For each photo, ask the name of the surgeon who performed the surgical procedure on the patient. This is important because in some chains and group practices, you may be presented with pictures of patients who underwent a procedure with a doctor who is no longer affiliated with the practice. Also, take note: Are the photos of patients with exposed hairlines or is the hair combed forward over the hairline? If the hairline is not visible in the photo, you will not be able to determine if the physician uses the latest medical technology and surgical hair restoration procedures. In close-up Before and After photos of hairlines with the hair combed back, you will be able to determine if the doctor used follicular units, which provides the most natural appearing hairline.
