HAIR TRANSPLANTS

FUE Hair Transplant Procedure

The FUE (“Follicular Unit Excision”) hair transplant procedure is one of the most sought-after for men. Groups of individual, healthy hair follicles, known as “grafts,” are extracted from the back of the head and relocated into the area of hair that is thinning or bald. As many as 3000 grafts can be extracted and relocated during the procedure. This method allows faster healing and less scaring.

Before surgery starts, the surgeon will discuss your desired results, draw out the new layout of your hair and explain the procedure by talking you through the process and the possible expectations.

Firstly, is to clean and shave what is known as the donor area which is at the back of the head from the top of the ear line going downwards. After the patient receives a local anesthetic, the surgeon will remove hair grafts, one by one, using a specialised follicle extraction machine ranging from point 0.85mm to point 1.15mm punches. A sterile dressing will be placed over the donor area, allowing the small holes to heal. This needs to be left on for 24 hrs.

After harvesting, each graft is checked and selected into categories according to whether the graft is made up of one, two or three individual hairs. These are then planted into the prepared recipient area. Depending on how many grafts are required the extraction phase is usually between one to three hours long.

During the procedure, the surgeon will make tiny incisions into the agreed area with a small needle and will individually align each hair graft into it. This will be done according to the patient’s unique hair arrangement so that the result is as natural as possible. The surgeon will also take into account other factors, such as the consistency and angle of the hair. This phase can take from 1 to 4 hours, and is reliant on the amount of grafts that need to be relocated.

FUT Hair Transplant Procedure

The FUT (“Follicular Unit Transplantation”) hair transplant procedure is The FUT (“Follicular Unit Transplantation”) hair transplant procedure is another popular choice for patients with thinning or bald hair loss patterns. In contrast to the FUE Hair Transplant Procedure, a thin band of hair is extracted from either the back or the sides of the head, and then transplanted to the problem area.

Before surgery starts, the surgeon will discuss your desired results, draw out the new layout of your hair and explain the procedure by talking you through the process and the possible expectations.

The extraction of the donor band from either the sides or the back of the head. Following this procedure, the small resulting incision will be stitched together with a trichophytic closure – this means that the patient will be left with a small, inconspicuous scar that can be hidden by hair longer than 1cm. This type of closure also means that hair can grow through the scar, which will further add to its inconspicuousness.

The extracted donor area is treated under a microscope, so that it can be classified into grafts of between one and three individual hairs. Once this preparation and selection is done, the grafts are then planted into the recipient area. This will be done according to the patient’s unique hair arrangement so that the result is as natural as possible.

The surgeon will also take into account other factors, such as the consistency and angle of the hair. This phase can take from one to four hours, and is reliant on the amount of grafts that need to be relocated.

Beardy

Beard Transplant

One in two males have trouble growing a full beard or sideburns. The beard transplant procedure can eliminate the appearance of bald patches, building a healthy beard that can be maintained and shaped as the patient wishes afterwards. Due to genetics, and despite an excellent care routine and healthy eating, some men still find it difficult to grow and maintain a beard, goatee or sideburns. Our beard restoration procedure can change the look and structure of the face, making it appear more shaped and helping the patient achieve a neater look even when shaved.

The supply of hair is normally taken using both the FUE and the FUT method depending on how dense you would like your beard and how much area you wish covered would depend on your donor area and this would have to be discussed with the surgeon.

EyelashBrow

Eyebrows & Eyelashes Transplant

Eyebrows are one of the key aspects of our faces that are a key indicator of youth. Our eyebrows naturally grow sparser with age, and thin and hairless eyebrows do often age both men and women up considerably.

An eyebrow transplant procedure can replenish lost hairs and give your eyebrows that youthful, thick and natural-looking appearance. And this does not mean that you have to have full, bushy brows – you and your surgeon can decide the resulting shape and hair thickness. The transplant is easy and you will immediately notice you’re more youthful and radiant appearance – as will other people too. You will need between 400 to 500 grafts per brow depending on the out-come of your consultation with the expert. The hair is taken using either FUE or FUT method, however FUT is the preferred method as no shaving of the head is required.

Eyelash transplant is very similar to that of the eyebrow transplant where hair is typically taken from the back of the scalp and selected into single hairs to be planted into the eye lid. The procedure involves about 60 to 70 hairs per eye this is normally done under local anesthetic. The direction and angle of each individual hair is carefully done one by one to ensure natural looking results. This gives density and length to the eyelashes. Maintenance of the eyelashes after surgery will be important. Surgery itself is between 4 to 6 hours.

HairyChest

Chest Hair Transplant

One in two males have no chest hair, Due to genetics, this can be done however the density will not be a great as the area being covered is a lot larger then a bald patch on the scalp, noticeably body hair are single hairs and therefore the splitting of the hair grafts and planting the hairs in the desired area will give some coverage to your chest.

However those with hairy chests and lack donor hair on their scalp may wish to take hair from their chest and plant it into the scalp area. these hairs are different from normal scalp hair so would really only be used to add density to the scalp or beard. Discuss these options with the surgeon on your consultation day.

pube

Pubic hair transplant

Is Pubic hair back in fashion? Some say it is. Interestingly, more and more ladies and even men are wishing to get their pubic hair back after having them lasered off. Some people due to ethnicity have hardly any hair on their bodies.

With this technique you can have any desired pattern round your bits.

Once again this is something to take up with the consultant and the surgeon.
