If you are a hair loss sufferer, you have probably heard of hair transplants – and may even be considering having this type of surgery. This guide is designed to answer some of the most common questions about hair transplant, and help you to decide whether it is the right hair restoration treatment for you.
Are hair transplants suitable for me?
Hair transplants can be performed on both men and women with certain types of hair loss. It is not usually suitable for those with alopecia areata. Experts like Vinci Hair Clinic prefer to assess individual’s suitability for treatment via a consultation in one of their hair restoration clinics, as this allows for a reliable diagnosis.
How does the hair transplant work?
There are two main types of hair transplant – FUE Follicular Unit Extraction and FUT Follicular Unit Transfer. In FUE treatments, grafts are removed using a punch and positioned in small incisions on the scalp. In FUT treatments, a strip of skin is removed from the donor area and separated into grafts before placement.
How long does recovery take?
Hair transplants are usually performed in one session, and you can return home afterwards, allowing a couple of days for recovery before you return to work. Follow after care instructions provided by the clinic to prevent damage to your grafts, and contact them immediately if you have concerns or experience excessive swelling/redness.
How do I choose a clinic to do my hair transplants?
When you opt for hair transplants, you are putting your appearance in the surgeon’s hands and should feel fully confident in their skills. It is essential to book your treatment with a clinic that has an excellent reputation for safety and quality – don’t be afraid to ask how many transplants they have performed or to review feedback from their previous clients.
