Who is the Best Hair Transplant Doctors In The World?
This question has been posed to me the other day! When I asked the patient why, they pointed to their phone where I had saw something that I thought was not possible since nobody could be that vain, yet there it was: a doctor claiming “he is the best doctor in the world”! To the patients out there looking for a hair transplant let me assure there is NO such thing. That simple? YES, there is no such thing! There are great hair transplant doctors out there, each bringing their unique characteristics and approach to this field. If anybody claims that they are the best hair transplant doctor in the world, patients are encouraged to ask further questions:
Who bestowed them this title? What was the criteria for winning this title? Lastly, is he paying the source for this title?
Now back to reality, I highly recommend that if you are looking for a hair transplant procedure that you set enough time to shop around and see each doctor in person. After you saw them all, your gut will tell you who is the right doctor for YOU! Trust your gut!
In my book, a hair transplant doctor to be great, they have to be involved in every aspect of medical treatment for the hair transplant surgery, from the beginning to the end, i.e. harvesting, site making, trimming the grafts, plantation and post op care.
Patients are encouraged to shop around see what other doctors have to say but stay with those that focus on hair transplant and hair transplant only, this will ensure that the doctor is up par and fresh in his hair transplant knowledge. Dr. Kelemen believes that a patient will know in their gut when they found the right doctor for them!
Choosing the Best Hair Transplant Doctor
When researching potential hair transplant surgeons, you’ll want to consider these items:
Whether they specialize in hair restoration
How long they’ve been in practice.
- Patient reviews
How many hair transplant procedures they’ve performed?
What board certifications/credentials they have
Before/after pictures of actual patients
- What role do they play in the surgery? What do they do exactly?

Speaking of the best hair transplant…
Which hair transplant is best?
It really depends on you and your goals!! The current choices are: FUT, the traditional strip method or FUE via ARTAS robotic, manual motorized or manual punch. A true pro will not push you towards one but give you options since they should offer all the transplant methods! Other factors are: what type of hair you have, how is your donor area, have you had prior hair transplants! So, I encourage you to find a doctor that is passionate about hair transplant and not just going through the motions! Someone who lives and breathes hair transplant! With passion you will yield someone who lives no stone unturned to become the best in their field! We do exist but we are a rare breed!
