Choos­ing the right hair trans­plant sur­geon in Los Ange­les or in any city is tricky in itself. When you’re not look­ing for a bar­gain, it’s impor­tant to make edu­cated deci­sions about the sur­geon, the clinic — and most impor­tantly, the hair trans­plant..

When you even­tu­ally choose your hair trans­plant clinic, there will be many ques­tions that you have. But how will you know if the sur­geon val­ues qual­ity con­trol? Dur­ing a hair trans­plant surgery, whether the doc­tor is using Strip Har­vest­ing or Fol­lic­u­lar Unit Extrac­tion, qual­ity con­trol is to the up-most impor­tance in the pro­ce­dure. This is because when the fol­lic­u­lar grafts are extracted, it is impor­tant that the grafts being trans­planted are prime for hair trans­plant. If the fol­lic­u­lar grafts are dam­aged, bro­ken or not opti­mal for trans­plant, the hair trans­plant might not be suc­cess­ful — the sur­geon needs to be mon­i­tor­ing this process.

Qual­ity con­trol dur­ing a hair trans­plant pro­ce­dure ensures max­i­mum den­sity and suc­cess­ful growth in the trans­planted area. If the doc­tor is over­see­ing both the dis­sec­tion and trans­plan­ta­tion of the fol­lic­u­lar grafts in Strip Har­vest­ing and the extrac­tion and trans­plant in Fol­lic­u­lar Unit Extrac­tion, the chance for error is very low. A sur­geon that prac­tices qual­ity con­trol under­stands the impor­tance of this process, as the sur­geon and the tech­ni­cians only have one chance to get it right. Once the grafts are trans­planted, the next step is to wait for the growth to appear in the trans­planted area, which won’t begin browth until about a month  after the pro­ce­dure and actu­ally peak at about three to four months. Once the growth hap­pens, or if it some­how is not suc­cess­ful, it’s almost too lit­tle too late — another pro­ce­dure must be done to cor­rect the prob­lem.
