We should write "the book" on what is required before moving forward with a hair transplant procedure. The first part of the book should concentrate on the "proven" aspect of transplants and why they work. (Donor area, for example).
Second part of the book should deal with historical info, evolution, and current methods available. (FUE, FUT)
The third part should deal with the many things a patient can do to prep. From research to how to deal with cost, and maybe even what questions to ask during a consultation.
This is harder than I thought as there are too many variables to consider. I haven't even mentioned the subject of trust. How can a patient know if the doctor is trustworthy, ethical, honest, etc?.....
Most important is the research.....Reviewing results. It is about results after all.
Oh, last chapter should deal with preventive therapies.
