Risks


Illicit Clinics

When you’re comparing prices, for anything, + you see a price that is so glaringly lower than the others, don’t you ask: “What’s wrong with the cheap one?” The same is true in comparing costs for Hair Transplants! But, cheap hair clinics don’t want you thinking that. So, they ensure their ads look legitimate, that their sites look authentic + charm you with buzz words to lure you into choosing them. They make it seem that choosing them is a no-brainer, by claiming: “Hair Transplants aren’t surgery” (False) – “Guaranteed Results” (No surgery can be guaranteed) – “Unlimited Grafts” (How is that possible when there are a limited number of hairs on your head?)

So, the question is: if you choose a cheap clinic, to save money or for any other reason: Is It Worth The Risks?

Only you can answer that for you, but our Not-For-Profit + select, member doctors want to educate you on the hair transplant industry’s best practices + warn you of clinics where doctors do not perform surgeries, yet market themselves as legitimate. So, before you choose a cheap clinic, know that the money you save may cost you your health or even life!
