An Introduction to Surgical Hair restoration

Welcome to Aesthetica - Our state-of-the-art plastic surgery clinic treating hair loss in men and women.

We are the region's most experienced hair restoration office utilising the latest surgical treatment for hair loss - Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) and Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) - Strip technique.

Our facility is based on the principle of personalised care for all our clients. Our hair transplant surgeon, Dr Suhael Zahur, is personally involved in the pre-operative, intra-operative and post-operative care of our patients unlike many of the clinics where the hair surgeon is absent and hair technicians perform the surgical procedure. He personally harvests hair follicles and performs all hair surgical procedures. Our philosophy and approach is the reason why our facility holds the trust of many fellow physicians seeking hair restoration surgery.

Methods Of Harvesting Hair Follicles - FUT vs. FUE

Currently there are two primary surgical techniques used for performing hair transplantation- FUT (STRIP) and FUE. With the FUT Strip technique, a strip of hair bearing skin is excised from the back of the scalp. Next, the hair follicles or hair grafts are dissected out individually from this strip under magnification and inserted into tiny slits placed by the surgeon in the balding recipient area. The follicles with a single hair are placed in the front rows to define and create a natural hairline. The more dense natural occurring folllicular units are placed in areas where hair density is needed the most. .The donor site is brought together with either sutures or staples

With FUE, a 0.8 mm punch is used to score and loosen the hair follicles from the surrounding tissues. The small naturally occurring hair follicle units are then extracted directly from the scalp and placed into tiny slits in the balding area similar to the FUT method.

Frequently Asked Questions
  • How does HAIR TRANSPLANT work?
  • Hair transplant involves extraction of hair follicles from the back of the scalp and their subsequent implantation into the bald areas. Though the techniques utilised for follicle extraction may vary, they are only secondary to the skills and artistry of the hair transplant surgeon which are the most important factor for a successful hair transplant surgery

  • Is Hair restoration Surgery Safe?
  • From a surgical standpoint, all Hair restoration surgeries are very safe and done under local anaesthesia. It is considered a relatively minor ambulatory surgical procedure with minimal risks. There are rarely complications and your doctor easily treats any that may occur.

  • Is Hair Transplantation Painful?
  • Hair Transplant surgery is a minimally invasive procedure conducted under local anaesthesia. Our team ensures that your experience at Aesthetica clinic is pleasant and comfortable.

  • When Can I Go Back To Work?
  • It is often possible to go back to work within a couple of days after the hair transplant.

  • When Will My Newly Transplanted Hair Start To Grow?
  • There is no difference between the STRIP and FUE techniques as far as the growth of the transplanted hair follicles. Normally it takes between three to five months following surgery before the transplanted hair follicles begin to grow new hair. Results will vary from one to another and it may take up to twelve months for the hair follicle to grow.

  • How Many Sessions Will Be Required?
  • The total balding surface area to be covered with transplanted hair grafts will determine the total number of grafts you need. The average scalp contains 100,000 follicles before any hair loss occurs. Hair loss is not perceived by patients until approximately 50% of the hair follicles are lost. At Aesthetica clinic, our staff is able to harvest 2000+ grafts in a single surgical session/day. Our day starts at 0800 hours and we typically end the day between 5-6 pm.

  • Will It Really Look Natural?
  • Natural aesthetic outcomes are typical with both FUE and Strip procedures. The artistry and attention to detail of the Hair restoration surgeon at Aesthetica clinic is our promise to you as a patient.
