What questions should you ask a hair transplant surgeon?

3 questions to ask a hair transplant surgeon

If you are considering having a hair transplant, you will want to have an in-person consultation with a medical professional. Here are a few questions you should ask a surgeon before having a hair transplant:

  • Do I have enough donor hairs? For this question to be answered adequately, the hair transplant surgeon will need to examine the area where the hairs will be taken from. The size of the balding surface and the density you want to achieve will be major factors in determining whether or not you have a sufficient number of donor hairs to get the job done correctly.
  • How long will the procedure take? Depending on the the size of the treated area and the number of hairs required for the transplant surgery, the average procedure can last anywhere from two to six hours per day. Most patients will generally require at least two days of procedures in order for it to be done as well as possible.
  • Will further transplants be necessary? If your hair loss has not yet stabilized, it is possible that further loss will require additional procedures down the road. That is why it is so important to consult with the surgeon about the degree of hair loss you are currently experiencing. They will be able to gauge future patterns and whether or not future steps will need to be taken.
