A hair transplant doesn’t give you immediate results e.g. within days. As hairs have to be taken from one part of the scalp and re-implanted into another, the roots can take some time to grow. We tend to advise that the regrowth process takes at least 12- 18 months. So you can imagine our patients therefore have a huge amount of patience!

- FUE Hair Transplant- Patient Journey
This friendly patient is often in the public eye. He takes part in body building competitions so he wanted his hair to fit his style. He was suffering from an early stage in male pattern baldness; receding in the temples and his frontal hairline.
In order to restore his hair to a hairline he wanted, the surgeons in our clinic agreed that he would benefit from an FUE hair transplant.
However, the key to a successful hair transplant was discussing how the patient wanted to style in his hair in the future. Our surgeons are able to implant hairs to match natural hair direction. This patient wanted to style his hair up, giving his hair fullness at the front. With this in mind, our surgeons had to carefully plan how many hairs would be required to give density and volume for this hair style.
FUE Hair Transplant Surgery
Extraction of 637 grafts for implantation into the frontal hairline and temple region. This was carried out using the FUE (follicular unit excision) method in one session.
Before and after FUE Hair Transplant Surgery
This patient’s result is 7 months post surgery. His hair follicles have clearly grown at a fast rate!
As you can see from the photo, instead of combing his hair to the side, our surgeons have implanted grafts so the patient can now style his hair up and back. This added volume and density has also rejuvenated his frontal hairline. You will notice that his hair appears more healthy and thick.
Treatment for hair loss
Some of you readers may also question what this patient will do if he loses more hair?
At The Treatment Rooms London we always think about the past, present and future of hair loss. The future of anybody’s hair loss is particularly important when it comes to choosing to have a hair transplant. If you don’t manage hair loss for the future you may end up with a hair transplant that looks odd in years to come. This is because you will continue to lose hair behind and around the transplant if you don’t take preventative measures against the ongoing hair loss process.
For this patient, taking medication like finasteride was undesirable. So he is currently on a regimen of Minoxidil which he is using to preserve his hair growth and thickness.
