Men’s Hair Transplant
Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) hair transplant method involves removing (extraction) follicular units of hair from another part of the body (usually the back of the head) and implanting them into an area on the head or face.
What is FUE Hair Transplant Method?
It is the most advanced method of extracting and implanting hair. Innovative extraction technology is used helping to give the best natural looking results.
FUE method is minimally invasive and comes with minimal scarring
and reduced downtime.
Anybody considering having treatment for hair loss is advised to undergo a consultation to discuss their concerns and suitability for hair transplantation surgery or restoration treatments.
After the transplant there is a shedding phase and new hair begin to grow after three months (90-100days post-surgery). This hair grows at its normal rate. The remainder of the hair will grow over the next 12-18months and keep growing for a lifetime. It should behave like the hair at the back of the head (donor site) does. Certain illnesses, medications and lifestyle choices may cause hair to shed at any point in life.
The average cost of a hair transplant for men in hair clinics in Britain varies between £4000-£6000. Some clinics charge per graft, i.e., the more grafts they give the more they charge, whereas others charge per surgery.
It is important to chose a clinic that offers a clear comprehensive package that includes aftercare reviews and treatment. It is recommended to avoid clinics who charge for surgery only and provide little to no aftercare as there will be additional hidden costs that you may incur.
There is no minimum age for adult males to undergo hair transplant surgery. Most patients however seek hair loss treatments around the age of 25 or higher as the hair loss pattern has become clear and it is affecting them socially or from a styling perspective.
Some younger patients have sought hair loss surgery as with the advancement of social media, people are more conscious of their images and how they feel, making them want to seek hair transplant surgery sooner.
The important thing to remember is that you have understood the risks and benefits thoroughly and if you decide to have hair transplant surgery when you are under 25, you will need long term non-surgical treatments alongside the surgery to maintain existing hair. Otherwise, further hair transplants may be required as you get older and hair loss of existing hair continues to progress.
There is no maximum age limit for a hair transplant. However as age increases the quality of the donor area may diminish (weaken) so a surgeon will need to carefully devise a realistic treatment in providing an age appropriate treatment plan. An 82 year old male patient successfully underwent a hair transplant at the British Hair Clinic in Essex.
