One of the most important aspects of hair restoration is choosing the right surgeon. With the greater acceptance of hair transplant surgery, finding a qualified provider is easier than ever. It is important to do your homework as choosing right surgeon can be as rewarding as choosing the wrong surgeon can be disastrous.
An important factor to consider when selecting among the various hair restoration surgeons is the interaction and relationship between yourself and the doctor.
Your doctor should listen to you, never hurry you along, and speak with you in language that you can understand. Becoming educated about the desired procedure(s) will make it easier to engage the surgeon in important conversations about your treatment.
Physicians from a number of different backgrounds believe themselves qualified to perform hair transplant surgery. Sometimes the physician will have no surgical training all but still market themselves as a competent hair restoration surgeon.
Dr. Kolstad is a board-certified Facial Plastic Surgeon. Facial Plastic Surgeons specialize in the cosmetic rejuvenation of the face and neck. Dr. Kolstad spent a year training at the Quatela Center For Hair Restoration learning state-of-the-art techniques for treatment of male pattern baldness and female pattern hair loss.
When researching providers It is important to check credentials, check with the state medical board, and check patient reviews. And finally, go with your intuition. If something doesn’t feel right, it probably isn’t. Be suspicious of a provider that offers the same procedure at half the cost of everyone else in town. Make sure that your surgeon is a person that you can trust and someone who will be with you through the end.
