Hair transplant procedures have recently been voted one of the best ways to spend money cosmetically and the numbers outweigh happiness levels when compared to hair replacement methods such as wigs and hair systems. Not only that but transplanting offers much less fuss in the future and is a permanent solution that requires very little maintenence.
The idea of hair transplanting as you have probably seen on the likes of Wayne Rooney is to restore lost hair and your natural hairline.
What’s involved in a hair transplant :
The procedure involves an intricate process that will achieve the best results for you personally. Before the transplant takes places, patients meet with the surgeon that will perform the procedure who will often inform them that it only takes one day to carry out a transplant and that it is performed on an outpatient basis.
Pre-transplant, photographs are taken to help understand and document the hair loss procedure and point out exactly where the areas of thinning are located in order to be treated.
Once the details are finalised and the results of the transplant are discussed, a surgeon will mark the treatment areas using a pen (or similar) to highlight the location and shape of the new hairline. The donor site of the head is prepared and the hair is trimmed so that surrounding hair will cover the donor area after transplantation. Local anaesthetic is then used to numb the donor area in order to make the process as comfortable and pain-free as possible.
Once the donor hair tissue is removed from the head, the follicular units are prepared for placement. As the process takes a little time, patients are relaxed and free to pass time by reading or watching TV. At this stage the individual is able to walk around and use the toilet. Following this, the next stage of the transplant takes place and often the donor strips of hair are separated in to groups, also known as units.
Once the hair follicles are divided, they are ready to be transplanted in to the head of the male or female. More local anaesthetic is used to further-ensure that the patient is comfortable when placement takes place in the recipient area. Tiny cuts are made to the scalp in the area where the hair is being transplanted to where they can be easily placed at the correct location, angle and depth required.
Because hair transplanting is an intricate process, it should always be performed by a qualified and experienced professional with years of experience carrying out the exact procedure. All of our staff meet this criteria and have hundreds of happy customers in the UK who recommend our services through word of mouth.
