If you’re reading this article, you are likely part of a growing number of people who have realized that not all hair transplant doctors were created equal.  There is no legal training required to become a hair transplant doctor and any MD can simply label himself a hair transplant doctor with no prior training. More nerving is that he can hire anyone – anyone from even a local star bucks can be hired and trained. Needless to say that the regulations are not exactly tight and these variances allow a lot of doctors who have no prior experience with poor staff doing transplants that are by default of very poor quality.

So now, with the advent of the internet we finally have a means by which we can see a clinic’s work.  As a general rule of thumb, if a clinic does not have at least 30-70 before and after photos and 20-30 before and after videos I have to question how good they are. If they have them, now you can compare and decide for yourself who you feel is doing great work.  Most clients who come here feel we are one of the best clinics and that is why they choose us and fly from all over the world to our office.  We’ve had patients from Australia, China, UK and throughout North America come to our office.

So you’ve done your research, you know you want to get a transplant you did not irrationally pick just any clinic and you’re sitting in the room with the Doctor or Patient Advisor and they say to you “what do you want to do?”

I have met well over 10,000 patients interested in doing a transplant and I can tell you simply that if you are about 70% sure you want to do it that is about as good as it will get before doing a transplant and here’s why.

We are a culture of instant gratification. We want to see what we’ve bought and WOW ourselves immediately with it.  Breast Implants are there right away. A new nose – that’s a few weeks of waiting.  A hair transplant is one full year in order to see that you got your money’s worth.

Every patient that has ever walked through these doors and handed over somewhere around 10,000 dollars questioned it. Every single one!  Yet, one year later when they return for a check up they all say that it was the best choice they could have made now that the proof was there.

The only time people have regret is when they choose a bad clinic. Which, if you are reading this you will not do, because you are doing the ground work to find an amazing clinic and once you’re there if you are 70% sure take that as a “yes” because you will never be at 100% until the full  one year result has happened.
