Is hair transplant safe to do in unregulated countries?

There are some people who are willing to travel to unregulated countries to have their hair transplant surgery for a reduced cost. Unfortunately, you're lucky to get a good result in these unregulated environments Hair transplants involve a very important step, harvesting hair from the back of the head called the donor zone. There are many detailed factors involved in this step and if any details are not carried out correctly, the hair is wasted, will not grow back, and you will only be left with a scar. The presence of a medical doctor is the key ingredient to assure all steps are done properly and to prevent complications. However, many unregulated clinics are run by non-medical staff without any doctors present during the procedure, or with minimal doctor involvement, this is how they keep costs low. The skills required to perform a hair transplant takes years of surgical training and experience to develop. If any step is compromised, it will negatively affect the outcome of the hair transplant and may pose serious problems for the patient. Remember, whatever you pay for a bad transplant is way too much.
