into consideration, but most importantly find a clinic with great staff that make you feel welcome and comfortable.
