Choosing the right surgeon is important no matter what type of medical procedure you’re having. When it comes to hair transplant surgery, finding the right hair transplant surgeon can mean the difference between a great result and a disappointing one.
Good vs. Bad Hair Transplant
Most people only notice bad hair transplants. That’s because good hair transplantation results are nearly undetectable. What separates good hair transplantation from a bad one is the experience and skill of the physician performing the procedure. Inexperienced physicians, or those who don’t practice hair restoration exclusively, are more likely to produce results that look unnatural and are easily noticeable. That’s why choosing the right hair restoration physician is such an important decision.
Who Can Perform a Hair Transplant Surgery?
Technically, any physician/surgeon with the technical know-how can perform a hair restoration surgery. There are plenty of general physicians and plastic surgeons that offer hair transplantations in addition to their other services. But that doesn’t mean the results will always be the same. In addition to the technical knowledge required to perform a successful hair transplant surgery, it also takes a level of artistry and experience that only comes from surgeons who specialize in hair restoration.
How to Choose a Hair Transplant Surgeon
When researching potential hair transplant surgeons, you’ll want to consider a number of different factors, including:
- Whether they specialize in hair restoration
- How long they’ve been in practice
- How many hair transplant procedures they’ve performed
- What board certifications/credentials they have
- Before/after pictures of actual patients
Bosley—the Hair Transplant Specialists
At Bosley, our physicians specialize in hair transplant surgery and have established a reputation for their technical and artistic skills. In order to achieve the best possible results, our physicians take many factors into consideration, including your:
- Facial structure
- Existing hairline
- Quality of hair
- Long-term goals
- Family history of hair loss
Once these factors are taken into account, our doctors use their knowledge of balance and proportion, as well as blending and shading, to add the appropriate amount of density to your thinning hair. The goal isn’t to create a perfectly symmetrical straight line (because a Bosley hairline isn’t a line at all). It’s about creating a zone of hair that transitions from finer, thinner hair to denser, thicker hair—just like a natural hairline. By blending fine delicate hairs into the hairline zone, a great hair transplant can make your hairline look as natural as your original one. This is the Bosley artistic difference.
