The decision to address hair loss is personal and can have various effects on daily interactions and aspects of life. We understand the importance of a treatment that aligns with each patient’s unique needs and expectations. At our clinic, we’ve chosen to offer the Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) method utilising the NeoGraft Automated Hair Transplantation system. This method involves removing individual hair follicles from the scalp in their naturally occurring groupings and placing them in the areas where hair loss has occurred.
It’s important to remember that every individual is unique and so too are their needs and desired outcomes for cosmetic surgery. If you’re considering a procedure, it’s essential to have a comprehensive consultation with one of our experienced surgeons. They can help you understand whether you’re a suitable candidate and what you can realistically expect from the surgery. The information provided here is meant to help guide you, but it’s not a replacement for professional medical advice. Always organise a consultation for personalised advice.
If you are concerned about the way you look or are thinking about cosmetic surgery for confidence reasons, there are alternatives. Talking to a or may help you overcome your concerns about your appearance.
The initial step in the NeoGraft hair transplant process is a comprehensive consultation with our experienced surgeon. During this meeting, your aesthetic goals, medical history, and current hair condition will be assessed. The surgeon will evaluate your hair density, scalp health, and the areas where hair transplantation is needed. This consultation is an ideal opportunity for you to voice any concerns or ask any questions you may have about the procedure.
Once the surgical plan has been mutually agreed upon, you will receive specific instructions on how to prepare for your NeoGraft hair transplant. These may include dietary guidelines, advice on smoking and alcohol consumption, specific instructions about medications or supplements, and hair care recommendations.
A NeoGraft hair transplant typically takes four to eight hours and is usually performed under local anesthesia with sedation. The procedure involves two main stages: extraction and implantation. During extraction, individual hair follicles are harvested from the back of the scalp, a region resistant to hair loss. These harvested follicles are then prepared for transplantation. In the implantation stage, the hair follicles are meticulously inserted into the designated areas, following the natural direction of hair growth to achieve a natural-looking result.
After the surgery, you’ll be monitored in a recovery room for a short period. Most patients can go home the same day. Mild discomfort, swelling, and redness in the treated areas are normal but will begin to subside after a few days.
Most patients feel ready to return to non-strenuous daily activities within a day or two, while more vigorous activities should be avoided for about a week. Regular follow-up appointments will be scheduled to monitor your progress and ensure a smooth recovery.
The final results of your NeoGraft hair transplant will become noticeable within a few months once the transplanted hair follicles start to grow, but the full effect may not be apparent for up to a year.
While we aim to provide accurate information about the different surgical procedures available, it’s important to understand that the content provided here serves as a general guide only. The specifics of each surgery, including the procedure detailed above, can and will vary significantly from person to person, depending on their unique circumstances and physical characteristics.
Undergoing cosmetic surgery is a serious decision that requires ample thought, careful consideration, and meticulous planning. It should never be taken lightly or treated trivially, as it can have profound impacts on one’s lifestyle and wellbeing.
Recovery from cosmetic surgery, too, requires time, support, and proper aftercare. We strive to present realistic and transparent information about the recovery process, but individual experiences may vary. It is typical for recovery to involve certain services or requirements, such as the use of compression garments or receiving therapeutic massages. It also often necessitates significant lifestyle changes, which may include a period of absence from employment and temporary restrictions on certain activities.
In light of these considerations, we strongly encourage potential patients to engage in comprehensive discussions with their GP and our surgeons. The goal is to fully understand the implications, requirements, and likely outcomes of any chosen procedure, and to make informed decisions about their health and aesthetics.
