We specialise in addressing various conditions, and offer personalised solutions for each unique case, including the following:
Androgenetic Alopecia (Male and Female Pattern Baldness): The most common condition treated with a hair transplant is Androgenetic Alopecia, often referred to as male or female pattern baldness. Our procedures effectively redistribute healthy hair follicles to areas experiencing hair loss.
Receding Hairlines: A receding hairline can be a source of concern for many. Our plastic surgeons work to design a natural and aesthetically pleasing hairline, restoring confidence by addressing receding or uneven hairlines.
Crown Baldness: Bald patches on the crown of the head can be effectively treated through a hair transplant. Our advanced techniques focus on achieving a balanced and fuller appearance.
Scar Revision: Scars from injuries, surgeries, burns or previous hair transplant procedures can be revised through our specialized techniques. We meticulously transplant hair follicles to minimize the appearance of scars, providing a seamless integration with the existing hair.
Thinning Hair and Volume Restoration: Hair transplant procedures can also enhance overall hair density and restore volume due to hormonal imbalances or other causes.
Other areas treated: Beard and chest hair loss can also be improved.
FUE involves shaving the back of the head to remove individual hair follicular grafts individually from the skin and implanting them into areas with thin or absent hair. A small punch is used to excise the hair follicles which leaves behind a small dot that is covered when the surrounding hair grows. The key to a comfortable hair transplant lies in the administration of local anaesthesia. The donor and recipient areas are numbed and most patients report feeling only minimal discomfort. Patient is under local anaesthesia to ensure they are relaxed and comfortable throughout the procedure. Pre-Operative instructions will be provided at the time of consultation with our team and upon booking surgery.
With our trained and knowledgeable team and with advancements in technology and techniques, the procedure is generally well-tolerated. After the procedure, some individuals may experience minor scabbing or redness around the transplant sites, which is a natural part of the healing process. Some patients may also experience mild soreness or discomfort, which is temporary and can be alleviated with prescribed pain medications, and it tends to subside within a few days.
Patients return home on the same day of their procedure and are advised to take it easy for the remainder of the day. In the immediate aftermath of a hair transplant, it's advisable to allow your body time to recover. The first few days are crucial for the healing process. While you can engage in light activities, it's best to avoid strenuous exercises, heavy lifting, and activities that may put undue stress on the treated areas. Rest, listening to your body, and following our intentional post-operative care instructions will be the primary team supporting your recovery.
As the initial days pass, you'll likely feel more comfortable and can gradually increase your activity level. Still, it's essential to avoid intense physical activities, direct sun exposure, and swimming during this period. Following your post-operative care instructions provided by your hair team will contribute significantly to a smoother recovery and optimal hair growth.
In one week you may resume your normal hair washing routine. This period allows your body to focus on healing and ensures the best possible outcome for your new hair. By the end of the week, many individuals find themselves ready to resume most of their regular activities. However, your body will know best and will tell you when the healing process has reached a point where you can return to regular, daily activity without strain. Care should still be taken while cleaning the transplanted site following hair transplant surgery, because it is during this period that the healing mechanisms of your body secure the grafts firmly in place. It is crucial to listen to your body and avoid activities that may compromise the healing process or put pressure on the grafted site.
Understanding the timeline for hair growth and the progression of results is key to managing expectations. New hair growth is visible starting at 3 months and can take around 12 to 15 months to see the full effect.
In the initial weeks following a hair transplant, it's normal for the transplanted hair to shed. This is a natural part of the process, and it doesn't mean that the procedure was unsuccessful. The follicles are merely preparing for new growth. Patience during this phase is crucial as the real transformation is yet to come.
Around the second to third month post-transplant, you may start noticing small signs of regrowth. Initially, the new hair may be fine and subtle. Results vary among individuals, and some may see more noticeable changes during this period.
The majority of patients experience significant growth and improvement in the appearance of their hair between the fourth and sixth months. At this stage, the transplanted hair becomes more visible, and you'll likely notice a positive change in your overall hair density and coverage.
As time progresses, the transplanted hair continues to thicken and mature. By the one-year mark, many individuals achieve substantial results, and the full benefits of the hair transplant become evident. Continued improvement can occur up to 18 months post-procedure.
