FUE Hair Transplant in Hertfordshire

FUE hair transplants are becoming increasingly popular, being the most advanced surgical hair loss treatment. Here we explain what a FUE transplant is, whether it’s permanent and more.

What is a FUE hair transplant?

Follicular unit extraction (FUE) is the most advanced hair transplant procedure available and often favoured by clients because it is minimally invasive, leaving little to no scarring.

In FUE hair transplants, hair follicles are taken from the patient’s donor area and relocated to the transplant area using a microsurgery technique, with new hairs beginning to grow about 4-5 months after surgery and continuing up to 18 months.

While hair grafts will naturally shed somewhat early on, over the following 10-15 months these new hairs will grow and thicken, eventually acting as your other hair would.

The FUE process

In FUE, natural groups of 1-4 hairs are harvested from the head and transplanted to the area of your scalp where you are experiencing hair loss. Donor sites tend to be from the sides or back of the head, with hair follicles then being implanted into the new site. Careful consideration of hair volume, angle and colouring is taken to ensure the best possible hair match to cover balding areas and achieve the fullest, most natural look.

Went for a consultation and was certainly impressed to the high level this clinic was setup, state of the art equipment and outstanding customer service will definitely recommend.

My consultation was with Dr Alam, who took the time to review my concerns & provide professional caring advice. I would certainly recommend Aventus Clinic.

I wanted to share my story. I have tried various products and oils to help the thinning of my hair. After my treatment the hair has begun to grow much more efficiently and I can already feel the root of the hair to be stronger and much healthier. Aventus Clinic has truly changed my life! Within minutes of arriving at the clinic I was made to feel welcome and put at ease from an extremely professional and down to earth team. All the anxiety that had built up had dropped straight away. My thoughts were in keeping the procedure to myself but now my mind has most definitely changed to which I will be recommending Aventus Clinic for basically giving me a new lease of life. I have got to say that there would not be enough words to put in this letter to explain my experience.

I had my hair transplant with Dr Alam, so far I have seen very positive results and should expect to see full results within 12-18 months. The biggest peace of mind was Dr Alam having considerable experience in hair transplants here in the UK, being correctly registered and going through a fantastic process of multiple consultations prior, during and after the surgery. Dr Alam was always a phone call or a WhatsApp message away and provided assurances throughout. Big thank you to him and his team ! I would happily recommend Dr Alam for FUE hair transplant.

I had FUE hair transplant under the care and supervision of Dr Alam. I am very pleased with my results a year on since surgery. The consultation pre and post op was excellent, all my questions were answered, Dr Alam was very diligent in planning the op based on my needs and requirements. Very professional and great post op follow up and care. Would highly recommend.

It was just over 6 months after my hair transplant when I wasn’t noticing significant visible change that I was satisfied with when I contacted you. There was growth in some areas but not as much as I was hoping to see. It was at this time when I visited you for further consultation. You reassured me growth takes time especially in areas where there hadn’t been hair growth for awhile and you recommended a series of PRP treatment would help boost growth. I felt confident you would be administering the PRP treatment given your extensive background as a medical doctor. After a series of PRP treatment with you, I could see significant hair growth. I am extremely grateful for your advise and medical support not just for my hair growth but for helping me develop my confidence and self esteem at a time in my life when my hair lose was causing much stress and anxiety. My mental well-being has increased tremendously since your successful PRP treatment and support. Thank you so much for everything.

Is a FUE hair transplant permanent?

FUE hair transplants are permanent in that transplanted hair follicles will maintain their quality even when transplanted to an area of hair loss.

This hair can be treated in the same way as the rest of your other hair in every aspect from washing it to cutting it.

Will I need more than one FUE hair transplant procedure?

While FUE hair transplants are ‘permanent’, the main difficulty with hair loss is that it is typically an ongoing issue, meaning that while your transplanted hair will remain, other hair around this area may continue to thin. In these cases you might then wish to have a further FUE hair transplant to allow you to regrow these other areas of hair loss.

Typically, patients are willing to have further FUE hair transplants to replace hair that is lost from other areas of the scalp after their initial surgery. However, as we are limited by our sources of donor hair to use in transplants, maintenance of existing hair is integral to slowing overall hair loss. Using hair loss medications and serums alongside your FUE hair transplant is therefore vital to preventing further thinning and sustaining hair in the long-term.

Equally, while advanced methods mean that we are able to transplant hair in greater volume, it is often impossible to achieve the volume of the original hair. This is due to the fact that concentrated incisions would leave too much trauma to the scalp, preventing the skin and hair from healing well. Because of this, it is common to have more than one FUE hair transplant over your journey to hair restoration, with this helping clients achieve a fuller appearance.

What is the difference
between FUE and FUT?

During FUT the surgeon removes a section of skin from the back of the head and obtains hair follicles from this for the transplant.

However, the nature of this procedure means that it can leave a rather specific type of scar along the back of the head where the area of skin has been taken from.However, FUE hair transplants are a much less invasive procedure than FUT, with individual hair follicles instead being taken directly from the scalp. Often, hair donor follicles are taken from the back of the neck and relocated to the new section of the scalp so as to create a similar pattern to the hair that previously grew there. The best thing about FUE is that it leaves minimal scarring, with recovery time being days as opposed to the multiple weeks that it can take for FUT scars to fully heal. 

On the whole, many patients prefer the FUE hair transplant method to FUT, with it being a less painful, more effective and refined procedure and allowing clients to achieve a more natural result.

Is FUE painful?

One of the reasons that FUE is so popular is because it is much less invasive than something like FUT. A local anesthetic is administered for the procedure, with a majority of clients experiencing no pain at all despite being conscious.

While you may experience some minor discomfort during your first few days of recovery, this is minimal and the potential for further health complications following FUE is very low.

Should I have a FUE hair transplant?

The best treatment for your hair loss will depend on a number of factors like the pattern of your hair thinning and your family history. However, one of the key things that makes you an ideal candidate for the procedure is having enough hair growth at the back and sides of the head to ensure there are enough hair follicles to act as a donor. Likewise, other elements like texture and colour will impact the final appearance.
