Hair Transplant is a minimally invasive medical procedure to restore your crowning glory by transplanting healthy hair grafts onto your scalp to restore areas of hair loss. This procedure has evolved over the last few decades with better treatment options to reduce scarring and downtime as well as enhanced treatment protocols to promote healthier hair growth and retention of transplanted hair follicles. A hair transplant works by transplanting stronger hair follicles from the occiput area (back of the head) to the front or vertex (top of the head) because these hairs are generally more resistant to DHT and will continue to grow as if they are still at the back of the scalp.
FUE (follicular unit extraction) is a type of hair transplant procedure that involves extracting individual hair follicles from a donor part of the body, usually the sides and back of the head. These individual follicles are then implanted in the areas that are affected. Typically, with the men suffering from male pattern baldness this will be the classic horseshoe area.
During an FUE hair transplant, a highly experienced doctor extracts hair follicles from the donor area, typically the back of the neck, using a specialized extraction instrument less than 1mm in diameter. Follicles are then transferred to the recipient area on your scalp and implanted using a powerful stereo microscope in groups of one to four hairs, just as they grow in nature.
This is a minimally invasive procedure so you will remain fully conscious the whole time as only a local anaesthetic is required. Recovery time is short and the risk of complications is low. The doctor, using specialist microsurgical needles, then punctures the scalp area that is to receive the grafts. Our doctors are experts at blending the hair in, inserting the grafts at an angle and density that matches the original hair, so it will resemble a natural and realistic hair pattern.
