It goes without saying that perhaps the most important factor in a successful hair transplant surgery is the chief surgeon performing the surgery. While all good surgeons work with a team that assist in the harvesting, dissecting and implanting of hair grafts, the ultimate decisions are made by the chief surgeon.
Due to the fact Hair Transplants aren’t carried out under general anesthetic and are financially lucrative many cosmetic surgeons with little training will claim to be an expert in the field of hair transplant or hair restoration. This is not so. A cosmetic surgeon is not trained and educated to the level of a plastic surgeon and furthermore not all plastic surgeon’s have the added training and experience to specialize in Hair Transplant Surgery.
