Is it unrealistic to hope that you will be the only hair transplant patient for the day? It's actually in your best interest to be a bit self-centered when looking for a clinic to do your hair transplant surgery. There are many advantages when a surgical staff is focused solely on you and it is possible to find clinics that will accommodate your request.
When you know that your doctor schedules only One Procedure per day, it is safe to assume that he and his staff are not overworked or overstressed. A well rested happy clinic that schedules one patient at a time is more focused on quality not quantity. A comfortable schedule results in a pleasant, peaceful and efficient surgery day.
Another advantage of a single surgery day is that the doctor will make the best decision for the patient every time. Because other patients are not vying for his attention the doctor can base every decision solely on what is best for you. Because the doctor doesn't have to shuffle between patients there won't be any compromises due to time constraints or emergencies.
Multiple hair transplants usually result in longer surgery times for every patient. More than one simultaneous surgery has several rippling effects, none of which are good for the patient. A longer surgery always means more discomfort and unnecessary downtime. As the staff shifts their attention from patient to patient, time is often wasted, leaving the patient waiting unnecessarily. If a complication arises during One Procedure it may affect another surgery by several hours. It is not uncommon to hear horror stories about patients waiting in a room by themselves for extended periods of time.
When surgery time is prolonged, local anesthesia must be re-administered. That means more shots, increased discomfort for the patient and the possibility of side effects that could have been avoided. The more anesthesia that is administered, the more likely post-operative swelling will occur. Local anesthesia, Epinephrine, has been known to restrict hair growth; therefore, it is best for the patient when the least amount of anesthesia is used. Fewer shots of local anesthesia also mean quicker healing and a better overall outcome.
When you are the only patient of the day, your surgery is much shorter. A single uninterrupted hair transplant surgery can last anywhere from 4 to 5 hours. With a short surgery, those delicate hair follicles spend less time on the table outside of the body. A speedy transplant means that each hair follicle will have a much better chance of not only surviving the surgery but thriving and growing permanently.
Finally, fewer surgeries mean less staff. It is easier for a doctor to maintain 4 to 5 really experienced highly skilled technicians than to juggle 15 people needed for a bigger workload. A larger number of technicians could result in varying skill levels and expertise which could result in inferior results.
