Over the course of recent years, the technique of hair restoration surgery has developed enormously. Hair grafts have become increasingly smaller and refined, changing from 15 to 25 hair grafts to as small as one and two hair grafts. Modern transplant techniques performed by a skilled doctor can produce quite natural looking results, which are often indistinguishable from normal hair.
The donor hair needs to be first taken from an appropriate area of your skin where the hairs are quite thick. Once collected, the individual grafts can be prepared by a team of trained technicians; these grafts can be as tiny as using only one or two hairs. The patients scalp is anaesthetised and the grafts are then placed into tiny incisions in the skin. The process of graft insertion can take many hours; and depending on the extent of original hair loss, degree of correction required and type of procedure, you may need to return for further procedures to obtain a good aesthetic result. Most successful transplants take from between 1 and 2 years to complete. Private costs for hair transplantation range from approximately £1,000 - £10,000 as they tend to be based on the number and type of grafts transplanted, along with the amount you require.
