Hair Transplant

Steps to Follow Before Going for Hair Transplant

Although a cosmetic procedure, hair transplant is nothing short of any other type of surgery and utmost care is imperative in selecting the surgeon, the clinic, the procedure and finding the success rates of the transplant.

Websites of most hair transplant clinics give the credentials of the surgeons who do the procedure. The procedure is safe when performed by an experienced surgeon but patients may differ in their reactions and healing times.

A 100 percent success for one person may not be reproduced in another person sometimes. There are instances of scars showing or grafts not establishing regrowth properly or the occurrence of small bumps. However all these can be rectified by additional surgical procedures. A thorough research of procedures and what will suit the patient is necessary which will be ensured by an experienced and qualified surgeon.

Research includes talking to previous patients, discussing on online forums and getting maximum feedback about the clinic before going for the procedure. The number of procedures undertaken by a surgeon is also vital as too many a day will leave the surgeon tired and unsteady. If done properly hair transplant can give natural looking hair which will last a lifetime.

After in-depth research of hair transplant procedure, surgeon, clinic and costs involved a study of safety precautions followed in a clinic by surgeons and assistants has to be examined. This can be done while going for a preliminary visit.

If surgeons and their team members are well experienced they will know the importance of sterile conditions in the procedure room. All surgical equipment has to be sterilized and protected well. The patients themselves should be wearing disposable garments when undergoing the hair transplant to avoid infection caused by dust and dirt.

The surgeon and his team should also be attired properly in gowns, with surgical masks, gloves, shoe covers etc. as removing hair grafts from one part of scalp and transplanting it in another part is similar to other types of surgery which are done in a specialized operating theater. Safety covers are a must on all other equipment in the surgery room also.

A dressing to cover the surgery area to protect it from infections is important. Infection on the scalp will upset the procedure which will then have to be repeated.

It is in the hands of the patient who should make a thorough investigation into every minute detail regarding hair transplant procedure and hygiene followed in a clinic besides about the expertise of the surgeon before going for the procedure.
