Hair Transplant Procedure
Our specialist team will put you at ease from the very start. Before your procedure, the surgeon provides you with a detailed breakdown of how long they expect the operation to carry out. This might be several hours so we usually advise patients to make arrangements to bring in a favourite box set or something similar prior to the procedure. Our surgeon will fully describe the dos and don’ts as soon as your hair transplant is done. Your transplanted hair normally takes between 3 months to begin developing.
We’ve seen our patients transformation following a Hair Replacement procedure, not just in physical appearance but in self-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 must be noted that FUE and FUT aren’t competing forms of hair transplantation, but truly complimentary methods. Throughout your consultation, we’ll evaluate which approach you’re most eligible for and what’s going to deliver the very best, most natural- looking results.
Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) is a more advanced method of obtaining donor hair for transplant. Instead of removing a strip of hair-bearing skin from the donor area as with FUT, the hair is separately removed utilising a distinctive punch tool varying in diameter from 0.06 – 0.09mm. This technique does make healing faster and leaves no scar tissue.
Hair is then meticulously planted back into the balding area in a naturally occurring gradient to give the most natural appearance. Due to the constitutional temperament of the grafts being extracted, it does take additional 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 suggest you take 3 days off after your surgery to allow time for the grafts to settle although both procedures are minimally invasive.
Specialist technicians are then tasked with dissecting the strip, being careful not to damage the strongest and most dense hair roots.
Our highly skilled surgeons ensure the donor area is sutured to leave a narrow scar, which even a hairdresser would strain to discover. Our surgeon will carefully rebuild your new hairline giving you a look that’s natural and dense once this has been carried out. It ought to be noted that regardless of what procedure you selected, the final result will look the same, as the grafts are implanted the very same way. It is only the extraction technique that’s not the same.
