At UK Hairline, we take great pride in the trust that both patients and surgeons place in us and we see it as our duty to uphold the highest of standards in the information that we provide. 

What are the common causes of hair loss? 

Genetics often play a key role in hair loss. A history of hair loss on either side of a person’s family increases their risk of hair loss. Other factors, however, such as vitamin deficiencies, severe illness or malnutrition can also contribute to hair loss. 

Do hair transplants work? 

Yes. Healthy hair follicles that are not affected by genetics are simply transferred to another part of the head during a hair transplant. These follicles will pick up the natural blood supply of the scalp and continue to grow, retaining their own characteristics, colour, texture, and growth rate. 

Are hair transplants painful? 

Some discomfort may be experienced during the initial stage of hair transplant surgery, when the injections of local anaesthetic are administered, often described as a sharp stinging sensation. The anaesthetic is fast-acting and, once administered, there should be no further pain. 

What will I look like after hair transplant surgery? 

Your scalp will be thoroughly cleaned immediately after hair transplant surgery and the grafted areas will look slightly red. You may start to notice some scabbing within the next 48 hours, this is the body’s way of protecting the newly implanted hair follicles, and it will present for approximately 7 to 10 days. 
You should be fully healed within 2 to 3 weeks. 

What is the cost of a hair transplant? 

The cost of a hair transplant in the UK is highly variable. Many hair transplant clinics charge per graft, which can be confusing. 
At UK Hairline, we are transparent about pricing from the offset. Only after a consultation with one of our experienced hair transplant surgeons can an exact cost be provided, which is based on the unique circumstances of the individual.
