Hair Transplant Consultation Preview

Hair Transplant Consultation Preview

In your initial consultation with your surgeon, they will assess your family and personal history of hair loss and any previous hair transplant procedures. The evaluation will also include an examination of your current hair growth and loss, and a discussion of your desired results.

We recommend that you inquire with your surgeon about the expected procedure, recovery time, and final outcome. Your surgeon will also discuss how your lifestyle may impact the outcome and inform you of any medical conditions that could affect the surgery.

You should provide your surgeon with a complete and detailed medical history, including all medication usage in the past few weeks. Don’t hesitate to share any information that would assist the surgeon in making an informed decision about your treatment.

Before leaving the office, we want you to fully comprehend the procedure. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to stay and ask for clarification. Your surgeon will explain in detail the time required for a graft procedure, the number of sessions necessary, and the number of grafts performed during each session.

What You Can Expect

  1. Medical history review: The surgeon will start by reviewing your medical history, including family history and any medications that could affect hair growth.
  2. Hair and scalp evaluation: The surgeon will examine your hair and scalp’s overall condition, looking for signs of hair loss, hair density, and hair quality.
  3. Diagnosis: Based on the hair and scalp evaluation, the surgeon will diagnose the degree and pattern of hair loss.
  4. Determining candidacy: Not everyone is a candidate for hair transplant surgery. The surgeon will assess if you are a good candidate for the procedure based on your hair loss pattern, hair density, donor hair availability, age, and overall health.
  5. Discuss procedure options: The surgeon will discuss the hair transplant options available, such as follicular unit transplantation (FUT) or follicular unit extraction (FUE), and help you choose the most appropriate one for you.
  6. Discuss expected outcomes: The surgeon will discuss the expected outcomes of the hair transplant surgery and the possible risks and complications.
  7. Cost and financing: The surgeon will provide an estimate of the cost of the procedure and discuss payment options, including financing and insurance coverage.
  8. Post-operative care: The surgeon will provide you with post-operative care instructions, medication details, and what to expect in the days and weeks following the procedure.

It’s important to prepare for your consultation by writing down any questions you may have about the procedure, including risks and recovery time.
