So you’ve been looking into getting a hair transplant to manage your hair loss? Let’s walk through the patient journey from start to finish with Better Hair Transplant Clinics
Every hair transplant procedure begins with a completely free consultation with one of our hair loss specialists
All you need to do is choose the location that is closest to you (from our range of locations across the country) or undergo a video consultation with one of our team. No matter which option you choose, we operate to the same high standards and level of customer care that we have built our reputation on over the years we have been changing the lives of our patients.
The consultation procedure will allow us to carry out a full assessment of your individual needs and requirements
Hair loss is assessed using something known as the Norwood scale. The Norwood scale is split into seven different stages and is used to measure the severity and pattern of the hair loss, stage 1 on the scale is to have no significant hair loss whereas stage 7 is the most severe stage of hair loss. By combining the Norwood scale with your medical history, we are able to determine the causes of your hair loss and the correct procedure to be used to help you effectively manage this.
Consultations with our team generally last between 30 minutes and an hour, depending on exactly what needs to be covered, and area available at any of our UK locations or via an online video consultation. The lead time for the procedure is as little as two weeks.
The second step of the hair transplant procedure is preparing for the day of your procedure at one of our specialist hair transplant clinics
All of our procedures, no matter which of our incredible clinics they are performed at, are carried out with the utmost level of care and support. The staff who will be present on the day are on hand to support you through every step of the journey, from talking you through the procedure and any last minute queries or worries you may have, to providing you with aftercare help and advice. Our surgical teams have carried out thousands of hair transplant procedures and are heavily experienced in all aspects of hair transplantation.
Every patient is treated as a VIP, from the initial consultation through to completing the aftercare and seeing your results. We recommend that any patients stay at a hotel close to the surgical clinic on the night prior to the hair transplant procedure to ensure that you’re able to arrive in a calm and relaxed state on the day of the surgery. We’re able to arrange everything for you, from the hotel stay to organising transport to the clinic on the day of the operation. We find that some of our patients opt for the hotel stay on the night following their procedure too, but this is entirely up to the patient.
Let's take a walk through a standard hair transplant procedure
Be welcomed by your surgical team when you arrive at the clinic
On the day of your surgery, you should arrive at the chosen clinic before 9am, and depending on the exact surgery required and number of grafts needed, you should be ready to leave between 4pm to 7pm on the same day. On arrival, you will be greeted by your surgical team and they will run you through the plan for your surgical procedure. Please ask any questions or raise any issues that you have at any point from arrival throughout the entire day.
Undergo a pre-surgery check and take the medication provided
During the pre-surgery checks, you’ll need to fill out a series of forms which include your consent form and a general health questionnaire. Once these are complete, you will be taken for the initial checks (such as heart rate and blood pressure) before being given medication to mitigate the risk of infection and reduce the amount of swelling. At this point, you will be ready for surgery and will be taken to a private room to change into your medical gown.
Your hair is then prepared to undergo the transplant surgery
Generally, a shaven head is the quickest way to be able to optimise the amount of hair that is able to be transplanted, but it isn’t the only option. The area to be treated will always be shaved to aid the transplant procedure, but depending on the style that you are looking to maintain after the transplant you may be able to have a different hair cut during preparation. Please ask our team as they will be able to assist you with this.
The procedure doesn't take long, but the results last a lifetime
Your hair transplant has now been carried out, so what happens next?
Now your hair transplant procedure is complete, your hair will be left clean and prepared to leave the clinic. You’ll be able to change back into your regular clothes and relax with a drink whilst you await your post-op instructions and aftercare advice. The surgical team will go through these instructions in detail and answer any questions that you have, you’ll be provided with all of the aftercare supplies you need and you will then be able to leave.
We pride ourselves on the quality of the aftercare that we provide to all of our patients
We don’t stop with our duty of care once the surgery has been completed and we pride ourselves on the high level of aftercare that we are able to provide to all of the patients who come to us. We’ve built a reputation on the level of service we provide, from the initial consultation through to the years after you’ve had your surgery.
Even after you leave the clinic, we’re available at any time to help support you and answer any questions that you may have. We’ll check in with follow ups and you’ll be asked to come in for review appointments with us so that we can track the progress of your new hair growth. These are generally performed after a period of 1, 6, 9 and 12 months when you should be able to see your final results. We’re here to support and help you on your hair loss journey, and are with you every step of the way through your recovery.
