Hair transplants have great success in the restoration of the natural hairline and can stop hair loss altogether.
There are two surgical procedures that can be used. The first takes small groupings of healthy hair from your head and transplants them into the area of hair loss. After a few months the hair will begin to grow as normal. The second involves taking individual hair follicles and dissecting them under magnification. Fine incisions are then made in the scalp and each follicle is planted in the area of loss.
Both procedures can be performed under local anaesthesia.
How long does a hair transplant procedure take?
A hair transplant can take several hours to a full day depending on the hair graft required to cover the area of hair loss.
How many hair grafts are needed?
This will depend on the size of the graft required and also how much suitable donor hair is available.
Where will the hair be taken from?
Generally hair is taken from the side and back - depending on how much hair and the quality of hair the patient and, or donor hair has.
Does hair look natural after a hair transplant?
With an increased density of hair follicles hair will appear more natural.
When will I see final results?
Hair follicle growth happens within 4 months, a visible hairline should appear at 6 months and full hair growth should appear by 12 months.
