Choosing the Right Hair Transplant for You
Androgenic Alopecia or Male Pattern Hair Loss (MHPL) is responsible for the vast majority of balding in men. Further figures released by the British Association of Hair Restoration Surgery (BAHRS) show that over 90% of male hair loss can be blamed on heredity patterns. However, developments in hair transplant technology means treatments are no longer reserved for famous footballers and sport stars. For many men hair loss can lead to a loss in confidence, but it can be conquered.
At the Aesthetic Beauty Centre we offer two kinds of treatments. FUE is closest to the type of hair transplant most people are familiar with and involves taking hair from one part of the head and transferring it to the places where you want more coverage. Each individual section of hair move is called a graft. Biofibre is a newer technique that uses artificial hair to create the grafts.
Natural vs. Artificial grafts is the main difference between our two treatments but there are other factors, such as process and recovery time, that you will need to consider prior to treatment. To help you decide which is the best option for you we have created an easy to understand guide pulling out key points from each of the treatments available. You can also book a free consultation where you can talk to one of clinicians about your needs and the suitability for you of the different treatments so they can help you find the surgery that is right for you.
BioFibre Hair Replacement
This new innovative treatment uses artificial hair implants that are made from a non-reactive, human tissue friendly material. It will give you a completely natural look in a quick and simple to perform procedure. During the procedure you will be in minimal pain and it can be performed in sessions of up to 800-1500 per single session. With no recovery time associated this treatment is perfect for those with a hectic schedule. Prices start from £2,800.
FUE Hair Transplant
The Aesthetic Beauty Centre is one of the few clinics in the North East of England to offer FUE hair transplant. More advanced FUE treatment means hair is extracted directly from the scalp eliminating any need for stitching and reduction in the level of scarring. This minimally invasive surgical procedure can be performed in sessions of up to 500-2000 grafts until the desired density is achieved. Following the treatment, most patients are able to return to work after 3-5 days provided the post-operative instructions are followed. Prices start from £1,600.
FUT Hair Transplant
During the treatment hair is transplanted from the permanent zone (an area where hair currently exists) to an area where balding has occurred. The quality of the hair that is being transplanted during this procedure is of a high standard. The length of the surgical procedure is dependent upon how many grafts are transplanted, small sessions are typically 3 hours whilst your larger sessions can last up to a full day. Following the treatment, patients will be instructed to wear bandages and recovery time is typically 7 days. Prices start from £2,400.
We perform these treatments in both our Newcastle and Harley Street clinics. At the Aesthetic Beauty Centre we are here to help you through the process from start to finish. Our support doesn’t end after the treatment, we will be there to support you throughout your recovery.
