I have been considering a hair transplant for some time now and after having recently moved to Austria, I decided to have a consultation in Vienna. I was told that the procedure, in my case, would require between 800-900 FU’s and that the total cost would be 7,300 euros. As I am new to this and have not had the opportunity to meet with any other clinics, wanted to know if this price is exorbitant or fair and what is the quality of the clinic’s work?
Also, I did not meet with the doctor during my consultation and was told that I would meet the doctor on the day of the procedure shortly before the transplant. Is this normal? I would have felt more comfortable speaking to the doctor during the consultation than a rep/sales person.
Many thanks for taking the time to answer this.
I personally believe that not meeting with a doctor and getting surgical recommendations from a consultant (AKA “salesman”) is just plain wrong! Ask yourself this question — why would you trust a salesman to diagnose you (which only a doctor can do) and accept his recommendation of a treatment plan? That’s ridiculous! Would you have heart surgery that way? If you can’t meet with the doctor before the day of surgery and get his opinion, I’d look elsewhere.
