If you are suffering from hair loss, you have probably looked around on the Internet to find solutions to your problem. One possible solution that you have probably come across, is a hair transplant. While hair transplants can improve your situation, some of them will leave your head botched. For this reason, it is important to do your research before you get one.
With a hair transplant, a strip of tissue containing follicles is taken from the back of your head. This is done by excising it. The doctor will use a scalpel to literally cut a strip from the back of your head.
The hair transplant horror stories on the Internet are numerous. The farther back in time you go, the more nightmarish stories you will find. Back in the old days, people went to a hair transplant clinic without knowing anything about the skills and their previous track record. They ended up getting the dreaded doll hair effect on top of their heads, where horribly ugly hair plugs were growing from quarter inch deep scarring. As if that wasn’t enough, the scar in the back of their heads would also heal up real bad and leave them with constant pain and discomfort.
You’d think these types of horror scenarios don’t exist anymore, but they do. You may have heard somebody come out with it somewhere, but most people keep it to themselves. They are usually ashamed of it, afraid that people will laugh at them. And it can happen to anybody who decides to have a hair transplant. You might become a botched hair transplant victim yourself. So the price for taking the plunge while uninformed is quite high.
It definitely pays off to do your research in advance. When you are eying a certain clinic for getting your hair transplant done, make sure you have looked up reviews of the clinic online. Who can better tell you about what’s going on inside the clinic than people who have already been there to get a hair transplant. Also make sure you research the general reputation of the clinic and try to find out as much information on the doctors working there as you can.
Once you have informed yourself enough, you will know. Your gut feeling will tell you. So listen to it. This is no small decision. Think it through and spend as much time on your research as you feel you must. I promise you… you won’t regret it.
