Micrografting Surgeons

Along with basic procedural guidelines and price estimates, there are several questions you should ask your surgeon before committing to the procedure.

Before & After Photographs of Micrografting

First, ask for pictures of customers’ before and after shots with a minimum of 10 shots per customer. The surgeon must be able to provide you with photos of the scalp taken from multiple angles in front of the same background with the same lighting so you can really see the surgeon’s work and the surgery’s outcome.

Micrografting Patient Testimonials

Ask to get in touch with previous clients who have had the same treatment, preferably those who have similar hair and skin characteristics to your own. Ask the patients themselves if they were satisfied with the surgery and if they would recommend the surgeon to you. If the previous patient is willing, ask if you can see their results so you can gauge for yourself if this clinic would meet your own expectations.

Micrografting Surgeons Credentials

Ask about the physician’s credentials, training, and specialties. It may feel a bit awkward to play inquisitor but being straight-forward about what you expect from your surgeon will help you find the doctor that’s best for you. You should also enquire if the surgeon specialises in hair transplants, the percentage of their practice devoted to hair transplants, as well as the type of training in such operations the surgeon has undergone. You can look online at sites like the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery to find an ISHRS qualified member. You can also ‘feel out’ the personality of the surgeon, the staff, and the office during your consultation to ensure you are compatible with the style and personality of the business.

Surgeons Micrografting Technique

Ask if micrografting is the right procedure for you. It may be that FUE or some other type of treatment like medications, topical solutions, hair pieces, or lasers may be the more effective procedure for the extent of your hair loss.

Enquire how the surgeon removes the hair grafts, how large the grafts are, and if he/she uses microscopes to detach the follicles. Ask if the surgeon only transplants follicular units or if he/she will transplant larger segments of hair. The best method is follicular unit transplantation, either through micrografting or FUE detached from the scalp by using a microscope. When the units are removed with high powered microscopes, the entire unit, gland, and muscle cells can all be moved together for a more natural looking outcome. Large grafts often give undesirable results so check of the surgeons offer these as you may be disappointed with the synthetic look afterwards.

These are merely a few questions which you should ask your doctor. It is a good idea to make a list of all of your questions, concerns, misgivings, etc, before you go into the surgeon’s office to ensure that all of your enquiries will be answered before making a final decision. Most surgeons understand that you will have queries and if they are good surgeons they will patiently and willingly go through the entire procedure and answer all of your questions with you, map out your ideal look, and explain what the realistic outcome will be.
