Getting a hair transplant is an important decision, before you go ahead and book a hair transplant, we recommend having several medical recommendations on what is the best treatment for you. We advise having at least 2 hair transplant online consultations before making a decision.
There are 7 things you should consider on a Hair Transplant Online Consultation: right candidate, number of grafts, distribution, sessions, medical treatment, price, and expectations.
Candidate for Hair Transplant
Not everyone is a good candidate for hair transplantation, It’s always recommended to see a specialist, who will advise and recommend the best treatment for each patient. Different criteria help to determine if a person is a suitable aspirant for a hair transplant such as age, gender, hair type, level of alopecia, and the elasticity of the donor area.
Number of grafts
To estimate the number of grafts needed for a hair transplant, several aspects must be taken into account: the degree of hair loss, the density of the donor area, number of hairs per follicular unit, contrast between hair color and skin, hair characteristics, and future hair loss.
Depending on all these factors, the number of grafts for the procedure can be estimated. Keep in mind that the cost of a hair transplant depends on the number of grafts being transplanted not hairs.
How a surgeon distributes grafts has a significant impact on the success of the hair transplant. The surgeon will determine which bald areas require more focus to achieve a successful and natural look.
Depending on the number of grafts the surgeon will focus on specific areas of the scalp like hairline, top, or crown.
Based on the number of grafts needed for the hair transplant, the surgeon will determine the number of sessions needed to achieve the best results. Even though a single session is enough for most cases, some patients might benefit from a second session to improve density and definition.
In certain circumstances, the patient will need to use the medical treatment after the hair transplant to preserve the native hair to grow stronger and not fall off.
In most cases, the price of a hair transplant treatment is based on the number of grafts needed to restore the bald area. It’s important to understand the difference between grafts and hairs since a graft can have multiple hairs.
An online evaluation is necessary to determine the exact price for the treatment.
Most hair transplants achieve excellent results and patients can see hair growth in a few months after the procedure. But it’s very important to have realistic expectations because the results of a hair transplant may vary depending on each patient.
