Some of the lowest Re-treat rates in the World
Whilst UK Hair stand by their no quibbles guarantee we don’t take pleasure in retreating Patients which can for many be an added inconvenience. We do our utmost to avoid the necessity for retreat and as such turn 2 in 10 Patients away. Through years of experience we can spot a potential issue at consultation and in those unfortunate cases we are likely to turn that Patient away. Here’s a short guide to the common reasons Common reasons for poor growth.
Common Reasons for Poor Growth
1) Donor Density and Follicle Quality
It’s rare that we can’t extract the number of follicles that we quote for and because we have to provide a guarantee, we are very selective of the Patients we treat. Donor density is one of the key criteria that we assess and quantify during the consultation diagnostics. Our consultant clinicians are trained to undertake detailed microscopic examinations of your donor area to ensure that not only are the follicles abundant but that they are of premium quality and have a high to certain likelihood of growth following implantation. One in seven Patients will not proceed due to poor donor density. If you are one of these Patients we will talk to you about the other options available to supplement poor donor and enhance your result arriving at a combinative treatment plan in 50% of poor donor cases.
2) Quality of Surgery
All of our processes from the moment you place your first enquiry to the final review are constantly monitored, reviewed, updated and independently audited. Our clinical processes come under greater scrutiny than any other to ensure that the Patient journey is wholly ethical, comfortable and of the highest surgical and ancillary standards. Every aspect of the clinical process is monitored and recalibrated against recognised quality standards on at least a monthly basis.
As robust as it may be, the donor area is sadly finite and as such avoidance of transection and optimisation of follicular survival is absolutely vital to the eventual outcome of your procedure. Every single case is different and some prove more testing than others. By being conservative in our estimate of potential graft yield we not only ensure that you achieve those magic numbers but frequently are able to deliver a graft count that is above the Patient’s expectations. At UK Hair we understand the importance of technology and innovation but disagree with the use of preprogrammed machines for extraction, we invest the money that other organisations spend on the latest robotics to employ and train the most highly skilled technical teams each of whom has a combined service of over 80 years and have worked on over 2000 cases each one of them different. Because our skill set is so diverse and because we are consistent in our approach every member of our team handles each case with maximum dexterity, tackling any Patient case with only positive adaptation of an already robust technique.
The experience and relationships that exist within the UK Hair Surgical team are second to none and are renowned within the industry for the way in which every Patient is made to feel immediately at ease in a foreign and potentially intimidating clinical environment. The team that serve UK Hair Patients today are the very same people that attracted, won and welcomed the BBC in our celebrated documentary. That’s the same team that look after all of our high profile Clients with maximum discretion and who are responsible for the outstanding results that you see on television and in magazines across the UK today.
