Any clinic you choose is mostly because of the surgeon. But when you reach the clinic for hair transplant its possible you are handed over to a technician for follicle extraction or some unknown junior or trainee doctor does your hair transplant. this is extremely serious issue and most patients do not know what to do? Patients to clarify with surgeon he is consulting with about who will do the procedure. Hair transplant cost also varies with who will do the procedure. All details must be taken before hand so that you are not disappointed with your results after 1 year of transplant. Patients should do adequate research to prevent themselves regretting for life. Bad or compromised transplant is for life and cannot be reversed completely.

Transparency is Important when you undergo hair transplant in any clinics. Terms like Unlimited hair transplant, Cheap hair transplant, robotic hair transplant are the terms one patient should get alert of. Hair transplant is a surgical procedure and involved certain costs. Clinics resorting to these terms are not transparent. Its important that patients should be guided properly.
Graft count is another area where clinics lacks transparency. Most clinics claiming to do 6000 or 7000 grafts actually do half of it. Most clinics take out low quality grafts from beard and body in two days session which finishes almost entire donor area in single transplant. Hair loss is progressive in most young patients and grafts should be used judiciously depending on age of patients.
Most patients forget that hair transplant is not a procedure you can undergo in salons and with any doctor like dentist etc. Recent incident like death of hair transplant patient has happend because patient was undergoing hair transplant at a salon with technicians. Only research can save you from regret. Clinics which are top in India take care of your safety seriously. Patients should also not get their hair transplant with anybody and anywhere.
