Hair Transplant Protocols and Ethics

Hair transplant protocols are in place to set standards. For the execution of a hair transplant. A hair transplant is considered a relatively minor surgical procedure. That said, a hair transplant demands both surgical and artistic skills. As well as good planning. Hair loss can be personal. As a result, so can deciding to restore your hair. For example, it´s not like buying a product off the shelf. Where you just compare prices. The goal of a hair transplant is to restore a natural looking head of hair. But, hair transplants can vary greatly in quality. As a result, the best hair transplant requires planning, expertise and experience.

Did You Know?

Low cost hair transplants

Many cosmetic centres now offer hair transplants. On their long list of services. With the Doctor is the figurehead. Opposed to the main practitioner. The Doctor’s role has been substituted. Often with partially or non-medical certified workers. The reason. Low-cost workers are very cost effective. As well as plentiful. Certainly much easier to find compared to expensive Doctors and medical professionals.

There are obvious business advantages to this business model. Replacing one Doctor with multiple low-cost staff. Allows for more hair transplants to be performed daily, weekly and monthly. For instance, like a production line. Having the ability to perform multiply hair transplant simultaneously. As a result 20 plus hair transplant can be performed per day.  Compared to bespoke hair transplant clinics clinics. Offering a personal one on one service. Running a medical production line requires a streamlined approach. This includes protocols. With the emphasis on efficiency over bespoke quality.

Risks To Streamlining Surgical Hair Restoration

Unfortunately, not everyone is a good hair transplant candidate. Not everyone can achieve total hair restoration. Hair characteristics must be assessed. A consultation is designed to highlight areas of concern. This includes the candidate’s goals and expectations. Other aspects can be donor hair limitations, hairline design and progressive hair loss indicators. By streamlining the consultation process makes the procedure more efficient. But this pre-planned approach carries many risks. To the candidate. With short and long-term complications. For example, poor planning, hairline design and donor management. As well as permanent shock-loss, visible scarring and poor hair growth.


Hair restoration planning is vital. As well as personal. Often planning is a compromise between candidate and Doctor. To achieve the best result. The pros and cons are understood. For example, the consequences of progressive hair loss. The effects of over-harvesting the donor area. In one or multiple hair transplants. As well as age. The correct timing for a hair transplant. Consequently, planning can dictate short and longterm happiness.


Donor area care and management are often neglected. At the expense of wanting more hair. As a result, it often not until after the consequences are felt. Without the correct protocols, there are no guidelines to follow. No minimum standard to adhere to. Consequently, no medical or ethical boundaries to follow. Over-harvesting is a common consequence of this. Resulting in thinning and patchy hair growth. As well as obvious and visible scarring. The donor area is permanently impaired. An obvious impact when needing to treat progressive hair loss.


Design, artistic skill and planning. All vital requirements. Without the necessary protocols, hairlines can be made to high or low. Designs can not reflect the natural bone structure. As a result, leaving unnatural aesthetically incorrect hairlines and created. Low hair density coverage and unnatural hair angles are commonplace. Visible scarring from incorrect hair placement. Resulting in pitting or ridging to the skin. Often irreparable. Consequently, permanent visible damage.


One of the biggest dangers of bad hair transplant is visible scarring. As a result of inexperience and low standards. Scarring is permanent. Not always easy to hide. Consequently needs to be kept to a minimum. without the correct protocols, scarring can occur to the donor and recipient areas.

Doctor Performed Hair Transplants

A hair transplant procedure needs to be planned. Controlled by the Doctor. From start to finish. Normally, working with hair technicians. That aid the Doctor. Hair Technicians play an important role. As a result, need to be well-trained. Totally patient orientated.

A custom-refined hair transplant is an art and skill. Taking time and patience to perform. Also requires total dedication from the Doctor. As a result there is only one patient per day. With the Doctor at the centre and controlling the pace and procedures employed by their team of experienced hair technicians. Care is the priority over speed. Each Doctor will have their own set of protocols to work by.

Conultation If Hair Transplant Goes Wrong

The Doctor must perform certain aspects of the hair transplant. They have a medical and often legal duty to do so. For example, the medical consultation prior to the hair transplant. The time a candidate has to ask questions and to the Doctor. For instance, the hairline design and hair coverage. Also, short and long term planning concerns. as well as medical issues such as the use of medications and side effects. A common question is who does what. During the day of the hair transplant. An ethical Doctor and team will understand this is a big day. That each hair transplant is personal.


Often a compromise is involved. Between patient and Doctor. But neither should compromise on the quality of the result. A compromise may involve hairline design and position. The hair density or coverage. Or longer-term. Dealing with progressive hair loss.


Although FUT and FUE donor harvesting differs. Both require planning and skilled harvesting protocols. From planning the safe zone. To measuring the hair characteristics. Then the surgical skills to harvest the hair follicles. Not to damage the remaining hair or skin. To not over-harvested the donor area. Resulting in large scarring or miniaturised hair. Importantly to allow for a future hair transplant if necessary.


Correct graft care is performed under magnification. From extraction to trimming to graft placement. The Doctor extracts the hairs using loupes. Maintained in a holding solution. The grafts are cleaned under magnification. Then separated into natural hair groups. Before being placed in the recipient area. Again with the use of loupes.


The quality of expertise dictates how the hair looks and grows. Correct depth, angles and orientation of the hair. Including the correct distribution of follicles. For example single hairs along the hairline. Surgical skills to dense-pack.

How to achieve the best hair transplant result

The ability to perform a hair transplant to a high standard relies on a number of factors. Starting with educating the candidate. Agreeing on goals and planning. Choosing a suitable technique. Creating a natural look. How and by who a hair transplant is performed. With each person playing an important role. The Doctor medically, ethically and legally has responsibilities. Custom hair transplants are about refined results. Doctor performed surgical hair restoration. With a custom-designed hair transplant. The focus is on attention to detail. Not speed. Or the number of patients that day. Or trying to achieve unethical results. Due to unrealistic expectations and demands.

Choose carefully. A hair transplant is permanent. Poor results cannot easily be remedied. The difference in cost is not always due to location, or currency differences. But protocols, ethical and medical. As a result, hair transplant results can greatly vary. Try to undergo multiple consultations. Research thoroughly. Cross-check claims. As emotive and personal hair loss is. Try not to allow the heart to rule the head.
