Hair Transplant Surgery – The procedure

Hair transplants involve removing permanent hair-bearing skin from the back and/or sides of the scalp.

Using stereoscope microscopic dissection, the tissue is dissected into follicular unit grafts (containing 1-4 hairs) and multi-follicular unit grafts (containing 3-6 hairs each).

These microscopic grafts are then meticulously planted into the bald or thinning area of the scalp at the same exact angle as other hairs.

The microscopic follicular unit grafts enables Dr Shahmalak to create very natural, feathered hairlines, which do not have the abrupt, “pluggy look” that was common in hair transplants in the UK in recent years.

Depending on the degree of balding in the frontal, mid-scalp, and vertex (crown) areas, usually 2-3 procedures are performed.

Within 24 hours small crusts form on each graft that is shed in around 4-14 days. The grafted hairs start to grow 10-16 weeks after the procedure.
