Beware the Internet !


If you are like most people who are considering a hair transplant and are researching the web about hair transplantation, you will most likely come across certain websites on the internet that provide a database for hair restoration doctors. These databases make recommendations about who they consider to be the best transplant surgeons around the world and are supposedly there to help you make the right decision when choosing the best clinic for your procedure.

However, one must ask the question. How do these websites find the hair restoration doctors they list on their database? Do they survey every hair transplant doctor on the planet?

Is it possible that maybe these websites are sponsored by the very doctors they recommend? Do they do business with these doctors and also do they offer any warranty or guarantee for the doctors they recommend? And why are there still so many other good hair restoration doctors out there who are not recommended? Could it be that it is because these other doctors are not affiliated with them? In addition most of the doctors endorsed by these websites have been known to charge higher prices than even more renowned hair transplant surgeons, possibly because they need to pay back the website to cover their sponsorship fees. So it’s a win-win strategy.

One certain hair restoration website has even had it’s own staff join the website forum posing as members pretending to be past patients from one of the website’s recommended doctors. They participate in discussions somewhat like experienced advisers giving new prospective patients advice about how to find the right doctor. If by chance a potential patient is interested in any hair transplant doctor who happens to not be sponsored by their website they will contribute to the conversation and make non-supportive comments about whoever the patient may be discussing and attempt to steer them back to one of their own listed doctors. The trouble is that some of the listed doctors that they have been known to endorse have only been practicing for a few years at the most, and if that is truly the case, should they really receive a recommendation?

Another site on the web has even provided a ranking of the best hair restoration doctors in the world, somewhat like a top ten best hair restoration list. At this point in time we weren’t aware that they held hair transplant surgery competitions like some sort of world championship tournament. Just be aware that recommending the best hair transplant surgeon on earth would be like recommending the best dentist on earth. It would be an impossible task!

So how can a layperson from a website actually survey and evaluate the results of hair restoration doctors from around the world? Not only does he or she not have the relevant medical knowledge or their own team of experts to evaluate every doctor, what doctor is going to allow someone off the street to come into their clinic and completely evaluate and overhaul their work? Business doesn’t work like that!

Take an exhibition of fine art for example, you generally need a group of art critics or experts to justify or explain the art. As far as the layperson is concerned, without the relevant knowledge or experience, they would be unable to tell what was valuable and what wasn’t. In a talent quest, technically it would be better to have a panel of professional singers choose the best singer, but because it is subjective, the audience may very well choose a different winner to that of the judges.

It is also feasible that even though a patient may be very happy with the result from their doctor, it doesn't necessarily mean that they received the absolute best result possible, simply because one generally cannot compare their own transplant with that of a patient who had a procedure performed by a different doctor. You would have to physically compare your result side by side with another patient and only then would you be able to confirm whether your transplant was as good as their’s or was less than satisfactory.

Although, there still may be one other potential way to actually verify which doctors should be recommended above all others when it comes to hair transplantation. Simply hold a convention and invite all hair restoration doctors from around to world to assemble with their patients and then allow each and every one to be evaluated by a group of actual hair restoration experts and not by a layperson.

The funds to support this convention could be raised either through sponsorship from the big pharmaceutical companies or the cost could be covered by application fees paid by the attending doctors. You would think that most hair restoration surgeons would be more than interested in participating in such a meeting because you could then finally establish once and for all a true accredited list of hair restoration doctors who wouldn’t need to be forever constantly paying fees to certain websites for a recommendation.

A LAYPERSON DOESN’T HAVE THE KNOWLEDGE OR THE ABILITY TO EVALUATE THE RESULTS OF ANY HAIR RESTORATION DOCTOR. ONLY AN EXPERT TRAINED IN THE ART OF HAIR RESTORATION AND SOMEONE WHO UNDERSTANDS THE PROCEDURE CAN EVALUATE THE RESULT OF ANOTHER HAIR TRANSPLANT DOCTOR!!!

You would do much better to simply contact the doctor you are interested in directly and do as much of your own research as you can. Find out all the positive or negative feedback that you can, review his work, read testimonials etc, all until you are satisfied you have enough information before you go ahead. Choosing the right hair transplantation clinic is extremely important, so do your research, make your own decision and you will have no regrets.
