What to expect from your hair transplantation consultation?

When you schedule a consultation to discuss getting your hair transplants at Northwestern Hair, what kind of experience should you expect from our team?

This inquiry is a question we get from many people looking to get a transplant. To give you an extensive idea of what to expect during your time at our Chicago-based clinic, we’ve provided you with all the information you might need to address all your questions and concerns.

When it comes to getting the best hair transplant results possible, a consultation with one of our hair transplant physicians is something that you absolutely can’t afford to miss. From scheduling your first consultation to receiving comprehensive post-operative instructions and follow-up treatments, here’s what you can expect from our team of professionals.

Board-Certified Doctors

When you consult us, you’ll notice that you’re meeting with a board-certified physician who specializes in hair restoration surgery during your consultation. We understand that you’re not looking for a salesperson or technician the first time you walk in through our door, so we make sure your first point of contact is someone who really can help. A specialist doctor will examine you and determine whether or not you are a good candidate for the procedure. In addition, we’ll discuss with you what to expect during surgery and recovery and discuss any concerns or questions you may have about the procedure itself or post-operative care.

Standard Diagnostic Tools

We’ll use standard diagnostic tools to help determine whether you’re a good candidate for hair restoration surgery during your consultation. Along with other evaluation methods, we examine your hair follicles under a microscope to identify the cause of your hair loss. Whether the hair loss is from miniaturization from testosterone or follicular fallout from stress, you’re going to see just what we do so that you can make clinical decisions for yourself.

Full Hair Evaluation

To ensure we get a comprehensive examination before your procedure, we’re also going to look around your head for areas where you don’t have hair loss for evidence of future hair loss. This process helps us plan more effectively to determine the number of grafts we need to save so you can always have a natural result, even with subsequent procedures in the future.

Procedure and Pricing Recommendation

We’ll provide you with the best treatment recommendation to meet your unique needs and the pricing available for the procedure. We also encourage you to meet with other hair transplant teams and specialists and even recommend other excellent doctors you can meet around the city.


Overall, our team of doctors at Northwestern Hair is focused on getting you the best hair loss treatment possible and will assist you in picking the team that is best for you, even if it’s not our team. That’s the kind of experience we deliver at Northwestern Hair and the level of quality you can expect during your consultation process.
