Getting a hair transplant is a nerve-racking experience, and Dr. Gary Linkov gives patients tips to help find that perfect hair transplant surgeon. In his YouTube video, Dr. Linkov details the importance of knowing your surgeon before you commit to the surgery. Choosing a hair transplant specialist who knows what they’re doing is key to getting great results and an excellent experience throughout the post-surgical procedure.
Choosing a Hair Restoration Specialist
Hair restoration can be complex, as many clinics may have a good reputation. Still, they could have a few experienced doctors. To find a specialist who not only cares but goes above and beyond because they understand the process, you’ll need to research and be direct at consultations.
Dr. Gary Linkov stresses that, “At the end of the day, you’re not really picking a clinic, you’re picking a doctor so you can go to a named clinic, but you want to make sure that you know who your doctor is.”
What to Ask at Your Next Consultation
Here are a few ideas of crucial questions to ask to narrow down your search:
- How much experience do they have?
- Where were they trained?
- Are they International Society For Hair and Restoration (ISHRS) members?
- How involved are they with the surgery?
Hair restoration can be a stressful surgery, but sharing the experience can help ease the tension and help others feel like they aren’t alone. If you’re going through the process, please feel free to share any tips and tricks you did or will use when choosing a specialist.
