How to Choose the Right Hair Transplant Surgeon

Regardless of what type of medical procedure you are having it is understandable that you want complete confidence in the surgeon. It is your body and well-being that could potentially be affected so you need assurance that whoever is holding the tools knows what they are doing!

This is no different for hair transplants and even more so due to the specialized nature of the procedures, and the huge impact such surgeries can have on your physical appearance.

You are already probably conscious of your hairline or the thickness of your hair so it’s only natural that you want to protect yourself and get the right surgeon! In the below guide, we explain three simple steps you can take to choose the right hair transplant surgeon and hopefully show that Dr Yaman meets the criteria.

Step 1 – Check the Credentials of the Surgeon and Their Suitability for the Task

The first step is to research the surgeon themselves as they are the person who will perform the procedure and have your scalp in their hands! The most important questions to ask when choosing a hair transplant surgeon include:

  • Do they specialize in hair transplants or is it just one of their treatments?
  • How long have they been practicing for?
  • Approximately how many hair transplants have they performed?
  • What qualifications and credentials do they have?

Specialization is incredibly important and ideally, you want someone like Dr. Yaman who ONLY specializes in hair transplants. If it is their only specialization you know that they are dedicated to this type of surgery and have excellent experience in it.

Next, would you really trust the work and skills of a surgeon who has been practicing for only a few months? Probably not, and while obviously everyone has to start somewhere, it is preferable to choose a surgeon who has had years or even decades of experience in transplantations.

Building on this, you can glean more info about their suitability for the job by finding how many transplants they have performed, and what credentials/qualifications they have.

If a surgeon has only performed a few successful hair transplants you may question their skills and practical knowledge. Compare this to a surgeon who has completed hundreds of procedures over many years and you have a clear winner.

Lastly, if you are seeking a hair transplant in Turkey you should check if the surgeon who owns the practice is actually active. Some practice owners simply operate in an advisory and consulting capacity while other surgeons perform the procedures.

Step 2 – Check the Procedures and Treatment They Provide

Now that you know more about the person behind the mask and their skills, it’s vital to look at what procedures they offer.

You might find a fantastic surgeon with a wealth of experience but if they don’t perform the hair transplant you want then they aren’t the right choice. Examples of common hair transplant procedures include:

Other similar procedures relating to hair loss include body hair transplants, mustache and beard transplants, and eyebrow transplants. Ideally, the surgeon will offer a wide variety of options so that you can make an informed choice and get the best treatment for your hair loss condition.

You may not even know which hair transplant in Turkey is suitable or which would be the best for your hair loss condition. In such an instance, it’s even more important to look at the procedures offered but also to check if the surgeon offers something like a free consultation.

A free consultation is essential for this type of procedure as the surgeon can examine your hair, see what your issues are, and advise the best course of action.

Step 3 – Look for Patient Reviews and Before/After Photos

As the saying goes the proof is in the pudding but in this instance, the proof is in evidence of the surgeon’s hair transplant skills.

You would be far more likely to trust a surgeon who has before and after photos of their patients right? Of course! So this is the final thing you need to look for – evidence and testimonies from real patients.

Don’t just settle for written reviews though, ideally, you want plenty of the following:

Before and after photos are essential as they give you an idea of what you can expect from the surgery for your own hair. They also show that the surgeon is successful!

Accompanying the photos there should also be a description of the procedure together with important info like the number of hairs transplanted, how long it took, and recovery times, etc.

This should all be tied together with a testimonial from the patient with their thoughts on the procedure and their confidence in the surgeon.
