As an individual who has had my entire head of hair restored and someone who has been in this industry for 12 years, the best advice that I can give you is to choose your doctor and your clinic based on the quality and consistency of his results and only based on their results. Many have made the mistake in thinking that all hair transplant doctors are the same, so they choose a clinic that is located nearby because it is convenient, or they go with the cheapest clinic to save money.
Choosing a clinic based on location:
This is a result that will be clearly visible on the top of your head for the rest of your life. Many of today’s top clinics in the United States will reimburse you for travel cost, and you can leave for home the very next day after the procedure, so all in all you are looking at a 3 day trip for a result that you will have the rest of your life……. Travel and location should not be a top consideration when choosing your doctor. The result you receive will be permanent and there for life, so don’t be afraid to take a short trip to go with your favorite clinic.
Choosing a clinic based on pricing:
Listen, this is not something that you want to cheap out on. The result you receive will be on top of your head front and center for everyone to see. Forever. You cannot hide it. People convince themselves that they can go to Turkey and have their procedure done for 1 – 2$ per graft, and save themselves thousands of dollars on their procedure.
This industry is just like any other industry. You get what you pay for. If you pay for a 1$ per graft procedure, you will get a 1$ per graft result.
Choosing your hair restoration doctor based on who is cheap is a huge mistake.
A repair job costs twice as much as a regular hair transplant. In the end you will cost yourself more money when you need a repair procedure because you went cheap the first time around.
Lastly, The Hair Transplant Mentor™ Joe Tillman did an outstanding documentary on going to Turkey for a Hair transplant. It is a must watch for anyone considering traveling to Turkey for their procedure:
