Hair Transplant

Our hair specialists offer the latest FUE-2 SafeSystem hair transplant procedure known simply as ‘FUE’ (Follicular Unit Extraction).  This modern method of hair restoration is fast and effective and will give you back your confidence and appearance. 

What is a hair replacement? The latest hair replacement surgery techniques are performed by taking your own, natural hair from the sides and back of your head, known as the ‘donor site’ and transplanting or moving it to the balding areas (crown, top, and temple) of your head.  These are known as the ‘receptor’ areas.  

Baldness tends to affect more males than females however females can suffer from hair loss too.  Famous footballers such as Wayne Rooney, Scots millionaire Duncan Bannatyne, and William ‘Willo’ Flood have all successfully undergone this type of treatment.

IS A FUE HAIR TRANSPLANT SUITABLE FOR ME?

Whatever the reason for your baldness, a hair transplant can provide you with a permanent solution.  At the consultation, the hair doctor will take into consideration your medical history, age, and current health status to determine your suitability to undergo the procedure.  The consultation will enable you to come to an informed decision.

HAIR TRANSPLANT FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

HOW DOES A HAIR TRANSPLANT WORK?

Using specialized instruments, hair transplantation involves careful extraction of follicular hair units from the donor (hairy) sites on the scalp.  Following the extraction, the hairs are transplanted back to the receptor (bald) sites.

The procedure is performed by initially making small circular incisions in the skin around the follicular hair units.  Each follicle that is extracted can have anywhere from 1-4 hairs.  The tissue surrounding the follicle is separated and the unit is extracted from the scalp, leaving a small, open hole.

The individual hairs are then separated out and prepared for insertion.  Tiny holes are then created in the receptor (bald) areas and the hairs are inserted.  It is in these areas where new, healthy hair will grow from the hair-producing follicles.

In summary, the procedure allows the surgeon to remove hair from the scalp skin with minimal tissue damage.  This means FUE hair transplantation is less invasive with faster recovery times than other hair transplant techniques.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?

For men, hair loss at any age can be a distressing issue especially when it begins at an early or premature age.  With a premature loss of hair comes a loss of self-confidence and self-image in many men.  Until recently, this was just seen as an accepted reality. 

Fortunately, technology has advanced and the techniques used today for hair transplantation are effective and permanent and can dramatically restore your appearance and self-confidence.

Hair loss in women is also an issue that affects self-confidence.  this too can also be dealt with by using the same hair transplant methods.

HOW LONG WILL ONE HAIR TREATMENT SESSION TAKE?

One treatment session usually lasts between 4-8 hours.  This depends on your individual needs.  Normally, up to 2 treatments sessions can be performed on a particular trip to Budapest, but this will depend on how much hair can be harvested from your donor areas. 

WILL I EXPERIENCE ANY PAIN?

Normally the only discomfort associated with having a hair transplant is the initial application of the local anesthetic injections.  After a few minutes, the anesthetic will take effect and you will not feel any pain. 

WILL IT LEAVE A SCAR?

A hair transplant involves making very small (0.6-1mm), round incisions on the scalp using a specialized punch tool instrument.  Because these incisions are so small, they only leave tiny puncture scars which will heal on their own within about 10 days.  There are no stitches involved and thus no visible scars will remain.

HOW SUCCESFUL IS HAIR TRANSPLANT? IS IT PERMANENT?

Compared to earlier hair transplant methods, new FUE methods are highly effective and even 100% new hair growth can be achieved.  The results of the surgery are considered to be long-lasting or permanent, natural and authentic.    

WHAT IS THE RECOVERY TIME?

Recovery varies from individual to individual and can depend on your current health status, age and body’s own healing abilities.  Immediately following the treatment, you will experience scabbing that develops in the donor regions of your scalp.  This scabbing will disappear over the course of about 10 days.  The newly transplanted hair grafts or follicles are very fragile in the first 5 days of healing. It’s important to follow all the post-treatment care instructions given by the hair specialists.  After 1 week’s time, you can return to most of your normal everyday activities.
