About Hair Transplant Adviser

The goal of the hair transplant adviser is to provide you with the tools to make the best possible choices in dealing with your hair loss.

Choosing to have hair restoration surgery is an important decision. You are seeking a treatment that will permantently alter your appearance. In today's procedure-dominated medical industry, many doctors make decisions based upon their own economic interests rather than considering what is in the best interest of the patients. Therefore, it is crucial that you take the time to educate yourself about both, the hair transplant procedure and the physician who will perform surgery. This will help to ensure that you have a safe procedure and that you achieve the best possible cosmetic result. This site contains detailed information on procedures such as follicular unit transplantation and follicular unit extraction.
