Before the consultation, take some time to read about our hair transplant techniques in our website so you have an idea about what to expect from your consultation. Consider bringing a partner, friend, or family member with you for support. It is also important that his patients have an idea of what they are looking to accomplish. Are you looking to increase density throughout the scalp, lower your hairline, fill in the crown, or repair prior surgery?
