Hair transplant procedures are fairly common nowadays and techniques have evolved to the extent that it is now a relatively pain-free and non-invasive procedure. Many celebrities have undergone hair transplants including Calum Best, James Nesbitt and Wayne Rooney and here at Ailesbury Hair Clinic we have performed 100s of successful procedures over the years. It is important to understand that it’s not always the best course of action for people suffering hair loss as it is only suitable for those who have some degree of hair growth at the back and sides.
The hair transplant procedure we use at Ailesbury is known as Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) and is carried out under local rather than general anaesthetic. As mentioned above the procedure is relatively non-invasive and it leaves very little scarring. It involves removing healthy hair follicles from the back of the head ( or places where the hair is plentiful) and grafting them on to less plentiful areas using special instruments and high powered microscope. This allows the surgeon to perform the procedure with a high degree of precision and ensures that there is very little scarring or other evidence of hair transplantation.
The procedure can be done in a day depending on the number of grafts required. As you would expect the more grafting required the longer it would take. However, our clients are usually good to return to work the following day and it’s sensible to allow 5-7 days for full healing- redness and soreness will have disappeared . After 6-12 months you will have a full , natural head of hair.
If you have decided that a hair transplant procedure is the right course of action for you and that the FUE method is the most effective treatment you will need to find a hair transplant clinic. At Ailesbury Hair Loss Clinic we are proud of our record in the hair transplant and have won numerous awards throughout the world. We were asked by the UK government to help with their review of best practices in cosmetic surgery. You can find details of this here. We have also worked with medical teams in clinics throughout the world and have trained many doctors and surgeons in our methods. So we would encourage anyone considering a hair transplant to speak to us about their situation. We have an excellent team of doctors, nurses and trichologists who will advise you on the best course of action for you. Although there are some very common reasons behind hair loss it is important that we fully understand your background and circumstances before making any recommendations.
