Getting hair restoration treatment is a big deal; you’ll spend a lot of time researching different procedures until you find the treatment you want. Finding the perfect treatment isn’t the only thing you’ll need to research. You’ll need to spend a lot of time researching where to get your hair transplant too.
A lot of people look into getting hair transplants abroad as they think they’ll save money, but today we’re exploring the different reasons why you should stay closer to home and get a hair transplant in London.
One of the biggest factors in choosing the right hair transplant clinic is picking the ‘best’ clinic. You’ll come across a lot of hair clinics advertising themselves as ‘the UK’s best hair transplant clinic’, or ‘London’s best hair transplant clinic’. However, seeing a clinic that advertises that they’re the best clinic in the world doesn’t always mean they are.
London is the home of some of the best hair transplant clinics in the world and finding the right clinic for you can be easy. Healthcare facilities standards vary throughout the world, unlike in the U.K. where all reputable clinics are regulated by the CQC board.
We advise that you consider a few things; location – is the clinic easy for you to get to, and easy to contact? Do they have a consultation process? A good clinic will have a good consultation process where you’ll be able to ask plenty of questions and find the perfect treatment for you. Does the clinic offer the treatment you want, and do they specialise in any treatments? A good clinic will also have a variety of testimonials and before and after photos to show you. This will help you understand how your results could potentially look.
Picking a hair transplant clinic in London rather than one abroad can make things much easier for you. You’ll be able to contact your clinic with ease by phone and not have to worry about any extra phone charges. You’ll also find it much easier to visit the clinic if you would like to have a follow-up appointment. After your procedure, you might have some aftercare questions and having the opportunity to revisit the clinic with ease is important. At The Harley Street Hair Clinic, we like to invite all of our clients back to clinic after around one year for a follow-up appointment and in some cases, after a couple of months to check healing.
Picking a clinic in London will make any follow-up appointments, or even if you just want to head to the clinic for a chat about your progress much easier.
Getting a hair transplant, or any type of procedure can always be a worry. You’ll have a great deal on your mind; in most cases, you’ll be quite nervous and also worrying about the procedure and the results. At the Harley Street Hair Clinic, we do as much as we possibly can to ensure your whole journey with us is worry and stress-free.
As getting a hair transplant can be a big enough worry in itself we believe you should do anything possible to make the experience as stress-free as possible. Getting your hair transplant procedure in London will take away a lot of the stress of going abroad. We all know how stressful it can be packing up to go on holiday, getting to the airport and making sure you catch your flights on time. Having to do all of this as well as think about your procedure can become quite overwhelming.
Worrying about your procedure and the clinic you're going to is completely normal, and it is important to remember that when going to a clinic abroad you have no legal redress if you are unhappy with the finished procedure, this is an important factor to remember as getting your hair transplant in London might cause you less worry.
In most cases, people tend to go abroad to get hair restoration surgery, or other cosmetic surgery in order to save a little bit of money. Most clinics abroad advertise themselves as being a cheaper option for hair transplant.
Although the initial cost of a hair transplant abroad might seem cheaper, once you consider all of the costs it can really add up. You need to consider the costs after your hair transplant as these can increase the initial cost. It is wise to include costs of returning to the clinic, international phone calls and the cost of extra accommodation if it is needed.
When it comes to getting a hair transplant the cost should always come secondary to the quality of the procedure as it is very important to remember that a substandard hair transplant can end up costing a great deal to fix, increasing the cost by quite a bit.
