Patient Journey: Transplant Day

Here is one of our patients and their FUE Hair Transplant Journey of 2500 Hairs. We take you through his entire experience at The Treatment Rooms London with photos, blogs and more!

In The Morning

An early start at The Treatment Rooms sees you welcomed by the team and Dr Fernando, the lead Hair Transplant Surgeon who will take you through the procedure and consent forms in detail.

After consenting for the procedure, we then start to prepare you for the Hair Transplant by preparing the extraction and implantation zones.

Setting A Personal Surgical Room For You

As you will be in the surgical room for a while we make sure you have music, TV entertainment and aromatherapy to your taste before you enter so you can immediately feel relaxed.

Numbing Your Scalp and Follicle Extraction

We then give you tablets to make you feel comfortable and numb the back of your head with local numbing injections.

Once you feel comfortable we then begin to extract your follicles for implantation. Careful extraction of your hair follicles is key to a successful Hair Transplant.

We plan our extraction of hair follicles so you are left with no visible scarring or bald patches (see recovery pictures below).

Extracted Hair Follicles For Implantation

Your hair follicles are looked after in cooled petri dishes to preserve their vitality, separating them into bundles to ensure we plan and create the density and hair style you want. Following this we prepare your personalised lunch.

Lunchtime

At The Treatment Rooms we pride ourselves in providing excellence in care and service. We cater to your dietary requirements no matter what they are (e.g. ketotic diet, vegan, pescatarian, Halal, etc.)

Implantation

Once you have rested, we switch on the TV and begin to prep you for your implantation phase, starting your hair growth journey. First, we draw your desired hair line or area in which you want your hair to be implanted. This decision process is crucial as we want you to be happy with your eventual hair style.

We then numb the scalp area you want transplanted hairs to go into. After which we begin to implant your hair follicles. They are placed to match natural hair direction and density, so your eventual hair growth is personalised to you.

Finishing the Transplant

Once we have finished the implantation of your hairs, we prepare you for your aftercare. This involves:

  • Bandaging the extraction zone for your journey home and night’s sleep
  • Providing you a cap to protect your hairs for the next few days
  • Giving you an “aftercare doggy bag”, with all medications and materials you require to take care of your precious hairs that have been implanted. This package is personalised for every individual, taking into account their requirements for home aftercare.  Detailed instructions are provided on paper in case you forget what we go through at the clinic.
