ARTICLE: 5 Things to Consider Before Seeing A Doctor for Your Hair Loss
5 Things to Consider Before Seeing A Doctor for Your Hair Loss? — You wouldn’t see an ophthalmologist for an earache, or visit a cardiologist for a sprained ankle – so why would you have anyone other than a Hair Restoration Physician treat your hair loss? A Hair Restoration Physician is someone who practices exclusively in the area of medical diagnosis, treatment, and tracking of hair loss and hair regrowth. While the field of dermatology is widely believed to be the specialty to treat all things skin, hair and nails, the reality is that most dermatologists prefer to be only skin experts. Medical doctors who do not specialize in hair restoration may not be up to date on the latest treatment methods and technologies. This can lead to subpar results and, in some cases, treatment complications.
Are They Qualified to Perform a Hair Transplant? — Most patients don’t realize that anyone with a medical license is legally allowed to perform a hair transplant. This can incredibly dangerous, many of these professionals don’t have the experience or the necessary combination of skill and artistic ability to recreate natural looking hairlines. Just as with other medical fields, hair restoration has credentialing, so patients should ALWAYS look for physicians who are certified in hair restoration by the American Board of Hair Restoration Surgery, accepted members of the International Alliance of Hair Restoration Surgeons, and recommended by the American long-distance phone consultation OR an in-person, in-office consultation with Dr. Bauman. You can also Ask Dr. Bauman a Question or simply call Bauman Medical Group toll-free 844-GET-HAIR or +1-561-394-0024.
