Hair restoration is a proven and extremely successful procedure offering a permanent result. Ramsay Medical Centre uses the most advanced techniques available in hair restoration to achieve a natural look. Our clinic is conducted by Dr Bijan Shabani and his highly trained hair restoration team. All staff are proficient in the FUE Technique.
FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) hair restoration involves the extraction of individual hair follicles from your skin and implanting them on the area of your scalp where the hair is lost or thinning. This will make the hair in the new area look thicker while maintaining natural appearance. The procedure is suitable for all male-pattern hair loss in both men and women. It is also effective for eyebrow hair restoration.
The FUE hair restoration involves the following steps:
Dr Bijan Shabani will assess your hair loss pattern and look for any underlying causes. He will then evaluate the donor area (area of skin where hair follicles will be extracted) and the recipient area (area where the hair follicles will be inserted). He will your suitability for the procedure and discuss and likely outcomes.
On the day of the procedure, your scalp will be cleansed, and the donor and recipient areas will be marked. You may receive local anaesthesia to numb the areas.
- Donor hair extraction
A small, specialized instrument will be used to individually extract hair follicles from the donor area. This process is meticulous and can take several hours, depending on the number of grafts required.
- Graft preparation
Once the hair follicles are extracted, they are carefully examined and prepared for transplantation. This involves trimming excess tissue and separating the follicles based on their size and quality.
- Recipient site creation
Tiny incisions are made in the recipient area where the hair follicles will be implanted. The angle, direction and density of the existing hair will be considered to create natural-looking results.
- Graft implantation
Using specialized tools, the extracted hair follicles will be placed into the prepared recipient sites. This step requires precision, artistry and experience to ensure the transplanted hair blends seamlessly with your existing hair.
- Post-transplant care
After the procedure, you will receive advice on how to best care for your newly transplanted hair. This may include guidelines on washing, medications, and avoiding strenuous activities for a period of time. It’s crucial to follow these instructions to promote proper healing and optimal hair growth.
Your initial assessment and consultation with Dr Shabani is complementary.
The cost of your procedure varies depending on the extent of the hair loss and the estimated time to implant each follicle.
