Hair transplant procedure is a way of hair restoration for both men and women. During the initial consultation, the treatment provider will discuss all aspects of the procedure and may also present hair transplant before and after photographs to educate the patient about the potential effectiveness of this procedure.
MBody, a well-known plastic surgery and non-surgical aesthetic practice, provides hair transplant procedures to patients in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredricksburg, and surrounding locations.
What are Hair Transplant Before and After Photographs?
Before and after photographs in case of hair transplant procedure refer to a pair or group of pictures belonging to an earlier patient who has undergone the same procedure with satisfactory results. The pictures include images taken prior to the procedure and after the procedure at a stage when full effects of hair transplant have appeared.
The treatment provider will ensure that the pictures are obtained with the patient’s clear consent and presented before new patients in an appropriate manner. The identity of the patient may be maintained confidential. The sole motive behind this exercise is to use before and after photographs as a visual aid to help new patients make an informed decision.
This is realistic because of digital technology. Now patients can make the most informed and poignant decisions in the history of humankind. And this can be done without the patient having to leave home and occupy any of the surgeon’s time. Both parties save time and the anxiety is reduced sharply since the patient knows exactly what they are signing up for. Digital photos are so sharp they can help a patient all but predict the future. Digital technology has changed every organization on the planet and the medical one is none different.
When a new patient contemplates the possibility of receiving a hair transplant, it is natural for them to be a little anxious or uncertain about how far it may be help to restore their hair and how it may meet their overall aesthetic goals. Some patients may have adequate donor hair available to achieve a good re-growth, while others may only be candidates for limited re-growth.
In some cases, the treatment provider may recommend low level laser therapy in combination with FUE procedure to achieve more effective outcomes. In all such situations, the patient is in a better position to make the right decisions when they have access to hair transplant before and after photos.
Mbody, led by board certified plastic surgeons, receives patients from Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredricksburg, and nearby areas for hair transplant procedures.
Maintaining Reasonable Expectations
While FUE hair transplant technique is a very effective way to achieve thick and robust hair re-growth, it is still important that the patient should keep reasonable expectations. Each case is different, and results can vary. Secondly, it will take about one year before full results are established.
An experienced provider will prefer to show hair transplant before and after photos at the very first appointment so that the patient gets a complete understanding about what the procedure can or cannot do for them.
If the treatment provider has their own practice website or blog, they have an opportunity to present hair transplant before and after photos online. New patients can access the photos conveniently in the privacy and comfort of their home or office even before they have decided about seeking a personal hair transplant consultation.
