Losing your hair can be an incredibly hard thing for anyone to go through, it can impact a lot of aspects of your life. However, not all hope is lost, hair transplants give people the ability to have more hair for longer. There a lot of poor quality clinics that will offer to do it for cheap but something as impoortant as your hair is not worth it being done badly.
Hair transplants involve taking hair from thicker parts of the head (donor area) and grafting it to thinnner parts. Obviously for this to happen you need to have hair, so if youre completely bald you are probalby not going to be eligbile for a hair transplant. For people with still hair on their head, there are two different types of transplants: follicular unit extraction (FUE) and follicular unit transplantation (FUT).

How does a hair transplant work?
A hair transplant basically involves taking hair form one part of the head (usually the back or side) and transfering it to an area that is thinning. There are two types of hair transplant: FUE & FUT.
Follicular unit transplantation (FUT)
Follicular unit transplantation (FUT) involves taking a strip of hair from the donor site and inserted onto the part of the scalp where there’s thinning. The grafts are placed into tiny cuts in the scalp and the donor area is stitched up. Find out more here.
Follicular unit extraction (FUE)
Follicular unit extraction (FUE) involves the donor area being shaved and the grafts being taken out individually. The grafts are then placed into cuts made in the scalp where the hairs will go. This procedure leaves less visible scarring. Find out more here.

Hair Transplant – Are you a suitable candidate?
Age Hair Transplant
Age when considering hair surgery will be a major consideration. If you hair is receding at an early age, there is more chance that the remaining hair will fall leaving only that of what has been transferred.
Amount of Donor Hair?
Surgical Procedures requires sufficient hair to cover the area in question. This may sound obvious but there is only a certain amount of hair that one may transfer.
This is a major factor when deciding if one is suitable. There are of course many scalp conditions that may cause issues if not settled prior to hair surgery. As skin specialists we can in most cases deal with this.
Irreversible hair Loss
Therefore establishing the reason why hair has shed is of the up most importance. In many cases, a bald region can be covered with transplanted hair following surgical hair restoration. In this procedure, hairs harvested from the safe regions (between the ears) are re positioned to eliminate baldness elsewhere. The procedure can be a life changing experience in the right hands. Patients regain confidence and in some cases find they actually look younger.
