What is meant by Hair Transplant?

Hair Transplant is a surgical procedure where hair follicles are transplanted from one part of the body to the scalp or face of a patient. The part of the body from which the follicles are taken is called the donor site and the part of the scalp or face where follicles are placed is called the recipient site.

Is Hair Transplant permanent?

Hair transplants are usually permanent, as the translanted follicles are taken from areas where hair loss will not occur. Patients may experience hair loss in other areas of their scalp or face but in not the recipient site. The transplanted hair will fall out after the surgery, but will grow back within about six months. Surgeons usually prescribe medications to strengthen hair follicles to prevent the loss of non-transplanted hair after the surgery.

How long does it take to recover from Hair Transplant surgery?

Recovering from a hair transplantation procedure depends on the type of procedure. Patients may take many weeks to recover from an FUT, or strip type, hair transplantation procedure while recovery from an FUE type of hair transplantation surgery takes about a week.

What are the different types of Hair Transplant?

Types of hair transplantation procedures include FUSS, FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation) or the strip method, where a strip of tissue is removed from the scalp and then hair is transplanted in groups of one to four units called follicular units, the minimally invasive FUE method where a hole is made in the donor site with a punch and single hair follicles are taken from the donor site and placed in the recipient site. The ARTAS method is a robotic hair transplantation procedure that performs the FUE hair transplantation procedure faster than traditional hair transplantation procedures.

Very impressed with the service I receivedDesiree, Centurion, 21 04 16

I originally went to Dr Nel intending to have derma fillers but after a thorough explanation of how the skin is constructed and how the ageing process takes place he helped me find the right treatment for my skin and my specific problems. He explained everything very clearly and was most helpful. He never tried to force me into anything or pressed me into any treatment. He gave his expert knowledge and advice freely and I'm most grateful and very impressed with the service I received. I would highly recommend Dr Nel to anyone wanting facial rejuvenation. The clinic was lovely, modern,clean and highly professional. A lovely place and a good environment for it's purposes.I received a warm, friendly welcome and was treated with the utmost respect. Would definitely go back.
