Before I begin this blog, I know you’re probably thinking, what could I possibly have to say about hair transplants!
However, what those of you who have never met me or my Husband will know, is that we have more experience in hair loss than you’d think!
My Husband began losing his hair in his 20’s. It began with just thinning, but eventually he slowly lost the hair on the top of his head.
A member of his family had a hair transplant, but I asked him at the time if he’d want to do the same, and he said he wasn’t bothered. I think as time went on, that decision would’ve changed but we just didn’t have the opportunity.
Nowadays, he shaves it all off-even the bits that still grow! I couldn’t imagine him with hair now, and he’s happy with how he looks, but I do wonder if he’d heard about the FUE Procedure at the Harley Street Hair Clinic, he’d have made a different decision.
What is the FUE Procedure?
FUE-Follicular Unit Extraction, sometimes referred to as follicular unit transplantation, is the modern technique of hair restoration. FUE is a more advanced method of hair transplants than previous techniques like strip harvesting transplantation or FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation).
During an FUE transplant, a highly experienced doctor extracts hair follicles from the donor area, typically the back of the neck, using a specialised extraction instrument less than 1mm in diameter. Follicles are then transferred to the recipient area on your scalp and implanted using a powerful stereo microscope in groups of one to four hairs, just as they grow in nature.
This is a Minimally invasive,surgical procedure so you will remain fully conscious the whole time as only local anesthetic is required. Recovery time is short and the risk of complications is low.
After the procedure we will provide you with clear instructions on aftercare, as well as medication and topical treatments to give you the best result possible.
FUE differs from normal hair transplants in several ways. The first is that it is noticeable for not leaving any linear scars, or any noticeable changes (other than a renewed lease of life for your hair.)
Once you have undergone FUE, the results are permanent. While the initial transplanted hair will shed a few weeks after treatment, it will grow back strong and healthy.
How much does it cost?
The FUE hair transplant cost varies-but on the Harley Street Hair Clinic website there is plenty of information to work out how much it will cost you. Click HERE for the cost details.
