Many Patients opt for the latest FUE method of hair transplantation. The FUE method delivers perfectly natural results that can take years off your appearance. The hairs are implanted with considerable density giving thicker looking hair. Perhaps one of the main advantages of the FUE method that our patients like most is that there are no sutures to have after the procedure. This results in a generally faster recovery. With the FUE method you don’t have a line scar across the back of the head.
It’s important that you choose the right surgeon. Hair transplantation requires considerable skill and you can be reassured of being treated by a fully qualified hospital consultant at Moorgate Aesthetics.
Why Undergo Hair Transplantation?
Losing your hair at any time can have a devastating effect on your confidence. Losing it early in life such as your early twenties can be truly devastating and we see so many men whose lives seem to be “on hold” because of the effect that hair loss is having on them.
There are medications that can help prevent hair loss and perhaps help thicken up what you have left. However, if you have lost a considerable amount of hair then the only real way of getting that back to its former glory is a hair transplant.
How Does The FUE Procedure Work?
FUE stands for follicular unit extraction. Hair is taken from the back and /or sides and transplanted into the thinning or bald area. The procedure is done under local anaesthetic. In most cases clients have more than enough hair at the back of the head to replace lost hair on top, without any detection at the back of the head, this area is called the donor area.
The FUE Hair Transplant Results
Your new hair will start to regrow between three and six months later. It will grow just as it did at the back of the head. The same colour, same rate – just the same as before! All you will need to do going forward it get it cut and styled.
We can recreate a lost hairline and cover a bald patch on the crown – it’s up to you!
Because we use a local anesthetic you can go home after the procedure. Allow a week for recover time as you are likely to get some swelling to the operated area at first.
The Medical Team
Dr Ali has a special team around him that assist him during your hair transplant procedure. The FUE grafts are specially prepared before placing in the recipient area. The whole process is very organised and controlled to ensure maximum growth of your newly implanted hair.
A hair transplant is not a cheap procedure. However, when the hair has been transplanted that’s it. You will not need to have any other treatment. The hair will keep growing even in the area where hair has previously fallen out. In recent years hair transplants have enjoyed a revolution as famous celebrities have taken the plunge and decided to get their hair back.

Comparisons with follicular unit transplantation (FUT)
Follicular unit extraction generally has a quicker patient recovery time, along with significantly lower post-operative discomfort than Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT). FUE provides an alternative to FUT when the scalp is too tight for a strip excision and enables a hair transplant surgeon to harvest finer hair from the nape of the neck to be used at the hairline or for eyebrows.
However, with FUE, the follicles are harvested from a much greater area of the donor zone compared to FUT, estimated to be eight times greater than that of traditional strip excision so requires patients to have hairs trimmed in a much larger donor area. As a result, the hair in the lower and upper parts of the donor area, where the grafts were taken from, may thin and this can make the donor scars visible. Follicles harvested from borderline areas of the donor region may not be truly “permanent,” so that over time, the transplanted hair may be lost.
Maximum follicular unit graft yield is lower than with FUT and may result in greater follicular transection (damage). Due to the scarring and distortion of the donor scalp from FUE it makes subsequent sessions more difficult, and grafts are more fragile and subject to trauma during placing, since they often lack the protective dermis and fat of microscopically dissected grafts, ultimately which may result in poor growth. A problem of buried grafts can occur during the blunt phase of the three-step technique when the graft is pushed into fat and must be removed through a small incision. FUE can also be more expensive and take longer to perform than FUT, so grafts are usually out of the body longer, risking sub-optimal growth.
