Hair transplantation is definitely a niche industry and takes a certain level of skill to create a natural hair transplant.
There are so many horror stories of “plug-like” results. But the reality is – NO ONE’S hair grows at a perfect 180 degree angle, so why should your hair transplant be that way? When choosing the right hair transplant surgeon, there are several key factors to look for when doing your research. Firstly, make sure the surgeon is a practicing physician. Before doing hair restoration in Los Angeles, Dr. Kahen was performing general surgery at NYU, Beth Israel Medical Center and the Long Island Jewish Medical Center. He understands the importance of providing a customized experience for every patient that walks through the door. He provides in-depth consultations to determine if you are a good candidate for hair transplant, based on the cause of your hair loss and the stage.
Another important factor is the procedure itself. Dr. Kahen creates each and every incision during the FUE procedure (follicular unit extraction) and uses customized tools based on the follicle size of the patient, so the hair grows back naturally. Our doctor sees the patient through the entire procedure, from the consultation to the follow-up appointment after the procedure, to the follow-up appointment six months after the procedure to see the hair growth results. This is important because he controls the entire process, and the physician’s assistants merely assist – Dr. Kahen is responsible for every single incision and placement during the procedure.
So when researching for a hair restoration clinic, make sure to look at the technique they use, the responsibility of the doctor and if the doctor is actually a physician. Hair restoration is not just a procedure, it’s an art form. And there are some great doctors out there that take it as seriously as we do. Do your research!
