Hair Transplant Procedure
Our specialist team will put you at ease from the very beginning. Before your procedure, the surgeon supplies you with a comprehensive breakdown of how long they expect the surgery to last. So we normally advise patients to make arrangements to bring in a favourite box set or something similar prior to the procedure this may be several hours. Our surgeon will fully describe the dos and don’ts as soon as your hair transplant is done. Your transplanted hair typically takes between 3 months to start developing.
We’ve seen our patients transformation following a Hair Replacement operation, not only in physical appearance but in confidence and general well being.
Types Of Treatment – FUE & FUT
At Capital Clinic, we favour the two most popular and effective methods of hair transplant – FUE & FUT. It should be mentioned that FUT and FUE are not competing types of hair transplantation, but in-fact complimentary methods. Throughout your consultation, we’ll evaluate which procedure you’re most suited for and what’s going to produce the best, most natural- looking results.
Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) is a more advanced approach to obtaining donor hair for transplant. Instead of removing a strip of hair-bearing skin from the donor region as with FUT, the hair is individually removed utilising a distinctive punch tool varying in diameter from 0.06 – 0.09mm. This technique does make healing faster and makes no scar tissue.
Hair is then meticulously planted back into the balding area in a naturally occurring gradient to provide the most natural appearance. Because of the inherent temperament of the grafts being extracted, it does take more time to perform than FUT.
Both procedures are performed using state-of-the-art microscopes and under local anaesthetic to minimise post-procedure recovery.
We propose you take 3 days off following your surgery to allow time for the grafts to settle, although both procedures are minimally invasive.
Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) is an older technique, including taking a strip of hair-bearing skin from the donor region, usually in the rear of the head. Specialist technicians are subsequently tasked with dissecting the strip, being cautious not to damage the most robust and most dense hair roots.
Our highly skilled surgeons ensure the donor area is sutured to leave a narrow scar, which a hairdresser would strain to detect. Our surgeon will carefully reconstruct your new hairline giving you once this has been carried out, a look that is natural and dense. It should be mentioned that regardless of what procedure you chose, the result will look the same, as the grafts are planted the exact same way. It is only the extraction technique that is different.
