Anytime you undergo any surgery, including a cosmetic surgery you want to make sure that everything is being done so that you get the best results with no mistakes. Many hair transplant doctors will try to make more money by having you be one of many patients in a particular day, but this is not in your best interest and leaves room for mistakes.
There are transplant clinics that will work on only one patient per day, or two at the most. These are the clinics you want to focus on during your research period before committing to a hair transplant. It's actually in your best interest to be a bit self-centered when looking for a clinic to do your hair transplant surgery. There are many advantages when a surgical staff is focused solely on you and it is possible to find clinics that will accommodate your request.
When you know that your hair surgeon schedules only One Procedure per day, it is safe to assume that he and his staff are not overworked or overstressed. A well-rested happy clinic that schedules one patient at a time is more focused on quality not quantity. A comfortable schedule results in a pleasant, peaceful and successful surgery day.
Another advantage of a single surgery day is that the surgeon will make the best decision for the
patient every time. Because other patients are not vying for his attention the hair surgeon can base
every decision solely on what is best for you. On your surgery day, it should be all about you. When you
are the only patient the doctor works on in a day, then he doesn't have to shuffle between patients
there won't be any compromises due to time constraints, emergencies or distractions.
The problem with being one of many patients in a day is multiple hair transplants usually result in longer surgery times for every patient. More than one simultaneous surgery has several rippling effects, none of which are good for the patient. A longer surgery always means more discomfort and unnecessary downtime. As the staff shifts their attention from patient to patient, time is often wasted, leaving the patient waiting unnecessarily. If a complication arises during One Procedure it may affect another surgery by several hours. It is not uncommon to hear horror stories about patients waiting in a room by themselves for extended periods of time.
When surgery time is prolonged, local anesthesia must be re-administered. That means more shots,
increased discomfort for the patient and the possibility of side effects that could have been avoided.
The more anesthesia that is administered, the more likely post-operative swelling will occur. Local
anesthesia, Epinephrine, has been known to restrict hair growth; therefore, it is best for the patient
when the least amount of anesthesia is used. Fewer shots of local anesthesia also mean quicker healing
and a better overall outcome. You can avoid being one of these horror stories or experiencing this type
of discomfort if you make sure your hair surgeon makes your surgery all about you!
When you are the only patient of the day, your surgery is much shorter. A single uninterrupted hair transplant surgery can last anywhere from 4 to 5 hours. With a short surgery, those delicate hair follicles spend less time on the table outside of the body. A speedy transplant means that each hair follicle will have a much better chance of not only surviving the surgery, but also thriving and growing permanently.
Finally, fewer surgeries mean less staff. It is easier for a doctor to maintain 4 to 5 really
experienced highly skilled technicians than to juggle 15 people needed for a bigger workload. A larger
number of technicians could result in varying skill levels and expertise that could result in inferior
