All the information you need about Hair Transplants
Many of us take our hair for granted, not truly knowing the upset it can cause when you notice your hair thinning out or your hairline receding. There are a variety of products and supplements out there that can help to restore thicker looking locks but if the hair has been lost then often the damage has already been done. In these cases, a hair transplant is usually the treatment of choice for many men. Hair transplant procedures are consistently growing in popularity and we have put together a source of all the information you need to know before making the decision to proceed.
What is a hair transplant?
A hair transplant is a surgical procedure designed to restore hair into areas on the scalp that are thinning or receding. Donor hair is taken from the back of the head and reinserted into the areas that are being treated. There are a few different types of hair transplant procedures, FUE and FUT being the most common techniques.
FUT otherwise known as Follicular Unit Transplantation or strip harvesting involves taking a strip of hair from the back of the scalp which is then cut and divided into separate hair follicles which are then inserted back into the scalp into the areas being treated.
FUE or Follicular Unit Extraction hair transplant procedures require the surgeon to make multiple small entry points using a specialised punch device into the back of the scalp to take hair follicles directly from the donor area. The follicles are then prepared and placed back into the areas being treated.
At The Private Clinic, we have been perfecting our FUE technique over the past 10 years and we are able to achieve the most natural results. Many patients are put off by the risk of being left with a long linear scar at the back of the hair following a FUT transplant and for this reason, more and more patients come to us for FUE.

Hair Transplant UK Reviews
“I had an FUE hair transplant a week ago today and I cannot thank the team enough. The whole process was effortless and the team took really good care of me. My procedure was with Dr Tam who explained the procedure in detail and really put me at ease. The procedure it’s self was a surprise as it was completely painless, I was expecting some discomfort but I was wrong. To be honest I could have fallen asleep that’s how relaxed I was. I’ve already had visible growth in my new hairline which myself and Dr Tam spent time designing. I can’t wait to see the full and final results. For anyone looking at having this procedure, I would highly recommend the private clinic. It’s definitely one of the best decisions I’ve made, after years of covering up my hairline I am finally going to get my confidence back. Massive thanks to Dr Tam who has undoubtedly changed my life. Thanks to his team who helped with the procedure although I’m sorry that I cannot remember your names. Also thanks to Louisa and Nabeel who have communicated and supported me through my procedure.”
The best thing about having my FUE hair transplant at the private clinic in Harley Street was the friendliness and professionalism of the staff. From the first consultation to the procedure itself they give you the best care possible and genuinely care about their work. They set you at ease immediately which makes everything run smoothly. I would like to thank Henry, Umar, Bev and of course Dr Reddy for the way they treated me. I could have not chosen a better option. Thanks to the team and for anyone in 2 minds about a procedure, go for it … this team is the best.
After looking at plenty of clinics for a hair transplant I settled on The Private Clinic in Leeds after reading the great reviews. From the initial consultation with Dr Mouzakis, Sorena and Nabeel to the day of my transplant the team have been superb. The surgery was practically painless and I am very happy with my new hairline, all the team were constantly ensuring I was ok and were very professional. The aftercare I have received has been great and I’ve had phone call already to check how I am. I like also like knowing that I can phone at any time if I need any advice.

Why Choose The Private Clinic for a Hair Transplant Procedure?
- You will be treated by highly experienced Doctors. Our Hair Transplant surgeons are highly skilled in FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) and treat hundreds of patients every year.
- FUE is a minimally invasive treatment (meaning there is no cutting of a strip), and carried out under local anaesthetic – many patients either watch TV, or even fall asleep during the procedure.
- You won’t require any stitches after your treatment. This means that the recovery time is also reduced when compared to the Strip surgery (FUT).
- We use the finest instruments, resulting in as minimal trauma to your scalp as possible.
- Thanks to our advanced skills and techniques, our team ensure that the donor looks intact after the hair transplant procedure and you can keep your hair really short if you prefer without any obvious scarring.
- Following treatment, there will be no linear scarring across the back of your head as seen with the strip method (FUT) – you’ll be free to wear your hair long or short.
- We choose the best follicular unit (a group of hairs), this ensures that only the strongest, healthiest grafts are used for your hair transplant procedure. See our Hair Transplant videos here.
- Your results will look natural, with denser packing – the hair is implanted in the direction that matches your hair growth.
- We are one of the very few clinics able to offer the Unshaven Hair Transplant (U-FUE) (the long-hair hair transplant), to those who prefer not to shave beforehand. At your consultation, we will be able to advise you on whether an unshaven procedure is suitable for you.
- Scars resulting from injuries or previous surgeries can also be corrected. In fact 30% of all patients that come to us have been somewhere before and need further work to improve on a disappointing result. This could be a previous bad hair transplant or we can cover linear scars caused from FUT hair transplants.
- We treat Afro-Caribbean hair loss, as well as eyebrows, beard and facial hair. In addition, due to the knowledge and precision of our team, we can utilise body hair in hair transplants if you have a lack of suitable donor hairs on your scalp.
