Why Choose A Hair Transplant?

Quite simply, hair restoration surgery is the only permanent and efficient solution when it comes to hair loss. The results are undetectable, as the FUE hair transplant method of hair transplant results in beautiful, natural looking hair growth. The process is simple. Our surgeons graft healthy hair follicles from the back and sides of the head onto the bald or thinning areas of the head. As a result of hair transplant, the appearance of the hair and the hairline looks better.

What Are The Different Methods To Restore Hair Growth?

Extracting follicles from the donor site is known as hair ‘harvesting’. There are two different ways to harvest follicles:

  • FUT (also known as ‘Strip’) in which first a strip of skin is removed from the back and sides of the head under local anaesthesia. Then the clinician individually extracted the grafts from the strip. Finally, the grafts are transplanted into the affected areas of thinning hair.
  • FUE (follicular unit extraction) hair transplant uses a small round punch to extract the hair follicles one by one from an area of dense hair growth, and then applies them to an area of baldness. FUE hair transplant is the latest and the most advanced method, and is carried out in 90% of cases.
  • FUE HD (Follicular Unit Extraction High Density) is Epilum’s exclusive technique, developed to obtain high capillary density for a natural, permanent and undetectable result.

Hair Transplant for Men and Women

While most patients are men, it is not uncommon for women to experience hair loss. 75% of men and 35% of women suffer from baldness. A hair transplant can be the best hair loss treatment for both male and female hair loss.
