ISHRS HostED Its First World Hair Transplant Repair Day to help raise awareness against illicit hair transplants
Since its inception on November 11, 2021, members from the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery (ISHRS) and members of an ISHRS Global Council Society assisted patients that have been a victim of hair transplants gone wrong from illicit clinics throughout the world. Hair transplant surgeons in various countries corrected problems that have occurred with the objective of increasing awareness about the art and skill of hair transplantation.
When performed by a qualified physician, a hair transplant is an excellent procedure for treating hair loss. However, many clinics operate illegally and fraudulently without proper knowledge or training, placing unaware patients at risk and jeopardizing patient outcomes.
