Most reputable clinics will require you to have a face to face consultation to really asses your hair loss and discuss realistic results with you.

During a consultation at the Harley Street Hair Clinic, we can also introduce you to the doctor who will be working on your hair transplant – this way you get to meet all of the staff and really get a feel for how we work.

Once you’ve visited a few of the clinics you liked it’s a good idea to sit down and both discuss what clinic you feel is the best fit.
