Hair surgery and transplants are growing in popularity as the general public have
begun to see the fantastic results surgical grafts can achieve. Here at HGC we are
proud to boast the finest and highly skilled surgeons in the UK who are all registered
and certified with the European and International Hair Restoration Society and the
General Medical Council.
If you are considering surgery then PLEASE beware – do not make the fundamental
mistake many individuals do and fall into the trap of visiting a clinic that solely
offers surgical procedures – it is obviously in their interest to recommend
you that service regardless of whether it is actually suitable for you.
Not every client is suitable for surgical procedures, so a careful diagnosis is
required. We offer free analytical examinations for surgery and indeed all of our
treatments so that we can ascertain whether this is the correct procedure. Surgery
is irreversible, so by seeing one of our specialists who is qualified in ALL types
of hair restoration and treatment, you can ensure you receive the best and most
Sufferers of Male Pattern Baldness will be aware that no matter how advanced the
hair loss, we always manage to keep the hair on our sides and back. This is because
we have two types of hair – our glandular hair, and our hair on top, which
is known as cranial hair. Our glandular hair, being resistant to the causes of hair
loss, remains healthy despite any DHT build-up, and it is therefore possible to
extract follicles from our glandular region as donor hair, and implant it into the
areas of concern.
Hair consists of small pockets or clusters of individual hairs, which are known
as follicular units. A typical follicle is known to produce 2-3 hairs, and our advanced
surgical techniques involve the extraction of individual follicular units using
the FUE procedure. Unlike outdated and old-fashioned techniques such as 'plugs'
or FUT Strip Surgery (which can lead to poor results, scarring, and high recovery
times), our very small individual extractions lead to minimal negatives.
