What is a hair transplant?

A surgical hair transplant surgery is a simple, outpatient procedure. Naturally, whether you are male or female, you more than likely have a lot of questions regarding your hair restoration surgery itself and how it compares in effectiveness to other thinning hair remedies available in the market.

 

Hair transplantation is not to be confused with hair replacement, in the way of wigs and hair systems. Unlike hair replacement systems, hair transplantation surgery is a permanent solution that requires no on-going maintenance.

 

Hair transplantation is widely considered to be the most effective option for restoring hair because it’s a permanent, relatively simple procedure, and it achieves a natural look. During a hair transplant procedure, Dr Bhatty moves healthy hair follicles from one location and relocates them to the area of the head that’s thin or bald. The hair transplant itself can consist of anywhere between several hundred to a few thousand grafts, depending on a patients’ hair loss classification and the amount of hair needed to fill in the balding areas. Each hair follicle extracted from the donor area is carefully transplanted into the scalp in the recipient area to match the patients’ previous hair growth pattern where the new hair will continue to grow as usual. This newly transplanted hair is artistically placed to complement the natural growth of the patients’ hairline and their facial features and give them the most natural looking results.

 

Unlike hairpieces which may not exactly match your hair colour and type, hair transplantation looks completely natural because it is your own hair – just moved to a new spot.

 

The different techniques

We offer two types of hair transplant surgery both performed under local anaesthetic.

 

Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE): Dr Bhatty will pluck small groupings of healthy hair from your head and transplant them into the area of hair loss. Transplanted hair will then begin to grow as normal after a few months. The more hair that is transplanted, the better the result. There’s no scarring and it’s usually completed in one morning or afternoon session.

 

Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT): Each individual hair follicle is dissected under magnification. Fine incisions are made and each follicle is planted in the area of loss. With follicular hair transplantation more hair can be transplanted within the procedure time, giving effective results faster.

 

At your consultation, Dr Bhatty will discuss both options with you and advise you as to which option he feels would best suit you and your circumstances. You can read more about hair transplant at Wikipedia too.

 

How much does it cost?

It can cost between £2,997 and £6,997 depending on the hair transplant technique and the size of the procedure.

Testimonials

“Dr Bhatty was pleasant, professional and most of all reassuring from the initial consultation through to surgery, and thereafter. I can’t express how pleased I am with the results and in fact it exceeded my expectation. What a smashing guy! - Mike Sweeney, BBC Radio Manchester


What is it?

FUE involves removing healthy hair follicles directly from the scalp and grafting them one-by-one into the bald areas of the head.


Why would I choose FUE?

Though the basic principle is the same as with older transplant procedures (you’re essentially uprooting hair from one part of the body and embedding it in another) it’s popular because it delivers more natural-looking results. It’s also less painful – and downtime is minimal.


What does it involve?

Unlike ‘strip’ transplants, where whole chunks of skin are removed and grafted elsewhere, with FUE individual hairs are taken from the sides and back of the head and are implanted individually into the patient’s balding areas.


How long does it take?

A typical FUE procedure takes around eight hours. After 10 months there’s a 90% permanent ‘uptake’ (10% of hair follicles are always in a ‘resting’ phase so, as with seedlings in your garden, some won’t ‘make it’).


Does it hurt?

Patients who’ve undergone the procedure tend to describe it as uncomfortable rather than painful, though the length of time it takes means you do require a high boredom threshold.


How much does is cost?

Prices vary depending on the clinic and the amount of hair you need transplanting, but expect to pay  around £3,500 – £7,000. If you are interested in knowing more about FUE, then please do not hesitate to contact us.

Side effects, risks and complications

Whilst these procedures are carried out by Dr Bhatty, an experienced and well -respected surgeon, under local anaesthetic, any surgical procedure carries the rare risk of complications. These will be explained to you before you book your hair transplant surgery.

 

Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT):

Each individual hair follicle is dissected under magnification. Fine incisions are made and each follicle is planted in the area of loss. With follicular hair transplantation more hair can be transplanted within the procedure time, giving effective results faster.

The more hair that is transplanted, the better the result. There’s no scarring and it’s usually completed in one morning or afternoon session.

 

After surgery

The transplanted area may feel sore for a few days. You may want to take a few days off work whilst your scalp heals. Before leaving us we’ll give you practical advice on how to look after the treated area and ask you to make a follow-up appointment to check your progress.

 

How much does it cost?

It can cost between £3,000 and £7,000 depending on the hair transplant technique and the size of the procedure.

There are three main types of hair loss. If you are unsure which category you fall in you can either consult your GP first or we will be happy to assist in your diagnosis.

 

1. ANDROGENETIC ALOPECIA

This is the most common type of hair loss and is also known as Male/Female Pattern Baldness. For most men, it begins with a receding hair line then baldness occurs around the crown of the scalp. For women, it’s the thinning of the top of the scalp, made more noticeable down the middle parting.

 

2. TELOGEN EFFLUVIUM (TE)

This is the second most common type of hair loss and related to severe or sudden stress that causes the hair to shed. Although this happens to men and women, women are usually affected when experiencing childbirth, long-term take of oral contraceptives, and miscarriage. In most cases, TE is a temporary phase of hair loss and hair will soon grow back when the person has already recovered from stress.

 

3. ALOPECIA AREATA

This is an auto-immune hair disease which can be first occurring during childhood. It affects both men and women. The first sign of Alopecia Areata is the patchy hair loss on the scalp. Severe cases of Alopecia Areata can cause all of the scalp hair to shed and even all of all body hair as well.

 

You can find more details on hair loss and the solutions available to you on your website. If you would like to discuss your problem then please call us on: 0191 284 1355.



The cause in over 90% of hair loss cases is defined as hair loss at the front, top and/or the crown/vertex of the scalp – known as the non-permanent area. The back and sides of the scalp, where hair usually grows for life, is known as the ‘permanent’ area.

 

Male pattern hair loss is brought on by the presence of hormone receptors in the hair roots in the non-permanent area – no such receptors exist in the so-called permanent area. These receptors are stimulated by the male hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT) and, when this happens, the hair loss process is triggered. The number and location of these susceptible hairs is determined by inherited genetics from one or both parents.

 

Hair is lost because of a change in the lifecycle of the hair root caused by DHT. In simple terms, this cycle consists of a growing phase and a resting phase. Before hair loss sets in, the growing phase lasts up to seven years and the resting phase lasts three to four months. Genetic hair loss is a result of the life cycle phases going into reverse i.e. the growing phase becomes shorter and shorter and the resting phase longer. Eventually, the hair grows very little or not at all.

The commonly held – and incorrect – belief that hair loss in women is uncommon can lead to women suffering from the condition to wonder if there is something seriously wrong. In turn, this can lead to them taking quite some time to pluck up the courage to seek medical advice, and even longer to seek treatment.


A confidential consultation with Dr Mabroor Bhatty can provide the reassurance and confidence needed to take a positive step to remedy the situation.


The difficulty in dealing with hair loss in women is that a number of conditions result in the same diffuse pattern, in which the hair over the top and crown of the head becomes thinner. There is often some investigation needed to first isolate the true cause before deciding on a treatment.

If possible, the first person you should turn to is your GP and, depending on their findings, you may be referred to a dermatologist (skin specialist doctor), endocrinologist (hormone specialist doctor) or gynaecologist.

 

If you get referred to us, or you do not wish to see your GP about this, we will arrange for you to consult with a trusted trichologist (hair and scalp specialist) and if indicated, Dr Bhatty as well. We will need to take a detailed medical, drug and family history and conduct an examination of your hair and scalp.

 

It is most likely that you will need some blood tests: full blood count, glucose, serum ferritin (iron stores), thyroid hormones and, where relevant, gestational hormone levels amongst others. The treatment you require, whether medical, surgical or simply cosmetic, then depends on the identified cause of the hair loss.

 

In many cases where there is permanent hair loss and a sufficient area of normal hair growth, hair transplantation can be contemplated once any underlying problem has been treated.

 

What  happens next?

 

One very important aspect of your treatment is its planning. To this end, during your consultation, you will be taken through the pros and cons of the options open to you, so that you are in a position to make an informed choice.

 

Some women are more suited to surgical treatment than others (and some are not suitable candidates at all). We shall endeavour to give you as realistic a picture as possible of the type of result you can expect from your treatment, whether it be surgical or non-surgical.

Why is hair transplant surgery the most efficient treatment for hair loss?

Hair transplant, hair restoration or hair implantation is the medical procedure of permanently restoring hair by transplanting new follicles into balding or thinning areas. Simply said, healthy hair is taken from other areas of the body, most often the back or the sides of the head. The number of grafts needed is unique for every patient, as well as the size of the area being treated.

 

What could hair transplant actually mean to you?

Most of us take thick hair for granted – until it’s gone. Hair transplant may bring back your more desirable look, but what’s the most important is what happens on an emotional plane – a person restores confidence and is more joyful, since hair loss may be a major psychological obstacle to leading a more active social and business life.


It’s time to turn the page

Hair transplants aren’t reserved for rich elite anymore. Development of modern technologies made hair transplants affordable to everyone.

 

Even if you think your situation and circumstances are unique and complicated, they may not be as unique as you think. We have helped clients with all kinds of different special circumstances and we are absolutely confident that we can help you in your time of need.

 

The techniques we use

We offer two types of hair transplant surgery that are performed under local anesthetic to avoid any discomfort during the procedure.


Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE):

Small groupings of healthy hair are plucked from back or side of the head and transplanted into the area of hair loss. There’s no scarring and it’s usually completed in one morning or afternoon session.


Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT):

Each individual hair follicle is dissected under magnification. Fine incisions are made and each follicle is planted in the area of loss. With follicular hair transplantation more hair can be transplanted within the procedure time, giving effective results faster.


At your free consultation, our specialists will discuss both options with you and advise you as to which option would best suit you and your circumstances.
