Regain Your Confidence with an Affordable Hair Transplant
A hair transplant could be just what you need to regain your confidence—and your zest for life.
In most cases, the transplant hair follicles are taken from the bottom of the head, near the neck.
They’re then transplanted in the balding area of the head and given time to grow naturally.
Performed in sterile conditions by highly professional doctors, hair transplants are usually
carried out under a local anesthetic. And when the procedure is successful, the newly transplanted hair is indistinguishable from naturally occurring hair.
The Two Most Common Types of Hair Transplants
There are two types of hair transplants performed by our clinical partners around the world. We
can discuss both—and which one is most appropriate for you—during our initial consultation.
Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT)
This type of hair transplant involves the use of a strip of skin taken from the back of the patient’s
scalp. FUT requires the surgeon to remove a large enough strip to cover the number of follicles
required to cover the patient’s bald patch.
The surgeon must then individually remove the hair follicles from the skin strip before re-
inserting them into the balding scalp. The average skin strip required to perform this cosmetic
procedure is around a centimeter wide. The entire procedure takes between four and eight
hours to complete.
In most cases, the FUT procedure involves these steps:
● The desired hairline is drawn onto the scalp
● Hair at the donor site is trimmed
● A strip of skin is cut from the donor site
● The hair follicles are removed from the strip and prepared for reinsertion
● The skin at the donor site is closed with sutures
● The hair follicles are re-inserted into the bald area of the scalp, one by one
● Antibiotics are administered, and the treated areas of the scalp are bandaged to prevent
Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)
Follicular unit extraction involves the removal of individual hair follicles from the skin before
transferring them to thinning areas of the scalp. Over the years, this type of hair transplant has
become more popular than FUT, thanks to the most consistent and natural results it delivers.
Individual hair follicles are removed directly from the patient using a series of ‘micropunches’.
Unlike FUT, this method leaves no visible signs of surgery.
The FUE procedure involves the following steps:
● The clinical team shaves down both the donor and transplant sites
● The surgeon uses a ‘micropunch’ utensil in order to extract individual follicles
● The surgeon then creates a series of incisions in which the extracted follicles will be
● The follicles are inserted into the incisions, one by one
● The surgeon completes the procedure by cleaning the treated area and applying
bandages where necessary
Which Type of Hair Transplant Is Right for Me?
There are advantages to both types of hair transplantation technique, although FUE is more
● The healing process is faster
● There’s less pain after surgery
● There’s no significant scarring
● Hair can be taken from any part of the body
● Hair can be taken from areas of low follicle density
FUT procedures tend to be cheaper and quicker, and they’re more practical if the patient has a
large area of scalp to cover.
What to Expect After a Hair Transplant
Your clinician will tell you how to care for your hair and wound (if you have FUT) during a post-operative review. The doctor may provide you with a special shampoo, antibacterial medication, and bandaging. You will need to carefully clean and re-dress your scalp for seven to 10 days
after the procedure.
Possible side effects to look out for include:
● Irregularly patterned hair
● Significant scarring
● Bumps and lumps
● Prolonged bleeding
● Persistent and intense pain
● Sores and cysts
