Home >> Selecting a Hair Treatment Clinic

Women suffer from female pattern baldness due to many reasons, heredity being a major one. In the case of female pattern baldness people go for many treatments. These include surgical as well as non-surgical methods.

Hair transplantation is a very effective method of hair restoration in the case of female pattern baldness. It is a surgical method involving replacement of a part of the scalp from the area where there is hair growth onto an area where there is no growth of hair.

Selection of a good clinic for a surgical method of hair restoration is very important. The quality of the result of the operation depends on the selection of the clinic. It is necessary to be very careful in choosing the right clinic.

There are several factors that should be considered in the case of choosing a hair transplantation clinic. A crucial factor is the source of information you came to know about the clinic from. One should see whether the information about the clinic is coming from Yellow Pages, Internet or personal recommendation. Reference from a friend is always a better way since it involves the first hand experience of the clinic.

Reputation of a clinic is very much important in the case of selection of one. Cross-reference can work for you. People who had treatment from the clinic can give you a useful feedback. If the credential of the clinic is shady then it is a better idea to go for another one. A wrong choice can result in a bad result of the female pattern baldness treatment.

If a certain clinic has been in business for long it is a good reflection on it. That clinic is obviously more dependable compared to the newer ones.

Venue of a clinic matters a lot. If it is based in a good area it shows its professional status. If it has a big building and several staff then it is better.

Many clinics are run from a small rented place or a small office that does not inspire confidence. They are less dependable and trustworthy. Those clinics can close their business and vanish without any trace in a short period of time. If a clinic is dependable it is better in the case of any complexity after the hair restoration treatment.

It is often seen that many clinics pressurize patients to go for the treatment. It is a bad reflection on them. Obviously it means that the clinic is more interested in making money by admitting patients for treatment and less worried about them and their problems.

It is very important to see whether the hair transplantation clinic you are going for has good surgeons. Qualification and experience of a surgeon matter a lot, because it is he/she who is going to operate. If the surgeon is a member of a society like the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgeons (ISHRS) it is better, since it implies he/she has some expertise in the field.

It is much convenient and pleasant to work with someone you are comfortable with. If you have a good rapport with a surgeon working at a clinic it is better to go for that clinic since personal comfort level matters, especially in the case of multiple sessions.
