Your hair is major part of your personality. When you experience extreme hair thinning it is very distressing because it dampens confidence in ones looks. Hair Transplant is the only permanent solution for hair loss. This gives you a natural looking hairline. The transplanted hair grows like natural hair and does not require special care.
Follicular Unit Extraction Surgery
This innovative method of hair transplant takes individual hair follicles from the nape of the neck (donor area) and transplants them into the area of thinning/ baldness. Follicles are implanted at a very specific angle which gives the transplant the best chance of success. The whole process takes place under local anaesthetic. This option is preferred by those who are concerned about visible scarring that can be encountered with other methods, by those clients who intend to have very short hairstyles
Duration:Time taken for the procedure will vary widely depending on the area to be treated and hair density.
Results:Results are visible immediately; however the full effect will not be achieved until approximately 6 to12 months after the transplant.
Follicular Unit Strip Surgery
This technique of surgical hair transplant involves removing strips of hair instead of individual hair follicles, from donor areas at the back or sides of the head. The surgeon then removes the individual hair units (comprising of 1-3 hairs) and implants these individually into the area of thinning or baldness. The incisions that the surgeon uses to implant the hairs are very tiny; sometimes compared to pin pricks, this leads to a very natural looking hairline.
Duration:The procedure takes place under local anaesthetic. From start to finish, it normally lasts between 4-7 hours depending on the area to be treated.
Results:Results are visible immediately; however the full effect will not be achieved until approximately 6 -12 months after the transplant.
