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.
