Whatever the causes of hair loss, hair transplants can be a highly effective solution for both men and women. Hair transplant procedures have become much more sophisticated in recent times, with advances in both the transplant procedure itself and results. It has become a viable and accessible option for many hair loss sufferers. Surgery takes just one day, has fast recovery times, and there’s no overnight stay required. You’ll also get incredibly natural-looking results.
But to get good results, you need to find an excellent UK hair transplant surgeon to perform your procedure.
The best hair transplant surgeons are highly skilled and have years of experience. They also hold memberships with the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgeons (ISHRS) and the British Association of Hair Restoration Surgery (BAHRS). All UK hair transplant clinics should also be registered with the Care Quality Commission. This ensures they’re providing high standards of care.
Modern hair transplants are largely safe, effective procedures. But as with any kind of surgical intervention, it’s important to do some research and carefully consider your options when looking for the best UK hair transplant surgeon.
If you want to have a hair transplant abroad, it’s a good idea to research your clinic thoroughly. Hair transplants in Turkey are cheaper than the UK, but Turkey is notorious for poor safety records when it comes to cosmetic surgery.
How to find the best UK hair transplant surgeon
When considering any type of hair transplant, it’s important to find a skilled and experienced hair surgeon. They should also work at a reputable hair transplant clinic. A successful hair transplant is a highly complex, precise and skilled procedure. That’s why you need to find an experienced surgeon who can deliver natural-looking results. The most popular procedure is the FUE transplant – these hair transplant before and after photos demonstrate real-life results.
FUE involves carefully extracting individual follicular units then inserting them into the affected area. This is a lengthy and highly precise procedure.
The best hair surgeons know how to handle each individual case. They ensure that the right treatment method is used, so that the results look natural and scarring is kept to a minimum.
Aftercare is an equally important part of the procedure. The best clinics will provide you with everything you need, as well as educating you on the best way to care for your hair and scalp after your hair transplant. Check out how many transplants they have done and if they are registered with the appropriate medical council.
How to find the best hair restoration clinic
If you decide that a hair transplant is right for you, it’s advisable to carry out some research to find the best hair transplant clinic & hair surgeon for you. We advise speaking to multiple clinics simultaneously to get a feel for their expertise and knowledge.
A good starting point is simply to research online and look for previous patient reviews. This will give you an idea of what to expect in terms of both the procedure and results.
How to book a hair surgeon consultation
Once you have a list of reputable clinics and the best surgeons, you can book a consultation at the clinic. It’s a good idea to ask to meet your hair transplant surgeon at some point during your consultation. You should also ask these questions during the consultation to determine whether or not the surgeon is right for you:
- Why should I use you over another surgeon?
- Will anything improve my hair transplant?
- Which procedure is best for me, FUT or FUE?
- How much will it cost me? (Read our guide on hair transplant costs)
- What is the recovery timeline and will I need time off work?
- Will I need another procedure in the future and how many hair transplants can you have?
The surgeon’s answers to these questions should help you to decide whether or not they are the right fit. You should also feel comfortable and looked after during your consultation. It’s also important that you don’t feel pressured into a procedure you’re unsure about. Opting for a surgical procedure is a big decision and you shouldn’t take it lightly.
Is a hair transplant right for you?
Hair transplants can be an excellent solution for both men and women experiencing female or male pattern baldness, also known as androgenetic alopecia. You should consult your surgeon (in case you suffer from another condition like alopecia areata) to see whether surgery is the right solution for you. It may be the case that you are simply deficient in a certain mineral or vitamin, in which case you may be able to take vitamins for hair growth and restoration.
While it is a highly effective option, it’s crucial that you find a reputable clinic and an experienced surgeon who is skilled in this delicate and complex procedure. With some careful due diligence on your part, you can expect a successful hair transplant experience, with the best, most natural-looking results possible, as well as a fast recovery time and minimal scarring.
