Hair loss can be one of the worst times of a man’s life, it can really set your confidence back. When you start to look into treatments you want something that is going to last, something permanent. At the Harley Street Hair Clinic they often get asked if their FUE hair transplants are a permanent hair loss solution, today, they're going to look into it.
Hair loss is extremely common and will more than likely affect everyone at some stage of their life. Hair loss can happen for a number of different reasons, from ageing to stress.
Different types of hair loss will need different treatments, for example, stress related hair loss might not need any treatment at all. Hair will usually resume the normal growth phase after a few months when you’re no longer stressed. Other types of hair loss such as Androgenetic Alopecia and Non-Pattern hair loss will need to be treatment.
The FUE transplantation method works by using a micro surgical extraction instrument to remove individual hair follicles, whilst under local anaesthesia. These follicles are removed from parts of the scalp with more hair, usually found at the back and sides.
The hair is then transplanted to the areas of the scalp that are thinning or bald. A micro surgical needle is used to puncture the scalp and the Clinic's expert doctors then insert each graft into the scalp at an angle and density that will blend in with the original hair to resemble a natural and realistic hair pattern.
Will my hair transplant be a permanent solution?
FUE hair transplants are extremely long lasting and one of the most successful hair loss treatments available.
Once you’ve had your hair transplant the transplanted hair will shed after a few weeks, this is a normal part of the procedure and your hair will grow back strong and healthy. Your hair will start to grow in the transplanted areas and you’ll start to see your new head of hair after around 3-6 moths of growth.
Your new transplanted hair will continue to grow, as it did in the donor area and your new hair growth will be permanent. During your personalised consultation Harley Street Hair Clinic's experts will ensure you are a suitable candidate for a hair transplant. They will investigate your age, family history and hair loss type, they will then be able to foresee any future hair loss on any other areas of the scalp and design your transplant around this.
