How do I Choose the Best Hair Transplant Surgeon?
surgery seems to be the answer for you, it is in your best interest to seek the best hair transplant surgeon
Shop carefully, the same as you would if you were purchasing a new car or a
You would not buy the first house you see, would you? So do not make a decision to do hair
transplant surgery with only meeting one hair transplant physician. There are multiple philosophies
about hair transplants (further explanation to follow), become educated about them and make an
informed decision so you can choose the best hair transplant surgeon for you.
Do not shop price, because in many instances you will get what you pay
This holds true for any cosmetic surgical procedure, pick the best hair transplant surgeon not the
- How much hair is really being moved during a hair transplant?
The question that needs to be asked to any hair transplant physician
you consult with regarding a hair transplant procedure is how much hair is going to be moved?
There are numerous amounts of sales techniques that are being used by hair transplant consultants and
doctors. The most common one is by the number of
grafts. This to me is very deceiving, because a graft could have only one hair in it, or
it could have multiple hairs in it. So if a consultant or doctor tells you he is going to give you
1000 grafts, what does that tell you? The answer is nothing. They could give you all one
hair grafts. What you want to know is how large is the size of the donor strip that is being
harvested. This tells you in much greater detail about the amount of hair being moved.
When I do my largest size case on someone, I move approximately 30-35 cm (11.81 inches by 13.78 inches)
in length and approximately 1- 1.4 cm (.39 inches by .54 inches) in width. This will vary from
patient to patient based on their individual head circumference and elasticity of their scalp.
This amount could yield up to 8000 hairs based on your own unique characteristics. If I can get
more, I will; it just depends on the circumstances and you never know for certain until you do the hair
transplant procedure. This is the “truth in lending” of the hair transplant industry, how big is
the strip (the area being harvested)? Do not be deceived, ask the right questions and then you can
make an informed decision so that you will insure that you have chosen the best hair transplant surgeon.
Go to a Hair Replacements Specialist
There are a number of physicians that are performing hair transplants, although, this may not be
there specialty. Would you go to a drugstore to purchase tools for your home, or would you go to a
hardware store? Yes, you may find some tools at the local drugstore, but are you going to get the
best tools with the most knowledgeable staff informing you on the tools there? The answer is
obvious; you need to go to a specialist in the industry. When you go to a hair transplant
specialist, that is all that they do, they do not do anything else in that office. This means that
all of the staff only performs hair transplant surgery
. This is super
important, because hair transplant surgery is performed by a team; and the final results are not
only based on the performance of the physician, but on the whole surgical team.

I started loosing my hair about 5 years ago and I had to do something about it. FUE was the method that I thought would be the best(so called scarless.not true,you get a lot of small scars).To be fair the doctor I picked did as good job as FUE could offer but the method does not give you enough hair,one year later I have had another FUE procedure... view more
Very personable and professional. My discussion with Dr. Brett Bolton was both friendly and informative and through my research and experience believe him to be the best in his field. His staff was also very professional and friendly and I would highly recommend him to anyone considering a hair transplant!
Expectations were well communicated. Premeeting was truly consultative. All my questions were answered. From there they were a class act. Highly recommend going with Josh's lodging arrangement. I give them five stars.
I had a H.T. with Dr. Brett Bolton about 18 mths ago and had a really great experience there- very happy with the results, especially with his ability to help conceal/blend a terrible, previous HT surgery I had with another doctor 20 years ago. It was such a difference, just wish I had gone to him the first time around. I'm getting ready to... view more
I visited dr. Bolton like many about my concerns about my thinning hair. I visited other hair restoration, but felt the most comfortable with Dr. Brett Bolton, josh and his professional staff.

I had been experiencing hair loss for the past 10 years, my mid Twenties. I had been in denial of this fact, and family and friends, trying to be nice I guess, would confirm I was "crazy, you're not going bald!". I had researched hair transplants for years, and even had consultations with local hair doctors in my area.; Including the doctor who... view more

From the moment I walked into Dr. Brett Bolton's office, I had a good feeling. Meeting with Josh and Dr. Brett Bolton for the first time only reinforced this feeling. They both gave me their undivided attention and answered all my questions. I was at a low point in my life as far as self-confidence due to my hair loss (which had seemingly sped up... view more

I had dreaded the surgery for years, but I knew it was necessary if I wanted to repair my personal appearance. I saw two different surgeons before choosing Dr. Brett Bolton. Price was never the issue, I just wanted to chose a doctor that I felt understood my personal needs, and one that would be able to execute that result. I felt comfortable with... view more

I had a wonderful experience my worries were put to ease by Dr. Brett Bolton and his staff!
I had my first procedure with Dr.Bolton's associate Dr.Huebner 5 months ago. I'm incredibly happy with my results so far. I can't believe how natural my hairline and density look so early.
