6 Ways to Mislead Potential Hair Transplant Patients

Hair transplant is a cosmetic surgery that involves removal of hair follicles from the donor area
and transplanting them to the recipient area. The donor area is the area of the head where a
person still retains natural hair growth, and recipient area is the area with scanty or no hair

Loss of hair affects the overall appearance of a person and brings down one’s self-confidence.
Hair transplant technique has worked miracles in helping such people gain back their lost hair
as well as the self-confidence. Thus, hair transplantation is rapidly gaining popularity.

People opting for a hair transplant surgery are growing at a high pace and so in the number of
hospitals and clinics providing hair transplant facilities. However, all these hospitals and
healthcare centers do not provide up to the mark services and results. Many fake companies
have come up which make it difficult for patients to choose wisely. Thus, a detailed study of
hair fall treatments and its techniques is required in order to avoid being misled.

Fancy advertisements and attractive discount on the transplantation surgery may easily attract
anyone. However, these may not always give good results. Many non-surgical hair fall treatments like medications and laser treatment may also be promoted by many health care providers. But, it should be kept in mind that these treatments do not give 100% guarantee for hair restoration. It should always be kept in mind that the best hair transplant is the one that gives the best result.

Listed below are some of the most common arguments given by fake health care providers in
order to attract more customers.

1) Many hair care centers claim that they use a very modern technique of hair extraction.
According to their arguments and promotional, they can extract multiple numbers of hair
follicles using advanced techniques. They claim that this type of extraction has a higher success
rate compared to the advanced FUE technique. However, this must be kept in mind that this is
not a modern approach but an outdated slit graft approach which leaves behind a scar at the
donor area. FUE hair transplant is much advanced and safe compared to the slit graft

2) Hair transplantation is a very artistic and skillful cosmetic surgery. It requires a proper study
of hair fall pattern and patient’s facial structure. The hairline made through the surgery must
look natural to enhance the appearance.

Many hospitals proudly declare that they employ robots to carry on hair transplant surgery.
However, the fact is that no robot has proved to be as good as a surgeon. Although, FUT procedure performed by robots have proved highly successful; but, for FUE manual extraction is still the most successful method.

3) In some of the hospitals, general anesthesia is given to the patient undergoing a hair
transplant. However, the fact is that this is not required and may result in increasing the risk
factor due to anesthesia. These hospitals claim that general anesthesia would assure a pain-free
experience. But the fact is that anesthesia that numbs only the donor and recipient areas are
enough to carry on the hair transplantation.

4) Fake hair care providers assure the patients that general anesthesia would be good for the
surgery. However, the reason behind this may also be that in such clinics, generally, harvesting
is done by the technicians and not the surgeons themselves. The patient being unconscious due
to the effect of anesthesia does not realize this fact and is being fooled.

5) Some of the clinics and hospitals also assure the patient with a lesser surgery time. As they
claim, they achieve this by simultaneously implanting the harvested grafts. However, all these
claims are nothing but a trick to attract customers. Moreover, what matters more is perfection
in the surgery and not the time taken in performing it.

6) Another great factor that may mislead a patient is the hair transplant cost. Hair transplant
cost in India is generally between $5000 and $20000. If a clinic assures you a lesser cost, there
may be some hidden cost. In even worse cases, the clinic may not be providing genuine
transplant at all.
