Although using technicians in hair transplants is internationally acceptable but all critical steps during the procedures should be still performed by surgeons only according to the codes of ethics of ABHRS and ISHRS. One of those steps are graft extractions.
It is because donor hair is limited. If graft extractions is done by inexperienced technicians who don’t truly understand hair’s character and direction, donor hair could be damaged or cut during this step. It means that we can’t use those damaged graft for hair transplants anymore. On top of that, donor hair should be extracted evenly to make sure there will be no bald spot left after surgery. Also, it shouldn’t be extracted so many grafts that the donor area looks thinning. This is the reason why experienced surgeons play an important role in graft extractions.
As hair grafts are very small. It requires special attention to details for graft extractions. 10% transection rate is still acceptable as general standard while, At HAIRSMITH CLIIC, our transection rate is about 1-3% due to our expertise and tools we use. So, you can rest assured that take care of every single hair specially.
“There’re many clinics performing surgeries by non-surgeons out there. Patients need to work harder on doing researches before making decision to make sure you will get services that comply with ABHRS and ISHRS standards.”
If you only consider cheap prices and ignore the standard, quality and responsibility, It might become expensive later when the result isn’t up to what you expect.
