Hair Transplant Surgery – A Natural Look That Lasts Forever.
Over the past 10 years we have seen ground breaking results for technical and surgical development in hair transplant surgery, 20 years ago a hair transplant left you with a dolls hair effect also known as the plug procedure and it was more than obvious that you had had a hair transplant. The reason the outcome left you looking like this was due to amount of hair follicles being implanted, usually 15 at a time instead of individually. However with today’s modern procedures, that are performed as a minor outpatient treatment, you achieve a completely natural look, where it is NOT POSSIBLE to detect that you have had a treatment.
The permanent results are amazing and can transform the way you look and feel.
There are several different hair transplant surgery techniques that your surgeon can use and this will depend on your own individual circumstances. With all techniques the treatment has mild discomfort and involves a local anaesthetic. The local anaesthetic is the same as you would have at the dentist and typically patients rate the discomfort as 2 out of 10, where 1 has no discomfort and 10 has a lot of discomfort. To offer you greater comfort and to put your mind at ease you can watch TV or a DVD whilst the procedure is undertaken.
The hair transplant surgery technique time varies depending on the size of the hair loss area, the density of the hair follicles and your scalp laxity (flexibility). It can be as quick as a couple of hours or for those with greater hair loss, up to 10.
The cost of hair transplant surgery varies depending on the number of grafts that are required, but prices start from £2500 (see cost of treatment page). It is important to remember that you’re investing in a permanent treatment and solution that will last a lifetime.
