HAIR TRANSPLANT FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q. Is this a painful procedure?
A. Local anaesthetic permits painless removal of grafts and the re-siting of grafts in their new permanent area.
q. Is theRE a possibility of scarring?
A. There is no possibility. This idea is simply scaremongering by company's who only provide Hair Replacement Products and has no foundation.
The original hair transplant was was a technique called punch grafting. It was successful but not as totally natural looking as follicular mini grafting which was introduced by our surgeon Dr. Michael May almost 20 years ago.
In the seventies and early eighties, punch grafting was practised world-wide and a small number of patients had unsatisfactory results due to
(a) being accepted for treatment when they were not suitable
(b) being treated by an unskilled practitioner
(c) treatment was not as strictly regulated as it is today.
Now every aspect is considered before you will be accepted. During your initial free consultation your suitability will be assessed. A prognosis will then be given of your expectations and the cost of the procedure and we will then arrange a
private consultation with our surgeon. Your complete satisfaction is paramount to us as it has been since 1976.
Q. How frequently may the operation be performed
A. It is preferable that 3-6 months is allowed between sessions to permit the blood supply to become established.
Q. How should the patient prepare himself for the operation?
A. Very little preparation is necessary. The patient should shampoo the hair the night before, get a good nights rest, avoid over indulgence in food or drink but eat a normal breakfast. A mild tranquilliser may be prescribed for the apprehensive patient before the first procedure.
Q. Should I have a haircut immediately before the operation?
A. This depends on the length of your normal hairstyle and you will be advised during your FREE consultation.
Q. What medical conditions should the physician know about?
A. The patient should tell the physician of any unusual physical conditions and particularly any history of abnormal bleeding, haemophilia, epilepsy, allergic reactions to drugs or any drugs being taken to thin the blood.
Q. what happens when the patient leaves the clinic?
A. No bandage is worn, the recipient area is washed on the third day. patients may usually resume their normal activities the next day, unless this involves strenuous exertion.
Q. Can a hairpiece be worn after the operation?
A. If you already wear a hairpiece - yes.
Q. How long will transplanted hair last?
A. The transplants that we performed 35 years ago in our Bath Street Clinic are still growing today. The comedian and entertainer Clem Dane had our punch graft technique in 1976. The hair is still growing today and he calls in to have his hair cut regularly.
