Why Hair Transplant Virtual Consultations Are Important

1/3/2020 8:52:33 PM

We're now entering a new decade, as we say goodbye to the 2010s and hello to the 2020s, we look forward to technological innovations. The internet has made society accustomed to convenience and information with the click of a button or a finger-swipe. Men and women who are interested in having a hair transplant no longer have to uncomfortably walk into a surgeon's office and have those awkward moments in the lobby. In this article, we will be explaining why virtual consultations are essential and where to submit free virtual consults online.

Virtual Consultations Allow You To Consult With Surgeons Worldwide 

The most significant benefit of submitting online consults is the ability to consult with several surgeons at once, anywhere in the world. Sending your pictures online to a large pool of surgeons can also give you a sense of how many grafts you may need to reach your goals. 

Another benefit of meeting with surgeons online 'virtually' is the fact that there are no additional costs to you the patient. Some surgeons charge in-person consultation fees for their time and the visit- this is an acceptable practice in the hair transplant industry, as the surgeons may write prescriptions as well.

Where Can You Submit Virtual Consultations With Pre-Screened Surgeons?

The Hair Transplant Network has been around for over 20 years recommending hair restoration physicians that are selected carefully through the collective wisdom of thousands of actual hair transplant patients. The physicians accepted by the Hair Transplant Network are chosen based on their patient results, merit, and reputation, as opposed to commercial hype. Submit consultations with over 45 surgeons online for free. 

Conclusion

While submitting online consultations are a convenient and easy way to get expert opinions about hair loss and treatments, there are times when you may need to see a surgeon in person. Furthermore, the quality of the pictures can impact the opinion of the surgeon. Some patients are rejected based on photos alone. In these instances, it is essential to visit a few surgeons to rule out diffused unpatterned alopecia (DUPA), which may disqualify patients from having surgery.
