Can I meet previous patients?
Yes and we encourage you to research the limitations and possibilities of hair transplantation and can support you in making the correct decisions for you. Please register for our open days when we can arrange for you to meet with previous patients to examine the quality of our work.
What is Donor Management?
The donor hair available to patients during a lifetime is limited and we have to make the correct choice to ensure we select the best strategy to make sure the donor hair is used wisely over a patient’s lifespan. This is crucial to ensure patients gain the best result possible and be educated regarding the potential for future hair loss.
How much does a FUE Procedure Cost?
The cost of the procedure depends on the number of grafts and the complexity of the area to be transplanted. All costs quoted include check-ups and post-operative medications. Repair cases are complex and a speciality at the clinic. Due to the challenging nature of corrective surgery we have to examine patients in detail before providing a cost estimate.
Where is the Procedure Performed?
The Procedure is performed at our clinic where, as a private hospital, we have full access to an in-house pharmacy and onsite testing facilities.
Do you offer Finance Facilities?
Yes we can provide 12 month interest free credit agreements via our finance partner. Please ask for further details at your consultation.
Do I have to cut my hair short?
In certain cases we can transplant without cutting the hair short depending on the number of grafts required. However, in the majority of cases we do cut the hair short to gain the maximum quality grafts possible.
Am I a suitable candidate?
We always advise arranging a personal consultation as there are many variables to investigate including your age, family history of hair loss, and type of hair loss. These factors determine your overall suitability for treatment.
How many procedures do I need?
The number of procedures required depends on your goals, your present level of hair loss and how this changes in the future. The majority of patients require 2 procedures in their lifetime.
How long before I see the results
The transplanted hair will begin to shed at 3-6 weeks post procedure and will then take a further 2-4 months to start re-growing. At around the 6 month stage we expect the regrowth to be at the half way stage and the final result is achieved at 12-14 months. The progress can vary and we recommend you attend the 6 month check up to review progress.
Will the results be natural?
We have a strict protocol that ensures we only have doctors completing the placement to ensure the naturalness of the final result. The FUE hair transplant procedure requires excellent surgical skills and natural artistic flair and we encourage you to view our gallery to see how we achieve the natural results which are the hallmark of a great hair transplant.
Can I get a full head of hair again?
A hair transplant cannot replace the natural density of a full head of hair but using surgical planning and artistic placement we can maximise the appearance of natural density and volume.
Are there any risks to my health in having a FUE PROCEDURE?
The FUE procedure is a very safe and minimally invasive procedure under local anaesthetic. There are very few potential health risks and, as with any surgical procedure, we take full medical precautions including ECG tests at the clinic for patients aged over 45.
What is Shock loss?
Shock loss is the loss of pre-existing or transplanted hair due to the trauma of a surgical procedure. The incidences of shock loss are rare and any hair loss caused is temporary and normal growth returns after a period of 1-3 months. Shock loss is a potential side effect of transplantation and is minimised by the expertise of our vastly experienced medical team.
