Why is the FUE different from other hair transplants?
Traditional hair transplants involve the transplantation of a strip of skin with hair follicles attached from an area of healthy growth to the part of the scalp suffering hair loss. This type of transplant is a significant procedure requiring a longer recovery time than the FUE.
During the FUE hair transplant, the head is shaved, then individual follicles or units are taken from the back and sides of the client’s head, where growth tends to be most vigorous. These follicles are carefully preserved then transferred to the problem areas and inserted into small incisions in the scalp.
The process only requires a local anaesthetic. The FUE transplant typically lasts between 6-10 hours; however, the length of the procedure depends on how many follicles need to be harvested to provide the desired hair restoration.
When will I see the results of my hair restoration procedure?
Clients are understandably impatient to see the results of their hair transplant, but remember that your hair has been shaved and will take time to grow back. You will start to see the results of the process after about six months. Initially, you may be able to see tiny scars where the hair transplant surgeon made the incisions, but these will continue to fade and will be hidden by even a close-cropped hairstyle.
Perhaps the most significant advantage of the FUE hair transplant over more traditional procedures is the low level of scarring, which allows you to wear any hairstyle you wish without having to worry about hiding the residual scars. You will no longer need to be self-conscious about wet weather or wind disturbing your hair and will be able to participate in sports and swimming fully.
How does it take to recover?
You will not need to stay in hospital after the FUE hair transplant but can go home the same day. Birmingham clients leaving the clinic receive comprehensive instructions about scalp care. It is essential to take it easy for a few days as the scalp heals, but most clients feel up to resuming normal activities after three days.
Am I a candidate for the Follicular Unit Excision procedure?
There are many factors to consider before undertaking even such a safe procedure as the FUE Hair Transplant. We offer free 15-minute video consultations to all clients so that they can talk to a surgical team member about their suitability for the procedure. Issues such as your age and your current level of hair loss will be relevant to your suitability for the procedure.

What is the cost of a hair transplant near Birmingham?
The FUE hair transplant is a lengthy procedure that can only be performed successfully by highly skilled hair transplant surgeons experienced in restoring permanent natural regrowth for their clients. This level of expertise is expensive, but our clients would not trust anyone else with their hair restoration.
It is difficult to estimate the price until one of our surgeons has assessed how many hair follicles are required. The number of follicles involved determines the duration of the procedure. The final cost will also cover regular reviews for a year.
