Hair replacement surgery has become a relatively routine procedure that is now performed all over the world. The international Society of hair restoration surgery however recognizes only a number of licensed surgeons worldwide who are capable of performing this technique to the procedural and substantial medical specifications for natural hair restoration.

Getting your hair restoration surgery done by an unlicensed surgeon could potentially put your health at risk. If you are seeking hair restoration surgery, you should be aware of some of the following concerns and actionable items before proceeding:

Only licensed physicians and nurse practitioners with a license to practice should be present for diagnostic evaluation, surgery planning, consultation, surgery execution, hairline design, hair harvesting and recipient site creation as well as the ongoing management of adverse reactions after surgery.

Even the most minimally invasive restoration procedure should be treated as surgery that an expert with extensive medical knowledge needs to be the one to oversee the process entirely. In follicular unit hair transplants especially hundreds or even a few thousand incisions need to be made and this requires significant training as well as an aesthetic medicine.

From country to country there are various laws put in place that suggest which portions of the procedure can be delegated to an unlicensed medical personnel. At least one licensed provider needs to be available to perform all surgical excision and incisions in any procedure in most cases internationally.

Most medical professionals will advertise the credentials that they have. Always ensure that this will be the professional that is going to be performing your surgery and if the person seems unsure or apt to delegate portions of your surgery to unlicensed personnel, consider going to another hair transplant service entirely.

Keep some of these top ideas in mind when preparing for hair replacement surgery and working with top clinics around the world. Do not place your health at risk.
