Should I Choose A Hair Transplant Surgeon Based On Celebrity Endorsements

Recommended Posts

I get this question every day. "____ went to ____ clinic and looks like a million bucks should I choose this clinic?" 9 times out of 10 the clinic is a commercial chain clinic with all advertising and marketing and no real result built reputation. What do you guys think?  I would love to hear the communities input.

Actually, I know a couple of celebs and politicians and etc..  Right now it is the other way around, I am telling them what to look out for.  But few folks, i know are going to docs that care and do things ethically.  No one wants to end up getting screwed or having issues later where doc goes mia and just passes you off to multiple assistants and etc.  

Celebs do play a big role though.  They are in the public limelight so if you see a bad transplant then you know the celeb got screwed.  In most cases, their agents know what to look for.  They do read up online when helping to pick a surgeon for their celeb employer.

No doubt some celebrities have excellent results. However, I am very weary of any celebrity endorsements. A celeb could have a hair transplant with Dr. X and endorse a different clinic. Patients should be doing their own research rather than relying on what some celebrity says just my opinion.

I would rate that particular clinic with high score if Celebs are some of the ex clients

I mean celebrities have  this constant pressure to look perfect and  paparazzi around them,  perfect artistic work should be done for those cameras. Moreover its health and safety wise, it gives you more peace of mind to know that famous faces have handed over their heads for the entire day to the same doctor :) so you feel like okay.... why not then ...

Well......Slow down.......Eventually, if you are good, you may seek out, or be approached by a celebrity.  What you do with the information, afterwards, depends on the results.  If no good, likely the doctor will not say a thing.  If the results are superb, you can bet he will promote it in some way.

There are practices out there that do celebrities all the time but keep it private.  Is that because the celebrity asked them to? Perhaps.

We all tend to be star struck from time to time by celebrities.  So I think the decision should come from the patient, based on the overall  results.  Look at tons of photos...of ALL patients before making a decision. Don't preclude yourself of not having a consultation, at least, by a doctor that worked on a celebrity just because of it.  He might just be superb at what he does.
