FUT Hair Transplant
At The Wimpole Clinic, our hair replacement specialists each have many years of experience providing outstanding, totally natural-looking hair transplants. Our Principal, Mr. Michael May, was instrumental in developing this revolutionary FUT technique which now continues to benefit thousands of satisfied clients.
This technique and our FUE transplant are now the mainstay of hair restoration surgery in the UK and worldwide.
The FUT Hair Transplant Procedure
The first step in this procedure is the removal of the donor strip from the recipient site in a way that ensures both minimal damage to the donor hairs and minimal scarring to the donor area after which the tissue is sutured together using a trichophytic closure. This technique helps limit any scar that develops in the donor area because it allows hair to grow through the scar minimising its visibility.
Skill and efficiency is required to “sliver” the donor tissue under a microscope into thin sections only 1-2 hairs wide. No trauma or transection occurs when done correctly. Next the slivers are cut down into the individual 1-4 hair follicular unit grafts and trimmed of as much excess tissue as safely possible. The trimming creates the smallest possible graft, which enables us to use the smallest possible incision. This, in turn, means less trauma and better graft survival.
Creating The Recipient Sites
Whilst the grafts are being prepared the surgeon is creates the recipient sites. This means the surgeon has to be able to make thousands of tiny incisions in such a way that will ensure maximum survival of the grafts and, minimal trauma to pre-existing hair.
Every Wimpole Clinic patient is provided with an aftercare pack that contains information on how to look after your transplanted hair. In addition to this, your aftercare pack will also contain specialist products such as shampoos that will aid in the healing and recovery process.
We also include:
- 3 day post procedure visit for a hair wash
- 24 hour surgical hot line for aftercare
- Advice on types of shampoo
- Hair blood test
