Hair Transplant - What Are Your Options
Posted on 24th October 2023 at 08:35
When It Comes To Hair Transplant Surgery - You Have Two Options (FUE & FUT)
FUT or Follicular Unit Transplantation is the procedure in which a section of the scalp is removed, stitched, and divided under a microscope to create grafts. These grafts are then implanted by making recipient holes. FUE or Follicular Unit Extraction is where actual follicular units (also known as grafts) are extracted. Once extracted, they are placed under a microscope to redivide, reduce, and multiply them.
Similar to FUT, the hairs are then implanted by making recipient holes. Elite Hair Restoration Ltd, also known as EHR, offers a specialized approach to these procedures.
Once the hair grafts or follicles are removed, they are placed in a special solution that increases the survival rate of the grafts. This allows the follicles to have a success rate of 94-96%, one of the top percentages in the hair restoration industry.
Finally, utilising the skills of our highly trained and experienced Hair Transplant Surgeons and Technicians, the hairs are implanted with the correct distribution level, angle, and direction under complete control of the EHR Surgical Team.
It’s common knowledge that certain techniques are shared between these methods. For FUE and FUT, the implantation part is the same. Recipient incisions (small holes) are made, and then the hairs are implanted inside the scalp using forceps. As every hair is delivered one by one, the procedure is slow but highly accurate and delivers the most natural results for hair loss surgery.
At EHR, our Surgical Team, Surgical Techniques deliver the best possible surgical outcome for Hair Loss Surgery.
Our surgeons & technicians implant the hairs directly into the incisions in the scalp with extreme precision using a range of specialised hair transplant forceps, delivering precise and accurate results.
So, now you understand the differences within the industry. Many people ask and you can too, how many grafts or follicles do I need to get obtain my desires aesthetic result?
The first and most important step of treating hair loss is a proper diagnosis, in order to do this we need to answer 3 Questions:
Do you need FUT or FUE?
Why do you need FUT or FUE?
Can you qualify as an EHR patient?
Diagnosis is a Greek word meaning “through knowledge,” which is the most important part of everything we do in life.
Elite Hair Restoration Ltd's industry expertise has enabled us to develop a comprehensive, sophisticated, and advanced diagnostic system. Hair loss is a systemic disorder and as such requires a systematic approach using Trichology, Dermatology & Psychology. We are proud to have experts in each of these fields working within Elite Hair Restoration Ltd and offering their services to our patients.
How our diagnosis works
Our team will examine you carefully, then based on the results of your examination, they will inform you of the best treatment plan for yourself. This will be based on your expectations as well as the result that can be achieved, such as the amount of grafts/hairs it is possible for us to extract and what coverage and density this will give you.
Every single staff member at Elite Hair Restoration is fully trained and has been within the industry for many years.
The next question you should ask:
How many grafts do I need, and how much is it going to cost?
Cost is an obvious factor when choosing the solution to your hair loss problems, and as a result, many people might choose the cheapest options available. However, that is a decision that should be made after they have had a comprehensive, informative, and trustworthy diagnosis by a medical professional, which is often not the case. We understand costing is a factor and offer finance options for UK based hair transplant surgery; you just need to check with your patient advisor regarding Finance Applications.
If you are unable to attend your local clinic, Elite Hair Restoration Ltd offers free online consultations. It is a distance diagnostic program where each patient is examined and discusses their thoughts with a team of experts. This is called an online diagnosis and is a service available to all patients. Last but not least! Before making your decision, you can talk with some of our patients who have already undergone treatment with us.
Here at Elite Hair Restoration Ltd, we believe in total transparency and we are happy to offer you contact with previous EHR patients in to enable you to speak to them about their experience and what to expect.
