ABOUT HAIR LOSS IN THE UK
Male Pattern Baldness affects 30% of men in their 30s, and over 50% of men in their 50s.
Hair loss can be distressing, and lead to poor confidence and low self-esteem. At Komao Clinic, Dr. Aman Sharma is a medical expert in hair restoration.
The cause in over 90% of hair loss cases is defined as hair loss at the front, top and/or the crown/vertex of the scalp – known as the non-permanent area. The back and sides of the scalp, where hair usually grows for life, is known as the ‘permanent’ area.
WHAT IS IT?
Hair transplant surgery is the restoration of a fuller, natural-looking head of hair using the client’s own follicles. Hair follicles are removed from parts of the scalp where the hair density is high, and transplanted into the areas where the hair is thin or missing altogether.
Once placed, it requires only normal washing, grooming and cutting.
A hair transplant is undertaken as a minor day case surgical appointment. The process only deals with the surface layers of the skin, the epidermis and dermis, and is carried out under a local anaesthetic.
The first two layers of the skin contain the hair follicles (roots). Every single hair follicle on the human head is genetically programmed either to become sensitive to the male hormone, causing it to die after a time, or to become permanently immune to the withering effects of the male hormone, therefore lasting a lifetime.
These lifetime hairs are found in high density in nearly all men, even those who are severely bald. They are located in a horseshoe-shaped region at the back of the head called the “donor area”. The principle of transplanting hair is to “harvest” the permanent hairs from the donor area and relocate them to the thinning or bald areas elsewhere on the scalp or hairline.
FUE HAIR TRANSPLANT
Our highly skilled hair transplant surgeon takes healthy hair follicles and transplants them into thinning areas, resulting in a dramatically improved cosmetic appearance. Depending on the size of the area of the scalp to be treated, the hair follicles will be harvested using FUE (follicular unit extraction, individual hairs plucked from the scalp one by one).
THE SURGERY AND AFTERCARE
The hair transplants in London are carried out under local anesthetic. This means no overnight stay in hospital is needed, and you can return to the comfort of your own home the same day. The treatment area is anaesthetised and prepared to receive the grafts. A high level of skill and training is needed to ensure the hairs are inserted into the treatment area in such a way as to mimic the natural pattern of hair growth.
To complement the effects of hair transplant surgery, we also prescribe medication for your use at home. These medical treatments stimulate thickened and strengthening of existing hairs, further enhancing the overall appearance of the hair. All follow up appointments with the Komao team are completely free of charge.
