Follicular Unit Transplant
For high standard hair transplantation is the Follicular Unit Transplant FUT, in this hair restoration surgery involves the strip method. These hair implants are from a follicular unit dense strip of tissue which is removed from a patient’s scalp (usually the back/sides of the head), the individual hair grafts are then prepared using stereomicroscopy.
One of the benefits of strip surgery is that greater amounts of hair follicles can be achieved over Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE), making this the more economical hair transplant procedure without a compromise on quality least of all results.
Follicular Unit Extraction
One of the most innovative treatments in hair replacement therapy is the Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE). This method of extraction requires our skill hair transplant doctors removing hair follicles from a patient’s donor area (typically back/sides of the head) individually one at a time and implanting them into the bald/recipient areas, creating a full head of hair.
The main benefit of carrying out this procedure is that it does not leave a singular linear hair transplant scar. The FUE hair transplant is also considered to be the least invasive hair transplant procedure.
The cost of a hair transplant varies from one patient to another and is in most cases impossible to determine without a consultation with one of our specialists.
To accurately determine the true cost of a hair transplant we first need to determine if this form of treatment is the most appropriate in your circumstance. We then need to assess the extent of your thinning/loss, the size of the area that requires treatment and determine which method of hair transplant is preferred or most advantageous. Only then will we be able to definitively offer a cost for the treatment. Analogy: You would not expect a carpet fitter to give you a price to supply and fit carpet for your hall, stairs and landing without first needing to measure up. The same principle applies to hair restoration.
A hair transplant works by redistributing hair follicles. A hair follicle is a cell that produces a keratin fibre that manifests itself and individual hairs above the surface of the skin/scalp.
A hair transplant relocates these hair follicles intact, allowing for them to resume a normal anagen growth cycle in the new location and subsequently when transplanted in there hundreds/thousands eliminate balding/thinning in areas of the scalp.
A hair transplant is a minor surgical procedure that involves the safe and efficient transfer/relocation of hair-producing follicles from a donor area (typically the hair at the back and sides of the head) to a thinning/bald area that concerns the patient i.e. hairline, crown, etc.
A hair transplant is a minor non-invasive surgical procedure that involves the safe removal of hair follicles from an area of abundant hair on the scalp (typically the back and side) and transfers them to a location on the scalp of sparse/nil hair coverage.
It is important to be aware that both FUE and FUT are hair transplant methods of extraction only. FUE involves removing hair follicles from the donor area, each hair follicle individually. FUT involves removing a narrow linear strip of hair follicle-rich scalp in its entirety and dissecting it down to individual follicles. The process of transferring the hair follicles to the recipient area is identical. Myth: FUE is scarless.
No. A hair transplant is not a painful procedure. The most discomfort you as a patient should feel is the first few injections of local anaesthetic. Once the initial injections of local anaesthetic take effect all subsequent injections of local anaesthetic and the procedure will be perfectly comfortable. The most you will be aware of is light pressure.
Not everybody is suitable for a hair transplant. There are many factors that must be taken into consideration to determine this, to list a few: hair characteristics, the extent of hair thinning/loss, size of your head, amount of hair you wish to regain/reclaim, the amount of hair you have to use, etc.
The most accurate way to determine your suitability and the options that exist for you specifically is to attend a FREE expert consultation with one of our specialists who can accurately assess your situation and advise you honestly.
A typical hair transplant result begins to emerge at approximately 3-4 months when the hair follicles enter into a new Anagen growth phase. The appearance of thickness and fullness will continue to develop with the final results of the hair transplant being manifested at between 12-18 months.
The International Society of Hair Restoration Surgeons is an organisation established to represent the leading Hair Transplant Surgeons throughout the world. When seeking a surgeon to perform your hair transplant you should check to see if the surgeon is registered with the ISHRS. If your chosen surgeon is registered you can be assured they are an expert in the field of hair restoration and that you are in safe hands.
Male Pattern Baldness is the thinning of hair on the scalp caused by a genetic deterioration of the cells responsible for producing hair known as hair follicles by the hormone DHT (dihydrotestosterone). DHT is responsible for a process known as follicular miniaturisation that causes the hair follicle to contract/shrink. As the hair follicle miniaturise the hairs produced by the hair follicle begin to thin, the number of hairs produced reduces and eventually the hair follicle ceases to produce hair at all, resulting in baldness.
