Frequently Asked Questions!

Why choose us?

There are three obvious variants at play here: where you go to get it done, who performs the procedure, and the size of the area you need treating. First, location. Travelling abroad has become popular with men seeking this surgery on the cheap, with options in Thailand, Turkey and India. Unfortunately, as with almost everything in life, you get what you pay for. Better to save up for longer and get something lasting than run the risk of a bodge job, in my opinion. Second, the ‘who’ question. In the Europe and USA, there are countless reputable hair transplant surgeons. Some will charge more based on longevity and reputation, their surgery’s location and how up to date the equipment is that they use. Others will charge less and be just as effective and this is where extensive research comes in. Do your research and weigh up all options. The more reading, the better.

Honestly, you’ll probably be pleasantly surprised. When you read about the procedure, it seems a tad gruesome – but the fact is, there’s no pain with the surgery, just a little discomfort. Think of it like getting a filling done at the dentist. You have anaesthetic so there’s no pain but you may not like being at the dentist. The discomfort comes from being in the chair for up to ten hours for the entire process to be completed, though you will get regular breaks.Post-op, you might experience some mild pain but nothing that your standard painkillers can’t manage for a few days, just like with any minor surgical procedure.

Hair loss can affect everyone at some point in his or her life. Our FUE hair transplant treatment is more popular with men, but this doesn’t mean it can’t help women who are suffering with hair loss.

If you’re a woman suffering with significant hair loss our treatment might be able to help. During a consultation with one of our hair loss specialists we will be able to look into the cause of your hair loss, and let you know if a FUE hair transplant would be beneficial to you.

When it comes to age, you are more likely to be too young for a hair transplant than too old. We get a lot of enquiries from young men who believe they need a hair transplant and that it is best to have one when they are young. This isn’t always the case.

Each individual is different but we believe it is best to wait until you’re a little older to get your hair transplant, when you are young hair loss and hair growth pattern can be irregular and the hair loss can worsen, meaning you could need more than one procedure. As long as you are in good health and are suitable for a hair transplant it is unlikely you would be too old.

Yes, at the Full Hair Plus Clinic we use the most skilful doctors to ensure your hair transplant looks as natural as possible. When we transplant your donor hair into the recipient area we place each graft at an angle that mimics natural hair growth.

As the hair we transplant is from your head once it starts to grow it will blend in naturally with the rest of your hair and will be almost unidentifiable.

Leaving the clinic with a full head of hair straight away would be an absolute dream. Sadly the revolutionary FUE hair transplant procedure still requires a little bit of time and you’ll need to be patient.

Once the hair has been transplanted you will need to allow time for the follicles to grow, this will be just like waiting for your normal hair to grow. You will gradually notice a change in your hair growing and after 3-6 months you’ll see your new, full head of hair.

The hair follicles that are transplanted are genetically-resistant against baldness so they will, in theory, continue to grow over your lifetime. 

When work is done in areas where there is existing hair, you could possibly lose some of those hairs. It’s called ‘shock loss’ and happens especially if the hair is weak and miniaturising (which is why you’re having the work done in the first place). If your hair is too weak, it may not return, but if it’s strong, then it’ll remain.

You’ll generally only need to take it easy for a couple of days after the procedure. Take it easy while allowing your body to recover.

You’ll need a minimum of three weeks out of the loop – or you can wear a hat – due to the healing process, as the surgical area will be red and a little obvious. The area will be shaved down to provide an ideal surgical environment and to protect existing hairs.

After the procedure, the hair grows in very slowly but as time passes, you’ll probably have people asking if you’ve lost weight; they’ll notice ‘something’ but won’t be able to pinpoint the physical change in you, especially if you’ve only had minimal work done.
