Hair transplants before and after images – Results

Hair transplant is a cosmetic procedure aimed at covering and filling out balding areas by transplanting the patient’s own hair. It can address both hereditary and non-hereditary forms of hair loss, such as scarring hair loss. The procedure relies on the fact that not all hair is typically lost during hair loss, especially the sides and back of the head, which are often resistant to the hormone DHT responsible for hair loss. Hair follicles are usually harvested from these resistant areas and transplanted to the balding areas. This essentially involves transplanting the patient’s own hair.

After the procedure, transplanted hair initially begins to grow, but it undergoes a natural shedding process after a few weeks. However, the follicles remaining in the skin regenerate quickly, and new hair growth typically resumes within three months at a rate of approximately 1 centimeter per month. The final results become visible after about 8-12 months. Importantly, the transplanted hair is generally unaffected by DHT, which is often the underlying cause of hair loss, making the results of a hair transplant usually permanent.

Hair transplants before and after

Please check our real life hair transplant results and before and after images / photos of the past 12 months. We can provide you hundreds of similar images from our patients. We do about 2500 hair grafts only in 2 days usually to save your donor area integrity and health.

A second session is possible in a year’s time in most of the cases (provided you have enough hair in the donor area). Do not fall for offers of 2500 grafts or above – Turkish hair clinics often use blatant marketing techniques and talk male patients into unhealthy solutions. You pay less than Ł4,000 in our clinic in Budapest, Hungary to get 2500 grafts implanted.

When looking at before and after images of hair transplants, some things to look for include:

  • The overall density and fullness of the hair: The after image should show an increase in the number of hairs in the treated area.
  • The naturalness of the hairline: The hairline should look natural and not artificial.
  • The overall symmetry and balance of the hair: The hair should be distributed evenly and proportionately.
  • The appearance of the donor area: The donor area should be well-hidden and not noticeable.
  • The overall appearance of the scalp: The scalp should look healthy and natural.
  • The age of the pictures, The newer the pictures the better idea of the results you will get.

It’s also important to keep in mind that every patient is unique, and the results of a hair transplant can vary depending on factors such as the patient’s hair type, the skill and experience of the surgeon, and the number of grafts used.

A successful hair transplant result is one that:

  • Provides a natural-looking hairline: The hairline should be designed to match the patient’s facial features and age, and should look natural, not artificial.
  • Increases overall density and fullness: The treated area should have a significant increase in the number of hairs, resulting in a fuller, more youthful appearance.
  • Is symmetrical and balanced: The hair should be distributed evenly and proportionately, creating a balanced and natural-looking result.
  • Does not result in noticeable scarring: The donor area should be well-hidden, with minimal scarring that is not noticeable.
  • Looks healthy and natural: The scalp should look healthy, with hair that is well-nourished and easy to style.
  • The transplanted hair will grow naturally and will not fall out again, providing a long-term solution to hair loss.

It’s also important to keep in mind that hair transplantation is a surgical procedure and like any other surgery, it can have risks and side effects. It’s important to consult with an experienced and board-certified surgeon to understand the risks and benefits of the procedure, and to have realistic expectations about the results.

Q&A – All you need to know about hair transplant surgery

What type of hair transplant procedure do you offer?

We offer Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) hair transplant procedures. FUE involves harvesting individual hair follicles from the donor area and transplanting them into the recipient area, resulting in natural-looking hair growth.

What are the costs per hair or per follicular unit graft, and are there any potential additional expenses?

The cost per follicular unit graft typically ranges from £2 to £8, depending on various factors such as the clinic, surgeon’s expertise, and the number of grafts required. Additional expenses may include pre-operative tests, medications, and post-operative care products.

What are the possible complications associated with the procedure?

While hair transplant procedures are generally safe, potential complications may include infection, bleeding, scarring, numbness, and in rare cases, folliculitis or shock loss. It’s essential to discuss these risks with your surgeon before undergoing the procedure.

When will the results become visible after the surgery?

Initial results are typically visible within 3 to 6 months after the surgery as the transplanted hair begins to grow. However, full results may take up to 12 to 18 months to become apparent as the hair continues to mature and thicken.

What post-treatment care is required for optimal results?

Post-treatment care may include following specific instructions provided by your surgeon, such as avoiding strenuous activities, protecting the scalp from sunlight, and using prescribed medications to promote healing and prevent infection. Regular follow-up appointments are also essential to monitor progress.

How long must patients stay abroad before returning to the UK after the procedure?

The duration of stay abroad depends on individual circumstances and the surgeon’s recommendations. Typically, patients may need to stay abroad for about 3 to 7 days for initial recovery and follow-up appointments before returning to the UK.

Can you provide references from previous patients who have undergone the same procedure?

Yes, we can provide references from previous patients who have undergone FUE hair transplant procedures with our clinic. These references can offer insights into their experiences, results, and satisfaction with the treatment.

If the cost includes a holiday ‘package,’ are there any hidden expenses or contingencies for changing one’s mind about the procedure or the trip?

It’s essential to clarify all aspects of the holiday package, including what is included in the cost and any potential hidden expenses or contingencies for changing one’s mind. This may include cancellation policies, additional fees for changes to the itinerary, or refunds for unforeseen circumstances. Transparency is key, and we aim to provide clear information to our patients to ensure a positive experience.
