Receding hair is a natural part of ageing and most, if not all, men will experience some form of receding hairline during their lifetime. We understand this can be difficult for a man’s self-esteem – particularly at a younger age. This can be particularly true for women who are experiencing receding or balding. So can a hair transplant fix your hairline? The short answer is – yes! Just look at some of our before and after photos below.
Can a hair transplant fix my hairline?
Hair transplants are often used to restore receding hairlines as the images above show. First and foremost, it is very important to ensure a natural look when undergoing an FUE hair transplant.
At KSL Clinic, we understand how difficult it is to choose the right clinic and surgical team. Our experienced surgeons and team work solely for us and have collectively carried out the procedure 1000’s of times. Many people choose to travel abroad for cheaper options, but this can mean that your transplant is not implemented to the highest standards.
A hair transplant will not fix your receding hairline overnight, but it is a permanent, long-term solution.
How to recognise if your hair is receding:
The rate at which your hair recedes can differ greatly from the next individual. In order to understand whether a hair transplant could be of use to you, we’d recommend arranging a free consultation where you’ll receive an accurate quote and a tailored treatment plan.
It is important to understand if your hair is truly receding. The following signs could confirm that it is:
- Thinning or uneven hair above your temples
- Bald patches on or along your hairline
- A hairline that forms the shape of the letters V or M
What are the types of hair transplants?
There are two main methods of a hair transplant, Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) and Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE).
FUT hair transplants are also known as the “strip method”. This involves removing a strip of hair from the back of the scalp, which is then cut into small pieces (between one and four follicles). The follicles are then implanted into incisions on the scalp.
In contrast, the FUE hair transplant is a minimal surgery and less invasive. In this process, the transplant is implemented follicle by follicle in the same direction as your normal hair growth, creating a natural-looking new hairline. This typically makes FUE the best choice to tackle your receding hairline. We also offer top-quality aftercare treatments and regular reviews to ensure that your new hairline has fully recovered and is growing as it should.
Does it work straight away?
We know that you will be hoping for fast results with your hair transplant. Unfortunately, it is not as simple as walking out from your treatment with a new hairline. You will begin to see new hair growth within a few months of your treatment (we don’t typically expect to see any growth between 3-5 months).
How long will my transplant last?
A hair transplant is not a temporary measure. A well-implemented hair transplant, by an experienced team could last forever.
How long does a hair transplant take?
As a minimally invasive procedure, your FUE hair transplant will usually take between six to eight hours, depending on how large your case is. It only requires local anaesthesia, meaning that you are able to leave straight after your procedure and are able to drive yourself home.
How much will it cost to fix my receding hairline?
The cost of your transplant will depend on a number of factors. The good news is that a consultation with the experts at KSL Clinic is always completely free – with no obligation to continue with the process. Our team will discuss your needs with you in detail and provide you with a transparent pricing plan and bespoke process for your hair and scalp.
We offer all our patients a 12 month hair transplant finance payment plan, helping you to budget and plan ahead – you will receive your quote the day of your consultation.
Is the procedure painful?
The FUE hair transplant process is minimally invasive, keeping the likelihood of pain low. We inject anaesthetic directly into your scalp, and utilise small needles with an experienced surgeon and team who know how to deliver the best results, without causing too much discomfort.
Once the procedure is complete, we provide painkillers in your aftercare pack to help alleviate any discomfort over the next several days.
Will my results look natural?
With an FUE hair transplant, our experts will ensure that the follicles are implanted specifically where you need them to ensure the best results. Each follicle will grow back in the same direction as the rest of your hair, giving you a cohesive, natural-looking hairline.
