Upon your decision for surgical hair restoration the next most crucial
step is finding a qualified surgeon. Use this list as a guide to help
you choose the perfect doctor.
1. Choose a surgeon who performs at least one hundred hair
restoration surgeries per year. An experienced surgeon will have some
privileges with a local hospital in case of a complication. Avoid the
family doctor who claims he can do the job for a small fee. A good place
to look is the International Alliance of Hair Restoration Surgeons also
known as IAHRS
2. Ask for credentials. See what he has done and what groups
he is a member of. Check the Better Business Bureau (BBB)

read the small print. All too often promises are broken by the small
4. Don't be fooled by fake photography. Pictures are easy to
manipulate. Look for before and after pictures at exactly the same angles
and the same distances. Look for pictures that depict the person from

and read them all. The quality of their material also reflects the quality
of their work.
8. If it is too GOOD to be true, it probably is.
9. Be logical. If you barely have any hair left, the surgeon
who promises every bit of hair back on your head is LYING.
