Hair transplantation is a minor surgical technique that guarantees the restoration of your own head of natural hair.
It is the only method that overcomes hair loss and provides a solution for both male and female pattern hair loss.
The Glasgow Clinic specialises in the most advanced FUE method and our team is widely recognised for producing exceptionally natural results.
We can repair older hair transplants that were – or have become – cosmetically unappealing with our advanced hair restoration technology and one or two operations can give a natural looking head of hair.
It will take approximately four months for new hair to start growing. The natural hair will continue to mature in colour and body for 12 to 18 months after your surgical procedure.
The Glasgow Clinic provides an exceptional FUE specialist
FUE is the latest development in advanced hair transplant techniques where a small precise round punch is used to extract follicular units from a patient’s DHT resistant donor area.
The follicular units are cherry picked for greater density and the grafts are then transplanted into the patient’s treatment area. The hairs are then placed in the direction and angle of the hair growth to form a natural looking hairline and realistic look.
The FUE extraction procedure is more time consuming than FUT and the length of surgery depends on the number of grafts transferred. Larger procedures are generally carried out over two days.
The cost per graft of the FUE procedure can be more expensive in comparison to FUT surgery, but the technique is significantly less invasive and the donor area recovery is considerably quicker.
FUE is the most recent development in hair restoration techniques and should be considered by all patients, but especially those who may in future want to wear their hair short or cropped.
The overall result is your own hair performing naturally as it did before and only you and the people you choose to tell need ever know about your treatment.
The procedure is relatively painless and involves only a little discomfort when applying the anaesthetic.
FUE is less invasive than FUT surgery
FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation) is an older and substantially more invasive form of hair transplant surgery. Although we choose not to offer it here in Glasgow, it’s still widely available throughout the UK.
The FUT procedure involves removing an entire piece of scalp from the donor area at the back of the head, trimming this into individual hair grafts, and planting them into the thinning areas at the top of the patient’s head. The planting step of this procedure is the same as for FUE.
Local anaesthetic is applied to the donor area before taking a strip of scalp and individually separating all the follicular units.
A linear scar will remain in the donor area, but this can usually be hidden under the patient’s hair if left a little longer.
