Looking into any type of cosmetic procedure can be quite confusing, the internet is full of information – some which can be quite misleading. We like to ensure our clients, and potential clients have all of the information they need before visiting us at the clinic.
Something we’re often asked is how successful is a hair transplant, so today we’re telling you exactly what you can expect.
An FUE hair transplant is a modern method of hair transplantation. FUE, which is also known as follicular unit extraction is an advanced technology that works towards giving you the most natural look hair transplant possible.
During an FUE hair transplant at the Harley Street Hair Clinic, one of our highly skilled doctors will extract hair follicles from the back and side of the scalp – this area is called the donor area. This is done with the use of a specialist extraction instrument the hair follicles are then prepared under a microscope.
Once the hair follicles are prepared they are then transferred to an area of the scalp with little to no hair – this area is called the recipient area. The hair follicles are placed in the scalp at an angle and density to mimic your natural growth pattern, this results in a natural and realistic looking transplant.
A hair transplant is the most successful and permanent method of hair restoration treatment. FUE hair transplants are extremely long lasting, once you have had your hair transplant you’ll notice that your hair will shed after a few weeks – this is a normal part of the procedure and the hair will grow back strong and healthy.
Your hair will begin to grow in the transplanted areas and you’ll start to see your new head of hair after around 3-6 months of growth. The transplanted hair will continue to grow, just as it did in the donor area as it will hold the same characteristics as it had before the transplant. With this in mind, your new transplanted hair will grow just as it did pre-transplant.
During your personalised consultation, our experts will ensure you’re a suitable candidate for a successful hair transplant. During the consultation, our team will investigate your age, family history and hair loss type. This will help us foresee any future hair loss on any other areas of the scalp and we can then design your hair transplant around this to ensure that is not only successful but still looks natural in years to come.
