For decades surgical hair restoration has been a very specialized field. In order to perform truly state-of-the-art hair transplantation it takes a great deal of experience and an extremely well trained staff of assistants. With the advent of these so-called automated devices, industry is selling complete novices on the notion that incorporating hair transplantation into any cosmetic surgery practice is now possible with a simple turnkey solution.
Spencer Kobren and Joe Tillman give their perspective on the future of surgical hair restoration and provide their views on the direction of the field and how it effects prospective hair transplant patients.
Remember, even with the latest and greatest technology, the end result of any hair transplant is dependent on the skill and experience of the hair transplant surgeon and their staff. Do your homework and always check with The American Hair Loss Association or the IAHRS before considering consulting with any hair transplant clinic.
