Clients who are undergoing HT procedure with an unprofessional clinic are more likely to get cheated by implanting less number of grafts vis a vis the committed number of hair grafts at the time of booking. In effect, client will have to pay for the hair grafts which were not actually implanted. Professionally-run Clinics would exhibit the extracted grafts to the client before implantation phase starts.
