Join ISHRS World Hair Transplant Repair Day to help raise awareness against illicit hair transplants

November 11, 2024 | #Hairtransplantrepairday

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.

The ISSUES at A Glance

  • Vulnerable patients are lured by cheap prices and false advertising with misleading information.
  • Hair transplant procedures are performed illegally by unlicensed technicians.
  • Clinics that operate illegally create disfiguring hair transplants.
  • Improper surgery poses serious increased health risk with serious side effects.

  • The irreparable aesthetic results include permanent visible scarring, infection, thin patches of hair, poor growth, patches of bald spots, and hair depletion from over-harvested donor areas.
  • Patients are at risk of misdiagnosis and the performance of unnecessary surgery.
  • Unlicensed technicians may not be covered by malpractice insurance.
