There are two types of hair transplant methods: FUT (Follicular Unit Transplant) and FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction). A personalised consultation with one of UK Hairline’s hair restoration specialists will help to determine the best option for you.

FUT (Follicular Unit Transplant) 

Also referred to as the ‘strip’ method, the FUT hair transplant method involves removing a strip of skin tissue from the back or sides of the head and extracting individual hair follicles. 
Harvested skin tissue is dissected under magnification and bespoke grafts are prepared, containing 1 to 4 hairs 
The hair grafts are inserted into the balding areas of the scalp in a pattern that looks natural 
The incision at the back or sides of the head is closed with dissolvable stitches/sutures (to be removed within 2 weeks), leaving a subtle linear scar underneath the existing hair

FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) 

The more popular FUE hair transplant method involves extracting hair follicles from the back or sides of the head using a mechanical circular punch. 
Follicles are harvested individually and are determined by the natural formation of the hair 
A series of tiny incisions is made with a needle where the extracted follicles are then inserted 
The incisions are left to heal naturally without the need for stitches/sutures (the harvested area will be almost undetectable within 2 weeks) 

Facial Hair Restoration 

A facial hair transplant procedure is similar to a standard hair transplant procedure in the way that the hair follicles are harvested from the back or sides of the head. These follicles are then inserted into incisions that have been meticulously made by the surgeon to the facial regions. 
The ability to grow facial hair is primarily determined by genetics and, with today’s fashion favouring thick brows and full beards, facial hair transplants are on the rise. That’s why, at UK Hairline, we offer revolutionary facial hair restoration options, including eyebrow transplants and beard transplants. See more details below.

Eyebrow Transplant: 

There are many different reasons why you can lose part or all of our eyebrow hairs. Age is usually a factor but stress, anxiety and hormone deficiencies can all have a part to play. Although semi permanent tattooing is still the most common treatment for thinning or non existent brows, this treatment can only mimic the effect of real hair.

Half of the male population find it difficult to grow a full and healthy beard. With todays fashions a thick defined beard is becoming extremely popular. A beard transplant does exactly what your genetics and other factors won’t allow you to do. The procedure is pretty much the same as a having a hair transplant in the way the hair is initially harvested from the back/sides of the head. The recipient incisions are then meticulously made to the facial regions, designing the look of your new facial hair.
