UK Hair Transplant Surgery – Methods Explained

Below we go in-depth on the difference between different hair transplant techniques including; FUT, FUE and the Gro Microsurgery or Micro-FUE hair transplant and why Tajmeel clinic is the most delicate hair implant technique in the UK.

Tajmeel clinic FUE

a special tool with a diameter of 0.85mm or less are used to extract hairs one by one from the donor area. This minimally invasive extraction is always performed by a Doctor from start to finish, ensuring consistency and high quality.

The follicles are extracted with a specialised tool designed to minimise damage to the hair follicle and surrounding scalp tissue in the donor site. Individual follicles are kept in a sodium chloride solution at a constant temperature to ensure optimum development and growth after placement. . Hair follicles are implanted using another specialised tool( single/mutiimplanters , that allows the Certified Doctor to precisely control depth, direction and angle of placement, giving you a natural result. There is also no need to create recipient holes in the treatment area . This allows the Doctor to obtain higher hair density when necessary.

Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT)

Follicular unit transplant (also called unit strip surgery) is one traditional hair transplant technique that is the most invasive treatment. FUT hair transplants are when a long thin strip of scalp is cut and removed, typically from lower down on the back of the head. The hair follicles are then divided into single units under a microscope. The scalp from where the strip was removed is then sewn back together. It is a cheaper form of hair replacement as the extraction phase is quicker than alternative techniques, however, it leaves a significant scar that can be seen under short hair and if you are prone to keloid scarring, it can cause a very noticeable scar post hair transplant where the strip of skin was removed.

Hair Transplant FAQ

Is a hair transplant painful?

The fue hair transplant technique is a minimally invasive procedure with no stitching required at all. During the surgery, the hair transplant surgeon provides pain medications and local anaesthesia making the experience very comfortable.

What age can I have a hair transplant?

Tajmeel clinic has many patients from 21up to 75 years of age opt for a hair transplant. It is important to note that everyone’s hair loss is unique and in earlier years the focus is usually on keeping the hair you have before we look at replacing what you have lost from your head.

Do you offer multiple hair restoration techniques?

Tajmeel clinic offer one hair transplant procedure FUE surgery. It is designed to reduce recovery from a hair transplant and ensure that the highest survival rate is reached for each individual hair. This hair transplant technique is well suited to a receding hairline, bald patches, hair thinning and is a safe procedure carried out by a doctor for the best results.

Stress can cause hair loss

True. Scientists have now identified some chemicals that are produced in the body during periods of stress, which can affect hair growth

Is Follicular Unit Transplantation permanent? Does it really work?

Transplanted hair behaves in a similar way to the hair where it was taken from. It will last a lifetime for most people or at least into old age when the procedure is done correctly. Sometimes in old age one may experience hair thinning throughout the donor area. If this happens then the transplanted hair will follow suit.

Does Follicular Unit Transplantation leave scars?

The art of a hair transplant is to conceal the scars. When performed by skilled surgeons, Follicular Unit Hair Transplants will only be detected by thorough expert medical examination. The donor site however will have a very fine scar completely hidden by your hair.

How does a hair transplant work?

The hair around the back and sides of the head is genetically programmed to grow for life. A hair transplant is a simple redistribution of this permanent hair to the thin and balding areas of the scalp.

Why am I losing my hair?

Hair loss has a range of causes and it is important to get an expert diagnosis in order to choose the right treatment for your specific condition. For example, male pattern baldness is caused by a hormone called DHT (Dihydrotestosterone), which damages the hair follicles on the top of the head, but doesn’t affect the hairs on the back and sides of the head. The same hormone causes female hair loss, but in a different pattern. Other causes of hair loss include stress, scalp conditions and some medications. For personalised hair loss advice, arrange a private consultation with Vinci Hair Clinic.

Will the hair grow naturally?

Absolutely. As we are using your own natural hair, it will continue growing at the same pace as the rest of your hair.

Will I have to shave my head for my hair transplant?

In an FUE hair transplant you are required to shave the donor area on the back and the sides of the head but in the majority of cases shaving the recipient areas is not necessary.

How long does it take for the hair to grow?

As the transplanted hair is in different phases from growth to dormant, regrowth is progressive and starts from approximately three months post-op. At the six month stage, hair growth has been active for three months and we would expect to see a good portion of the hair growing through. Nearly all regrowth is achieved from at around six months.

Will the transplanted hair really grow for the rest of my life?

Yes. The hair follicles we transplant from the donor area are genetically programmed to grow for the rest of your life. This doesn’t change when we transplant the hairs to the bald or thinning area.
