Hair Transplant Surgical Assistants should be aware that jail sentences are possible for doing surgery on patients without medical training even if the patients give consent. Making FUE incisions in the skin constitutes doing surgery as defined by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) in England.
Hair transplant patients are being lured to black market pirate clinics across the world, at an alarming rate. They are promised low prices and guaranteed results. Unfortunately, these ‘clinics’, where surgeries are performed by non-doctors with little or no training, are causing irreparable harm. ISHRS members warn consumers to do all necessary research prior to surgery and to find a doctor in which you can verify their credentials. Your safety and well-being are at risk if you don’t do your homework.
