The Hair Loss Problem
Up to 50% of men will have experienced some degree of hair loss by the time they reach 50. And for many, hair loss will occur far earlier whilst they are in their 20s, 30s or even late teens.
The main cause for 95% men experiencing a thinning scalp is something called Androgenetic Alopecia – more commonly referred to as Male Pattern Baldness. The hereditary condition occurs when a male hormone causes certain hair follicles to shrink and produce abnormal hair with a shorter life.
In Male Pattern Baldness, the first area patients typically see hair loss in is the crown, followed by thinning around the hairline and temples, before the mid-anterior scalp is affected. However, patients all have different experiences of the condition and some may see varying patterns depending on their case.
Other causes of hair loss in men include stress, disease, and physical reactions to medication, though your case is individual to you. Hair loss is always about much more than a receding hair line. It can deeply affect an individual’s confidence and self esteem, and we believe that’s the most important thing to address.
While hair loss is in its early stages, it is recommended to seek advice from one of our highly renowned Trichologists who will be able to assess and diagnose the extent of your hair loss and recommend further action. Supplements, products and medication may be an effective way to manage and prevent hair loss (read about our hair loss medication). However, once balding has occurred and the hair is permanently lost, hair transplantation is the only effective way to treat the area.
The FUE Hair Transplant Procedure
FUE or Follicular Unit Extraction, involves removing healthy hair follicles directly from a donor area on the scalp (usually at the back of the head where the hair is plentiful) and grafting them onto the bald or thinning areas.
The treatment is carried out under local rather than general anaesthetic, eliminating risks and downtime associated with other hair transplant procedures. And, because the treatment is minimally invasive, there is no detectable scarring and, in most cases, patients are able to return to work the next day with their results.
The method uses a specialised punch device, ranging in diameter from 0.6mm – 0.9mm, to extract follicular units complete with neccessary glands. This seperates surrounding tissue from the unit, meaning minimum trauma and better results, as well as minimal risk of any detectable scarring. Transplantation of all the vital elements of each hair follicle means a better survival rate and better growth. The treatment is performed under a high powered microscope using specialy designed instruments, allowing the surgeon to work with the upmost precision for natural-looking, undetectable results.
- You will be treated by highly experienced Doctors. Our Hair Transplant surgeons are specialised in FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) and treat hundreds of patients every year.
- FUE is a minimally invasive treatment, carried out under local anaesthetic – many patients either watch TV, or even fall asleep during the procedure.
- Unlike the Strip (FUT) 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.
- We use the finest instruments, resulting in as minimal trauma to your scalp as possible.
- Thanks to our advanced skills and techniques, results can be undetectable.
- Following treatment, you won’t have any linear scarring across the back of your head – you’ll be free to wear your hair long or short.
- We work by hair, not per graft – this ensures that only the strongest, healthiest follicles are selected for your transplant procedure.
- Your results will look natural, with denser packing – the hair is implanted in the direction that matches your hair growth, and because we select healthy follicles, the treated area will look densely filled.
- Our surgeons are the only surgeons in the UK offering the Unshaven Hair Transplant (U-FUE) 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.
Our specialist hair transplant surgeons – Dr. Raghu Reddy and Dr. Kouremada Zioga in London Harley Street, Dr. Mark Tam in Leeds and Bristol, Dr. Michail Mouzakis in Birmingham, Northampton and Dr. Vikas Kunnure in Manchester and Glasgow offer the most advanced, minimally invasive Hair Transplant techniques available today – leaving no visible scarring or linear scar at the back of the head. You can wear your hair however you want after your procedure and get back to your daily life as quickly as possible with minimal fuss and discomfort.
We are one of the very few clinics able to offer Unshaven procedures, and 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.
You will be able to see the outline of your new hair line immediately after treatment. The transplanted hair will have re-grown fully approximately 12 months later.*
Recovery / Downtime
You can leave the clinic immediately after treatment. Healing takes approximately 5-7 days, after which point any redness or slight swelling in the treatment area will have subsided.
How much does it cost? Every individual’s needs are different, meaning we treat all our patients on a case-by-case basis. Because of this we can only give an accurate Hair Transplant cost quote following your consultation and scalp assessment. We work by hair, not by graft – this is the only way to ensure that we only transplant the strongest and healthiest follicles and offer you the best results possible.
On average, we price by the number of hairs you require and charge approximately £2.50 per hair for standard FUE(follicular unit extraction) procedures in London. The Pricing structure for FUE hair transplant at our Leeds, Bristol, Glasgow, Manchester and Birmingham clinics is slightly different – please contact us for more information.
We offer FREE consultations with our highly experienced Patient Advisors who are able to offer you all the information you require prior to meeting a surgeon. A consultation with one of our renowned Hair Transplant Surgeons is £100.
“I would like to express my thanks to all the staff of Leeds Private Clinic of Harley Street who recently looked after me during my hair follicle graft transplant. My hair loss had been slow and over a gradual period of time until one day I decided to speak to the Private Clinic to see what I could do. At my consultation I was encouraged by Dr Tam who explained what was needed and how easy the procedure was.
On arrival for my appointment on the day of the procedure, everything was set up waiting for my arrival and after the introduction and information greeting, the full process of the day was explained to me. I would like to extend my appreciation to Sorena Ali the patient coordinator for all her advice and assistance and to Dr Tam and his team of hair technicians Stan & Anne Ereev, Martin Niedzwiedz and Nabeel Farooq who were so professional, patient and gave dedicated attention to every detail, continuously explaining the process throughout the transplant and giving full consideration to patient care.
And for those who are wondering. No it doesn’t hurt it’s just a little uncomfortable in the beginning. I even found myself falling asleep on a couple of occasions”David, Leeds - Jan, 2017
“It has been just over five months since I had my hair transplant procedure done by yourself, and I wanted to take this opportunity to express my gratitude to your team, for the fantastic work you all did. The results have far exceeded my expectations, and I now have a fuller head of hair than I previously had.
I believe this to be one of the best decisions I have ever made and would highly recommend yourself and your team to anyone that was considering this procedure.
I would just like to say thank you for the professional service I received from yourself and your team from the first consultation to the completed procedure.”Kevin, London - Jan, 2016
“Here I am on day 4 (getting bored) after my FUE of c6000 hairs. I have no redness and cannot see any evidence of any work in the donor area at all other than it looks a tiny bit think under magnification. There is some crusting (tiny brown dots) in the recipient area but no scabs – but I can see literally thousands of tiny hairs – like a 2 day beard and it already looks cool compared to before.
The experience of the surgery was nothing like I expected. It was like I spent two days with my friends and I will actually miss the team who performed the surgery. We had a great time – The team were exceptional and incredibly attentive and just plain friendly. I am so so glad I chose Dr Reddy and his team – even though the cost was much higher than all the other surgeons I met I would never ever change my mind and have no regrets.
We had such a good laugh throughout and there were no issues whatsoever. Despite the incredible skill of the team there were so down to earth and modest – there was none of the arrogance you see from some surgeons. Just a regular bunch of people but with incredible skills.
Lisa and David were also phenomenal in giving support and responding to emails so quickly and efficiently.”
S.S., London - December, 2016
“I felt in safe hands, everyone at the clinic was really nice and helpful. I felt like the whole experience of the transplant went better then I thought, especially pain wise. The whole thing was done quicker then I imagined and I left feeling happy.”
“To the wonderful team @ TPC! Pain-free, relaxing, fun & amazing. No, this wasn’t a vacation but the thoughts and memories will be with me much longer. I didn’t expect such an incredible process. The team is so reassuring and true professionals.”Steve, London - September 2016
