At Seneca, our patient’s safety and success are of utmost importance. With this as our top priority, we have attracted patients from all over the world and gained their trust through our procedures’ consistent and incomparable quality.

Hair transplantation is an innovative medical procedure that, when performed by certified physicians in the field, gives a permanent solution to hair loss. It improves not only the patient’s appearance but their self-confidence as well. By contrast, a failed hair transplant exaggerates the problem by only providing a temporary solution, at best. While the initial investment might seem quite low, the long-term effects of having to reinvest and the burden of frustration are far more detrimental to the patient’s overall well-being.

In each of our Seneca centres, hair transplants are performed exclusively by experienced and certified doctors trained at the Seneca Training & Research Centre, and under strict Seneca Quality Standardization Protocols. We believe that each and every hair transplant session worldwide should be performed by a doctor specifically trained and certified in hair restoration, no exceptions. Unfortunately, this standard is not upheld in most clinics and beauty centres, which claim to carry out similar sessions to ours, but with staff that do not have the experience or certification and, in some cases, have no medical background whatsoever. This misleading information is the primary cause for concern now for every potential client. Having seen so many botched results and heard so many horror stories, they aren’t sure who to trust, especially when everyone’s stories sound the same.

During the recent meeting of the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery (ISHRS) held in Las Vegas, the slogan and main topic were, in fact, this very need for hair transplants to no longer be performed by technicians or specialists, but only by doctors. We were thrilled to hear this, but curious as to why now? Why has it taken so long for this to become a mandatory standard in our industry?

What ISHRS is becoming aware of only now is not news at Seneca- only confirmation. This is a practice we established 15 years ago and have upheld ever since. We were the first medical organization worldwide to acknowledge the necessity for this procedure to be performed only by experienced doctors, specifically trained and certified in hair restoration, and to make this our standard.
