As featured in the press we are South London’s first hair transplant clinic offering FUE Surgery. We take pride in being able to establish individual treatment plans which are holistic and account for the future.
Losing your hair can be very worrying. With modern techniques such as Follicular Unit Excision (FUE), hair transplant surgery can now restore your hair to a style you desire.
What is FUE?
FUE surgery involves relocating or transplanting hairs from the back and sides of the head to a balding area. Over time these hairs will grow, recreating hair where it has previously been lost. The end result is a rejuvenated appearance and this is what The Treatment Rooms specialises in.
How does FUE work?
The underlying principles for hair transplant surgery are the same for both males and females. Hairs at the side and back of the head are resistant to the balding process and remain for life. These hairs can be taken out and re-implanted into balding recipient areas. These recipient areas are often:
1) The hairline and mid-scalp (hairline hair transplant)
2) The crown (crown hair transplant)
The hairs that are re-implanted are resistant to your body’s balding process. This means a hair transplant is a permanent solution to balding. And the hairs that are transplanted will then grow over the next 8-12 months becoming thicker over time too. However, like any surgery you will need to carefully consider whether the procedure is the best option for you.

Is A Hair Transplant Painful?
A hair transplant can be performed whilst you are awake. Using local anaesthesia our surgeons are able to numb the back and front of your head. This makes your head feel numb, like a helmet, whilst the operation is carried out.
How Long Does A Hair Transplant Take?
Hair transplant surgery usually takes 8-10 hours to complete. The total amount of time taken depends on the size of your transplant and how your operation progresses on the day.
Will I Need To Shave My Head?
As a female you can normally have an unshaven hair transplant. We are able to conceal your transplant at the back of the head by shaving small areas of hair and covering the area with your hair above.
As a male, you can choose to have a shaven or unshaven hair transplant. Normally we will need to shave the back and sides of your head so that we can extract your hairs. However, depending on your preference and the extent of your balding you can choose to leave the hair on top long or shaven. Having an unshaven hair transplant may lengthen your procedure but allows you to conceal any signs of your surgery easier. These options can be discussed in full with your hair transplant surgeon.
When Can I Go Back To Work?
You can technically go back to work the following day after having a hair transplant. However, we tend to advise at least a 5-7 day rest after having the procedure. This allows you to take care of your precious newly implanted hair in the first few days after surgery.
How Much Does A Hair Transplant Cost?
The cost of a hair transplant depends on a number of factors. Our price can only be determined in a face to face consultation. Your hair transplant price will be dependant on:
- How bald you are
- Which areas you want transplanted and your preferred density
- Your hair type
- Your preferences around shaven or unshaven hair transplant surgery
