FUE hair transplants: Are they permanent

By Alex

Hair transplants are a revolutionary hair restoration method that can completely transform the appearance of thinning and receding hair. The results leave you with natural and realistic looking results, but one question we get asked frequently is ‘will my hair transplant be permanent?’

Today we’re discussing if hair transplants are a permanent solution.

What is a hair transplant

A hair transplant is a treatment created for those with thinning or balding hair. The treatment is an advanced hair restoration procedure that restores a full head of natural looking hair.

There are different types of hair transplants but we only offer the advanced FUE hair transplant procedure. A follicular unit extraction (FUE) transplant is the most modern technique of hair transplant there is. It is the most non-invasive type of hair transplant that produces natural and realistic looking results.

How does a hair transplant work?

FUE hair transplants are highly skilled and at the Harley Street Hair Clinic, we only used experienced doctors to ensure you get the best results possible. Your doctor will extract hair from the donor area of the scalp (the area where the hair is fuller, usually at the back and sides of the head).

We use a specialised extraction instrument, which is no bigger than 1.0mm in diameter to remove the individual hair follicles. Once we have removed enough hair follicles they will be prepared by your doctor and are then ready to be transplanted to the recipient area (the area of the scalp where the hair is thinning or balding).

The next step is transplanting the hair follicles that have been removed. The hair follicles are transplanted by using a specialist micro surgical implanter.The hair grafts are inserted to the scalp at a precise angle and density to ensure they resemble a natural and realistic hair pattern.

What will my hair transplant results be like?

With the use of the revolutionary FUE hair transplant procedure we’re able to produce the most natural looking results possible. Your results will depend on your current hair loss and how much hair you have available in your donor area. Take a look at our patient gallery to see the results we have produced for our past clients.

Will my hair transplant results be permanent?

We often get asked about our hair transplant results and if they will be permanent, a lot of people worry that after having a hair transplant their hair will begin to fall out over a prolonged period of time.

Our FUE hair transplant are extremely long lasting and they’re one of the most successful hair loss treatments currently available.

It is normal for your hair to shed after a few weeks after having your FUE hair transplant, once this has happened your hair will grow in the transplanted areas after around 3-6 months and it will be much stronger and healthier.

The newly transplanted hair will continue to grow just as it did when it was in the donor area, and your new hair growth will be permanent. During your consultation out experts will confirm that you are a suitable candidate for a hair transplant and also assess your future hair loss, this will ensure your transplanted hair will look good in the future.

We will investigate your age, family history and hair loss type. We can then foresee any future hair loss on other areas of your scalp and design your transplant round this to ensure it looks great in the future.
