Surgical Hair Restoration: What to Look for in a Surgeon

continued...

4. Contact your state medical board to see if any complaints have been filed against the hair transplant doctor or hair transplant group.

5. During your initial consultation, be sure to meet with the hair transplant doctor who will be performing your surgery. If your hair transplant doctor is not available, leave immediately and do not have a hair transplant performed by that hair transplant physician or hair transplant group. If you meet with a "medical consultant" remember the following:

a. The consultant should be there to provide you with basic information on the hair transplant procedure.
b. He or she is most likely not a medical professional and should not provide you with specific medical or surgical recommendations.
c. Consultants do have their place in this field, but cannot replace a consultation with a medical professional.

6. Is your hair transplant doctor's practice dedicated solely to surgical hair restoration? If not, what percentage of his/her practice is?
