which 7 steps do you go through?
Hair Clinic Wolf is happy to provide insight into the process of our treatment techniques. On this page you will find an explanation of the consultation to the control moments.
During the consultation you will discuss your wishes and the treatment with your advisor. This can be done by telephone, at our office in Kaatsheuvel or at a location of your choice. There are some important questions you may want to ask your advisor, such as: Is it realistic what I want to achieve with the treatment? And: Will I have any scars from the treatment?
The specialist will, among other things, consider the best surgical approach to the problem you have with your hair and youw wishes and concerns.
As the approach to your care may change, it is important that you inform your advisor of any previous treatments, medications and your medical situation.
When all the necessary data has been registered and you have had an initial conversation, pictures are taken from five different perspectives. All photos we take of our customers are for internal use only. We only share the photos with the medical team in Istanbul. After this, a summary of the interview with your advisor and the photos taken will be sent to the Turkish hair transplant specialist for assessment.
The Turkish hair transplant specialist determines whether your donor area and the structure of your hair are suitable for a hair transplant. Analyzes are also made of the areas where new hairs will be implanted. In addition, an estimate will be made of the number of grafts that will be transplanted. The anticipated outcome and any changes will be discussed with you.
