Getting a Hair Transplant in the UK can be a Costly Option Experiencing situations like finding a bunch of hair entangled or finding pillow covered with hair strands as soon as you wake up in the morning can be devastating. According to the clinical researchers, men living in the UK are more likely to be hit by the alopecia or problem of baldness. Various factors such as genetics, nutritional deficiencies, medicines and hormonal

imbalance and therapeutic treatments such as the chemo or laser therapies play a key role in triggering permanent hair loss. Alopecia is stubborn and it can give you a tough time to re-grow hair back without undergoing a hair transplant treatments. Although, your hair transplant surgeon or a doctor may prescribe you topical treatments such as minoxidil and rogaine, in case of permanent baldness, hair transplant treatment is the only method that can help you in cherishing the joy of having a head full of hairs. An increase in the number of people suffering from baldness, it has deeply affected the demand for hair transplant in the United Kingdom. Also, the advanced techniques such as the Follicular Unit Transplant(FUT) and Follicular Unit Extraction(FUE) has made the hair transplant treatments a highly accepted treatment in the country.


The Follicular Unit Transplant or FUT hair transplant is looked upon as one of the most efficient tools of surgical hair restoration. In this technique, the healthy hair follicles are taken out for transferring them from the safe donor zone to an area affected by baldness by harvesting a donor strip from the posterior side of the scalp. The hair roots in the safe donor zone lack receptors for the catalysts of androgen hormones and hence, they remain unaffected form the perils of DHT. To get the hair follicles for transplantation, first of all, a thin and long strip of tissue is taken out surgically, ensuring that it contains required number of hair grafts in it. The harvested strip is then handed over to the technicians working in the cutting room and they ensure that the tissue is stored properly under right conditions. Thereafter, the grafts are dissected under high magnification microscopes to disunite the individual hair follicles from them. Also, they are cleared off any excess layer of the dermis attached to them and are then passed on to an implanter, who ensures a successful transplantation of the prepared hair follicles in a right direction and proper angles. The FUT hair transplant was not appreciated by people who love to wear short hairstyles because of the scar created at the back of the scalp due to the extraction of the skin flap. But, with the introduction of trichophytic closure, the scar now appears as a superfine line and generally goes unnoticed. Whereas, the Follicular Unit Extraction is a newer technique used for hair transplantation and does not encourage harvesting of a donor hair strip. In this method, a hair transplant surgeon uses an electronic punch with a diameter of 0.7mm. The punching tool follows a rotatory motion to dig deep down the layer of skin and reaches the target hair root. Thereafter, the targeted hair root is carefully lifted out by the punching tool and checked that no harm has been done to the hair root. Once the healthy hair root is extracted, it is carefully seeded in one of the slits made on the bald scalp. The FUE Hair Transplant in UK has gained popularity due to non-harvesting of a donor strip and its scar less nature. At the same time, the cost of hair transplant in the United Kingdom is sky-high and forms a matter of concern for the people who wishes to undergo surgical hair restoration. The price per graft ranges from Euro 2 to Euro 5 per graft. On another hand, many hair transplant clinics in India offer best quality hair transplant treatment to foreign patients at an affordable cost, that help them save around 70 to 80 percent of the total cost of treatment quoted by the hair transplant clinics in the UK. Dr. Suneet Soni at Medispa hair transplant clinic in Jaipur, India is an internationally-renowned hair transplant surgeon and is trusted by thousands of people for performing the natural looking hair transplant.
