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 baldness.
The Glasgow Clinic specialises in the most advanced FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) method and our distinguished team is widely recognised for producing world class results.
We can repair older hair transplants that 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 up to 18 months after your surgical procedure.
The Glasgow Clinic provides an exceptional FUE specialist
FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) 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 bald 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 overall the surgery normally takes four to 8 hours depending 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 significantly less invasive and the donor area recovery is considerably quicker.
FUE is the most advanced and an excellent technique that 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 substantialy 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 procedure involves taking hair roots from a piece of scalp removed from the donor area at the back and relocating them to the bald or thinning areas at the top of the patient’s head.
Local anaesthetic is applied to the donor area before taking a strip of scalp and individually separating all the follicular units.
A scar will remain but can be hidden under the patient’s hair if left longer.
