The Problem

A woman’s hair can feel like her crowning glory; recent statistics suggest the average female spends up to £40,000 and two-and-a-half years on maintenance of it in her lifetime – it’s not usually something we easily part with. If hair begins to fall out, it isn’t just the individual strands we lose. Some people can find it absolutely devastating with many experiencing an effect on their self-esteem as well as depression in some cases.

There can be a number of reasons behind female hair loss; from lack of adequate nutrition and stress, to traction alopecia or hormonal imbalances. With varied and complicated causes behind scalp issues, it is important to meet with the correct experts of hair restoration for women before you decide to go ahead with any method of treatment. Our expert team of trichologists, hair transplant surgeons and hair loss experts are there to help you understand your own individual case and find the best way forward for you.

1 in 4 women will experience hair thinning, but there’s a huge difference in the extent and reasoning behind it. Contributing factors can vary from the stress of hair extensions and accessories on the scalp, to hormones or illness. Treatment, therefore, needs to be targeted and completely individual to your specific diagnosis and scalp issues. While over-the-counter shampoos and products can promise to restore less covered scalps, unfortunately they never take into consideration the reasons behind what’s happening and very rarely work.

Our Team

The Private Clinic has only the most experienced Surgeons, Doctors and Nurses in their respective fields, so you can be confident you are in safe hands.

Your treatment always needs to be unique to you. We don’t believe in blanket methods or quick-fixes; our team are there to find the cause of your hair loss and ensure – if treatment goes ahead – it is the best way for your needs.

Before undergoing any form treatment, you will meet with one of our expert trichologists who will analyse your hair to understand what the cause is. Each journey is different, but they might suggest anything from medication to restoration surgery. For patients who find nutritional deficiencies to be the leading cause of their problem, your trichologist will often formulate a dietry restoration plan which may consist of supplements and vitamins. We are proud to be a stockist of Viviscal Professional – a scientifically-proven supplement that is a forerunner in providing healthy hair.

If the trichologist believes your hair problem is best resolved through a hair transplant, we have some of the most experienced Hair Transplant Surgeons in Europe able to offer the most advanced method of minimally invasive hair restoration – FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction). The walk-in, walk-out method which requires no hospital stay and leaves no linear scarring, works through the extraction of individual follicles from a donor area which are then transplanted one-by-one into the area that needs to be treated. The benefits of FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) include:

  • Natural-looking results and dense packing
  • A simpler, less painful and minimally invasive procedure
  • No scalpels, stitches or linear scarring
  • Use of only strong, healthy follicles
  • With our evidence based master plan, we can work to prevent future loss of hair

The Results

Regardless of what treatment you undertake, the aim is always to slow down your hair loss and (where possible) restore areas of depleted hair. Medication can prevent further hair loss from taking place and can be the best method for those with certain conditions, however it is important to remember it cannot re-grow hair that has already been completely lost.

If our team believe a transplant to be the best way forward, your final result should be natural-looking with no linear scarring in the donor area. Your surgeon will only agree to perform the treatment if they believe the final result will be beneficial to your needs and undetectable. Transplantation is the only way to restore hair in areas that have lost their follicles completely, providing your donor areas are adequate.

Downtime

Depending on the cause of your hair loss, medication can be a long-term commitment with some forms of hair loss requiring permanent medication. However, these should have limited impact on other areas of your life.

Healing time after a FUE transplant is significantly less than more traditional, strip restoration surgery. We usually recommend you remain off work for a day or two after treatment to ensure you feel well and can follow post-operative advice, and most patients can normally return to sporting activities after about a week.

As there can be various reasons and factors affecting hair loss for females, we recommend a consultation and in depth lifestyle analysis with one of our highly experienced Trichologists. The costs for 1hr consultations range from £127 – £197 depending on the level of experience of the Trichologist you are seeing.

“Thank you so much for the fantastic result. The whole experience throughout the day was brilliant and I am so grateful to all the staff for making me feel so relaxed and comfortable as I was extremely nervous beforehand. Thanks a million!” *

“Today’s treatment was brilliant. I was looked after really well by the nurses. They were really nice and attentive. My procedure was so much better than expected. Dr Zioga did a fantastic job. Thanks!” *

C.B., London - July 2015

“Despite having experienced the FUT procedure with good results, I felt reluctant to have a second procedure, as I had initially planned because the process had been fairly aggressive. Nothing I had not been fully informed of, just more arduous than I expected. The recovery was long and sometimes uncomfortable and I did not get feeling back in my rear scalp for months. When I read about FUE, I was immediately intrigued and enquired at the Private Clinic about the Unshaven U-FUE procedure. I met with Doctor Kouremada-Zioga and she assessed my scalp and the potential of my donor area. I was encouraged by her honesty and frankness with regards to a further procedure and hugely encouraged by the prospect of a less invasive experience. When the time came, I arrived at the Clinic a little nervous, which was to be expected but was soon put at my ease by Doctor Kouremada-Zioga and her amazing team. I felt very relaxed going in and was delighted to discover that the FUE method was indeed free of discomfort, and I chatted happily as the grafts were implanted. I was well fed and watered and able to visit the bathroom when necessary. The whole day passed by quickly and painlessly and I am looking forward to seeing the results as they develop. I would thoroughly recommend Doctor Kouremada and her team to anyone, whether they wished their transplant to be undetectable or not.” *
