If you have thinning and/or receding hair you may very well be considering the possibility of hair transplantation in the Bay Area. You have probably seen advertising from the big national chains for whichever particular procedure they are promoting telling you that the way they do it is the way to go.
For some people that may well hold true. However, with any surgical operation – for that is what it is – it makes sense to get a second opinion. Apart from the medical aspects, hair transplant surgery is not cheap so you should consider all your hair transplant options and not just jump at the first offer. Every person is unique, and every hair loss situation is unique. Therefore, working with a trained hair transplant expert is the best way to get a unique, individualized recommendation for your own hair situation. This is true whether you are a man or a woman, old or young, with straight or curly hair, etc.
Some procedures may be a better choice for one particular patient and at the same time not the best option for another. For instance, the ARTAS robotic system may be a good choice for some people and not for others. This can even include the way that you want to wear your hair post-op!
Some procedures may be able to be completed in one session while others may need two or more visits. This of course will also have a bearing on the overall cost. The more sessions that are needed with the surgeon, the more the finished product will cost. If you happen to be a multi-millionaire, then the cost may be of no concern, but for most patients it is an important factor to take into consideration when assessing their hair transplant options.
Then there is the question of the style in which you want to wear your hair after your transplant. One style may benefit from a certain procedure while another would be better served by a different choice.
