Knowing what to ask in a Hair Transplant consultation can be overwhelming so we wanted to make it easy for potential patients to get the information they need. We thought a checklist of questions could help potential patients get to grips with what we offer and why.
Below are a number of questions we recommend patients ask during a consultation or ensure get covered at some point. Consultations are your chance to be honest and expect honest answers.
- What procedures are on offer and why?
- What do you think about the differences between FUE and FUT?
- Can I see lots of before and after photos?
- How many patients have you treated?
- Can I speak to former patients?
- Can I see written testimonials?
- How long have you been working?
- What accreditation and memberships do you have?
- Can I see any proof of qualifications? Any websites to visit to verify, for example?
- What is the experience of the hair transplant technicians?
- How much can be harvested in one session? Can it all be achieved in one session?
- How many grafts are needed now and what is likely to happen in the future?
- How and where will the grafts be taken from the donor areas?
- Am I a good candidate and why?
- Am I being realistic?
- How suitable am I?
- Can I see any closely comparable before and after pictures of patients?
- Do you recommend hair loss medication before and after the procedure to help?
- What about taking hair loss medication after the transplant? Can you prescribe?
- What aftercare is needed?
- What pre-procedure care is needed?
- Have you had a hair transplant? (One of very few professions where you’re recommended to ask)
- What are the full costs going forward? Do you need more consultations?
- Are there any pre-procedure or post-procedure costs? Is there any need for a contingency plan in case extra time and costs are needed?
- Is the price I’m quoted the price I’ll end up paying?
- How long after the consultation is it possible to book a procedure?
