At Capital Clinic, we believe in excellence. Too often cosmetic surgery is complex to organise, laden with hidden costs or comes with little or no aftercare. We know our patients want a premium level of service from start to finish but at a price that is affordable. That’s why we organise everything right from the first consultation all the way through to your aftercare programme. Everything is tailored to your individual needs and with absolutely no hidden costs.
With over 20 years’ experience, our specialist team of surgeons can offer you the best and most natural looking results. We are of the opinion that hair transplantation is an art form and our surgeons go into each and every procedure with this in mind. Our patients are amazed at the level of hair density achieved by our surgeons.
The first step on your journey is getting in touch via our contact page or giving us a call. We will then arrange a consultation for you at our Glasgow or Harley Street clinic at a time that’s convenient to you. We pride ourselves on being straightforward and discreet. We do not believe in charging for consultations as we want our patients to be able to make the most informed decision without any financial obligation.
During your consultation, one of our consultants will provide you with all the information you need to make an informed decision and will design a specific plan tailored to your individual needs. We do not believe in high-pressure sales tactics and none of our consultants operate on a commission of referral fee basis. Not everyone is a suitable candidate for a hair transplant but our consultant will be able to quickly determine what method of treatment is best for you.
On the day of your procedure, our specialist team will put you at ease from start to finish. Before your procedure, the surgeon will give you a detailed breakdown of how long they expect the operation to last. This will be several hours so we normally suggest patients make arrangements to bring either a DVD or favourite box set prior to the procedure. Once your hair transplant is complete, our surgeon will show you the finished result. Your transplanted hair typically takes between 3-6 months to fully develop.
We have seen our patients been transformed after a procedure. Not just in physical appearance but in terms of confidence and general well-being.
FUE & FUT
At Capital, we offer the two most popular and effective methods of hair transplantation – FUE & FUT. It should be noted that FUT and FUE are not competing forms of hair transplantation but actually complimentary methods. During your consultation, we will assess which method you are most suited for and what will deliver the best, most natural-looking results.
Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) is a more advanced method of hair transplant. method of obtaining donor hair for transplantation. Instead of removing a strip of hair-bearing skin from the donor area with FUT, the hair is individually removed using a special punch tool ranging in diameter from 0.06-0.09mm. This method leaves no scar tissue and does make recovery quicker.
Hair is then meticulously implanted back into the balding area in a naturally occurring gradient to give the most natural look. Due to the inherent nature of the grafts being implanted, it does take more time to perform than FUT.
Both methods are performed using advanced microscopes and under local anaesthetic to minimise post-procedure recovery.
Although both methods are minimally invasive we would suggest you take a minimum of 3 days off after your procedure to allow time for the grafts to settle.
Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) is an older technique, which involves taking a strip of hair-bearing skin from the donor area, usually at the back of the head. Specialist technicians are then tasked with the skill of dissecting the strip to harvest the strongest and most dense hair follicles.
Our highly skilled surgeons ensure the donor area is seamlessly sutured to leave a thin scar, which even a hairdresser would struggle to detect. Once this has been carried out, our surgeon will carefully reconstruct your new hairline giving you a natural and denser look.
