For starters, your hair transplant consultation will most likely begin with an assessment of your hair transplant suitability and a discussion about a personalised treatment plan for hair restoration.

Your suitability for hair grafts may be based on your scalp health, rate and type of hair loss, as well as the vitality and location of your donor hair follicles. 

Este Medical is the leading provider of hair transplants, and our clinics offer free consultations where you can gather information and ask questions. You can book one right now if you like! 

What Happens During Hair Transplant Consultation 

Now, every hair loss clinic may have its own approach, but generally, here’s what you can expect to be covered in a hair graft consultation.

  • Medical History Review: Your consultant will review your medical history, including any existing health conditions, medications, and previous hair loss treatments.
  • Hair and Scalp Examination: A thorough analysis of your hair and scalp is conducted to assess the extent of hair loss, hair density, and the quality of the donor area (e.g., the area where hair follicles will be extracted).
  • Discussion of Your Goals & Regrowth Expectations: You will discuss your hair restoration goals, desired hairline shape, and any other expectations with the consultant to ensure they match with what can realistically be achieved.
  • Explanation of Procedures: Your consultant will review the available hair transplant techniques on offer, such as FUE and DHI for example, so as to recommend the most suitable option for you.
  • Customised Treatment Plan: Based on the examination and your goals, the consultant will draft a customised treatment plan, including the number of grafts needed and the anticipated coverage.
  • Treatment Travel Arrangements: In the case of Este Medical, while your consultation and aftercare may take place in the UK, your hair grafting procedure can be conducted at our Este Medical hair loss clinic in Turkey. Este Medical can help to arrange all your travel, including flights, taxi transfers, clinic appointments, and necessary hotel accommodations. 
  • Cost and Financing: During your consultation it is a good time to talk about how much everything will cost, and your consultant should be able to provide you with a detailed cost estimate for the procedure and discuss any financing options, if available. This is a good time to bring up insurance and ask if there are any promotions or transplant packages available. 
  • Pre- and Post-Operative Instructions: A really in-depth consultation may cover how to prepare for hair transplant surgery and what to expect during the recovery period, including aftercare treatments and instructions.
  • Q&A Session: When the session ends be sure to use this time to ask all your questions, as well as share any of your concerns about the procedure, recovery, or expected results.

This example of a fairly common and comprehensive consultation process should give you a clearer idea of what to expect, ensuring that you are well-informed and comfortable with your decision to proceed with a hair transplant, especially if you are travelling to another country for the procedure.

Another way you can prepare for a hair and scalp consultation is by reviewing expert advice about choosing a hair transplant clinic, how a hair transplant works, and what is the best hair transplant aftercare for example.
