Hair restoration surgery has improved vastly over the past five years and as a result it has become an incredibly popular procedure. Nowadays hair transplants can permanently restore the hair of men and women with partial baldness by transplanting new follicles into balding or thinning areas. Specialists deem a transplant successful when 85 to 95 percent of transplanted roots grow new hair. At Junomedical we partner with the most experienced hair transplant surgeons around the world. These specialists offer FUE hair transplants – the latest hair transplantation technique – at up to 80% less than the average cost in the UK, US and Australia.
At some of our partner clinics the price is dependent on the number of hairs being transplanted, others have a fixed rate whether you need 2000 or 5000 grafts. You’ll be able to choose from a variety of skilled surgeons many of whom attained their medical qualifications from UK and US medical schools, have won awards, and are members of prestigious associations.
During the treatment you’ll be given a local anesthetic and depending on the size of the area you’re having treated the procedure will take between 4 and 8 hours. The hospitals we work with offer follicular unit extraction (FUE) and unlike the traditional technique which involves removing a strip of the scalp where follicles are plentiful, with FUE each follicular unit is removed one at a time. It’s a more time consuming process, but one that avoids the linear scar from the donor site and involves a quicker recovery period. Following the FUE hair transplant procedure, you can return to work/social activity after 4 days when the swelling has subsided but there are usually visible scabs and redness at the recipient sites which will usually subside around 10-14 days after the procedure.
The procedure is recommended for anyone who wants a permanent, natural-looking solution to partial baldness. You could have male pattern baldness, receding hairlines, traction alopecia or trauma to the hair. Hair transplants are not, however, recommended for diffuse female pattern balding, alopecia areata (spot baldness) or for those with insufficient hair at the donor site.
