How Hair Transplants Work

For many men, hair loss can mean insecurity and a blow to our self-esteem. Head Quarters offer the most comprehensive option in South Wales and South West England to restore your youthful looks and have you feeling yourself again.

An important 2011 study on male hair loss study found that the primary cause of male pattern baldness is that as we age, stem cells in the scalp lose the ability to develop into the type of cells that make hair follicles.

Hair loss is, of course, unique to each individual with the layout of your hair, general health and amount of follicles all making a difference. Hair loss is generally caused when the follicles become damaged or weakened and therefore unable to continue producing hairs.

Technology and science have advanced so much in the past ten years that we are now able to offer patients the most incredible looking and feeling hair transplants, by relocating healthy follicles and their associated stem cells to areas of hair loss. Weakened follicles can also be stimulated into producing healthy hair with adjuvant treatments such as Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and medications.

HQ Head Quarters offers:

Step 3: Results

Thanks to our efforts in recruiting some of the most talented and dedicated staff, your results will be the best we can achieve for your hair loss and hair growth goals.

Are Hair Transplants Effective?

The bottom line, is YES!

However, the level to which we will achieve this success does vary slightly depending on the quality, quantity of your hair follicles, which is why the first consultation is so important.

Side Effects of a Hair Transplant

The only incisions involved in a Hair transplant are microscopic, so they heal extremely quickly and any form of side effects are incredibly rare. A combination of our surgeons skill and our techniques means that any scaring is barely detectable.

If you do experience side effects, our aftercare program will be able to clear them up in a week or two, leaving you free to enjoy your hair.

Here are some of the unlikely side effects you may experience:

  • Sore scalp
  • Itching
  • Temporary loss of transplanted hair (this won’t affect the follicles and is nothing to worry about!)
  • Inflammation/ Swelling
  • Unnatural tufts of hair (this will sort itself out as the other follicles begin to produce hair)
  • Some people can react to the local anaesthetic in the same way as when they have an anaesthetic injection at the dentist. This is very rare.

Should I get a Hair Transplant?

If you are a man suffering from male pattern baldness or anyone who has lost hair due to a head injury or burn then we would suggest there is no better way to get your hair growing how it should be and win back your confidence and youthful looks… so yes!

There are some situations where a hair transplant might not be the best way forward for you, however. This is mainly based around your hair follicles and if there are enough in a good enough location for us to achieve the results you desire.

This will be identified in our free consultation which is why attending a consultation is your best next step, even if you aren’t entirely sure if a hair transplant is for you.

Are Hair Transplants Permanent?

Permanent hair loss necessitates a permanent solution, and there is no more permanent solution than a hair transplant procedure from Head Quarters.

The hairs are expected to last a lifetime, however baldness can progress in the hair we have not transplanted, we can advise you on how to slow this down or prevent it.

This is why it was so important for us to hire some of the leading hair transplant surgeons in the UK.

Hair from the back of the scalp is typically much more hard wearing and long lasting than the hair at the top of the scalp.

This is why we harvest the follicles from that location and as a result, we design your new hairline and plan the grafts with the future in mind. So that they grow along what would have been your natural hairline and so that the hair grows in the most natural direction.

Hair Transplant Cost

Ok, so you’ve read up on the whole site and are sure this is the best move to restore your hairline and self-esteem.

We’re sure your next question is:

How much does a hair transplant cost?

Unfortunately, it’s a little difficult to give an accurate amount here because the cost varies a lot depending on the amount of hair being replanted and the follicles we have to work with.

For this reason, we would recommend you attend a free consultation which allows us to give you an accurate cost based on your unique situation.

It is also worth mentioning that we offer finance options meaning our procedures are affordable for almost any budget, so why not come visit us and see what we can do for you?
