What is a hair transplant?
Learn if hair restoration treatment is for you
Some form of alopecia will affect about 60% of men and 50% of women in their lifetime, with many finding it extremely difficult to cope with the psychological effect. Damage to your self-esteem and confidence can affect your social and professional life and this is the reason why hair transplants have always been so desirable.
So what is a hair transplant?
A hair transplant is a procedure where healthy hair follicles are transplanted to the area affected by alopecia.
The most recent application of microsurgery in the field of hair surgery – along with better understanding of the distribution and orientation of hair in different areas of the scalp – has revolutionised hair transplant techniques. This has allowed precise transplantation that perfectly replicates the natural growth pattern of individual hairs.
The two main hair transplant procedures you can choose from are: Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT Hair Transplant) and Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE). The main difference between the two procedures is the method of harvesting the hairs:
a) FUT, also known as the ‘strip method’, is where the surgeon will remove a strip of skin from the back of your head containing a number of hair follicles and graft them to the affected area. Read more.
b) FUE is a more time consuming procedure because individual follicles are extracted from the donor area one-by-one and then transplanted to the affected area. Read more.
Why do people choose to have a hair transplant?
Each person’s way of dealing with hair loss is different, some people resign themselves to going bald, and others choose to do something about it:
- Gain confidence – Confidence plays a big role in how good you feel and how successful you are. A hair transplant from the London hair Loss Clinic can provide a permanent boost to your confidence.

Are hair transplants safe procedures?
The short answer is, yes. When you are in the hands of a hair restoration specialist, hair transplant procedures are completely safe. The success of the treatment and how natural the hair transplant appears depends very much on the skill and experience of the aesthetic surgeon.
It’s vital that you’re selective about the clinic and the surgeon performing your procedure. Whether you choose to work with the London Hair Loss Clinic or not, that is good advice to remember.
