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.

At Head Quarters – the most comprehensive hair loss clinic in South Wales and South West England – we strive to restore your youthful looks and your confidence. Hair loss is unique to each individual – the layout of your hair, general health and amount of follicles all contribute to your personal requirements. Hair loss is generally caused when the follicles become damaged or weakened and are, therefore, unable to continue producing hairs.

Science and technology have advanced to such an extent in the past decade that we are now able offer patients the most natural looking hair transplants. This is done by relocating healthy follicles and their associated stem cells to areas of hair loss. Weakened follicles can also be stimulated into producing healthy hair using adjuvant treatments, such as Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and advanced and approved medications.

HQ Head Quarters offers:

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 booking a consultation – either by live video or face-to-face – is your best next step, even if you aren’t entirely sure if a hair transplant is for you.

Are Hair Transplants Permanent?

Long lasting results are always at the forefront of our minds at Head Quarters. The transplanted 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 process or help prevent it. To achieve optimum results, it’s important to consider the advice of your Head Quarters hair loss specialist, for example a course of medication may be suitable. Patients that follow this guidance often have the best results with longevity.

We take the hair from the back of the scalp, known as the ‘’safe zone or donor area’’. This hair is typically much more hard wearing and long lasting than the hair at the top of the scalp, due to its genetics.

Having harvested the follicles from that location, we design your new hairline and plan the grafts with the future in mind. This is so as you age it still maintains the most natural appearance. This level of science, artistry and finite detail is paramount for all Hair Transplants.

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 book 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?
