“It’s absolutely amazing. It amazes me now to think I nearly didn’t do it. I could not be happier with it.” *

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 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 cutting of strips) making very small entry points into the scalp our team ensure that the donar looks intact after the hair transplant procedure and you can keep your hair really short if you prefer without any obvious scarring. 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 necessary glands. This separates surrounding tissue from the unit, meaning minimum trauma and better results. 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 specially designed instruments, allowing the surgeon to work with the upmost precision for natural-looking, undetectable results.

Many patients worry about the results, and in the past hair transplants rarely looked natural. We have been perfecting our FUE technique over the past 10 years and we are able to achieve 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. See our extensive before and afters here.

  • 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(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.
  • 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, our team ensure that the donar looks intact after the hair transplant procedure and you can keep your hair really short if you prefer without any obvious scarring.
  • Following treatment, you won’t have any 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 work by hair, not per graft – this ensures that only the strongest, healthiest follicles are selected for your 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, 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) (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.

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 and NorthamptonMr Christopher D’Souza in Bristol and Manchester and Dr Nestor Demosthenous in Glasgow offer the most advanced, minimally invasive Hair Transplant techniques available today – the FUE leaves minimal scarring and in most cases is undetectable to the eye, unlike FUT which leaves a 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 (the long-hair hair transplant), 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.

Hair Transplant Results

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.* See our before and after gallery here.

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. See Doug’s Hair Transplant story here.

I recently underwent an FUE procedure with The Private Clinic. I first contacted The Private Clinic in early 2017 and had an initial consultation with Becki (patient advisor) who was so welcoming and we had an open discussion about my wants from FUE. It was a great initial meet, very professional, yet friendly. I was able to go away and just ask more questions when needed (always replied to too!). I then had a full consultation with Dr. Dr Thomai Kouremada-Zioga, who from the offset was very approachable, professional and above all honest about expectations. I was made to feel so comfortable by Dr. Zioga and at no point had I felt rushed nor sold to, just completely at ease and comfortable asking any questions and got a very clear overview of the procedure and walked away feeling positive.
I must also say, that being over 40 I was advised to have some blood checks and an ecg (that is very professional) and The Private Clinic were happy to arrange these for me, so it made things so simple for me, which was hugely appreciated (thanks Becki).
Prior to procedure day, I had constant contact and reminders, ensuring I was pre-procedure ready and having to provide photos (of dyed hair) showed a real pro approach to ensuring I was committed (which was a condition of Dr Zioga that I fully commit ).
Then came procedure day. well, I have honestly been blown away how comfortable I have been made to feel. I met with the rest of Dr Ziogas team (Katerina, Andriani and George) who were again, so professional yet very friendly . I was constantly looked after and at no point felt unsure, uncomfortable or that I couldn’t ask questions (even repeat the same questions). Everything was clearly shown to me, how the day would play out and that at no point were we under any time constraint and that the procedure going well was all that mattered. Such a relief to feel relaxed.
The actual procedure, was bizarrely quite relaxing! I fell asleep during the initial donor extraction and for a good part of the implant I think I may have snoozed again. I was so looked after and was provided with biscuits, lunch (2x sandwiches and chocolate bar), water and was constantly monitored.
Post the procedure, I was given a thorough overview of all the post-procedure stuff I had to do (I was given instructions + a goody bag with absolutely everything I needed). Katerina was so patient with me, as I’m fairly sure I had to go over things many times.
Once back home, I have continued to feel fully supported, by having to provide regular picture updates (with responses back) including week-end. This continues too, as I am still early in the process and am able to send updates, get feedback and more importantly ask any questions i feel i may have.
In summary, I don’t think I can do enough justice in a review, to detail how comfortable I have been made to feel, how professional The Private Clinic as a whole have been and continue to be and that my experience has gone way beyond what I could’ve imagined. I remain truly committed to the instructions given by Dr Zioga and team and can only send my hugest thanks for their great, caring professional work and should I require a second FUE (possible in 12 months for some minimal crown work) there is only one place/team I will be heading.
I must also say, that I have not experienced any discomfort post procedure, which of course I’m very pleased with and have not had any obvious issues. The constant 20 min sprays every day for about 4-5 days is tiresome but it must be done -)
TPC, Dr Zioga, Becki, Katerina, Andriani and George – please accept my hugest thanks, I have had a really pleasant experience right from the start. 10 out of 10!

* Trust Pilot 5 Stars

I had fue treatment at the clinic and from start to finish everything was great. I first met the patient co-ordinator Steven and he was really welcoming, reassuring and answered any questions I had and put my mind to rest. I then had a consultation with the surgeon Michael and we looked further into the detail of my specific case. He was a really nice guy and was honest and open about what I needed and the pros and cons and realistic about worst and best case scenarios. I decided to go ahead as I felt this was the right place for me. On the day of the surgery I met nabil and Monica the specialist nurses part of Michaels team. Again they were really genuinely nice people, making sure I was ok every step of the way and also along with Michael again answering any questions or concerns I had. The procedure went great and I couldn’t ask for more. From the receptionists to the surgeons everyone I found was professional yet approachable.

Hair Trans – Zioga – Outstanding!!!
I had a hair transplant in November with Dr Zioga. From start to finish TPC were outstanding.
On the day I was a little nervous and was made to feel comfortable so quickly due to the lovely nurses Katerina and Adriana. They made me feel very at ease in their hands. Throughout spending the day with them I got to know them better and better and they are just amazing, I was sad to have to leave them at the end of the day!
Dr Zioga is very warm, lovely and caring. She makes sure you are comfortable throughout the procedure and continually checks that you are. She did an outstanding job on the procedure and words cannot decide how pleased I am with it. Her skill and expertise is 1st class. Just brilliant!
After the surgery I kept in contact with Katerina everyday for a week or 2 just so she could give me advice and help with any questions. I ran out of Saline spray during this period and she rapidly got some for me and delivered the next day. Such a lovely touch.
I really cannot thank or recommend TPC so much for hair transplant surgery with Dr Zioga. I was very apprehensive before having a consultation after years of deliberating and I am very happy I did it

* Trust Pilot 5 Stars

I battled with the justification of this procedure for some years – both from a vanity & financial point of view, not to mention that I’m a devout coward where injections are concerned!!
In the end I took the plunge & I haven’t looked back. The whole team at Bristol were amazing & I must make mention of Dr Mark Tam who was nothing short of superb. The attention to detail is second to none & absolutely painless. In the days following, the only ‘slight’ discomfort was actually from the donor sites particularly when trying to sleep, but no medication required at all.
The one aspect that I did’t take into consideration during the planning was how difficult it would be to ‘hide’ the transplant area following the procedure & that did prove to be a little tricky for some time…
Early days yet, but the results are already pleasing & significant.
Would I have the procedure done again – absolutely, in a heartbeat!!

I am so happy with my results
It’s getting thicker each month and makes me look loads younger .

Comments from patients

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.

I would recommend Dr Mouzakis and the Leeds team to use for a hair transplant.

Sean, Leeds

I attended the Bristol Private Clinic in February to undergo a fue hair transplant. I had previously met my surgeon Mark Tam for a consultation which was arranged by the clinic co-ordinator Chantelle. I have spoken to Chantelle several times by phone and in person, she has always been very professional, friendly and reassuring.

Mark Tam was approachable, friendly and the ultimate professional, choosing to do the procedure in two parts due to an unavoidable staff sickness issue rather than rush it. I have waited until now to write this review as I wanted to see the results develop. I am delighted with my new hair growth and I am much more confident. I was avoiding many social situations before as I was constantly worried by my hair loss. The procedure has now given me my confidence back. I cannot thank Chantelle, Mark Tam and the team enough.

If you’re looking to get a hair transplant and wondering where to have it done, look no further. I had a FUE hair transplant with Dr Zioga at the Private Clinic of Harley Street 3 weeks ago. The entire experience from initial consultation, to the procedure day and follow-up care has been amazing.

At the initial consolation with Dr Zioga and Becki the patient advisor everything was explained in detail and I immediately felt confident that I was in the right place. Surgery day was nothing to worry about at all. I was honestly surprised by how comfortable I was during the procedure, almost dozing off at certain points. Dr Zioga and the rest of her team were continually asking me if I was doing well, and whether I needed anything. At the end of the day Katerina the technician was very helpful in explaining the after care.

In the days and weeks following, patient advisor Becki has been in touch every day to ask how I have been getting on. This level of care and professionalism is simply astounding. I’m glad I found Dr Zioga and her team and I can’t thank them enough. If you’re wondering where to get your FUE/ hair transplant done, do not hesitate any longer!

Nick N, London

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

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
