It’s a brand new year and it’s time to set those new goals and challenges for 2017. The term ‘New year, new me’ rings out every 1st January, and this year you have the chance to really make that happen.
If you’ve been thinking about getting an FUE Hair Transplant for a while, what better way to start the year than by taking the next step in your transplant journey. To help you on your way, we’ve put together a few tips on what you should think carefully about before taking that final step and booking your procedure.
Get a full consultation at Crown Clinic
Before you can go ahead and book, it’s important to visit a clinic for a free consultation. Consultations are designed to give you all the information you may need to make a final decision. It also allows us to figure out which procedure is best for you and your desired results and to also gauge whether you are eligible.
Carefully consider the different transplant options
Depending on the results you want and how long you have for recovery, it’s always best to look at every single option available. For example, FUE Hair Transplants are best suited to those who like to wear their hair short, as there is very minimal scarring.
What risks are involved
With any surgical procedure, there are always risks to take into account. When attending your consultation, make sure you ask what kinds of risks are involved, what is common and what’s uncommon. This can help you even further when deciding whether a transplant is right for you.
What final results are you looking for?
It’s important to be realistic with the results you are aiming to achieve. When you go for your consultation, the surgeon will be able to talk you through the procedure and what kind of results you can expect to see over time.

How much recovery time can you carve out for yourself
Giving yourself enough time to recover is incredibly important. Even though FUE Hair Transplants can allow you to be back on your feet within a couple of days, it’s best to allow yourself at least a week to sit back and relax. Any surgical procedure can be taxing and it’s not only the affected area that needs rest, take some time off work and get plenty of rest.
Make sure you can book enough time off work in advance, so you don’t have to worry about rushing back into the office after your transplant.
To be able to make a well informed decision, it’s important to make sure you are fully prepared. Glean any information you can from your consultation and do some extra research on the internet, reading about other people's experiences. All of this information will not only help you choose which procedure will give you the best results, but also prepare you for the recovery process, allowing your hair transplant to deliver the results you’ve always wanted.
