Every day, disfiguring hair transplants are fraudulently performed by
untrained and unlicensed personnel across the world
ISHRS Hosts First World Hair Transplant Repair Day to help raise awareness against illicit hair transplants
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 adverting with misleading information.
- Hair transplant procedures are performed by unlicensed technicians.
- Clinics that operate illegally create disfiguring hair transplants.
- Improper surgery poses a serious health risk with serious side effects.
- The irreparable aesthetic results include permanent visible scarring, infection, thin patches of hair, patches of bald spots, and the over-harvesting of hair.
- Patients are at risk of misdiagnosis and the performance of unnecessary surgery.
- Unlicensed technicians may not be covered by malpractice insurance
