why choose hair transplant surgery?
For some men, a rapidly receding hairline can be a cause of great distress, affecting how they feel about themselves and even impacting on relationships or work due to loss of confidence. Often they feel it makes them look older than they are. It’s essential to know that there is a permanent solution to hair loss that can make you feel younger, more dynamic and ready to face any of life’s challenges.
Follicular Unit Extraction, or FUE, has become the gold standard of hair restoration surgery. First, healthy hair follicles are removed from a donor area, typically the back of the scalp where hair is more plentiful and likely to remain resistant to further hair loss. These follicles are then painstakingly grafted to areas of hair loss and thinning.
The procedure is performed under local anaesthetic, reducing the risks of a general anaesthetic. There is no cutting of strips of hair follicles, as was previously performed in a procedure called Follicle Unit Transfer or FUT, so there is little chance of visible scarring once the donor area heals.
The FUE procedure is very comfortable and most patients feel able to return to work and normal activities the following day. Healing takes approximately a week, after which there should be no signs of redness or swelling.
Immediately after treatment, you’ll be able to see the results of your FUE procedure and over the next 12 months, your transplanted hair will have fully regrown.
Under a high-powered microscope, our hair restoration expert uses specially-designed instruments to extract individual follicle units and then precisely implant each hair follicle unit to ensure minimal trauma to the scalp and the optimal survival rate for the transplanted hair follicles.
With little visible scarring post-procedure and the most natural results possible, our hair restoration patients find they can wear their hair really short if desired.
Our hair restoration expert combines a wealth of experience and an artistic eye to produce truly natural-looking results by following your natural pattern of hair growth. By using his own custom-made blades, he can produce a much higher density of grafts while at the same time minimising any visible signs of the FUE procedure in the donor area.
